Have you noticed your hair thinning or strands falling out recently? Don’t worry you are not alone. Hair loss is an extremely common problem for men, women and children of all ages and there are many causes. Hair loss can cause stress, lack of confidence, depression, and reluctance to go out and be seen. Thankfully there are different solutions on offer even in New Zealand.
Below are some common hair loss triggers.
If you’re losing your hair early or more than others your age, it’s likely that your mother/father or grandparents suffered from hair loss too.
If you are a crash dieter you are more likely to lose hair. Lack of nutrients such as protein, iron, omega 3 fatty acids, zinc and vitamin C starve the hair follicles causing hair loss.
The thyroid gland regulates hormone levels so if the gland isn’t working, hair loss can be a result.
This disease is when the body’s immune system attacks hair follicles which causes patches of hair loss. Alopecia can occur at any age and without warning.
Certain infections such as ringworm, can infect the hair, skin and scalp, leading to hair loss.
Certain medications for cancer, arthritis, lupus, depression and high blood pressure can cause hair loss.
Government Subsidies are available in New Zealand to help children and adults with hair loss. Hair loss can be quite stressful especially if you are young, female or in contact with people through education or work.
They are an expensive but sometimes effective option for hair loss. Hair loss clinics offer treatments that reactivate tired and suffering hair roots to naturally regrow more hair. The hair and scalp is also cleansed to improve the overall condition and appearance of hair.
