Losing hair quicker than usual? Find Dr. Ko!
While shedding up to 100 strands of hair every day is normal and part of the aging process, losing way more than that, may be a sign of a deeper problem.
Excessive hair loss can leave bald patches and thinning on hair-bearing sites outside of the scalp such as the brows, moustache, or beard. The most common type of abnormal hair loss is androgenetic alopecia, followed by alopecia areata.
Androgenetic alopecia, also known as patterned hair loss, affects both men and women and major factors that contribute to this condition include genetics, aging, and excessive production of androgen (a type of male hormone).
As for alopecia areata, it’s a condition where hair loss occurs in patches, resulting in either diffused or total hair loss. This can extend beyond the scalp to the eyebrows, beard, and other parts of the body.
It is also caused by autoimmunity, where the body’s immune cells mistakenly identify hair follicles as foreign agents and attack them, thus causing hair to fall out.
