Momi Takes Career Break Due to Hair Loss

Momi Moammar Rana Hair Loss The Belgravia CentreAs a star of the Pakistani movie industry Moammar Rana, known affectionately as Momi, is well aware of the importance of good looks when appearing on the big screen. However the pressure of constantly being in the spotlight appears to have taken its toll as Momi has announced he is to take a hiatus from filming.

According to reports published in the local Roznama Express newspaper, Momi is currently experiencing patchy hair loss. More significantly Rana is said to be losing his facial hair too, suggesting that the condition may be something other than a straightforward case of male pattern baldness – the most common cause of hair loss in men.

Undergoing hair loss treatment?

The report goes on to suggest that Momi is taking a break to undergo treatment for his hair loss condition. Under doctor’s orders, Momi has been told that any break in his treatment, such as would be required to film a new movie on location, could affect his hair regrowth.

Momi himself has refused to comment on the rumours, maintaining strict privacy as he takes his career break.

What could be the cause?

The fact that Momi is losing hair from his beard suggests that the hair loss comes from one of the more rare conditions such as Telogen Effluvium or Alopecia Areata. However the doctor’s instructions point towards Alopecia Areata as Telogen Effluvium-related hair loss tends to resolve itself over time.

Alopecia Areata is thought to be a systemic autoimmune condition which sees the body’s own defence against illness attack the hair follicles. This then causes hair growth to stop, leading to the development of bald patches on the head and potentially the beard too, if the condition has progressed to Alopecia Totalis in which all hair on the head and face is affected.

Alopecia: a rare hair loss condition

Hair loss experts estimate that Alopecia Areata affects just 0.1% – 0.2% of humans across the world. Men and women alike are affected by Alopecia Areata with varying degrees of severity. Other high profile people who have experienced hair loss due to Alopecia Areata include Gail Porter, Joanna Rowsell and Jimi Mistry.

In some cases the hair loss will resolve itself over time, but where the patches continue to spread, expert advice and a custom treatment plan will be required. By seeking medical advice and following his doctor’s instructions, Momi has taken the first steps to resolving any hair loss condition he may have. Momi’s fans will be hoping that his treatment is a complete success, and that he makes a return to the screen soon.
