At BESANA Health and Wellness, we will work closely with you to determine the root cause of your hair loss, rather than just treating your symptoms. Using a holistic approach, our team will perform diagnostic tests and carefully evaluate your diet and other lifestyle factors to identify all the underlying factors contributing to your hair loss. The goal is to design a treatment regimen that addresses the total picture so you can enjoy long-term benefits. Depending on the cause of your hair loss, we will tailor your treatment to include a combination of modalities.
To help you get started, here’s a quick look at several possible causes of hair loss:
The most common form of hair loss is androgenic alopecia, which is also known as male-pattern or female-pattern baldness. This hereditary condition happens with aging. In men, it looks like a receding hairline and bald spots, and among women, it typically presents as thinning hair along the crown of the scalp. If you have a family history of hair loss with age, a likely culprit is genetics. While you can’t change your genetic makeup, you can still mitigate hair loss with the right care.
Hormones affect every aspect of our health, including our hair lines! Women, for example, may report hair loss with pregnancy or after childbirth or menopause.
Many medical treatments can cause hair loss, including radiation therapy and drugs for cancer, arthritis, depression, heart problems, gout and high blood pressure. Medical conditions that can cause hair loss include thyroid problems, alopecia areata, an immune system disorder that causes patchy hair loss, scalp infections such as ringworm and a hair-pulling disorder called trichotillomania.
Any physical or emotional shock can result in hair loss. Though temporary, this type of hair loss can cause hair to thin out several months after the stressful event.
Hairstyles and Hair Treatments
Pulling your hair tight can cause a type of hair loss called traction alopecia. Hot-oil hair treatments and permanents also can cause hair loss. If scarring occurs, hair loss could be permanent.
