Hair Loss - Understanding Its Types!

Hair Loss - Understanding Its Types!

At any point of time, only 90% of your hair is growing. The remaining 10% is resting and falls off after 2 to 3 months to make space for new hair follicles. Thus, while it is normal to shed a few strands of hair a day is normal, waking up to find multiple strands of hair on your pillow can be a nightmare for anyone.

Hair loss can be of many types and in order to treat it, you must first figure what type of hair loss you suffer from. Some of the main types of hair loss are:

  1. Involutional alopecia: This type of hair loss affects people who are middle aged and older. In such cases, more and more hair follicles go into the resting phase after which they fall off. The hair that remains becomes shorter and brittle making it easier to break.
  2. Telogen effluvium: Telogen effluvium is a temporary condition that causes changes in the hair follicle’s growth cycle and puts a number of hair follicles into the resting phase simultaneously. This is often experienced after a stressful event like a severe illness, childbirth, stress or sudden weight loss, and can last for anywhere between a few weeks to a few months.
  3. Male and female pattern baldness: For males, hair loss at the top of the scalp in an ‘M’ shape which gradually turns into a ‘U’ around the side of the head is a sign of pattern baldness. This condition makes hair follicle thinner, shorter and brittle and is triggered by genetic conditions. Both male and female pattern baldness have very gradual hair loss and so you may not notice significant thinning until quite late.
  4. Patchy hair loss: One of the most noticeable symptoms of this type of hair loss is one or two smooth, hairless spots. Apart from the scalp, it can also affect the eyebrows, arms, legs and facial hair. In most cases, this has a sudden onset. However, when hair grows back in one bald spot, it may fall out from another. In some cases, the hair may not fall out but may break, leaving behind patches of extremely short hair.
  5. Tinea capitis: This is a contagious fungal infection that affects the scalp of school-going children. It makes hair in certain patches or all over the scalp break off and triggers inflammation in the scalp. Pus-filled sores and a scaly scalp are other symptoms of this condition.
  6. Trichotillomania: Hair fall can also be triggered if you twist or pull your own hair. This psychological disorder often affects children and causes hair loss by breakage.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Are You The Right Candidate for Hair Transplant?

Are You The Right Candidate for Hair Transplant?

Gone are the days when hair fall or hair problems were primarily associated with old age. In today's world, the environmental pollution, stress, health problems have made hair loss a common problem. People in their early 20's and 30's are suffering from severe hair loss. The hair fall, thinning scalp, baldness in both men and women (often an outcome of Alopecia) brings about endless humiliation and mockery. With self-confidence gone for a toss, hair fall also affects the overall appearance of a person (makes a person look aged and unattractive). For people dealing with severe hair loss (often permanent), hair transplant surgery comes as a savior that can put an end to their misery.

What is Hair Transplantation?
In hair transplantation, we have a donor site and a recipient site. The donor site contains the healthy hair follicles that can be used for the hair transplantation. The recipient site, on the other hand, is the site where the transplantation is to take place. Thus, a hair transplantation in simple terms is a procedure that involves the transplantation of hair follicles from the donor site (can be from the sides or the back of the head) into the recipient site for permanent hair restoration. In this regard, it is important to mention about the two widely used hair transplantation techniques- the Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) and the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE).

Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT):

  1. Also known as the Strip Method, in FUT, a strip of tissue is obtained from the donor site.
  2. The next step involves extraction of the hair follicles (using stereomicroscope dissection) of the preferred size (from the obtained tissue strip).
  3. To carry out the grafting of the extracted hair follicles, the surgeon uses instruments with fine needle points to mark the recipient site.

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE):

  1. For the hair transplantation, the follicular units (from the donor site) need to be isolated from the neighboring tissues.
  2. For the segregation, tiny incisions (circular cuts of about 1mm) are carried out in the skin comprising of the follicular unit.
  3. The follicular units thus obtained are then grafted into the recipient site.

When compared between the two (FUE and FUT), FUE being less invasive with a quick healing time is the more preferred hair transplantation technique. 

The eligibility criteria for a hair transplantation
Not everyone with a hair fall problem is eligible for a hair transplantation. For a person (irrespective of their sexes) to undergo the hair restoration procedure

  1. People with medical conditions such as Diabetes, Chronic liver or kidney ailments, Hypertension, HIV, need a proper medical consultation and evaluation before opting for the hair transplantation.
  2. People with Diffuse Unpatterned Alopecia should refrain from the hair transplantation surgery.
  3. There is no age limit for hair transplantation. However, in patients below 18 years, one needs to be careful as their pattern of hair loss is still not clearly established.

No, it won't help acne and scars. It is a moisturiser containing urea. Should not be applied on the face.

Dear Sir/Madam, I'm using propygenta NF cream from past 2 years for improving my fairness. Recently I came to know it is used for reddish treatment. I did not find any side effects and even I became much fairer after using the cream. Is it safe to use the cream? Can I go for laser treatment for permanent solution to become fairer. Please advice.

Dear Sir/Madam,

You absolutely can't use propygenta for fairness. The skin will be permanently damaged by this cream. It will turn red, prominent veins and develop pimples.

It is not possible to change skin colour that you are born with. Use a good sunscreen with SPF 30 plus to prevent skin darkening.

How do we find out which SPF cream 10, 20.30. Etc should be used for tan? Is it depending on the age or on the amount you spend your day outside?

It depends on what time of the day you are out and get or how long. People who are exposed to continuous sun between 10 am to 3 pm, those who have a sun allergy or undergoing cosmetic treatment need SPF 50.

Avoid extreme sun exposure between 11 am to 3 pm. Start using a sunscreen. Do not rub your skin while wiping vigorously. Please visit a dermatologist for further treatment.

Shaving hair doesn't lead to any kind of increased hair growth. The new hair which grows feels a bit rough leading to the misunderstanding that hair is growing thicker.
