Hair loss,

About 50-100 strands of hair can be shed normally per day. On the other hand, when there is a large amount of hair loss and visible thinning of the hair, it can be said that hair loss occurs. Depending on the price placed on the hair, hair loss can affect the person in varying degrees, from a mild concern to a significant breakdown. In men, the hairline goes back more than once and thinning begins, often the upper part of the hair falls out. In women, shedding from every region occurs at the same time. Unless the cause of hair loss is determined exactly, it is not possible to choose a correct treatment method. For this reason, those who have complaints of hair loss, weakness in hair follicles and thinning of hair strands should consult a dermatologist.

The increase in hair loss is easily understood by checking the hair loss on the pillow in the morning or after the shower. When combing or shaping the hair, the approximate extent of shedding can be determined and the change in this number can be noticed. Sometimes, it is noticed that the hair generally decreases within a certain period of time.

We have an average of 100,000 strands of hair and the life of a strand is 5 years on average. In other words, all of our hair is completely renewed every 5 years, which is possible when 50-100 strands of hair fall out and new ones grow in its place. To talk about hair loss, the daily loss must be more than 100 strands.

In a healthy person, about 90% of the hair is in the growth phase at once. This stage can last for 2-6 years. At this stage, the hair follicles are long and deep. The remaining 10% is in the resting phase, which lasts for 2-3 months. At the end of this resting phase, the hair falls out, new hair begins to grow from the root of the shed hair, and the cycle continues in this form. Most hair loss is caused by this normal hair growth cycle.

Causes of Hair Loss
Aging, genetic factors, nutritional disorders, especially iron and zinc deficiency, vegetarian diet, rapid weight loss, hormonal disorders, thyroid gland diseases, febrile diseases, puerperal diseases, tension, tension, sudden and severe grief, high dose vitamin A intake, cancer drugs and some other drugs, fungal diseases of the scalp can cause it.

The most common cause of hair loss is genetic predisposition. In this case, although there is a decrease in hair in women, baldness does not occur. In men, shedding can start from a very early age. One of the important reasons for women is hormonal changes such as pregnancy, puerperium, menopause, tension, nutrition, cosmetics and the effect of seasonal changes.

Techniques such as dyeing, bleaching, straightening or perming can damage the hair. The frequent or simultaneous application of these methods, the collection of hair in a tight form, frequent washing can contribute to this process.

Spill Types
Male pattern baldness is a genetic condition that affects about half of men throughout their entire life. If left untreated, half of men who reach the age of fifty remain completely or largely bald. The earlier the treatment is started, the more effective the result. Because when a region remains hairless for several years, hair growth is not possible here. In women, there may be shedding in the peak region, which is similar to male pattern hair loss after menopause.

Postpartum shedding: While most of the hair is growing in pregnant women, it can go into the resting phase after birth and shed for 2-3 months. After a while, the hair grows again and reaches its former density.

Patchy regional shedding: Sometimes there is loss of hair in neat rounds. Why exactly is unknown. In these shedding, which may be related to tension, although the hair may recover later on, treatment is sometimes recommended as it can progress rapidly.

In important diseases, the hair can go into the resting phase, but it regains its old form over time. Hair loss may occur, especially in thyroid gland diseases, and the loss can be eliminated with the treatment of the disease.

When protein cannot be taken from the diet as required, the body can put the hair in the resting phase to protect the protein. Some drugs such as birth control pills and some cancer treatments can stop the division of hair cells, patients may lose a large amount of their hair, but after the therapy ends, the hair returns to its original state. Iron deficiency can also cause hair loss. Precious surgery and chronic diseases can cause hair loss.

Fungal diseases: Fungal disease, which can start with crusting in small patches and spread, causing hair breakage, redness and swelling on the scalp, and leakage, can also cause shedding. Children and sometimes adults with hair pulling disease may pull hair, eyebrows or eyelashes until they break.
