Localized Hair Loss

A host of dermatologic situations can cause localized hair fall in women. The pattern that they produce is usually quite different from the diffuse arrangement of female genetic hair loss and is easily differentiated from it by an experienced dermatologist. Occasionally, the analysis is difficult to make and tests, such as a scalp biopsy are necessary. Localized hair shedding in women may be sub-divided into scarring and non-scarring types.

Non-Scarring Alopecias

Alopecia Areata is a genetic, autoimmune disorder that typifies the non-scarring type. It manifests with the sudden onset of various, round patches of hair loss associated with normal underlying skin. It usually replies quite well to local injections of cortico-steroids.

Localized hair fall can be also be caused by stable pulling on scalp hair, either through braiding, tight clips or hair systems. Traction alopecia, the medical term for this condition, often causes reversible thinning but, if the tugging on the follicles continue for an extended period of time, the hair shedding can be stable. The most common presentation is thinning, or complete hair shedding, at the frontal hairline and in the temples of women who wear their hair pulled tightly back. Early traction alopecia can reverse itself by simply wearing the hair loss. A hair transplant may be needed to restore the hair that is permanently lost from sustained traction.

Scarring Alopecias

Scarring hair loss can be caused by a variety of medical or dermatologic conditions such as Discoid Lupus, Lichen Planus, and infections. It can also be caused by thermal burns or local radiation therapy. Face-lift surgery may result in permanent localized hair fall that can be particularly bothersome if it occurs at the frontal hairline or around the temples. Fortunately, localized hair loss from injury or from medical problems are often susceptible to hair transplantation.

Medical Conditions That Can Cause Expanded Hair Loss in Women

hair-loss-grade-women

Women’s hair shown to be particularly sensitive to underlying medical conditions. Since systemic medical conditions often cause a diffuse type of hair fall arrangement that can be confused with genetic balding, it is important that women with undiagnosed alopecia be properly estimated by a doctor specializing in hair loss (i.e., a dermatologist).

Below is a list of medical conditions that can lead to a diffuse pattern of hair loss:

1.Obstetric and gynecologic conditions; such as post-partum and post-menopausal states or ovarian tumors

2.Anemia (iron deficiency)

3.Thyroid disease

4.Connective tissue diseases, such as Lupus

5.Nutritional causes including crash diets, bulimia, protein/calorie deficiency, essential fatty acid or zinc deficiency, malabsorbtion, and hypervitaminosis A

6.Stress from surgical procedures, general anesthesia, or severe emotional problems

Drugs That Can Cause Diffuse Hair Loss in Women

A relatively large number of drugs can cause “ telogen effluvium,” a condition where hair is shifted into a resting stage and then several months later hair loss. Fortunately, this falling is reversible if the medication is stopped, but the reaction can be confused with genetic female hair loss if not properly diagnosed. Chemotherapy and radiotherapy can cause a diffuse type of hair loss called “anagen effluvium” that can be very extensive. This hair loss is also reversible when the therapy is over, but the hair does not always return to its pre-treatment thickness.

Hair Shedding in Women & Aging

Many of the factors that cause the rate of loss to speed up or slow down are unknown, but we do know that with age, a person’s total hair quantity will decrease. This is referred to as senile alopecia. Even when there is no predisposition to genetic hair loss, hair across the entire scalp will thin over time resulting in the appearance of less density. The age at which these effects finally manifest themselves varies from one individual to another and is mainly related to a person’s genetic makeup.

What is a Hair Transplant?

Used in the U.S. since the 1950s, hair transplantation is surgery that associates removing a narrow strip of hair-bearing scalp from the back of the head and using it to fill an area with thin or no hair.Most hair transplants are achieved in the doctor’s office under local anesthesia.

hairtransplant2

To transplant hair, the surgeon first cleans the scalp, then injects an anesthetic to numb the area where a 3- to 4-inch strip of scalp will be removed. After removing the strip of scalp with a scalpel, the surgeon sets it aside and sews the scalp closed. This area is immediately hidden by the hair around it.

Next, the surgeon divides the strip of removed scalp into approximately 500 to 2,000 tiny grafts containing an individual hair or just a few hairs each. The number and type of graft used depends on the hair type, quality, and color as well as the size of the field where it will be transplanted.

nn3
After the grafts are arranged, the surgeon cleans and numbs the field where the hair will be placed, creates holes or slits with a scalpel or needle, and delicately places each graft in one of the holes.

Depending on the expansion of the procedure, the transplant will take approximately four to eight hours. Sometimes additional sessions are needed if you continue to lose hair or decide you want thicker hair.

