hair loss







Although a common concern, hair loss is a harsh reality to accept and live with. What’s more disheartening, is the fact that it alters one’s appearances leading to drastic effects on one's self-esteem and confidence.

A bald and a bitter truth - about half of the population has experienced some sort of hair loss issue before their 50th birthday. No wonder the number of people losing hair today has been increasing but, surprisingly the age group of people suffering from the same hair loss problem is getting younger by the day.

From the 1970s to the early 1990s, 33% of men and 6-7% of women were losing hair. Moreover, 75% of people visiting Advanced Hair Studio for hair loss treatments, across the globe were aged between 40 and 60.

Cut to the present time. Numbers stand at 70% for men and 40% for women, with 80% of clients aged between 20 and 40 who need hair loss solutions or some kind of hair fall treatment. The following snapshots highlight the psychological impact and causes of hair loss.

What is a Hair loss Specialist – consultant?

A hair loss specialist is a senior consultant who has worked in the hair loss treatment industry for many years and is primarily concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of different types of hair loss, hair thinning and various hair fall related problems that occur at any stage of life. A hair loss specialist also gives non-medical treatment options for those problems.

When should I see/visit a Hair loss Specialist?

You should consult/visit a Hair loss treatment specialist if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms:

  • A bald patch that has suddenly appeared on your scalp
  • Excess oiliness or dryness on the scalp
  • Extreme or persistent itching
  • Scaliness on the scalp
  • Hair thinning / hair loss over time
  • Scalp becoming visible
  • Excessive hair shedding or falling out
  • Severe hair breakage after receiving a chemical service
  • Hair not growing / poor quality hair

A fully qualified hair loss specialist will carefully examine your hair and scalp thoroughly to assess the problem and its underlying cause. A microscopic examination might be required to aid in the diagnostic process. The hair loss specialist will then recommend to you what kind of treatment would be most suitable and necessary and may refer you to a medical doctor if needed.

Can my lifestyle affect hair loss?

Yes, your lifestyle may have a huge impact on the level of the healthiness of your hair. From the food we eat to our quality of sleep to the amount of exercise, hairstyling techniques, leisure activities and all the social and psychological activities all of these events play a very crucial part for matters pertaining to hair. On numerous occasions, the underlying cause of hair loss or hair thinning can be traced back to a situational factor in your lifestyle.

Can my diet cause hair loss?

Yes, an improper diet is also a key factor that affects the hair growth and which not only can be seen through your scalp but also in your entire well-being. A healthy diet with the right mix of protein, iron, and other nutrients can help improve the health, look, and feel of your hair. Your hair needs the same well-rounded diet that provides all the recommended vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients needed for good health in the rest of your body. Many vegetarians suffer hair loss, hair thinning, or scalp problems due to a lack of complete proteins in their diet. A healthy lifestyle is the key to keep you fit overall. So, please get ample amount of sleep as insufficient sleep may aggravate the problem of hair loss. Also, say no to smoking and excess alcohol as they also aggravate the problem of hair loss.

Does washing my hair too frequently affect hair loss?

Generally speaking, excessive hair washing is most likely not the cause for your hair loss. Your hair care products and styling techniques may weaken and cause dryness and breakage and even stunt your hair growth, but washing cannot cause an unusual amount of hair loss.

Are there different types of hair loss?

There are many different types of hair loss. The most distressing type is permanent hair loss. In addition, there is hair loss that is temporary, hair loss in patches, or hair that is shed from all over the scalp.

What is alopecia areata?

This is a patchy type of hair loss often appearing as distinct circles of hair loss, but in severe cases it can progress to complete baldness. The condition is thought to be a systemic autoimmune disorder in which the body attacks its own anagen hair follicles and suppresses or stops hair growth. Many women have complete, spontaneous recovery without a need for hair treatment, however having hair loss treatment can hasten the recovery time.

In what ways can hair loss affect people’s life?

Hair loss can have a devastating influence on a person’s quality of life, especially in women, because hair loss is often wrongly considered a less significant psychological and emotional problem for women than it is for men. Too often, hair loss in women is not taken seriously by family and friends or even by a woman’s personal doctor. People experiencing hair loss can be affected in the following ways:

  • Loss of self-esteem – Hair is a person’s ‘crown of glory’ and to losing it is a direct attack on their sense of femininity/masculinity and beauty.
  • Anxiety and Depression – Constantly worrying about hair causes anxiety and can lead to psychological and emotional effects. It can even go so far as to affect one’s sex life.
  • Social dysfunction – Many people stop going to social events and it can lead to situations where they refuse to leave the home.
  • Loss of control – Being so concerned with hair loss can occupy a person’s thoughts all day, eventually leading to obsessions such as collecting hair that is shed every day.
  • Lack of support – When hair loss is not taken seriously by friends and family, one can feel the lack of support.

