There are many types of hair loss, and some are more easily addressed than others. For instance, the condition Telogen Effluvium, which presents as excessive shedding, is commonly associate with factors such as stress and diet, just to mention a few. If the sufferer is aware that one of these two factors is most likely the cause of their hair loss, the sufferer can take steps to improve the condition on their own by reducing stress or by changing their diet. However, the same condition could also be a result of hormonal irregularities, and it is often seen in women going through menopause or women who have just given birth. Conditions such as Alopecia Areata, Alopecia Totalis and Alopecia Universalis are different because they are autoimmune diseases, meaning, they are caused by internal factors in the sufferer’s body. However, autoimmune diseases can also be influenced by external factors, including stress and diet.

What all types of hair loss have in common is that they stem from a disruption to the normal Hair Growth Cycle. Essentially, this means that the three phases in the Hair Growth Cycle change duration. The Anagen (growth) phase is shortened, the hairs therefore enter the Catagen (transition) phase prematurely and the last phase, the Telogen (resting) phase, is prolonged. As a result, the hairs are shed sooner than normally and often fewer hairs are induced back into the growth phase, which results in less and weaker regrowth.

Hair loss and thinning should be addressed as soon as possible to ensure the best possible treatment outcome. The goal of any approach should be to normalise the Hair Growth Cycle to lengthen the growth phase and push back the resting phase to its normal level. The hair restoration comes into play, when the Hair Growth Cycle is normalised, meaning, the hairs caught the resting phase, which have been dormant, are induced back into the growth phase. Due to the natural duration of the Hair Growth Cycle, it will take up to six months to see an improvement in hair growth.

Certain types of hair loss are harder to address than others, such as autoimmune and genetic hair loss, in which cases it is essential to be proactive to avoid a worsening of the condition. Essentially, hair restoration becomes increasingly harder as more and more hair follicles stop producing hair altogether, which is why the right approach is crucial and it should be started as soon as possible.
