I did... I had a dream where I woke up from my bed and looked at my pillow. My hair had all fallen off and man.... it seriously freaked me out. I wouldn't even dare to look into the mirror.
Why is hair SO important to us? Hair is important to everyone because it forms like a beautiful covering on our head and that is why it's considered as a person's crowning glory too. With hair, you can have different kind of hairstyles that suit you best, hairstyle that can take years off your face and can instantly make you look chic and sexy. Most people will think of changing their hairstyle if they want to update their look. Thus we CANNOT lose our hair.
Our hair is made of a type of protein called keratin. A single hair consists of a hair shaft (the part that shows), a root below the skin, and a follicle, from which the hair root grows. At the lower end of the follicle is the hair bulb, where the hair's color pigment, or melanin, is produced.
On average, Most people lose about 50 to 100 head hairs a day. These hairs are replaced — they grow back in the same follicle on your head. This amount of hair loss is totally normal and no cause for worry. If you're losing more than that, though, something might be wrong.
Research has shown that hair loss is caused by the following factors:
• hormone imbalance
• pregnancy / childbirth
• overuse of styling aids
• changing nutritional habits
• environmental pollution
Female hair loss typically occurs at the front and top of the head, or general thinning of the hair crop. Fortunately, there are effective counteractive measures to fight these hair problems.
The Hamilton's scale that we have reproduced for you above, classifies the different types of baldness from 1 to 7. This chart is very useful when describing your hair loss or as a yard stick to measure your own hair loss progression or re-growth. By referring to this Hamilton scale of baldness, Svenson will be able to closely monitor your hair growth, and give you an accurate progress report of your hair condition. The typical pattern of hair loss is divided into seven categories. No hair loss is termed 'type 1'. Minor recession of the frontal hairline is termed 'type 2'. Type 3 indicates further frontal loss, and is considered aesthetically significant. The subset of type 3, termed '3 vertex', shows significant frontal recession coupled with hair loss from the vertex region of the scalp. Types 4-6 show further frontal and vertex loss, culminating in type 7, in which only the occipital scalp region maintains significant amounts of hair.
Illustrated Story- Hair Problem May Affect A Person Self-Esteem & Social Activities (Photo taken by myself) Alice was only a 25 years old girl and she had bald patch problem. This problem had greatly affected her self-esteem and self-confidence in front of others.
Not only that, it also affected her social activities. During this period, she restricted herself at home and never go on a date with any guys. Alice decided to put a stop to her hair loss problem. In order to do that, she did the right choice in finding a professional trichologist who helped her to put in place a multi-strategy programme tailor-made to her hair loss problem.Upon completion of the prescribed hair treatment, not only Alice regained back her beautiful hair but also her self-esteem and self-confidence. She is now more confident in public and also not afraid to go on date with the guy she like.
