Hair Loss

Hair loss is a common concern that many individuals experience at some point in their lives. Whether it's finding a few strands on your hairbrush or noticing a receding hairline, it's natural to wonder if hair loss is a normal part of the aging process or if it indicates an underlying problem. We will delve into the world of hair loss, exploring its causes, prevalence, and when it might be a cause for concern. If you are worried at any point about your hair loss you can contact a HairOK clinician at any time on 02030029119 or visit

Is Hair Loss Normal?

First and foremost, it's essential to understand that hair loss is a natural and common phenomenon for both men and women. On average, we lose about 50 to 100 hairs per day due to the natural hair growth cycle. Hair goes through three phases: anagen (growth), catagen (transitional), and telogen (resting). During the telogen phase, hairs are shed to make way for new ones to grow.

Age Related Hair Loss

As we age, it's normal to experience changes in our hair, including a gradual thinning of the hair shaft and a slower rate of hair growth. This age-related hair loss is often referred to as androgenetic alopecia or male/female pattern baldness. In men, it typically results in a receding hairline and thinning at the crown, while in women, it leads to overall hair thinning.

Other Causes of Hair Loss

While some degree of hair loss is normal with age, there are various other factors that can contribute to hair loss, including:

Hormonal Changes: Fluctuations in hormones, such as during pregnancy, menopause, or thyroid disorders, can lead to temporary hair shedding.

Medical Conditions: Certain medical conditions like alopecia areata (an autoimmune disorder causing patchy hair loss), scalp infections, and underlying health issues may contribute to hair loss.

Medications: Some medications, such as those used to treat cancer, depression, arthritis, and heart problems, can cause hair loss as a side effect.

Stress: Chronic stress can lead to a condition called telogen effluvium, where a large number of hair follicles enter the resting phase, resulting in excessive shedding.

Hair Loss Advice, Prevention and Management with HairOK

When to seek professional advice?

While hair loss is generally a natural occurrence, it's essential to pay attention to any sudden or severe hair loss that seems out of the ordinary. If you notice clumps of hair falling out, a rapidly receding hairline, or bald patches, it may be prudent to seek professional advice from a dermatologist or healthcare provider. They can help identify the underlying cause and recommend appropriate treatments or lifestyle changes.
