is a normal physiological phenomenon. On average, a person has about 100,000 hairs, with 70 to 100 strands falling out each day while new growth replenishes it. The growth rate of hair is approximately 0.27-0.4 millimeters per day. Hair has its growth cycle, which includes the growth phase, resting phase, and degradation phase. Most hair usually is in the growth phase, so hair loss is not noticeable.
and characteristics are influenced by a variety of factors such as genetics, immune system, diseases, medication, and nutrition. If hair loss is severe and results in less hair growth or fewer hairs, it is necessary to go to the hospital for a comprehensive examination and try to find out the cause of the hair loss to improve treatment effectiveness.
To control and manage severe hair loss, there are several methods such as avoiding chronic mental stress, controlling how frequently you wash your hair, selecting appropriate shampoo, dietary adjustment, medication, and surgical treatment. For example, you can reduce stress by proper rest or adequate exercise, control your hair washing frequency to 2-5 days, and select shampoo based on your hair type and change shampoo types regularly. Moreover, you should avoid smoking and alcohol and limit spicy and greasy foods. Hair loss medication can help to stop hair loss and improve hair growth. Surgical treatments like hair transplantation, scalp reduction surgery, and tissue expansion are available but are not applicable for those with no hair follicle donors or pregnant women.
In conclusion, preventing hair loss is key, and maintaining healthy hair habits is the best way to prevent hair loss.
