The causes of hair loss



The most common alopecia:

Measurement of the cycles and the hair follicle produces less than that simple down. Capillary density is reduced. It is alopecia.

Definition: stiffening of the connective sheath causing the slowdown of the development of the hair follicle and thinning of the hair.


This phenomenon is very common after 50 years (senile alopecia), it is indicative of our aging. Alopecia can occur after childbirth, trauma, taking antibiotics, etc. There are therefore different types of alopecia.

Andro-genetic alopecia :

Hormones are responsible. Andro-genetic alopecia is due to a presence of testosterone hormones. Receivers (5 Alpha Reductase enzymes) placed in the heart of the hair transform this testosterone into DHT (dihydrotestosterone). If we have no genetic ground for alopecia, no damage is expected. Conversely, if we bear genes, a harmful sequence occurs. DH T secretion is there and follicles work more properly. They degrade gradually, the development of the hair becomes abnormal. Hair are refined, turn down and disappear. Hair cycles become more rapid. The process of hair loss is installed.

Note : the area called "baldness" is insensitive to the increase in DHT due to a difference of receiver. That is why there is often a Crown of hair.

Seborrheic alopecia :

If sebum is too much present in the follicle, it stifles the development of hair. The hair becomes much more sensitive to the phenomena of traction. They are less resistant. Note that this does not mean that all people with oily hair will develop alopecia, but that these people are part of a population at risk.

Women are the most affected. A loss of hair may be the result of a weak general State. Vitamin is essential, and helps nourish the hair permanently. Thus, certain deficiencies weaken the hair and causes his condition.

Here are a few causes of hair loss.

Iron deficiency is most prevalent among the population. It does not allow the blood to oxygenate properly. As a result, the hair becomes dull and weakens. Women are the most affected. Indeed, it is during the menstrual cycle, that iron deficiency is the most important. The hair cycle is shortened. This causes a loss of hair in large quantities.

Trace elements also play an important role. Magnesium, potassium, zinc... Their rarity and their decline in our bodies can cause a temporary drop. A deficiency in vitamins B8 quickly brings failure and impaired capillary growth. Our power is not always enough to absorbs minerals in sufficient quantity. Therefore, it is necessary to take supplements. They will fill different gaps ensuring immediate absorption. The hair will regain brightness and vigour.

Traction alopecia :

Excessive styling! Some styling considerably damaged hair (braids, straightening...). Traction permanent pulls hair root, on a long term, hair loss appears. This phenomenon is recurrent in India, Africa and the Caribbean. Too tight braids cause the uprooting of the hair and its bulb, blisters, rashes...

These types of too violent pulls weaken the hair. If the repetition of these gestures is regular, the hair can no longer postpone.

The stress ! Stress is a factor aggravating the fall of hair. It causes negative results as a secretion of androgens in exponential way promoting the fall of hair. The contraction of the blood vessels causes poor of the hair follicle development due to asphyxia. Then, a never-ending vicious circle is taking place. The more we stressons, more hair fall... More hair fall and more we stressons! Also, a major and sudden, stress as a car accident or the loss of a loved one, may be at the origin of an immediate loss of hair: This is the Telogen effluvium. In general, it is not definitive.

How do I know if a hair fall is abnormal?

Hair loss is a difficult situation to live with, much by men than by women. The psychological impact can be very important. But at what point should we consider that fall of hair is "abnormal"?

To find out if we go beyond the ceiling of a normal fall of hair (losses between 60 and 100 hairs per day), there is a small test to do that I advise you: watch the hairs that remained on the pillow and those on the comb after hair brush. If the number exceeds 100, immediate treatment is necessary.

In brief.....

Whatever the level of alopecia, it must be take into account and act quickly!

More time passes, and more hair weakens. Then, three steps are necessary:

1. take food supplements to nourish the hair in depth.

2. quickly treat the hair, without delay, four months minimum.

3. Optimize the previous care with Shampoo and Conditioner.
