What causes hair loss?

  • 02 Feb 0

Hair loss can be a very stressful issue and can impact anyone regardless of their gender or age. Hair loss impacts the way we feel about ourselves and can easily shake our confidence, leading to bigger emotional issues. There are various reasons why hair loss can occur and there are also many treatment options, from home remedies to more invasive techniques, always keeping in mind that each individual has different needs. We, at Swiss Luxury Clinic always aim to tailor our advice, method and procedure to what each person requires in order to be healthy and happy.

Our hair is made up of a protein called keratin, which is produced in hair follicles in the outer layer of skin. As follicles produce new hair cells, old cells are being pushed out through the surface of the skin. The average rate of growth is fifteen centimeters per year. However, as we grow older, the rate of hair growth decreases.

Hair loss may also depend on genetic factors. This means that hair follicles gradually shrink and produce finer and shorter hairs with each growth cycle. Hair loss may also be related to reactive factors. In this case, hair loss is the result of a trigger. In other words hair loss can also be the result of a genetic imbalance.

Stress, both physical and or emotional, is one of the most common reasons for hair loss. However, many more factors play a significant role as well. Hormonal imbalance can affect hair growth. Deficiencies, such as a vitamin deficiency, an iron deficiency or suffering from anemia, also create the grounds for hair loss.

Of course, hereditary conditions and genes may make someone more prone to having to deal with hair loss. How does our overall health affect hair loss? Many men and women suffer with sudden hair loss, whether genetic, stress, diet, medication, or certain health conditions. Autoimmune diseases, thyroid disease, diabetes, lupus, anemia, are some of the most common health conditions that can cause hair loss.
