Short, long, straight or curly – your hair’s fullness is an expression of your unique style and personality. But if you start losing your hair it can affect your confidence and self-esteem.
Over 56 million men and women in the United States suffer from thinning or baldness, but over 60% of medical hair loss and thinning hair can be managed, controlled or reversed without the need for surgical options. Hair re-growth in men has almost a 65% success rate without surgery.
The hair that you see is actually a string of dead keratin cells. At any one time, about 90% of the hair on a person’s scalp is growing. As a person ages the hair growth slows down. There are several types of hair loss- some of the main ones include:
Involutional alopecia is a condition where the hair gradually thins with aging. More follicles go into the resting phase and the remaining hairs become shorter and fewer.
There is androgenic alopecia or male pattern baldness which is a genetic condition. It can occur in both men and women and can start as early as ones teens.
Alopecia areata is patchy hair loss in children and young adults. This often reverses itself.
There are many other reasons for losing your hair, including medications, stress, hormone deficiency, and your environment exposures. You can also be too aggressive with your hair by wearing tight ponytails, brushing your hair too much, or rubbing your head habitually to the point of follicle damage.
We, at BioFunctional Med, have several hair restoration solutions to encourage the health and growth of your hair, for both men and women. We have several supplements, growth factors, topical solutions, light therapy devices and PRP procedures that can help.
