Although hair loss (alopecia) is a natural aging process, in some people, for a variety of causes, it may occur before senility. The problem may affect other parts of the body besides the scalp. It can also be temporary or permanent. Alopecia has different types; each has its specific treatment. PROCUTiN is a robust product manufactured by the OZiDEX company that can pave the way for hair loss stops.
If hair loss is severe, it can lead to baldness. Alopecia is more prevalent in men than in women. However, emotional, personal, and social complications are more common in women. This clinical problem can affect both sexes in a variety of ways.
Causes of Hair Loss
Hair falling can occur for different reasons, including hereditary, clinical complications, and hormonal changes.
• Hereditary or androgenic baldness
The most common cause of hair loss in both men and women is hereditary. This kind of hair falling manifests itself by the gradual hair thinning in women and receding hairline and bald spots in men. Although baldness also occurs in females, it is less severe than in the male.
• Hormonal changes
Pregnancy, childbirth, thyroid problems, and menopause can lead to hair loss. This type of alopecia can be permanent or temporary.
• Taking some medications
Drugs that cause hair dropping, fall into two categories:
1) Drugs that affect the hair during the growth phase, including chemotherapy drugs, colchicine, bismuth, thallium, and boric acid.
2) Drugs that affect the hair during the resting phase. Like some blood thinners, antihypertensives, hormones, antiepileptics, and anti-arthritis drugs.
Some birth control pills that inhibit ovulation can cause hair loss. In particular, if your family members have a history of hair loss, you are more likely to develop this complication.
• Unhealthy diet
Diets that cause rapid weight loss are harmful to the body. Hair loss is one of the complications of these types of slimming diets. Besides, deficiencies in some micronutrients such as iron, folic acid, and zinc can lead to hair loss. Fortunately, this type of alopecia is reversible.
• Clinical complications
Some diseases such as diabetes, lupus and autoimmune conditions such as alopecia areata can lead to hair loss. Skin parasites such as Demodex Mite can also cause or aggravate hair falling.
Hair Loss Treatment
Although some types of alopecia are incurable, others can be treated or at least controlled by removing or managing the underlying causes.
For example, if hair loss is due to the lack of nutrients, supplementation with iron, zinc, and other micronutrients that affect hair production and growth can reverse this condition.
Some types of hormonal hair loss are controlled by medications such as finasteride or thyroid hormones.
On the other hand, some treatments help hair regrowth through general mechanisms. For example, minoxidil boosts blood flow to the follicle, strengthens it, and prevents hair from falling out. It takes six months for minoxidil to reduce hair loss and increase hair growth significantly.
Another general (and sometimes specific) treatment for hair loss is to clean the skin of harmful parasites called Demodex. Demodex mites are microscopic skin pests that are present in small numbers in almost everyone. Demodex folliculorum and Demodex brevis are two species that live in the pores of the human skin. In large numbers, they may exacerbate or even cause hair loss by various mechanisms.
The Role of Demodex Mite in Hair Loss
Demodex folliculorum lives in the hair follicles and feeds on the nutrients that strands need to nourish and grow. In some conditions, such as a weakened immune system, these skin pests multiply to the point where more than 25 of them fit into a follicle. They eat the follicles’ nutrients and leave no more for hair to grow. Damaged hair strands are gradually weakened and fall out. Demodex, on the other hand, physically destroys the follicle and causes hair loss.
The way that Demodex Brevis – which lives in the sebaceous glands below the follicles – affects hair loss is very similar to that of Demodex folliculorum. Both of these parasites weaken hair by consuming nutrients needed by the hair – including skin sebum.
On the other hand, inflammatory substances are derived from the Demodex body, may cause inflammation directly and indirectly by stimulating the immune system. They establish harmful processes that lead to alopecia.
The greater the number of these parasites, the more outstanding skin and hair damage will be. Demodex mites Removal can significantly help to strengthen hair and regrowth the strands.
