Question: I have hair fall problem I was lost totally with my hairs in last 5/6 years, So what should I do please help me.
Answer: Hi, Mairaj. It is hard to diagnose your condition remotely from your description but the duration suggests one of two main culprits may be behind your hair loss.
If your hair has been thinning specifically from the top of your head, often one of the most noticeable signs of this is that your parting becomes wider and your scalp becomes more visible particularly around the temples, this is likely to be Female Pattern Hair Loss. This is a common genetic condition which is both permanent and progressive so will gradually worsen over time if left untreated.
It may appear that you have generally thinning hair at first glance but upon investigation you will find that, where hereditary hairloss is to blame, it is actually the hair around the top of the scalp which is affected and, as such, gives the impressive of overall thinness.
There are clinically-proven ways to treat this although, given the length of time you have been losing your hair, your suitability will depend on the health of your follicles so a professional assessment, either in person or online, is advisable.
Many Belgravia clients have experienced compelling regrowth results after following personalised female hair loss treatment courses, tailored to their needs and a specialist will be able to provide you with bespoke recommendations during your consultation. These courses will generally feature minoxidil as the cornerstone of the plan, with the potential for beneficial added boosters and laser devices such as the LaserComb to be added in as required.
Alternatively, if you have experienced total hair loss, or baldness, which has lasted for the past five or six years then the reason is likely to be one of the more severe forms of the autoimmune condition Alopecia Areata.
This is the second most common cause of hair loss in the world and the more extreme versions, Alopecia Totalis and Alopecia Universalis cause baldness of the head or whole body respectively.The cause remains a mystery to scientists but key triggers include trauma and sudden shock.
At present there are no truly effective treatments for Alopecia Totalis or Universalis although there have been a number of recent breakthroughs in research in this area. You can find out more about the numerous clinical trials investigating potential treatments in the Alopecia section of our blog, which is constantly updated so do check back for the latest news.
