“Please Help With Hair Loss in the Centre of My Head”

HairlossANSWERS - Click to Submit Your Query to Our Hair Loss Experts

Name: Pawlose

Question: i loss a lot of hair in my center head. age am 16 years pls help me what is the problem & the solution

Answer: Hi, Pawlose. There are two conditions that are the most likely causes of the hair loss you describe.

If the hair in the centre of your head has been gradually thinning, this is almost certainly a case of male pattern baldness. Shedding along the vertex or a thinning crown, is a common sign of this widespread hereditary condition which can start any time following puberty and only affects areas around the top of the head.

Although genetics are the reason for this type of hair loss, there are certain lifestyle factors, including stress, smoking and having a poor diet, which can make the thinning worse.

If the hair loss you are experiencing came on suddenly with the hair falling out in clumps, rather than shedding gradually, that leave behind one or a number of rounded bald patches, this is probably Alopecia Areata. This is an autoimmune disorder which affects the hair follicles and is the second most common cause of hair loss worldwide behind pattern baldness. This can present in men and women of any age, from childhood onwards.

As you are 16 years old there is one hair loss treatment which is available to you and has been clinically-proven to treat male hair loss but has also produced impressive results when used as a treatment for alopecia areata. This is a topical solution called minoxidil.

Belgravia uses a range of high strength minoxidil formulations to treat various hair loss conditions and this medication can also be combined with suitable hair growth boosters as appropriate. In order to receive professional, personalised recommendations for the best type of treatment course for your specific form of shedding, it is important to have a consultation with one of our hair loss specialist nurses, either in person or – if you live outside of London or the UK – online so that they can first provide you with a diagnosis of your condition.
