Why Treat Hair Loss?
Why would I or anyone else ever want to treat the shedding of hair?
Losing hair or going gray is just a natural part of aging right?
But still, most people (myself included) dread losing our hair.
The reasons for feeling like this are quite easily explained.
Our hair is one of the most defining aspects of our appearance. A healthy head of hair makes us look and feel attractive, youthful, and desirable.
Our appearance directly affects our own self-image and most of us want to maintain a self-image that is youthful and gives us a healthy look.
Our appearance also affects how we interact with other people, both in how others respond to how we look, and how our appearance affects our own self-confidence. Having a full head of hair can improve the quality of our life, our success in business relationships, and our success in romance.
Don’t get me wrong… some people suit the no hair look (Vin Diesel anyone?). However, going completely bald is not for everyone.
Wanting to treat hair loss is not just a matter of vanity. A person’s desire to look better and have a more pleasing appearance is also a normal human attitude. Hair loss adds years to a person’s appearance. Hair loss represents to men what wrinkles do to women. And hair loss for women is even worse than wrinkles!
So, enough about why we should treat hair loss. Let’s learn about hair, how it grows and why we lose it.
How Does Hair Grow?
Before we dive into why hair loss occurs it is important to understand how your hair grows.
Hair growth occurs in three stages called the ‘growth cycle’. These stages are the Anagen, Catagen and Telogen stages. We will go into detail about these different stages below.
Each and every hair follicle on your head goes through this growth cycle at different times. Once the process is complete it begins all over again.
On average the hair on your head will grow half an inch per month and six inches per year!
On average the hair on your head will grow half an inch per month and six inches per year!
The Anagen stage of the hair growth cycle is incredibly important to those suffering from hair loss. This is the growth phase.
The Anagen phase is when your hair is actively growing. During this stage, the cells in your hair follicles are splitting rapidly to create new hair fibers (keratin).
This growth stage can last anywhere from three to seven years (the length is determined by your genetics). It is incredibly important that your hair follicles receive adequate blood flow and nutrients during this stage to create the best environment for hair growth.
Over 85% of the hair on your head is in the Anagen phase at any one time.
The Catagen phase happens at the end of the Anagen phase. It is a transitional stage of the hair growth cycle that lasts approximately ten days.
During this phase, the hair follicle renews itself. At any one time, 1% of your hairs will be in the Catagen stage.
Finally your hair enters the Telogen stage. This is the resting phase of the hair growth and can last anywhere from one to four months.
During the Telogen stage your hair will fall out and the follicle will remain dormant. This is a completely natural form of hair loss called ‘shedding’. The average human loses up to one hundred hairs per day due to shedding in the Telogen phase.
The average human loses up to one hundred hairs per day due to shedding in the Telogen phase.
So now you know the basics of how hair grows. It is important to understand the above phases of hair growth in order to understand some of the causes of hair loss below.
Understanding Why Hair Loss Occurs
Hair loss can strike at any age, any time and for a multitude of reasons. In this section of the guide, we will look at the common causes of hair loss and why they cause you to lose hair.
What is Alopecia?
Alopecia is a fancy term that means hair loss. However, it is commonly used to describe Alopecia Areata – a certain type of Alopecia.
There are many forms of Alopecia (Alopecia Areata, Alopecia Universalis, Androgenetic Alopecia and Anagen Effluvium). We will briefly describe the different types of Alopecia below:
Alopecia Areata this is where the bodies immune system targets and attacks hair follicles. It can occur in patches or in rare cases can result in the loss of hair all over the body (Alopecia Universalis). In most cases hair will regrow over a few months, however, it is often a different thickness or color.
Androgenetic Alopecia this is another name for pattern hair loss. We will go into more detail about this type of hair loss below in its own section.
Anagen Effluvium this is hair loss caused by toxic chemicals that the body is subjected to (usually chemotherapy). Hair loss is temporary and grows back a few months after treatment ceases. Again we will discuss this form of Alopecia below in its own section.
As mentioned above Alopecia Areata (sometimes also called Autoimmune Alopecia) is an autoimmune disorder whereby the bodies own immune system attacks its own hair follicles.
