Hair Loss

Hair loss, also known as alopecia, can affect any part of your body, and not just your head. It can be temporary or permanent, depending on the reasons behind the condition. Heredity, hormonal changes (like in pregnancy), medication, medical conditions, psychological conditions like trauma or aging are the most common causes of hair loss. It is a condition that affects both women and men, but the latter is more affected. Treatment options for hair loss include medicines like minoxidil, finasteride, and dutasteride, hair transplant surgery, laser therapy, lifestyle and home remedies. Before coming to a conclusion, the dermatologist/trichologist will ask one to undergo examinations (blood test, pull test, scalp biopsy and light microscopy), and also ask about family history, diet, and hair care routine.
