Clinical hair loss is usually diagnosed when areas of hair begin to thin out on the head and you find that you can cause significant hair loss with the “hair pulling test” – pulling a group of hairs with three fingers and you find more than 4-5 hairs between your fingers. Another sign is if there are more than eight hairs on a pillow when you wake up in the morning after sleeping.
For both women and men, the most common causes of hair loss are aging, hormonal changes, stress and genetic factors. Some less common causes are chemotherapy; iron deficiency; post-surgery – primarily due to the after-effects of antibiotics and confinement; sudden and excess weight loss; diseases accompanied by high fever, or alternatively infectious diseases; thyroid gland hypo- or over-activity; and protein deficiency (especially in vegetarians). Medicines, such as blood thinners, anti-inflammation, antidepressants, blood pressure controls, anti-cholesterol or vitamin boosters can also cause hair loss.
In women in particular, some additional causes include birth control pills even after you have stopped taking them and post-childbirth stress, including new baby care.
In men, male pattern baldness is the most common form of hair loss. By the age of forty, 40% of men have hair loss and visible baldness. This can even begin in their twenties.
There are two main types of male pattern baldness. In one, the hair thins out on the crown. This is usually the result of the hereditary genotype. There is also the condition known as androgenetic alopecia (AGA) where the hair begins to thin and fall out in a characteristic pattern in the area of the temples and forehead, creating a receding hairline. The hair is then replaced by soft fluffy hair which after some time will be lost completely and leave a bald patch that grows slowly. It is estimated that over 70% of men suffer from some form of male pattern baldness before the age of fifty.
