What is androgenic alopecia?
Human hair has an average life of 3 to 6 years. On average, your head loses between 50 and 100 hairs every day. A faster rate of hair loss may be due to the changing seasons (particularly the arrival of autumn), or may be caused by giving birth to a child or another significant event (even if it happened several months before).
In these circumstances, such loss is temporary, and medical treatment is unnecessary. Instead, try taking a cystine- or vitamin PP-based dietary supplement (such as Doriance Capillaire or Oenobiol Capillaire ) for 3 months, in conjunction with a pro-growth shampoo (such as Cystine B6).
Alopecia is defined as hair loss at a rate of more than 100 hairs a day. There are two types:
– acute alopecia; and
– chronic alopecia.
If the alopecia is acute (i.e. hair loss is sudden and happens over a brief period), hair loss may be either widespread or localised. It often has a known cause (such as damage by hair care products, poor general health, a poorly balanced weight loss plan, use of certain medicines, mental trauma or stress). Do not use this product to treat acute alopecia.
If the alopecia is chronic, hair loss is nearly always widespread. It is sometimes caused by a specific illness (particularly of the thyroid, or related to metabolism), and likewise should not be treated using this product. In the vast majority of cases, chronic alopecia is of unknown cause, although it may be hereditary; this is what known as androgenic alopecia.
Use minoxidil for androgenic alopecia only.
How do I identify androgenic alopecia?In women, androgenic alopecia is not localised: instead, the hair experiences a general loss of density. Hairs lighten gradually from the parting.
In men, the onset of androgenic alopecia is marked by loss of hair at the temples, followed by the appearance of a bald patch high on the scalp. These two hairless areas will gradually expand, ultimately causing total baldness.
If your symptoms persist, consult your doctor.
