What is hair loss?

Hair loss is when there is excessive loss of hair in your scalp or body and new hair growth does happen – this can either be just temporary or a permanent problem. Hair loss can happen to just about anyone as the result of your family’s history, hormonal changes, any medical conditions (or underlying medical conditions) or simply as you age.

On average, you will lose anywhere between 50 to 100 hairs per day. New hair growth typically happens at the same time, so this hair loss is usually unnoticeable.

Hair loss commonly happens to men but it is not abnormal for women to experience hair loss as well.

Some factors that increase the risk of hair loss include:

  • A family history of hair loss
  • Age
  • Rapid weight loss
  • Certain medical conditions
  • Stress
  • Poor dietary nutrition

If you are starting to notice bald spots, you may be experiencing hair loss.

What causes hair loss?

There are several factors that cause hair loss, such as:

  • Family history - Male-pattern hair loss/baldness or female-pattern hair loss/baldness (also known as androgenic alopecia) is a condition that can happen with age, occurring slowly and in predictable patterns.
  • Hormonal changes - Due to pregnancy, childbirth, menopause and problems with your thyroid.
  • Medical conditions - Such as alopecia areata (an immune system-related condition), scalp infections, or trichotillomania (a hair-pulling disorder).
  • Medication and supplements - Certain medications meant for high blood pressure, cancer, depression or gout can cause hair loss as a side effect.
  • Radiation therapy - It is not unusual for hair to drop from radiation therapy; unfortunately hair once lost may not grow back the same way it used to.
  • Stress - Physical or emotional stress could cause temporary hair loss for a period of time.
  • Excessive hairstyling - Certain hairstyles can cause hair loss known as traction alopecia.
  • Topical treatments - Certain topical treatments can also unknowingly cause hair loss if the ingredients do not suit your scalp. Hot-oil hair treatments could cause scarring, resulting in permanent hair loss.

What are the symptoms of hair loss?

  • Circular or patchy bald spots on your head
  • Full-body hair loss
  • Gradual thinning on the top of your head
  • Sudden loosening of your hair
  • Patches of scaling that spread over your scalp

Stages of hair loss

Stage 1 - In this stage, known as the “control” stage, you’ll still have a full head of hair with minor to no signs of hair thinning, hair loss or receding hairline.

Stage 2 - This stage is referred to as the “adult or mature” hairline phase and shows visible but minor signs of a receding hairline (noticeable around the temples).

Stage 3 - At this stage, called the “widow’s peak”, you can start to see visible hair loss as the hairline becomes recessed at the temples.

Stage 4 - You will start to notice your hairline resembling a “U” shape with a bald spot on the top of your head in this stage, however, there will still be some hair growth.

Stage 5 - Progressing from the previous stage, further hair loss will make your hairline recede more and any hair between the bald spot and hairline will continue to grow thinner.

Stage 6 - There will be a significant progression of balding on the front and crown of your head with some hair growth on the sides and back.

Stage 7 - This is when baldness would have started to advance to the sides of your head, leaving only a thin ring of hair around the outside of your head. Hair growth is still possible in other areas, but it may be sparse, thin and weak.

How is hair loss diagnosed?

After discussing your concerns with your doctor, they may ask about your diet, hair care routine, medical history and family history in order.

Afterwhich, your doctor will likely give you a physical examination and test you in one or more of the following, if necessary:

  • Blood test - To uncover any underlying medical conditions
  • Pull test - Your doctor will gently pull several dozen hairs to see how many (or if any) come out.
  • Scalp biopsy - Samples of your skin by lightly scraping your scalp or a few hairs will be plucked from the scalp to be examined under a microscope.
  • Light microscopy - A special instrument is used to examine your hairs that are trimmed at their bases. This will help uncover any possible disorders of the hair shaft.

After your doctor has done the necessary tests to identify the problem, they will then be able to give you a diagnosis of whether you are experiencing temporary or permanent hair loss.

Frequently Asked Questions
01. How do I know if I’m losing too much hair?
It’s normal to lose 50 to 100 hairs a day. However, when you are losing more hair than new hair growth, you might be experiencing hair loss. This could be temporary but if it persists without treatment, it can become a permanent problem.
02. What is the main cause of hair loss?
The most common cause of hair loss is a hereditary condition that happens when you age known as androgenic alopecia (male-pattern baldness and female-pattern baldness). Hormonal changes, medical conditions, consuming medication or supplements, radiation therapy, stress, excessive hairstyling or topical treatments could also cause hair loss.
03. What age is hair loss most common?
There is no particular age when you should expect to start noticing hair loss. It takes most men anywhere between 15 to 25 years to go completely bald once they start experiencing hair loss. By 60 years old, two third of men are either completely bald or have a noticeable balding pattern. For women, noticeable hair loss typically starts at the age of 40.
04. When does hair loss stop?
Similarly to when hair loss is most common, there is no specific age when hair loss stops. It can start from as early as 18 years old and continue until 50 to 80 years old.
05. When should I worry about hair loss?
Excessive hair loss can be worrying for anyone. If you are losing more hair than usual every day, you should see your doctor to address your concerns. Typically, a gradual thinning on the top of your head, the appearance of patchy or bald spots on your scalp or full-body hair loss could be a cause for concern as this might mean you could have an underlying health condition.