The Emotional Impact of Hair Loss for Children

It doesn’t matter the cause or treatment plan, hair loss can be devastating to a child’s emotional health and self-esteem. Children who are arguing hair loss due to alopecia areata, trichotillomania, chemotherapy, radiation therapy or other causes can have an extremely difficult time adjusting to life without hair. In addition to a loss of self-confidence, these children often are ridiculed or bullied due to their baldness or thinning hair.

monster-high-draculaura-peruk

While your child is undergoing medication, one of the best ways to help her deal with the emotional impact of the hair loss is by wearing a wig. Kids just want their hair back and a wig can do that temporarily until their real hair regrows.

“Children are very sensitive about their view, especially when they are going to school; they try to be more careful about their wig wearing. The hair has to be good quality, as natural as possible, as if it were their own hair”.

Baby-Cosplay-Wig-Girls-font-b-Children-b-font-Short-font-b-Curly-b-font-font

Many parents are troubled that wigs won’t be able to withstand a child’s active lifestyle. “Kids are very active so they need something that they can feel very protected in and that feels like their own hair,” Khanis says. “For their cases, Follea has a Gripper Sport wig, which they can be very active in without worrying that it will come off. The Gripper wigs stay securely in place with medical grade silicone tabs, and do not require adhesives that can irritate the skin.”

Before purchasing a wig, try to get a prescription for the wig from your child’s doctor — it may be covered by your insurance. Remember that quality materials when it comes to a wig. A visible, unnatural wig may cause your child to be ridiculed even more by classmates and peers.

Children Hair Loss

Children’s Tinea Capitis

Tinea Capitis is an illness caused by fungal infection of the skin of the scalp, eyebrows and eyelashes, with a tendency for attacking hair shafts and follicles. It is also called “ringworm of the scalp“. The condition is caused by a fungus that occupies the hair shaft and causes the hairs to break. The naked patch of hair loss is often round and the scalp takes on a black-dotted stubble appearing from hair shafts broken off at the surface. There may also be moderate itching and scaling. The condition is transmitted by contact from one infected child to another through the sharing of combs, brushes, hats, barrettes, pillows and bath towels. Minor bruising of the scalp sometimes provides an entry for the microscopic fungus. Children  10 years of age are more susceptible and boys are more so than girls. Ringworm of the scalp is not threatening. Without treatment, however, the hair fall can be extensive, and some children will develop a boggy, tender swelling of the scalp known as a kerion.

alopecia areata

Children’s Alopecia Areata

Alopecia areata is another common form of patchy hair loss in children. The typical story is the sudden appearance of one or more totally bald areas in the scalp. The child with this condition loses hair in circular patches sometimes up to two inches in diameter. The hair at the lines of these patches is loose, but the peach-colored scalp looks and feels normal, without scaling or inflammation. There may be just a few patches of hair loss or a total absence of body hair. Alopecia Areata is not so dangerous, and children who have it are otherwise healthy. Why the hair shadings out from the roots is still a mystery. What is known is that the condition is not contagious, caused by foods, or the result of nervousness, hyperactive disorders, or psychological stress. In 20% of cases, another family member has been affected. Some patients with this condition will also develop a grid-like pitting of the nails. Fortunately, over 80% children with alopecia areata grow new hair within 12 months. Strangely, the new hair can temporarily be white, but eventually the hair returns to its natural color. This is a much higher resolution rate than is seen in adults with the same condition, so the news is satisfaying.

Children’s Traction Alopecia

Traction Alopecia, or physical damage to the hair, is another common cause of hair loss, particularly in girls. The human hair is quite fragile and does not respond well to the many physical and chemical invasions it has to brave in the name of beauty. Constant teasing, fluffing, combing, washing, curling, blow drying, hot combing, straightening and bleaching can do a number on the fragile hairs, causing them to fall out, especially around the hairline and along the front and sides. In adults, this is not as constant a problem, as the hair has grown in strength and quality over several years, but it can act a problem for our little companions who typically have much thinner, fairer and less dense hair. Styles that apply tension to the hair, such as tight ponytails, braiding, barrettes and permanent waving can also damage the hair. However, one should not estimate that hair loss in one’s child is due to pony tails that are too tight. If hair loss is noted, it is imperative that a physician evaluate the child and rule out other causes. Recommended treatment for children’s traction alopecia is to handle the hair gently, as little as possible, and use natural hair styles. The hair will usually return, but regrowth can be slow. Injured hair follicles do not heal quickly and often take 3 or more months before they are back to their growing phase.

Hair Loss: Infectious Agents 1

Some of the infectious agents and infection-related conditions can cause to hair loss. I want to explain some common ones.

