Hair Loss Treatment
Alopecia is a common problem faced by both women and men of all ages, and often also children. Forty percent of patients who experience temporary or long-term hair loss are women. In some cases of alopecia thinning or loss of hair can affect the entire surface of the head, in others, it begins at the crown and spreads to the rest of the head. Unlike men, bald recesses rarely occur in women.
An average, healthy person has about 100,000 hairs follicle that usually produces up to 3 hairs. The growth phase varies from two to six years. Before the hair falls out, it is in the telogen stage which is a resting phase of the hair growth cycle. That is usually between 6 to 8 per cent of the whole scalp hair. If the number for various reasons exceed 8 per cent that can lead to hair loss.
That can happen due to hormone imbalances, medication, health problems or heritage.
About 80% of the hair should be in the growth phase.

Hair that is in the resting phase systematically falls out – it is a natural, physiological process, and we lose about 50 – 100 of them a day, always more during the washing.
In the growth phase – anagen, there should be about 80% of the hair, in the catagen – the involution period 1 – 2%, and in the resting phase – telogen which lasts 2 – 4 months, not more than 20%. The hair in the telogen, just before falling out is dead, has no connection with the blood vessels, and therefore is not affected to external stimulation (medications, diet, stress). It is simply in the follicle, waiting for it to fall out. Underneath is already growing a new anagen hair, which often pushes it out, making room for itself. Any reduction in the amount of anagen hair, and an increase in telogen, dead hair results in hair regrowth with the possibility of permanent hair loss. Hair in the growth phase is connected with blood vessels, therefore everything that is in our body goes to it – cortisol, drugs, toxins, hormones, deficiencies of active ingredients.
