Hair loss can range from mild thinning to complete baldness. When the loss of hair is constant, it can negate personal coping strategies for self-acceptance. Despite what many experts say, in our appearance-laden culture, your personal value or self-worth is (sadly) often defined by your outer appearance. In fact, its been reported that:

However, this does not mean that individuals should let intimidation and helplessness keep them from taking steps to prevent future hair loss. Instead, hair loss sufferers should address the cause through the approaches of modern medicine and nutritional supplementation. Concerning those with hair loss issues: individuals who take the initiative to understand and manage their condition are often the ones that feel best about themselves.

Hair is cyclical, and goes through a pattern or number of distinct phases. The anagen phase is the growing phase; catagen is referred to a transitional phase between growth and follicle resting; and lastly, the telogen phase is the cessation of growth. The telogen or latent phase is when hair loss occurs. Over the course of our lifetimes, a single hair follicle may undergo as many as 10 to 20 of these anagen-catagen-telogen cycles. This may seem excessive, but keep in mind that the telogen phase only encompasses 10-15% of hair follicles and lasts only 100 to 200 days. On the other hand, 85-95% of our body hairs are in a constant growth (anagen) phase. So how does hair loss occur amidst all this growth?

Normally, we lose between 50 and 100 hairs per day as a result of our normal hair cycle. However, when this cycle is abnormal and hair loss is no longer falling out in a natural, random pattern, you may develop a temporary or ongoing disease state. This is termed Alopecia. Unfortunately, certain individuals are predisposed to the types of hair loss which progress into this disease state. Physical harm to the scalp, certain medications, excessive use of styling products, surgical procedures, severe infection, eating disorders, and certain physiological conditions, such as thyroid disease, are other causes of temporary or permanent hair loss.
