Derma Rolling For Hair Restoration
How common is hair loss?
Hair loss and a receding hairline is a sign that age is taking its toll on our bodies. For men, there is a very good chance that it's only a matter of time before you start to notice that your hairline is receding. For 20% of men, male pattern baldness (androgenetic alopecia or AGA) starts as early as puberty. They will probably have extensive hair loss by the age of 30 or even younger. For them, male pattern baldness is extremely rapid and extensive.
For a further 60% of men, the hair loss process is more gradual, and starts later on in life. Regardless of the time frame however, near total baldness across the majority of the head areas affects most of the male adult population.
Female Hair Loss
Hair loss for men is more socially acceptable. Women on the other hand, often face a more traumatic experience from unexpected hair loss. While early adolescence and the 20's are potential problem times for women susceptible to generic hair loss, menopause is an equally critical time.
The rate of hair growth is 1/8 inch per week (faster than any other part of the body except bone marrow).
This process of hair loss and hair re-growth is continuous and natural, it is only when daily hair loss greatly exceeds this rate that an unnatural condition may be present. The human head has an average of around 100,000 hair follicles, which can each produce about 20 hairs in a lifetime.
Does hair color make a difference?
People with red hair have 25% fewer scalp hairs than those with brown hair; whilst those with blond hair have 25% more scalp hairs and those with brown hair. This fact may account for the belief that men with red hair are more likely to go bald than anyone else.
DHT - A Factor in Male Hair Loss
This is a powerful hormone in our bodies, which can adversely affect the hair on our head. It is very important for a person to have proper nutrition to maintain hair. When DHT reaches the hair follicles and dermal papilla, it tends to prevent proteins, vitamins and minerals from providing the necessary nourishment to sustain life in the hair of these follicles. Due to this, the hair follicles tend to reproduce at a slower rate and this in turn either shortens the growing phase of the hair follicles or lengthens its resting stage. This can result in a shrinking of the hair follicle, which makes hair growth more difficult and makes hair more vulnerable to falling out.
Other Hair Loss Factors
In addition to the chemical effects that influence hair growth, poor nutrition, stress and old age also have an adverse affect on the ability to reproduce hair at a fast enough rate.
