TEMPORARY HAIR LOSS: CAUSES AND SYMPTOMS
Most of the men are asking these questions:
“Why does my hair fall?”, “Am I going to be bald?” “What I have to do now?”
The androgenetic alopecia causes hair thinning and falling. This hair loss is a progressive process, and it may lead to a permanent hair loss.
Temporary Hair Loss in Men
Temporary hair loss in men can be caused by several reasons, including hypothyroidism. This is where the thyroid gland doesn’t produce enough thyroid hormone, contributing to thinning hair. Treating hypothyroidism, which usually involves the use of the synthetic thyroid hormone levothyroxine, will typically reverse your hair loss. Additional causes of temporary hair loss in men are general anesthesia, physical trauma and high fever which can lead to an acute telogen effluvium.
Temporary Hair Loss and Stress
Hair loss can also be caused by extreme physical or emotional stress. It’s believed that cortisol hormone, which is released during stress, causes an increase in the dormant phase of hair. This can cause patchiness or a condition called telogen effluvium. Like most types of temporary hair loss, the condition can be reversed, and over time, your hair should return to its normal growth cycle.
Permanent Hair Loss
If your hair loss isn’t temporary, and is due to a progressive, non-inflammatory condition such as male or female pattern baldness, you still have plenty of options for restoring your hair, including hair transplantation—the only permanent solution to hair loss.
