Hair Loss Clinic
Are you or a loved one starting to lose your hair? Have you noticed small balding patches on your head? If so, we can help at our hair loss clinic. For many people, losing your hair is a natural part of life, often being caused by genetics. In general, the average person loses around 100 hairs every day. This is completely normal and doesn’t usually cause any signs of thining as new hair grows out as you lose old hair. Hair loss is caused when the cycle of growth and shredding is disrupted, or when the hair follicle is replaced with scar tissue after an injury or accident.
There are a wide range of factors that can cause hair loss and in general, it is attributed to multiple factors. No matter what has caused your hair loss, we can provide you with the best hair loss treatment to grow your hair back as soon as possible. Here are some of the factors that are commonly associated with hair loss.
Main Causes Of Hair Loss
Family History (headed). This is the most common cause of hair loss in Singapore and is known as a hereditary condition known as male-pattern baldness or female-pattern baldness. It is a natural process that occurs during the ageing process and has a very predictable pattern. It starts with a receding hairline and balding spots in men and for women starts with thinning hair. This process is completely natural and not something to worry about.
Changes in hormones and medical conditions. Balding and hair loss can be caused by a wide range of different reasons, one of which is hormonal changes during pregnancy, childbirth, menopause and any thyroid problems. Medical conditions also include alopecia areata which is known for causing patchy hair loss, scalp infections, ringworm and a hair-pulling disorder which causes significant hair loss.
Lack of certain vitamins & having certain Sexually transmitted disease .
Medications and supplements. With many drugs, hair loss is a common effect. For example, drugs used for cancer, heart problems, depression, arthritis, gout and high pressure all have the side effect of hair loss.
Radiation therapy. When undergoing radiation therapy, your hair may not grow back as it was prior to the therapy and in some cases may not grow back at all. This is usually the case when undergoing radiation therapy to the head.
Extreme stress. When undergoing extreme stress for a long period of time, or an extremely stressful event, you will experience the thinning of your hair for several months. This is usually temporary and may occur for a year after the initial shock or stressful event.
Certain hairstyles and treatments. This is more common for individuals who excessively use hairstyles that pull your hair tight such as pigtails and cornrows. This causes a hair loss known as traction alopecia. In addition to this, treatments such as hot oil hair can result in your hair not growing back. If you undergo any scarring around the head, hair loss could be permanent.
