Top 10 Signs You May Need To See A Hair Loss Specialist

The problem with hair loss is that the longer you wait, the harder it is to reverse the
damage. Early detection, strategy, and a treatment plan give you a greater chance of
keeping your hair. In comparison to starting a treatment program after your hair has
completely fallen out and all of your follicles are no longer viable. Waiting to treat your
hair loss could lead to missing your window of opportunity to take advantage of some of
the most popular and cost-effective treatment options and methods.

How Do I Know When It’s Time To Do Something About My Hair loss?

Keep in mind that hair loss varies between men and women. If you are noticing
excessive large amounts of hair collecting in your brush, or clumps of hair in the
basin/bath plugholes when shampooing, showering or bathing. With women signs of
hair loss and hair condition may include:

● A widened hair parting. It is very rare that women develop complete baldness. In fact, women usually keep the hairline on their forehead and generally lose hair from the top of the head, usually more visible after menopause.
● Weaving and tight hairstyles can cause traction alopecia. With this in mind, it’s best to avoid harsh hair care products and styling options.
● Certain hairstyles such as braids and weaves may increase the risk of an irreversible type of baldness called Central Centrifugal Cicatricial Alopecia (CCCA) that starts at the central part of the scalp and spreads out toward the edge of the hairline.
● Patchy or Round Bald areas: Alopecia areata causes smooth patches or bald spots around the size of a large coin, on the scalp.

 

If you think that you may have a hair loss condition, it’s imperative to see your primary
care physician, and or dermatologist to further investigate the cause of your hair loss
and to rule out any underlying medical issues or side effects.

A hair loss specialist is a healthcare professional who may or may not be a medical
doctor, but specializes common causes of alopecia. However, there is a medical
professional that specializes in a particular type of hair loss. For instance, for hormonal
hair loss, you would consider seeking assistance from an endocrinologist.

The advantage of seeing your primary care physician is that you can gain valuable
information as it relates to possible causes pertaining to medications or underlying
medical issues. Your primary care doctor can also refer you to a dermatologist or
appropriate specialist that will assist you in the next phase of your hair loss journey.

Do You Have Hair Loss or Hair Shedding?

You may think that you’re suffering from hair loss, when in fact you could actually just
be shedding more hair than usual. There is actually a difference between hair loss and
hair shedding. When a person has excessive shedding this is called Telogen Effluvium.
If you’re suffering from hair loss, there is a good chance that your hair will not grow until
the cause is eliminated.

Hair loss occurs when something causes the hair to stop growing. The medical term for
this condition is Anagen Effluvium. According to the American Academy of Dermatology
excessive hair shedding is most common in people who have experienced one of the
following stressors:

● Lost 20 pounds or more
● Given birth
● Experiencing lots of stress
( caring for a loved one who is sick, going through a divorce, losing a job)
● Had high fever
● Undergone an operation
● Recovering from an illness, especially if you had a high fever
● Stopped taking birth control pills

In most cases people notice excess hair shedding a few months after a stressful event.
New moms can often see excessive shedding about 2 months after giving birth. This
type of shedding is considered to be normal and temporary. Shedding may peak about
4 months after birth. If you suspect experiencing hair loss or suspect that a treatment or
drug is the cause, consult with your doctor.

Women that inherit the genes for hereditary hair loss tend to notice gradual thinning.
With men hair loss usually, manifests with the appearance of a receding hairline or bald
patch that begins in the center of the scalp.

Treatment helps most people who are struggling with hair loss, but not everyone. Your
primary care doctor or dermatologist can help you find the cause or causes and set a
realistic expectation as it relates to reversing the signs of hair loss.

Just know that there are treatment options available for many types of hair loss. The
sooner you take action, the better your prognosis.