It is yet unknown why the immune system targets and attacks the hair cells. The hair loss usually occurs in cycles, with certain triggers (such as hormones, stress or trauma) initiating an occurrence.
With this form of Alopecia, hair loss often occurs in one or more round bald patches that appear suddenly on the scalp. Hair is lost very quickly and in large chunks.
In rare cases, Alopecia Areata can progress to complete loss of all hair on the head (Alopecia Totalis) or loss of all body hair (Alopecia Universalis).
Alopecia Areata affects both males and females. There are over 147 million people worldwide who suffer from the disease.
The condition is not a disabling condition. In fact, the majority of people who suffer from it are 100% healthy. However emotionally it can be draining, especially for those who have a more advanced form of the condition.
It is important to remember that with Alopecia Areata that all hair follicles remain alive and healthy. This means that they are able to grow back at any time with or without treatment.
There is currently no FDA-approved treatment for Alopecia Areata. However, many medical professionals encourage trying off the label treatments to try and improve the condition. It is always important for you to contact your doctor to have the condition diagnosed and to discuss any treatments before trying them.
Common treatments for Alopecia Areata include:
- Minoxidil Topical Solution (Discussed in more detail in the treatments section).
- Intralesional corticosteroid injections – Injections administered by a dermatologist to speed hair regrowth.
- Oral Corticosteroids – Like the injections but a lot stronger. Usually used for more severe hair loss.
- Topical Immunotherapy.
- Wigs and Hair Pieces (Discussed in more detail in the treatments section).
There are many support networks available for people who suffer from Alopecia Areata. These websites are filled to the brim with information about the condition and people’s experiences with treatments and living with the condition. We would highly recommend reading through the below websites if you are suffering from this condition.
- National Alopecia Areata Foundation
- 5 Things People With Alopecia Want You To Know
- WebMD – Alopecia Areata
- Wigs for Alopecia Sufferers
Pattern Hair Loss (Androgenetic Alopecia)
The number one cause of hair loss in men is pattern hair loss (also called male pattern baldness). However, it is a condition that affects both men and women.
Pattern hair loss is a genetic disorder which is inherited from your parents (thanks, mom, and dad).
Thinning and receding hair from pattern hair loss is due to hair follicles in the scalp becoming sensitive to hormonal changes (a particular hormone called dihydrotestosterone, or DHT). These sensitivities cause hair follicles to shrink and eventually shut down.
DHT sensitivity causes the hairs Anagen growth phase to be cut short. This means that hair follicles do not receive enough nutrients and blood flow and hair that is produced becomes thinner and thinner and eventually falls out (and does not grow back!).
You read that correctly. Once a hair follicle shuts down it CANNOT regrow hair.
It is therefore incredibly important to begin treatment for pattern hair loss as early as possible once it starts.
Triggering of these hormonal changes can happen at any age. But becomes more common the older you get.
In most cases, pattern hair loss starts slowly. So slow in fact that it is barely noticeable until quite a substantial amount of hair has already been lost.
While men typically suffer pattern hair loss with receding hairlines and bald spots on the crown of the head, women typically experience thinning hair over the entire top of the head.
At least 80% of males will experience some degree of hair loss during their lifetime, while for woman the number is a much lower 40% (generally after menopause).”
One of the first signs of hair loss is noticing that your hair is beginning to thin. This is a noticeable drop in the thickness of your hair.
If you are experiencing thinning hair it is important to monitor the rate and amount of hair that is being shed.
The best ways to do this are to look at your pillow when you wake up in the morning, or at the plug of your shower after you have bathed.
How much hair is there? How many strands? Is the rate at which you are losing hair increasing? How fast?
Monitoring the shedding of hair not only helps you measure the rate at which your hair loss is occurring, but it also helps to gauge the affect of any hair loss treatment you are going to attempt.
As mentioned in the Hair Growth Cycle above, shedding some hair (up to one hundred strands per day) is normal. However much more than this could be a sign of the onset of pattern hair loss.
