The effects of hair loss on self-image and self-esteem have been well documented, with the psychological effect significant among both men and women. Hair loss has even been associated with clinical signs of depression. There are very few treatment options, particularly if the cause of the hair loss is unknown.
“The discovery of a medication that will safely and effectively increase hair growth in men and women would be a substantial development in the physical and psychological treatment of hair loss.” – Dr. Richard Asarch, MD
What Causes Hair Loss?
The exact cause of hair loss may not be fully understood, but it is generally related to one or more of the following factors:
- Family history (heredity)
- Hormonal changes
- Medical conditions
Hair loss in women is more commonly associated with low thyroid function, emotional stress, physical stress (after giving birth or following a surgical procedure), the use of oral contraceptives and nutritional deficiencies than with androgenic alopecia (male pattern baldness). Often, more than one cause is present.
People typically shed 50 to 100 hairs a day. This does not usually result in noticeable thinning of the scalp hair because new hair is growing in at the same time. Hair loss occurs when this cycle of hair growth and shedding is disrupted or when the hair follicle is destroyed and replaced with scar tissue.
Although, certainly less common in women than in men, androgenic alopecia does occur in about 15 % of women. This disease is believed to be caused by an underlying susceptibility of hair follicles to androgenic hormones. Beginning treatment as soon as hair loss is apparent is important, because prolonged androgenetic alopecia may destroy the hair follicles over time.
