Hair Growth Cycle And Hair Loss

We all lose our hair every day, and a new one replaces our lost hair. This is extremely normal, and this is called the hair growth cycle. But sometimes our hair starts to fall out too much, so we normally consider decaying between 80-120 strands of hair in a day.

When a baby is born, there are 150 thousand hair follicles in the skull, and when an adult, this figure is about 120 thousand. If the daily hair loss is 750 or above, this is not normal, it means that there is something that disrupts the person’s hair growth cycle.

Usually, it is also necessary to look back three months from the date when hair loss began. During this period (three months ago), a febrile illness, a great stress, an event such as an accident disrupts the hair growth cycle and disrupts it. Now the number of times our hair falls out in a day is too much. As I mentioned earlier, the hair loss is over 750 and it is an annoying, abnormal condition. This is called telogen eflivium, which becomes a disruption of the hair cycle and too much hair loss.

In some cases, the condition may recover in a short time (for example, 6 months), while sometimes it may become chronic. There may be other reasons for this besides the reasons I mentioned. Anemia, hormonal changes, or hormonal decencies can be considered among these causes.

In the presence of these reasons, the process may be prolonged and the solution may become difficult at the end of this process, although there is no hair loss gene in the person’s genetic heritage, there may be a large decrease in the amount of hair compared to its former normal state, and in my experience, this is a condition that makes a person very unhappy.

So, what should we do?

During this period, professional help should definitely be sought and, of course, blood tests

it should be done and the missing values should be supported by the Turkish doctor’s recommendation. Trichological applications will also provide solutions to this type of hair problems.