Common treatments for pattern hair loss include:
- Minoxidil or Rogaine (Discussed in more detail in the treatments section below)
- Hair Loss Shampoos with Ketoconazole and Zinc Pyrithione
- Cosmetic Treatments
- Argan Oil
- Hair Transplant Surgery
The effectiveness of the above treatments is based on the severity of your hair loss. See the below section on hair loss severity for more information.
Anagen Effluvium – Chemical Toxicity (Chemotherapy)
Anagen Effluvium is a form of Alopecia that is caused most commonly by drugs, toxicity or radiation. It involves hair loss during the Anagen phase of hair growth.
Hair loss is usually rapid and includes loss of hair from all over the body (including eyebrows, eyelashes and body hair).
The most common cause of Anagen Effluvium is chemotherapy. Hair loss occurs seven to fourteen days after a single pulse of chemotherapy.
Losing hair from drugs or radiotherapy is NOT permanent. Your hair will regrow within four to six months after treatment stops. However, the effects of full body hair loss can be very emotional.
The most common treatment for cancer patients and those suffering from Anagen Effluvium are temporary and cosmetic (wigs and hair pieces). These cosmetic tools are so sophisticated that it is almost impossible to tell you are wearing one, and they come in a multitude of styles.
If you are undergoing or are about to undergo chemotherapy or radiotherapy treatment we would recommend you look at the resources below:
- American Hair Loss Association – Anagen Effluvium
- Godiva’s Secret – Synthetic Wigs
- Model Lace Wigs and Hair – Real Human Hair Wigs
Other common causes for Hair Loss
- Autoimmune disorders – This occurs when the body attacks its own hair follicles;
- Nutritional deficiencies – Not getting the right building blocks to grow hair from ones diet;
- Prescription drugs – Some drugs used to treat other ailments can be damaging to hair;
- Physical Trauma;
- Hair Styling techniques and products;
- Psychological issues.
The above list is by no means exhaustive. However, to find the best hair loss treatment for you, you must first identify the cause.
Understanding why YOU are losing hair
It is incredibly important for you to understand the cause behind why YOU as an individual are losing hair. There is no point in copying a solution that has worked for someone else if the causes they are treating are different to yours.
Take diet as an example. If the cause of your hair loss is a vitamin deficiency and you start rubbing a hair loss medication on your head, how well do you think this will work for you?
There are many things that can lead to you losing your hair. Hair loss is the symptom, not the cause. It is important to find the underlying cause of the issue in order to treat it.
Hair loss is the symptom, not the cause. It is important to find the underlying cause of the issue in order to treat it.”
Some hair loss is much easier to stop and even reverse, while other types are not.
In the case of pattern hair loss once a hair follicle is completely shut down it is impossible to get it to regrow hair. The only hair loss treatment would be a cosmetic treatment or surgery. However, with Alopecia Areata, bald patches are very likely to grow back given the right treatment and time.
Below you will find out the sorts of questions you should be asking yourself to help diagnose reasons for your hair loss. We recommend you use the below information as a guide to give you an idea why you may be losing hair. It is always good to get this confirmed by a medical professional before beginning treatment.
Ways to Identify Why you are Losing Hair
The reason a person loses hair is very individual and varies immensely from one person to another. Unfortunately, we cannot answer this question for you. However, what we can do is guide you as to the types of things you should be looking at and the questions you should be asking.
Questions to ask yourself:
Is my hair falling out gradually or in clumps?
Has my diet changed?
Am I under a lot of stress?
Has anything changed recently that could be causing this?
For woman.. have you recently had a child? Are you breastfeeding?
What hair products am I using? Have these changed?
If you and your doctor are completely unsure as to why you are losing hair, the answer might be to approach your hair loss treatment using trial and error. Similar to the ways doctors identify food allergies. You will need to alter certain variables in your life and see if your hair loss decreases or gets better. This could be trialing a product, adding or removing an item from your diet or even meditating to relieve stress.
Pattern Hair Loss
By far the biggest cause of hair loss in men is male pattern baldness as mentioned above. 95% of males will experience pattern hair loss in their lives.
