Thinning Hair

Thinning hair can be a natural part of the ageing process - after all you don’t see many 70 year olds with a full head of hair (Donald Trump excepted!). However, when you start to notice extra hairs on a comb or brush or in the shower plug it may be time to consider more carefully why this is happening particularly if you are in your twenties of thirties.

Thinning hair can be a result of a change in lifestyle; a stressful situation at home or work can precipitate hair loss and it’s common knowledge that many medications – especially chemotherapy- will cause the hair to thin. In most cases the hair does grow back to its original length and density after the course of chemotherapy with any requirement for further treatment.

Research on male hair loss has found that smoking, drinking and exposure to sun contribute significantly to hair loss and thinning hair; women who have recently lost a spouse or who have gone through a difficult divorce have a significantly higher risk of losing their hair.

We receive enquiries from patients all around the world who are currently experiencing thinning hair or hair loss and we are fully aware of the stress, anxiety and other emotional problems that can come from losing ones hair especially if they are young. It is an important part of people’s identity and we understand that. .

As mentioned before there are many factors involved with thinning hair and it’s important to get a full understanding of a patient’s background and medical history before advising on any course of treatment. Many people come to us after trying snake-oil remedies or strange shampoos that do nothing except leave you out of pocket and whilst there are some good medications available for thinning hair they don’t usually reverse the process merely slow it down.