And so proper hair fall treatment or hair loss solution is very important for a person suffering from hair loss.

Is hair loss a common problem?

Hair loss is a very common problem faced by most people at some point of time in their life. About half of the general population has experienced some sort of hair loss by around the age of 50. Many factors such as diseases and medicines can cause you to lose more hair than normal. Although hair loss is fairly common, it can be a tough thing to live with; especially when it changes your look; then it can severely reduce your self-esteem. So, it is advisable to get a proper hair loss solution for your hair loss issue.

Can young adults experience hair loss too?

Many people relate hair loss to old age, and there is a certain truth in this: as we age, many of us naturally lose some or all of our hair in the process. But hair loss is not just something that only the middle-aged or the elderly experience. It can also affect the teen and young adults. There are a number of hair loss conditions that can affect even the very young to varying degrees. Male Pattern Baldness is one such condition, and a surprisingly high number of young men who feel that they are too young to lose their hair, need hair loss solutions. It is estimated that half of all men will suffer from male pattern hair loss to some degree by their 50th birthday, but for approximately 25% of men with the condition, they will start losing their hair when they are in their late teens or early twenties. Nutritional hair loss is more common in young people who don’t eat properly, who participate in medicine use and use nicotine. Alopecia areata is common in young people, as well as hair loss from ringworm and trichotillomania due to hair pulling from anxiety.

Can stress cause hair loss or hair thinning?

If you’re constantly on the go and not taking any time to wind down, your stressful lifestyle could indeed be creating a wreaking havoc on your hair. Stress increases cortisol levels and induces the hormone changes that are responsible for hair loss. By learning and practicing effective stress-management techniques, you can help yourself to reduce the severity of the symptoms and get your hair loss solution.

Can daily use of shampoo and conditioner prevent/mitigate hair loss?

The use of shampoos will not lead to hair loss or make it worse, except in the case of dry damaged and brittle hair. Shampoo containing strong alkaline can cause further dryness and can encourage breakage to already weak hair. Shampoos that claim to help hair loss coat the hair with protein to make it cosmetically ‘fatter’ but do nothing to solve the underlying disorder.

What is the most effective hair loss treatment?

As there are many causes of hair loss, there are also many different hair loss treatments available. This is why a consultation with a hair specialist is most necessary in order to diagnose the problem and the stage of hair loss, and offer the most effective hair loss treatment specifically suiting one’s expectations and personality.

How do I know what hair loss treatment is right for me?

When it comes to hair loss, a prompt professional consultation is the key. Everybody is different, and one cannot expect a home remedy or an over-the-counter medicine to work on all people.

Do I need one or more types of treatment?

A combination of two procedures may be necessary to achieve the desired results. For advanced stages of hair loss, only a combination of two treatments would give you the best possible results. Advanced Hair Studio is the only company that can provide a combination of procedures under the same roof to give you a full head of hair back.

What can I do to prevent hair loss?

  • Eat a well balanced diet with a combination of complex carbohydrates, protein, and low fats. Avoid high sugar snacks.
  • If you need to lose weight, avoid fast crash diets that can often cause hair loss. Follow only a doctor recommended diet with NO stimulants.
  • Take a multivitamin with a small amount of iron, especially during the childbearing years. Hair is extremely sensitive to small iron deficiencies.
  • Learn to deal with stress better: meditation, yoga, exercise, etc.
  • Avoid hair care practices that are harsh on your hair and can damage the hair and its root. Examples include frequently pulling back hair in a tight manner, corn rows, tight braids, using a hot iron, straighteners, excessive blow drying, hot curlers, and prolonged perms for curl or chemical straighteners.
  • If you must color your hair, have it done professionally using products that do not contain peroxide and ammonia.
  • If you are a young woman on oral contraceptives, make sure it is the type that can help rather than contribute to hair loss. If your hair is naturally thin, have an open discussion with your doctor before starting any hormones.

How far back should one check for history in the family?

Carefully examine your extended family including grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc. If there is a family history of hair loss in men or women, be aware that it could happen to you and seek help at the earliest sign. Seek out a hair loss specialist.