If you believe you are suffering from pattern hair loss then its time to do a bit of genealogy. Look at your parents and grandparents. Are they bald? Are they using a hair loss treatment or have used one in the past?
Remember, just because your parents do not show signs of hair loss does not mean they are not, or have not experienced it. Hair loss is an incredibly personal problem, and broadcasting that you wear a hair piece or have had surgery is not the norm.
It is also important to monitor how you are losing hair. Is it shedding? Thinning? Receding? In what pattern? How rapidly?
Pattern hair loss occurs gradually. In men, it usually starts at the crown of the head or the fringe and ‘creeps’ back. For a woman it is usually just a general thinning all over the head.
The severity of your hair loss (what stage it is at) is also important which we will discuss in the next section.
If you believe your hair loss to be genetic, then treatment options are relatively straightforward, combating the hormonal changes that cause the hair loss is the key.
Measuring the Severity of your Hair Loss
Once the underlying cause of your hair loss is determined, it is equally important to measure the severity of your hair loss before deciding which treatment option to use.
Measuring the severity of pattern hair loss:
Males – Using the Norwood Scale
For males suffering from pattern hair loss the scale to measure the severity and type of hair loss is the Norwood Scale:
This was a scale developed in the 1970’s by Dr. O’tar Norwood and is still used today.
The scale has the most common patterns of male hair loss and stages to measure progression of the loss.
Depending on how far along the Norwood scale you are, the fewer treatment options you have available to you.
At levels 5 and higher, the use of medications such as minoxidil or finasteride is almost useless to regrow lost hair. The best hair loss treatment at this stage is to have a hair transplant, wear a hair piece or undergo an MHT treatment.
Click here to read more about the Norwood scale and the treatment options at each stage.
Females – Using the Ludwig / Savin Scale
For females suffering from pattern hair loss the scale to measure the severity and type of hair loss is the Ludwig / Savin Scale:
The scale was developed in the mid-nineties by Doctor Savin. The scale is used in the exact same manner as the Norwood scale above, but focuses on the female pattern of hair loss.
Again, the earlier in the scale your hair loss is the more treatments available and the higher success rate of the treatment.
Measuring the Severity of Alopecia Areata
For Alopecia Areata you need to decide whether you are comfortable with the hair loss you are experiencing. For some people this condition is relatively minor and unnoticeable, however, for others, it can be an incredibly difficult and defeating condition.
There are many treatments to help regrow hair or cosmetic treatments to help cover up any hair loss that has occurred below.
Best Hair Loss Treatments Available
The following are PROVEN hair loss treatment methods that work for many people. The treatments in most cases will stop or slow down hair loss and will stimulate hair to grow.
Nutrients your body needs for optimal hair growth
Essential Fatty Acids
In order to optimize hair growth, you need to be consuming the correct amount of essential fatty acids.
But, what are essential fatty acids?
Omega 3 you can get from fish oil, flax seed oil, walnuts, chia seeds etc. You should be consuming at least 1200 to 1800mg of Omega 3 fish oil per day MINIMUM.
Not only does this help hair growth but it has been proven to help your joints, digestive system, and brain function.
Omega 6 you can get from walnuts, pecan seeds, sunflower seeds, virgin sesame oil and virgin sunflower oil. You should be consuming at least 1-2 handfuls of nuts or 1 – 2 teaspoons of oil daily.
If you believe you are not getting enough of these oils from your diet then you should consider taking them in a supplement form. These can be purchased relatively cheaply from a supermarket, pharmacy or online such as here.
The above fatty acids have been proven to help to regulate DHT – the hormone that shuts down hair follicles in pattern hair loss.
A deficiency in essential fatty acids will result in dry hair and poor hair growth.
Silica is one of the least known minerals is one of the healthiest for your hair – and your bones, joints, nails, and skin.
In a research trial at the University of Cincinnati, it was found that silica, in the form of choline- stabilized orthosilicic acid was able to both strengthen and thicken hair by more than 12%.
