Improper hair care, a stressful event, a physical condition that alters your hormone levels—these are a few things that can literally make your hair fall out. You may notice your hair thinning or observe losing more strands than the normal amount. Most causes of hair loss, like too much hair bleaching or dye jobs, or styling the hair with tight braids and hair ties, can be altered to gradually get rid of the problem. In other causes, like pregnancy and chemotherapy, hair regrowth normally happens after.
There are some factors, however, that you cannot control or those that are difficult to resolve, which would urge you to get hair transplants. Here are five of those factors:
1. Having a Genetic Tendency
In androgenetic alopecia, hair thinning or hair loss is inherited from one or both parents, and it is more likely to happen if your mother showed the signs. Usually, the hair gets finer all around the scalp (not limited to certain patches or areas). The condition can be slowed through a medicated solution applied to the scalp or a drug taken by mouth, but in some cases, these could have side effects that some women cannot live with – or these medications may be ineffective to a particular person.
2. Having an Autoimmune Disorder
Hair loss can also happen in women who suffer autoimmune conditions, like lupus, psoriasis, and alopecia areata. In these disorders, your immune defenses are attacking your body instead of protecting it, and your hair follicles are one of the glands that are easily affected. Aside from your mane, other hairy parts of your body, like your eyebrows and legs, can lose hair as well. It can either be a diffused thinning (usually happens in lupus) or hair loss in patches (such as in alopecia areata).
3. Having Persistent Telogen Effluvium
Many cases of telogen effluvium (TE), which usually happen 6 weeks to 3 months after a severely stressful event such as major surgeries, pregnancies, and extreme weight loss, can be resolved as long as the woman doesn’t encounter high levels of stress. There are some women, though, who suffer TE as a chronic condition with no known cause and cure.
Hair restoration experts in Mexico, such as the professionals of Baja Hair Center, can assess your condition and recommend the hair loss management technique that best suits your situation. If you’re a good candidate for surgery, a board-certified professional can administer your hair transplant and provide ample medical advice for your quick recovery and for the maintenance of the results.
