Hair loss can be absolutely devastating for those experiencing it, no matter whether it’s total or partial hair loss. It can be very distressing and can have a big impact on a person’s self-esteem and confidence. But what causes alopecia, the general medical term for the condition?
There are several reasons as to why you could be thinning up top, whether it’s down to illness or stress, treatment for cancer, an iron deficiency, weight loss, a natural part of getting older or some other cause.
If you have started to notice more hair than usual in your brush each morning and are worried, it might be worth going to see your doctor to see what the problem could be. But don’t panic unduly at first – it’s normal to lose between 50 and 100 hairs each day, so it could be nothing to worry about at all.
The majority of hair loss cases actually don’t need any treatment whatsoever and you may well find that yours is temporary, with your hair growing back sooner rather than later. Hair loss as a result of medical conditions typically stops and the hair returns once you’ve recovered.
If you are concerned about your lack of hair, you might find that seeing a female hair loss specialist could be beneficial. They can advise you on your options where hiding your hair loss is concerned and will also be able to help you find the perfect wig to suit your face shape and skin tone.
