Suffering from hair fall.

Hair fall can be caused due to several factors. But first, it is important to know what is normal hair loss? This is the hair loss that everybody has and the number of hair falling everyday vary from ten to hundred. Many people mistake this as hair loss and go to the doctor. It is very important to realize that this is normal and does not need treatment. In addition, hair loss can be classified as localized loss and generalized loss - as temporary hair loss and permanent hair loss. Most causes for hair loss do not result in baldness, and the common condition that we see as baldness is refered to as common baldness. Causes such as systemic diseases, local skin diseases, emotional stress, endocrine problems, anemia, vitamin deficiency, drugs, cancer, rheumatic disease can cause hair loss but most of these are temporary and once the primary condition is treated, the hair returns.

Hair transplants and scalp reduction surgery are available to treat androgenetic alopecia when more conservative measures have failed. During transplantation a dermatologist or cosmetic surgeon takes tiny plugs of skin, each containing one to several hairs, from the back or side of the scalp. The plugs are then implanted into the bald sections. Several transplant sessions may be needed as hereditary hair loss progresses with time. Scalp reduction means decreasing the area of bald skin on the head. The scalp and the top part of the head may seem to have a snug fit. But the skin can become flexible and stretched enough for some of it to be surgically removed. After hairless scalp is removed, the space is closed with hair-covered scalp. Surgical procedures to treat baldness are expensive and can be painful. Possible risks include infection and scarring.

mproper hair cosmetic use or improper hair care - Many men and women use chemical treatments on their hair, including dyes, tints, bleaches, straighteners and permanent waves. These treatments rarely damage hair if they are done correctly. However, the hair can become weak and break if any of these chemicals are used too often. Hair can also break if the solution is left on too long, if two procedures are done on the same day, or if bleach is applied to previously bleached hair. If hair becomes brittle from chemical treatments, it is best to stop until the hair has grown out.
