What is excessive hair loss?
All people, men and women, lose hair. It’s natural to do so. A normal person loses from 15 to 40 hairs everyday.
Hair goes through three growth cycles. The Anagen phase is when hair grows. This cycle lasts about three years. The second phase is called the Catagen phase. During this time, hair growth ceases and no pigment is produced for about 10 days. The Catagen phase is followed by the Tologen phase, when hair is shed. This cycle usually lasts for about three months.
In individuals with healthy follicles, about 90% of the hair on the scalp grows at one time. Because the vast majority of follicles are in the Anagen phase and only a small percentage of them are in the Tologen phase normal amount of hair fall out isn’t noticeable.
Why women lose hair
Women can lose hair for a variety of reasons. In pregnancy, changes in hormone levels can produce hair loss. Stress and anxiety can also cause hair follicles to cease production. In some cases, a vitamin deficiency can lead to hair loss. Certain medications can cause hair to fall out, too. But in all the aforementioned cases, the hair loss is only temporary for most people. Once the condition causing the hair loss ceases, either naturally or through intervention, the hair follicles will “wake up” and begin producing hair once again.
There are two conditions in which hair loss is irreversible. The first is from the condition known as alopecia universalis. Very few people are afflicted with alopecia universalis, but those who are facing the devastating effects of all hair production ceasing on their body–they actually produce no hair at all, from their scalps to their toes. The condition is believed to be caused by a virus and there is no “cure” for it.
