Other Causes of Hair Loss


Alopecia Areata (AA)

Alopecia Areata is the loss of hair in patches from the scalp or body. Affecting one person in every 100, it is much more common than many people think. The hair-loss is caused by an auto-immune response where the hair follicles which produce hair are attacked by white cells. As a result, hair growth stops, causing the follicle to enter the resting phase of its cycle. The hair follicles usually remain capable of re-growing; however hair growth is pretty unpredictable.


Female Pattern Hair Loss (FPHL)

Also known as Androgenetic Alopecia, occurring most commonly after the menopause. It is normal for the average person to shed hair on a daily basis. People with FPHL will lose more than 100 hairs frequently, with the replacement hair being much finer and weaker. FPHL is a genetically linked condition that can be inherited from both sides of the family.


Telogen Effluvium

Telogen Effluvium occurs when a period of physical or psychological stress interrupts the normal cycle of hair growth. This interruption causes the scalp follicles to enter a resting phase. Stressful experiences such as childbirth, severe infection, major surgery or hormone changes can cause the onset of Telogen Effluvium. The condition results in sudden and particularly noticeable hair loss.


Chemotherapy and Hair Loss

Chemotherapy results in cancer patients losing part or most of their hair. This hair loss is not usually permanent, and full re-growth generally occurs at the end of treatment. Using a cold cap throughout the chemotherapy treatment can help to reduce hair loss. However, the effect that these drugs have on the hair varies from patient to patient. Choosing Hair InXs to manage hair loss takes away one of the stressful factors that patients have to endure whilst undergoing treatment.


Radiotherapy and Hair Loss

Hair loss usually occurs after a course of radiotherapy, with the impact varying according to the dosage and frequency of the treatment. Hair loss will only usually occur at the site of treatment. Light-weight extensions can help to improve volume in the areas where the hair has become thin.


Frontal Fibrosing Alopecia

Frontal Fibrosing Alopecia is sometimes called Scarring Alopecia or Cicatricial Alopecia. This condition causes the first five inches of a woman’s hairline to fall out. Post-menopausal women most commonly suffer with this condition. It is thought that Frontal Fibrosing Alopecia is caused by the immune system attacking the hair follicles, which causes inflammation.