Silica helps the body form more collagen and increase blood flow to the scalp. Increased blood flow means your hair follicles are able to receive more nutrients to the hair root when needed.
Again this is another supplement that is very cheap to buy over the counter or online.
Biotin is a B group vitamin. Commonly referred to as vitamin H.
It is a common ingredient in many shampoos, ointments, and pills that are available to treat hair loss.
Biotin helps the body to increase keratin infrastructure and strengthen both hair and nails. It is incredibly important to be receiving enough biotin in your diet.
A biotin deficiency can cause brittle and weak nails as well as damaged hair and even hair loss itself.
To read more about biotin and how to take it see this article.
It is important you are receiving enough protein from your diet. If you are vegan or vegetarian, there is a higher chance that you may not be eating enough protein. Hair is composed primarily of protein in the form of keratin. Your body needs all the building blocks required to grow hair.
Try experimenting with your diet and adding a bit more protein.
Iron is another good supplement that supports the growth of hair. Steak is high in both protein an iron (but do not overdo it).
Drug Hair Loss Treatments
The medication comes in a colorless odorless solution that is rubbed into the scalp. You can buy it in the form of a dropper, shampoo or foam.
Minoxidil is the single most powerful over the counter hair loss treatment available.
Researchers do not understand how minoxidil works to improve hair growth. It is a vasodilator, meaning it helps blood vessels enlarge. Other vasodilators, however, do not stop hair loss or increase hair growth.
Minoxidil lotion works only on active hair follicles still capable of producing some hair, even if the hair produced is just “peach fuzz.”
Minoxidil is a must try lotion for those suffering from thinning hair or pattern hair loss.
Due to increased competition and availability, it is an incredibly cheap product to try.
The lotions and foams can be bought over the counter at your local pharmacy or online such as here.
Combined with other treatment methods, it can form part of an incredibly effective solution.
The key to using minoxidil is to be consistent. As it needs to be applied twice daily it needs to be made a part of your daily routine.
Finasteride is more commonly known as Propecia. This drug is the single most effective medication proven to treat genetic pattern hair loss.
Finasteride is a prescription drug and is taken in pill form. The drug works by lowering DHT levels (the hormone that causes the shutdown of hair follicles), thereby preventing the shrinkage and eventual shutdown of hair follicles that leads to baldness. Propecia is the first FDA-approved treatment for male pattern baldness.
Originally used for the treatment of men with an enlarged prostate, it was quickly noted that a side effect was the regrowth of hair.
Finasteride is only prescribed to men due to the hormonal changes that occur while taking the drug.
The effectiveness of hair growth is only active while taking the drug. This means that if you stop all of a sudden, expect hair loss to recur at a rapid rate.
There are many side effects of taking Finasteride. They affect everyone in different ways. It is vital to speak to your doctor before starting treatment with Finasteride.
Common side effects include:
- impotence, loss of interest in sex, or trouble having an orgasm;
- abnormal ejaculation;
- swelling in your hands or feet;
- swelling or tenderness in your breasts;
- dizziness, weakness;
- feeling like you might pass out;
- runny nose; or
- skin rash.
The sexual side effects of Finasteride including a loss of libido and erectile dysfunction can be permanent.
The sexual side effects of Finasteride including a loss of libido and erectile dysfunction can be permanent.“
Many males use a combination of Minoxidil and Finasteride in their hair loss treatments with amazing results.
Hair Loss Shampoos
A necessary treatment for those using Minoxidil or are suffering from pattern hair loss is a hair loss shampoo.
The shampoos are designed to remove dandruff, block DHT aromatisation (the hormone which causes pattern hair loss), moisturize the scalp, treat bacterial and fungal infections and stimulate the hair follicles to grow more hair.
Using a hair loss shampoo is critical for any hair loss treatment. The hair loss shampoos we have reviewed here have been proven to increase the effects of drugs such as Minoxidil and Finasteride. They do this by maintaining a healthy scalp environment that not only promotes hair growth, but also increases the penetration of other hair treatment drugs.
The ingredients used in these shampoos are specifically designed to improve the health of your hair and scalp.
