Causes of hair loss are:
1. Environmental factors
3. Deficiency of certain minerals, vitamins & amino acids in diet. e.g. Iron, zinc, Vit B complex, lysine.
4. Hormonal factors. e.g. Thyroxine
5. Any incidence of surgery, shock, etc.
1. Treating the underlying cause
2. Avoidance of stress
3. Dietary modifications
solution to be applied locally to stimulate the hair follicles
& multi mineral supplementation
But these medications have to be used regularly under the guidance of a Dermatologist, as hair loss tends to return on stoppage of these medications.
And before initiation of these medications, the problem of dandruff should be addressed.
Dandruff is basically Seborrheic dermatitis
& can be treated with shampoos or lotion containing salicylic acid
, coal tar, ketoconazole
, or selenium.
So, it will be better to consult a Dermatologist
to find out the underlying cause & start treatment accordingly.
Those cases which do not respond to medical therapy, are managed by hair transplantation
It is believed that it is normal to shed 100 hairs each day, which is based on the assumption that the average scalp has 100,000 hairs, and 10% of these are in the resting phase.
So, there is no need to worry.
Your hairs will grow back again.
The greying of hairs is genetically determined (as seen in your uncles) & also depends on environmental factors & lack of certain essential nutrients in diet.
Wishing you a Good Health.
Let me know if I need to clarify further.
Thanks & take care.
