Does the hair leave? From these signs, you can identify whether it may be due to an illness

In addition to conventional hair loss, there is also one that has an illness that requires treatment. For example hypothyroidism and anemia can cause hair loss. The cause may also be nested in the scalp heather.

Usually the hair comes off evenly across the head, but if the hair loss is asymmetrical and patchy, it can be linked to a skin condition such as scalp redhead or hair follicle red lichen, where baldness is usually permanent. However, they are rare diseases.

Often the hair grows back

Even more often, bald spots were used for autoimmune disease pälvikaljusta. In it, the inflammation surrounding the hair root typically causes the hair to come off in areas of a couple of three square centimeters at a time.

Bald rock does not destroy the hair root, so when it eases, new hair grows in the bald areas. The same is true for most other diseases that cause hair loss: when the ailment is treated, the hair thickens. However, growing new hair takes months or years.

If hair thinning becomes a concern, the cause and with it the best treatment should be determined by a doctor.

If it is not a disease, help can be found in these

Many shampoos, conditioners and leave-in solutions promise to thicken. They can be tried for hair thinning. The scalp may be refreshed even if the hair is washed several times a week.

The fastest way to thicken hair is with hair care and styling products. Longer-term help may be with a solution of minoxidil (Rogaine) sold at a pharmacy. Female-type hair loss can be treated in part with the same medications as male-type hair loss.

Originally developed as an antihypertensive drug, minoxidil increases hair thickness and reduces hair loss, probably because it increases blood circulation in the hair follicle. It can be tried on those areas where the hair appears to be thinned. Ketoconazole shampoo may also slightly slow down hair loss.

If you suffer from hair loss to the extent that you want something other than topical treatment, you can try a prescription drug for the ailment. However, the effects of the drugs are slow, and often results are obtained only after six months of treatment.

Whether the cause of hair loss is illness or something else:

  • Dry your hair with a towel repeatedly, not rubbing.
  • Use the lowest possible temperatures when styling your hairstyle – even when blow-drying.
  • Avoid combing your hair wet. Wet hair stretches more dry than dry, and stretched hair breaks more easily.
  • Don’t keep a similar ponytail all the time. Rubbing the loop and pins breaks the hair.
  • Avoid tight knots. If the bun feels tight, it will probably also pull the hair out of its vagina.
