Does finding hairs in the basin when i shower, on my towel when I dry and also on my comb indicate ensuing baldness? The answer is no, well not necessarily.
Most people lose about 100 strands of hair daily, which are replenished naturally by
your bodys natural hair growing cycle. When we look at a hair brush of a woman, usually full of hair assume that she is going bald?, even when she seemingly shows no sign of baldness.
Why Am I Going Bald?
The fact is that Male pattern baldness or Androgentic Alopecia, accounting for 90% of baldness in men is caused by a process called hair miniaturization. Hair miniaturization is a phenomenon in which strands of hair become thinner, shorter, more brittle, or weak with each successive progression through the hair growth cycle. Over time, the miniaturization process leads to the appearance of thin or lacklustre hair. In some cases, hair may stop growing altogether. No matter what the cause, hair miniaturization is one of the most common conditions that ultimately lead to pattern baldness. It can however be effectively treated when diagnosed early, helping the affected individual experience a better quality of life.
Dihydrotestosterone, or DHT, is another common cause of hair miniaturization. DHT is a special form of testosterone that is created when testosterone is synthesized by the enzyme 5α-reductase. The rate at which this synthesis occurs, and thus the amount of DHT present in the scalp, may differ greatly from one individual to the next. High levels of DHT may have an adverse affect on the health and functionality of hair follicles by causing them to shrink over time; eventually, DHT may even cause the hair follicle to disappear. In this way, DHT drives the hair miniaturization process by slowly rendering the hair follicle incapable of sustaining normal hair growth. Like any health problem if you notice excessive hair loss, it is recommended to seek professional advice
Is it true that there is no treatment for baldness?
There is no absolute cure for baldness, however there are new and effective processes that are effective and can often even neutralize baldness.
Medications such as Minoxidil or Finasteride are recommended for certain phases of mniaturization and new methods of hair transplantation,restoration and even replication are proven effective against baldness and its effects.
