Healthy hair is essentially dead at its length, but it is actually attached to a living reproducing structure- the root, which is situated just below the surface of the scalp. Living cells within the root produce hair and, if not properly nourished, their ability to make hair is badly affected. As we age, there are some physical changes that will inevitably take place and unfortunately, hair loss could be one of them. Hair loss or baldness could strike men and women alike. The usual sign is thinning at the crown and temples first followed by wider hair loss of the scalp thus being more visible.
Although hair loss is not a serious condition or a disease, many who suffer from it often feel bad about their loss and can suffer from low self-esteem and low confidence. It not only makes them feel unattractive but it can also hamper depression. Excessive hair loss can be caused by hormonal problems if female or male hormones (estrogens and androgens) are out of balance. Correcting the hormone imbalance may stop your hair loss. Your hair may also fall out if your thyroid gland is overactive or underactive. Depending on the cause of hair loss, you can stop it by determining the root cause and with a professional help, get the appropriate approach for solving the core issues of baldness. There are recommended procedures that have been proven effective that may also work for your individual needs. With these techniques, you are sure to find one that will help you through your journey in regaining not only your hair, but also your confidence and self-esteem.
