What Are The Casues Of Hair Loss

Jan 26, 2008
There are many factors that lead to hair loss, among these are hormones, stress, heredity, diet, and illness. Some of these like stress, diet and illness are of a more temporary nature and once conditions improve you will see that your hair is growing normally once again.

Hormones and heredity are a much more different matter. Heredity is a condition that is irreversible. Your parents pass certain physical traits along to there children and hair loss can often be one of these. With hormones, it is completely different and they will have effect people differently.

With males, testosterone is produced in abundance. There are enzymes that alter testosterone, this in turn produces something called DHT. DHT is known to be present in the blood and also it can cause other conditions, the shrinking of the hair follicles is one of these. If a hair follicle shrinks, enough it will be unable to grow or produce new hair. With the old hair dying constantly falling, it will not be replaced as is normally the case.

In Women, a hormonal imbalance can be the cause of hair loss. Menopause, pregnancy and even childbirth can all significantly change hormonal levels in the body leading to both mental and physical effects. This can lead to hair loss either permanent or temporary.

There have been hair loss and hair re growth products around for centuries. In the ancient times, they used a variety of oil based and herbal remedies that had ranging degrees of effectiveness.

The modern medical research community has mainly focused on different ways to open or stimulate the semi dead hair follicles, allowing hair growth to occur naturally again, as well as keeping the normal hair follicles healthy. This has lead to many products being available, some you can get over the counter and others you will need a prescription.

One main ingredient in many of these hair loss products is Minoxidil. There has been research done to show that about 80% of people will find that this helps to slow hair loss and also can cause regrowth in some.

One product that contains minoxidil and has been shown in studies to work well is Provillus. This has an added ingredient, Azelaic Acid, which helps to accelerate the repair of hair follicles. You should consider these products to be more long term and it may take 3-6 months in order to see noticeable results.
