| Approximately 80% of the population, both
men and women suffer from hair loss to some degree or other.
There are varying degrees of loss but in all cases it is emotional
upsetting. Because it is not considered life threatening most
General Practitioners do not treat it seriously. Hair loss can
be caused by genetic and non- genetic factors.
The secret is to treat the problem in its early stages. The
earlier the better. This will encourage the hair follicles
to produce a better quality hair. Genetic hair loss can be
treated. Stabilising treatments can achieve this, as can keeping
the scalp in optimum condition.
Hair loss from non-genetic factors can be caused by a multitude
of reasons. To name a few, poor diet, poor health, hormonal
problems, some antibiotics, injury (particularly to spine
or neck) sudden shock, after child birth, septic foci, stress,
use of poor quality hair products and over processing of perms,
colours, bleaches etc. Depending on the reason the hair loss
can be long or short term. In most cases non-genetic hair
loss can be rectified once the underlying reason has been
established and treated. In all cases of hair loss scalp condition
can actually improve or make the condition worse, so it is
extremely important that the scalp is kept in optimum condition
at all times.
