Symptoms of Hair loss

Northwich, Cheshire United Kingdom (PressExposure) April 13, 2007 -- Are you just into your 20’s and started experiencing hair loss symptoms? If your answer is yes, then you have spotted the right page. Hair loss is something which is faced by over half the population. It is often thought that it was only restricted to males but that is just not right and women too not spared. Approximately 60% population is experiencing hair loss symptoms and reasons may vary from person to person. Prior to beginning with hair loss medication it is wise to know the possible reasons behind the hair loss symptoms and your receding hairline.

If you are losing hair on the temple or on the top of the head then this mainly due to androgenetic alopecia or inherited hair loss. This type of hair loss runs in the family from one generation to another. Also if you experience symptoms such as redness or inflammation of the scalp then this could be the result of your own immune system attacking your hair follicles. This mainly happens when your thyroid gland is either overactive or under active, or male (androgens) and female hormones (estrogens) are imbalanced. In short this can too result in hair loss.

At times women who gave birth to a baby experience hair loss symptoms and this continues for two-three months. This is the time when you can see tufts of hair are coming out in your brushes and combs. After seeing those tufts instead of panicking or getting depressed simply stay calm. This is a common problem which occurs with childbirth. This whole stage is known as post-partum hair loss and it gradually rectifies itself within a few months in most cases.

It has been seen that diet plays an important in curbing hair loss, thus people who start noticing hair loss symptoms simply go in for crash diets and develop protein malnutrition. However, giving a second thought to it is advisable as iron deficiency or inadequate protein intake may result in hair loss or hair thinning.
