Have you ever thought that Hair Loss Is Not Natural? Well, you’re not alone, because losing hair specially in your 20’s, isn’t natural at all.
The most common causes of shedding hair are linked to an increase in an androgen hormone called DHT. Managing this and other hormones is the key to reverse your hair loss. It’s much harder to re-grow new hair as opposed to keeping the hair you’ve already got.
In this article, we’re going to show you the early sings of balding, so that you can act while there’s still time.
Early signs And Symptoms of balding
1) Hair On The Pillow And In The Sink
First of all, it’s not about how many hairs you shed each day, it’s more about how quickly you are replacing them. But, it’s just painful seeing your hair all over your pillow instead of your head. To make it worse, the rest goes down the drill when you shower. That’s just catastrophic, isn’t it?
2) Pattern Baldness And Receding Hairline
The other thing to take note is that common balding takes place in a pattern. If your hair loss begins at the temples or the crown of the head, you may have male pattern baldness. Some men will get a single bald spot. Others experience their hairlines receding to form an “M” shape. In some men, the hairline will continue to recede until all or most of the hair is gone. That’s emotionally horrible! Click Here for more informations about Male Pattern Hair Loss.
3) Itchy, flaky Scalp
Itching or peeling scalp may cause embarrassment and discomfort. This may be caused by many reasons:
- Dandruff: a shedding of the skin on the scalp that leaves white flakes on the head, neck, and shoulders. It may be a form of a skin condition. Scratching or rubbing your head loosens the flakes. It’s hard to say goodbye to black clothes!
- Head lice: Little insects that cause itching and raw patches on the scalp. Head lice are most common in school-age children.
- Ringworm: a fungal infection of the outer layer of the scalp and in the hair. It usually causes a rash made up of circular patches with raised, red edges that resemble worms.
- Other skin condition: such as psoriasis, seborrhea and lichen planus.
4) Hair takes longer to grow
Because pattern hair loss comes from hair follicles entering a resting phase, as well as often being starved on nutrients and minerals. Your hair will take time to grow after a cut.
5) Thin wispy hair
Hair follicles typically get thinner, less radiant and lose some of their shine before eventually falling out. This happens due to many health issues such as:
ANAEMIA: A condition marked by a deficiency of red blood cells or of hemoglobin in the blood, resulting in pallor and weariness. Fewer red blood cells means less oxygen is carried to the scalp, which starves the follicles, and eventually causes gradual and uniform hair loss. The hair will appear wispy, and the scalp may be more visible than usual.
- EATING DISORDERS: The growing phase of the hair cycle is prematurely halted by reduced food intake. Those who lose weight suddenly, or limit their calorie intake to maintain a low weight, may well also have wispy, dull-looking hair. So eating a balanced diet with plenty of protein, Zinc & B complex is vital.
- THYROID PROBLEMS: The first sign of a thyroid disorder can be hair loss. Too much or too little thyroid hormone in the body affects the metabolism and the hair-growth cycle.
- STRESS: Stress can cause premature greying. Hormones released in the body during stressful events affect the absorption of B vitamins needed for pigmentation. Resulting in clumps of hair loss, often starting with a small bald patch on the head or in facial hair in men.
6) Genetics And Family History
when you are looking for early signs of balding, you might want to consider your relatives (on both side of the family tree) to see if any of them suffer from pattern baldness. Fathers, Uncles, and Grandfathers will give you a good indicator of the likelihood that you might be seeing the beginning stages of male pattern baldness.
So, What are your options?
The earlier you catch pattern hair loss, the easier it is to do something about it. There are some 100% natural options to help you through.
Consider taking Propecia, which is a drug that can help prevent any further hair loss. However, many men find that the side-effects just aren’t worth the risk. Or just change your lifestyle and follow a good diet by reducing glycemic index and removing foods from your diet that could be causing a delayed allergic reaction to your hair.
