Alopeciaaerata Hair Loss Homeopathic treatment

Hair loss is one of the most distressing symptoms a patient can have, not because of its life-threatening nature, but because the fear of baldness, and its accompanying social stigma, is so great in our society. Unfortunately, conventional medicine has little to offer sufferers of hair loss, particularly when they have the form known as alopecia areata. This is where patches of skin become very sparse, with small stumpy hairs known as "exclamation mark hairs". In some people the condition is restricted to small, easily disguised areas, However, in the more unfortunate, it can spread to involve the whole scalp and sometimes other areas on the body. The majority of patients regain their hair, eventually, but it usually takes several months, or even years, to regrow.

The hair is the richest ornament of women thus said Martin Luther but he would have surely wanted to change his quote had he lived in present times. Whether its women or men, they hold hair to be equally IMPORTANT in today's scenario and alopecia areata can be a big cause of concern for both.In modern world look effect not only confidence of person but also impression on others also .A person which lost his hairs looks more Elder than other of same age group of people.

Hair Growth Cycle

The three stages of hair growth are the anagen, catagen, and telogen phases. Each strand of hair on the human body is at its own stage of development. Once the cycle is complete, it restarts and a new strand of hair begins to form. The rate or speed of hair growth is about 1.25 centimetres or 0.5 inches per month, or about 15 centimetres or 6 inches per year.

Anagen phase

The anagen phase is known as the growth phase. It begins in the papilla and can last from two to six years. The span at which the hair remains in this stage of growth is determined by genetics. The longer the hair stays in the anagen phase, the faster and longer it will grow. During this phase, the cells in the papilla divide to produce new hair fibers, and the follicle buries itself into the dermal layer of the skin to nourish the strand. About 85% of the hairs on one's head are in the anagen phase at any given time.

Catagen phase

Signals sent out by the body determine when the anagen phase ends and the catagen phase begins. The catagen phase, also known as the transitional phase, allows the follicle to, in a sense, renew itself. During this time, which lasts about two weeks, the hair follicle shrinks due to disintegration and the papilla detaches and "rests," cutting the hair strand off from its nourishing blood supply. Ultimately, the follicle is 1/6 its original length, causing the hair shaft to be pushed upward. While hair is not growing during this phase, the length of the terminal fibers increase when the follicle pushes them upward.

Telogen phase

During the telogen, or resting, phase the hair and follicle remain dormant anywhere from 1–4 months. Ten to fifteen percent of the hairs on one's head are in this phase of growth at any given time. The anagen phase begins again once the telogen phase is complete. The preceding hair strand is pushed up and out by the new, growing strand. The process causes the normal hair loss known as shedding.

Causes of Hair loss in male :

The cause of hair loss in men is very similar to the cause of hair loss in women when it comes to the medical aspect of hair loss. There are some diseases and medications that can cause men to lose their hair and in some cases it is inherited.  However men don't usually lose hair because of mismanagement of chemicals, such as those used in dyse or braids and things like that as women do. Nevertheless balding is a bigger problem with men's hair loss than with women.

Balding is a normal process that develops in certain degrees in all men. This process is influenced by the male hormone called androgen. Hormones are produced in the body and send massages to stimulate every part of the body and this includes the follicles of the hair. Balding can also be passed down from generation to generation and can be inherited from both sides of the family.

Balding is due to a progressive miniaturization of individual hair follicles which become smaller and have shorter growth cycles. The hairs become smaller and narrower and the number of follicles remains the same. A man that is bald has the same number of follicles in his head as a man with a full head of hair.

The extent of the baldness varies as some men have a small recession of hair in the front while some lose their hair on the center of the scalp, which ends up as a bald spot and some end up with just a thinning of the hair all over the head or the extreme is complete baldness.

There are some things that can be done for baldness if the causes are such things as ringworm. This is where small patches of hair loss occur but it is associated with the ringworm itself, which can be treated with medication with good results.




Causes of Hair loss in Females:

There are many reasons that can be the cause of female hairloss. We all lose a certain amount of hair on a daily basis, but with some people this hair loss can become extreme. An illness can be one of those reasons that would make some of our Hair falll out and hormonal problems can also have the same effect in women. If you have an overactive or underactive thyroid problem, you can end up with the same problem. There are also medicines that can cause hair loss as well as some infections, such as a fungal infection of the scalp. There is also a threat to the hair if you have diseases such as diabetes or lupus. Women can also become bald as well as men. This happens when the hair starts thinning drastically over the entire head.

Hair loss can also be attributed to mismanagement of your hair. If your hair is not properly taken care of, it will start breaking down and falling out. This applies to people that wear pigtails or corn rows and also those that damage their hair by using too many chemicals on the hair, such as those used in the dying process. In this case you can develop what is known as alopecia and this involves excessive pulling of the hair especially along the facial area. If this is continued, it can lead to scarring of the scalp and the hair will not grow back in these areas. Perms and the chemicals used for them can also cause this problem such as scaring and hair loss, as well as hair rollers, braids and weaves. 

Today's hairdressers are moving toward the more natural look in women's hair. There are many things that you will find on the market that will give you the look you want without doing damage to the roots of your hair. The only way to go in the present day world is natural for a look of healthy happy hair.
