Hair Loss: A Problem of Modern Society

Hair LossHair loss is a universal problem of our times and, unfortunately, a great number of people regardless of their gender, age, race, occupation or wealth, have to face it. We try to do everything possible and take care about the way we look. Our skin, white teeth and beautiful shiny smile, as well as smooth and silky hair can attract more attention of the people around than a gorgeous dress or costly jewels. But hair loss can reduce all our efforts to nothing, that is why the issues of effective hair loss treatment is a point of true interest of many modern men and women.

Hair loss can be excessive or partial, as well as temporary (Alopecia Areata or Telogen Effluvium) and progressive (Male Pattern Baldness). Medical specialists discovered that usually men lose their hair five times faster than women. Every third man at the age of 30 starts losing hair, just like every second man at the age of 50 does. Male patterns of losing hair include weakening and thinning of hair strands, followed by total loss of hair follicles and baldness.

More than 50% of women also suffer from hair loss. If hair loss in males is mostly connected with genetic factors, and in the majority of the cases male baldness is local, female hair loss is linked to hormonal, seasonal and emotional factors. In particular, after pregnancy every woman experiences a great loss of estrogen in her organism, that affects her hair to a great extent. That is why many women experience considerable hair loss within 3-6 months after giving birth (Post Patum hair loss), and sometimes this crisis turns out to be a real medical problem.

•    Stresses, worries and emotional problems
•    Infectious diseases
•    Hormonal imbalances
•    Hereditary factors
•    Poor diet
•    Ageing
•    Problematic environment
