Premature hair loss

CATEGORIES SCIENTIFIC AREA

Scientific collaboration between Professor Marco Toscani and Dr. Pasquale Fino, Chair of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery, Umberto I Health Center – “Sapienza” University of Rome.

Recent studies have demonstrated that around one in five young men tend to lose their hair prematurely over time.
This problem does not affect only young men but also young women.

In the majority of cases, it is androgenetic alopecia (pattern hair loss) and therefore is hereditary/genetic. However, it is important to remember that often factors of psychological origin like performance anxiety, trauma and emotional stress take over, thereby becoming a source and cause of hair loss from stress.

Men suffer from this more than women. The percentages are, respectively, 65% and 35%.
It should also be noted that today the number of young women who are afflicted with hair loss is notably and constantly increasing.

Among the causes that lead to hair loss in women we include lack of sleep, improper diet (very restrictive diets or those with little variety) and cigarette smoke.
The hair loss manifests with excessive sebum production and thinning hair that becomes more and more thin and fragile. Eventually it falls out and does not grow back.

Hair loss leads to serious psychological consequences both in adults and in young people.
Thinning hair, receding hair and hair loss cause a sense of embarrassment and inadequacy, leading young people to isolate themselves. In fact, many young men stop going to school, precisely to avoid contact with those their age.
Moreover, it has been psychologically proven that hair loss causes a sense of inadequacy that seriously compromises the psychological development of an adolescent. What occurs is that a profound psychological crisis is added to a problem that was initially only an aesthetic one. The depression derives from the fact that a young person in this situation feels uncomfortable as a result of the continuous preoccupation with imagining what others think seeing him without hair. The mirror, the first strength of adolescents, now becomes an enemy that is often contacted and that cannot be avoided because it allows you to check the progression of the hair thinning or recession, thereby leading to a chronic state of anxiety. Young men suffering from this problem try in every way to fix their hair so that the receding hairline is noted as little as possible.
This whole situation leads young people to lower their self esteem and self confidence and to lose sight of their objectives, it leads them to abandon their studies or work, contributing also to the loss of friendships or romantic relationships.

The best weapon remains, as always, prevention. In fact, it is necessary to resolve the problem at the root as soon as it manifests itself with targeted trichological treatments and anti-hair loss remedies that guarantee restoration of a good scalp condition. The first thing to do when this occurs is turn to industry professionals for a proper and careful hair and skin exam, as a first step that guarantees (except in the cases of serious hair loss or illness) a proper overview of the clinical situation and the creation of a proper and effective therapy.

Dry hair

Both men and women of any age may have dry hair. This situation is endured not only as an aesthetic problem, but in time may represent a problem concerning hair health. Dry hair often appears weak, fragile and tends to become brittle and to break.
Dry hair often has split ends and other forms of damage to the shaft.
