Hair loss explained by Trichologist Trevenen Glen Bam


There are many causes of scalp hair loss, and they do differ in men and women. Studies show that losing up to 100-150 hairs per day is normal. Human hair naturally grows in three phases: anagen, catagen, and telogen. Anagen is the active or growing phase. In general, most hair loss is not associated with systemic or internal disease, nor is poor diet a frequent factor. Frequently, hair may simply thin as a result of predetermined genetic factors, family history, and the overall aging process. Many men and women may notice a mild and  often normal physiologic thinning of hair starting in their thirties and forties. Other times,  normal life variations including temporary severe stress, nutritional changes, and hormonal  changes like those in pregnancy, puberty, and menopause may cause reversible hair loss.
