Hair Fall Treatment

Hair fall is a complex & diverse problem. It is among the commonest reasons for which patient consult a dermatologist. 

Before we dive deeper into hair fall, let’s know few basic things.

  • On normal scalp, hairs are in a cycle.
    With 90% hairs in Anagen Phase, meaning they are thick, actively growing & have tight root anchorage.
    About 10% hairs are in Telogen Phase, meaning they are thin, not growing & have loose root.
  • This Anagen: Telogen ratio of 9:1 , alters in different disorders.
  • Anagen duration range from 8-9 years and telogen lasts for 3 months.
  • Around 100 telogen hairs are normally shed daily, to be replaced by anagen hairs.

    So, The hair fall or alopecias are divided into those with destruction of hair root (scarring) & those in intact hair roots (Non-scarring).
  • Scarring alopecia can be stopped to progress if diagnosed & treated in time. But are hard to reverse.
