Healthcare – Hair Loss

Factors responsible for hair loss or baldness.

Shedding of hair is normal as long as its count is within 125 follicles per day. It is part of a natural balance as some fall out while others grow. When the balance interrupts, and the hair-fall rate is more than its growth rate, we call it hair loss. Excess hair fall leads to bald spots and unusual wide partings. Hair loss sounds simple, but the result is devastating. Healthy or bouncy hair changes our appearance and is one of the secrets of a beautiful face. Hair loss may happen among women as a postpartum symptom, use of chemicals, specific hairstyle, lack of nutrients, stress, or menopause. Ringworms, sudden emotional shock, and hereditary alopecia sometimes cause receding hairline or broadening of the part.
