Do you have hair loss or hair shed glass?
If you've been noticing more hairs on your pillow or hairbrush than normal, you may worry that you have hair loss. You could actually just be shedding more hairs than normal. Yes, there is a difference.
Hair shedding often stops on its own
It's normal to shed between 50 and 100 hairs a day. When the body sheds significantly more hairs every day, a person has excessive hair shedding. The medical term for this condition is telogen effluvium.
Excessive hair shedding is common in people who have experienced one the following stressors:
Lost 20 pounds or more
Experiencing lots of stress (caring for a loved one who is sick, going through a divorce, losing a job)
Had high fever
Undergone an operation
Recovering from an illness, especially if had a high fever
Stopped taking birth control pills
Most people notice the excessive hair shedding a few months after the stressful event. For example, a new mom can see excessive hair shedding about two months after giving birth. The shedding usually peaks about four months after giving birth. This shedding is normal - and temporary.
As your body readjusts, the excessive shedding stops. Within 6 to 9 months, the hair tends to regain its normal fullness.
If the stressor stays with you, however, hair shedding can be long lived. People who are constantly under a lot of stress can have long-term excessive hair shedding.
Hair loss differs from hair shedding
Hair loss occurs when something stops the hair from growing. The medical term for this condition is anagen effluvium. The most common causes of hair loss include:
Hereditary hair loss
Immune system overreacts
Some drugs and treatments
Hairstyles that pull on the hair
Harsh hair care products
Compulsion to pull out one's hair
If you have hair loss, your hair will not grow until the cause stops. For example, people who undergo chemotherapy or radiation treatments often lose a lot of hair. When the treatment stops, their hair tends to regrow.
If you suspect that a treatment or drug is causing your hair loss, talk with your doctor. Serious side effects can occur if you immediately stop a treatment or drug.
Other causes of hair loss may require treatment. Many people who have hereditary hair loss continue to lose hair without treatment. A woman who inherits the genes for hereditary hair loss may notice gradual thinning. Men who have hereditary hair loss tend to develop a receding hairline or bald patch that begins in the center of the scalp.
Treatment helps many people who have hair loss, but not everyone. A dermatologist can tell you what to expect.
Dermatologist can distinguish between hair loss and hair shedding
If you are concerned about the amount of hair falling out, you don't need to suffer in silence. You can turn to a dermatologist for help. These doctors specialize in diagnosing and treating the skin, hair, and nails. A dermatologist can tell you whether you have hair loss or excessive hair shedding. Some people have both.
A dermatologist also can find the cause or causes and tell you what you can expect. Effective treatments options are available for many types of hair loss. The sooner treatment begins the better the prognosis.

Hair loss may not be a life threatening condition, but it can have a negative affect on a person’s self-image. For this reason, it is a good idea to explore hair transplant procedures for bald spots and thinning hair. This procedure involves harvesting hair follicles from one part of the scalp and transplanting them to another.
It can be performed either through follicular unit extraction or through follicular unit transplant procedures. The difference between the two lies in how the hair follicles are harvested. Follicular unit extraction is performed by harvesting individual hair follicles from various parts of the scalp while in a follicular unit transplant procedure, a strip of tissue with hair follicles is removed from the scalp and then divided into grafts.
When it comes to any procedure, “how much will it hurt?” Is the first question many people ask. Let’s take a look at the pain associated with this procedure.
The surgery is usually performed under local anesthesia and hence, most people do not feel anything during the procedure itself. However, in some cases, if the anesthesia begins to wear out in the middle of the procedure, it can be quite painful. Being put under local anesthesia involves injecting an anesthetic solution into the scalp to numb it. This can involve quite a few injections and can be a bit painful. The anesthetic’s expertise plays an important role in determining the amount of pain this generates.
The next thing you should know is that this procedure is a long procedure and a session can last anywhere between 6 to 8 hours. During this time, you need to sit upright with minimal movement. Though this is not painful, it can get uncomfortable. Your muscles may also protest at being in the same position for hours and get stiff.
After the procedure, your scalp may feel tender and there may be slight inflammation for a few days. Pain at this stage is generally minimal but most doctors prescribe painkillers to make the patient’s recovery more comfortable.
When it comes to pain, it is important to note that each individual has a different pain threshold. What seems mild to one person may be very painful to another. Hence, do not let yourself be too influenced by other people’s experience. Even if the procedure is a little uncomfortable, it’s effect on your self-confidence will make it well worth the effort. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can ask a free question.
