Welcome to HCM,
I have read your query, some hair loss conditions go by the name "effluvium," which means an outflow. Effluviums characteristically affect different phases of the hair growth cycle. The cycle through a growth stage that can last two or more years, then regress to a resting stage for up to two months before starting to grow a new hair fiber again. At any time on a healthy human scalp, about 80% to 90% of the hair follicles are growing hair. These active follicles are in what is called the anagen phase. That leaves up to 10% to 20% percent of scalp hair follicles in a resting state called telogen, when they don't produce any hair fiber. Telogen effluvium (TE) is probably the most common form of hair loss, TE happens when there is a change in the number of hair follicles growing hair. People with TE never completely lose all their scalp hair, but the hair can be noticeably thin in severe cases. With Telogen Effluvium, a sudden or stressful event can cause certain hair follicles to prematurely stop growing and enter into the telogen (resting) phase. The hairs affected by Telogen Effluvium will then stay in the resting phase for about 3 months after which time they will shed. A lack of a mineral, vitamin, or essential amino acid can certainly cause TE, diets can be completely deficient in one or more nutrients. Will recommend to consult your physician or dermatologist and identify the cause to prevent further hairloss and use medication which have strong scientific evidence and not by suggestions as it will affect your Quality of life if not adequately controlled at this young age. Thanks