If you are going to wash your hair anyway (we seriously hope you do) you should be doing it with a shampoo product designed to stimulate hair growth and protect your scalp.
While some can be little pricey, there are thousands of people that swear by these shampoos. Simply look at the Amazon reviews of one of the best shampoos for hair loss here.
For more mild cases of hair loss, or at the beginning stages of pattern hair loss, the combination of the correct nutrients and a shampoo can be enough to slow down hair shedding.

Natural Hair Loss Treatments
Saw Palmetto is known by many in the hair loss community as the natural finasteride.
While there has not been any scientific evidence or research trials regarding its effectiveness in humans, there have been some very positive results with clinical trials on other mammals.
Saw Palmetto extract acts by 5-alpha-reductase – the enzyme responsible for converting testosterone to DHT.
It has also been proven to help men with enlarged prostates (the same effect as finasteride).
Other Treatment Methods
Hair Pieces and Wigs
If you have incredibly severe hair loss, have bald patches or are completely bald, then a viable option for you is to use a hair piece or wig.
These days the technology and options available to you in the form of hair pieces, mean that it is literally impossible for someone to tell you are wearing one.
Whether you are wanting to add thickness and coverage to certain individual areas or a hair piece that covers your entire head there are a multitude of options available to you.
There are two types of hair pieces. Synthetic and real hair.
By far the cheapest option are the synthetic hair pieces, these are easy to care for as they do not need to be styled and last anywhere from 6 to 12 months.
The next option is real human hair. These wigs and hair pieces are incredibly popular (but come with a hefty price tag). These hair pieces are very realistic and last years – they can also be styled in any way you would normal hair.
If you are undergoing chemotherapy or have severe alopecia a hair piece is one of the best solutions. Click here for a guide on the best wigs for alopecia sufferers.
Cosmetic Hair Loss Treatment
Another viable option (especially if you have thinning hair or a bald patch) is to use a concealer product. Concealers use powdered keratin protein that is statically charged to essentially thicken hair and cover up patches where hair has thinned out.
While they do not treat the cause of the hair loss or stop it. As a cosmetic improvement they work very well.
You can use any styling product with the concealer in without worrying that it will run or come off. Most concealers like Toppik are wind, rain and sweat resistant.
Surgical Hair Transplant
If all else fails, or your hair loss is particularly severe there is always the option of surgery.
Surgical forms of hair restoration have had a long history of popularity, mainly because the results are permanent.
Once the surgery has been completed and everything has healed, there is no worrying about having a hairpiece discovered, or applying lotions, or taking pills.
However, these procedures are usually quite expensive, do not come without complications, and should really only be used after exhausted all the methods referred to above.
All surgical hair restoration techniques, from old-style “plugs” to state-of-the-art follicular unit micro grafting, involve the same medical and artistic principles.
The different techniques employ these principles with the goal of achieving the same result: a natural-appearing fuller head of hair.
If you decide to go down this route of treatment it is best to research the multiple options available to you, understand the risks and what the surgery will entail.
As hair loss is such a common issue in this day and age, there are specialized hair clinics all over the country.

Continued Treatment and Hair Care
Once you find a hair loss treatment that works for you it is important to keep a consistent hair care routine in place.
If your method involves the use of drugs like Minoxidil and Finasteride it is important to continue to use these. While it may seem like you have stopped losing hair and no longer need them, if you suddenly stop using them hair loss could accelerate dramatically. While it can help regrow hair fast it can also help you lose it fast if you take it and then stop!
It is important that you keep eating the correct macro and micro nutrients that hair requires to grow.
Finally keep a close eye on any shedding of hair, look at your pillow when you wake up in the morning, how much hair is on your comb when you brush your hair. If the amount of hair you shed dramatically increases it may mean a change in treatment is needed.
Hair loss is a very personal and individualized issue that needs to be examined on a case by case basis. What works for someone will not necessarily work for someone else.
There are a number of hair loss treatments at our disposal to combat this issue as discussed in this guide.
We hope this guide has been helpful to you, and I would be happy to answer any questions or comments you may have.
