What is Hair Loss?

Hair loss, which most people see as a problem, is actually beneficial for hair health. However, the size and duration of hair loss is the determining factor in terms of health. Under normal conditions, it allows healthier and stronger hair to come instead of weakening hair, so there is a balance between shedding and regrowth hair.

In a healthy person, the scalp has around 100 thousand hairs, as a matter of fact, it is considered normal to lose 100 hairs a day depending on combing and other factors. 

Sometimes an increase in the amount of hair shedding is observed and this can be caused by many reasons such as tension, stress, skin diseases. Hair loss due to these types of reasons is also considered normal, but in shedding that lasts longer than two months, there may be another reason behind the problem.

For this reason, it is necessary to consult a specialist as soon as possible in order to experience a balanced hair loss and prevent possible risks.  

What are the Causes of Hair Loss?

Hair loss is a problem that develops under the influence of many factors and is generally more common in men. Shedding, which usually starts after puberty in men, can lead to regional or complete baldness. Hair loss, which can be temporary or permanent, can also be seen in women and is generally caused by the following reasons:

Genetic predisposition

Genetic factors are among the main causes of hair loss. Generally, people with a family history of hair loss are at higher risk of hair loss than normal. This situation, which is caused by gene interaction, especially affects men and leads to permanent baldness problems. With the advancing age, the rate of shedding also increases and the bald area expands. The same is true for women, and the risk is higher for people who have relatives with baldness. In addition to this, malnutrition, hormonal changes and stress may accompany genetic predisposition.

Psychological Factors 

Even though hair loss is a physical problem, there may be psychological problems such as stress, depression, anxiety and excessive anxiety. In some cases, the source of eczema observed on the scalp is also psychological factors. For this reason, people who experience shedding should stay away from stress as much as possible and increase their moral motivation.

Scalp Problems 

Hair loss may occur as a result of eczema, psoriasis, excessively oily scalp, hair fungus, ringworm and similar skin disorders. In this type of spills, eliminating the existing skin problem usually helps to solve the problem and permanent problems do not occur. However, in cases that are not treated in a timely manner and are neglected, the level of the shedding may increase greatly.

Not Enough Feeding 

An inadequate and unbalanced diet negatively affects general body health.

As a result, many problems may arise with hair loss.

The fact that the body does not get enough of the nutrients it needs causes some body functions to be poorly nourished and weakened.

The scalp is also adversely affected by an excessively oily, unhealthy and nutritious diet.

Hair follicles that cannot be nourished begin to weaken and fall out, and the newly grown hair looks lifeless than normal.

Vitamin and Mineral Deficiency 

Vitamin and mineral deficiency, which is associated with malnutrition, is a problem observed in people with a balanced diet in some cases. Even if there is a balanced and adequate diet, the vitamins and minerals required for hair health may not be consumed. 

Especially vitamins D and B12 and minerals such as zinc, biotin and folic acid strengthen hair follicles.

If these values are low in the blood tests, the reason behind the hair loss will be found and the problem can be solved by taking the necessary supplements. 

Hair Loss in Women

Hair loss in women is mostly caused by genetic predisposition, but completely baldness is rarely encountered in this type of hair loss. Mostly, shedding is regional and develops with the thinning of the hair strands.

Side factors such as giving birth, an unbalanced diet, and vitamin and mineral deficiency may also cause a genetic predisposition to emerge more rapidly. There is an increase in shedding, especially after hormonal disorders and menopause. In addition, hair loss is higher than normal in hair that is dyed frequently and exposed to high heat such as perm and maia.  

Hair Loss in Children

Hair loss in children begins in the 20s, when puberty ends, and is often associated with stress, hormonal problems and various diseases. Among the most common causes is ringworm disease, in which case intermittent circular spaces begin to form on the scalp. The untreated ringworm problem may progress to the eyebrows and eyelashes; It can cause complete loss of hair. This type of shedding in children is usually treatable in a short time and therefore a specialist physician should be consulted in time. 

How is Hair Loss Treated?

In order to treat hair loss, the diagnosis must be made correctly. When the source of the problem is determined precisely, different treatment methods can be applied for it. It is very important to pay attention to the selection of hair care products used in people who experience shedding, to eat at a sufficient level and to stay away from stress. In cases with underlying disease, these problems must be solved first and in other cases, different therapeutic methods may be used. 


Medicationcan be used with the recommendation of a physician to prevent existing hair loss and strengthen existing hair. These drugs are effective in light and moderate spills that have just started; It can be useful for strengthening thinned and weakened hair. However, the effect of the drug is generally to prevent new shedding and to thicken thinning hair, so this method is not useful for people who experience heavy shedding.

Hair Mesotherapy 

Hair mesotherapy, which is a method frequently used in hair loss; It is a method of injecting the minerals, antioxidants, vitamins and circulation regulators that hair needs for growth into the scalp. The procedure, which is carried out using micro needles, lasts an average of 5-10 sessions and is successful in both women and men. Session intervals applied as monthly or annual cures are determined according to the extent of baldness in the person. 

PRP Hair Treatment 

PRP, which is one of the most effective methods against hair loss, is applied by passing the patient's own blood through various processes and injecting it into the hair follicle. This method is generally used in hair loss caused by genetic factors and ensures that the hair follicles are nourished by the person's own tissues. If necessary, it can be applied together with mesotherapy.

Hair Transplant 

This method, which has a high success rate in male pattern hair loss, aims to eliminate the problems caused by male hormone. In male pattern shedding, hair-producing cells begin to die due to hormonal factors and hair strands are thinned and shed. In such cases, hair transplantation is the most definitive and permanent solution. 

Physician recommendation and general health status are effective in determining the treatment method in hair loss due to different factors. You can definitely get rid of hair loss problems by consulting a specialist.