1) Ringworm

Surprisingly, ringworm has nothing to do with worms, but is a fungal infection that can found anywhere on the body. If it develops on the scalp, it can cause patches of hair loss and is known to doctors as “tinea capitis.” Ringworm is the same thing as athlete’s foot, and the same kind of fungal infection that can affect the nails too.

Tinea capitis

On the scalp, ringworm usually starts as a small pimple that progressively expands in size, leaving scaly patches of temporary baldness. The fungus gets into the hair follicles in the affected area and these hairs become brittle and break off easily, leaving a bald patch of skin. Affected areas are often itchy, red, and inflamed, with scaly patches that may bubble and ooze. The patches are usually redder around the outside with a more normal skin tone in the center. This may create the appearance of a ring — hence the name, ringworm.

Worldwide, the fungus Microsporum audouinii is a very common cause of ringworm, but increasingly Trichophyton tonsurans can also cause tinea capitis, especially in the US and Latin American countries. Other fungi that may cause tinea capitis include Trichophyton schoenleinii andTrichophyton megninii in Southern Europe and Africa, and Trichophyton violaceum in the Middle East.

The fungus Microsporum gypseum can also sometimes cause tinea capitis. This fungus is common in soil and may be transferred to humans by contact with infected animals. You can also get ringworm from pets that carry the fungus, and cats in particular are common carriers. Ringworm is contagious. It can be passed from one person to the next by direct skin-to-skin contact. You can also catch ringworm through contact with contaminated items such as combs, unwashed clothing, and shower or pool surfaces.

Treatment for ringworm varies depending on the particular fungus involved. Some types of ringworm infection will go away spontaneously and no treatment is given. You should choose some natural treatment.

2) Folliculitis

Folliculitis14

Folliculitis is a term for inflammation of hair follicles. It looks like acne with little rings of inflammation surrounding the opening of a hair follicle. In the early stages of a folliculitis, the hair fiber may still be present, but as the folliculitis progresses the hair often falls out. When folliculitis is severe, inflammation is so intense that it can permanently destroy the hair follicles, leaving little bald patches.

There are non-infectious forms of folliculitis, such as those caused by oils and greases applied to the skin that clog up the hair follicles, but folliculitis is usually due to a bacterial infection. Particularly common is an infection of the hair follicles by Staphylococcus aureus. “Hot tub folliculitis” is caused by Pseudomonas aeruginosa which grows in inadequately chlorinated water

HOW DOES HAIR GROW?

Hair is composed of Keratin, a special protein that also produces our fingernails and toenails the nails and forms the protective outer layer of our skin. Each strand of hair consists of three concentric layers, the cuticle, the cortex and the medulla.Resim

The outer layer is called the cuticle and is thin and colorless, its job is to protect the thicker cortex which contains the melanin. Melanin is responsible for the color of your hair and the actual color depends on what kind of melanin you have . There are two kinds, eumelanin which creates brown or black hair, and pheomelanin which makes hair appear red. Blonde hair is a result of very low amounts of melanin, the shade of the blonde again depends upon which type of melanin you have. Gray hair is a result of a lack of melanin which is often caused by age but can also be caused by stress and illness.

The innermost layer of hair is called the medulla and reflects light giving hair the various color tones it has. That’s why hair color looks a lot different in sunlight than it does in the shade.

Whether you have straight or curly hair depends on the shape of the cortex. If the cross section of the cortex is round you will have straight hair, if the cortex is oval shaped you will have curly or wavy hair.

The physical thickness and length of hair depends on what type of hair it is. Vellus hair is the fine fuzz type of hair that’s often called peach fuzz. Its very fine and colorless and often almost invisible to the naked eye.

Hair that is dark and very visible is known as Terminal hair. Terminal hair is the hair that we refer to when talk about hair. Whether a hair is a fine vellus hair or a thick dark hair depends entirely on the follicle that is producing the hair. In balding men thick terminal hair is often replaced by fine vellus hair. This is a result of the hair producing equipment, the follicle, suffering physical damage and being unable to produce terminal hair.

The average Caucasian person has 5 million hairs of which 100,000 – 150,000 are on the head. Blondes not only have more fun, they also have more hair, about 140,000 more than average, Brunettes have slightly higher than average hair about 105,000 hairs, and redheads have a little less than average about 90,000 hairs.

Hair grows in Resima cycle that consists of three phases: Anagen, Catagen and Telogen

Anagen – This is the growth phase that lasts between two and eight years. During the anagen phase the growth cells in the papilla rapidly divide and produce the hair shaft which becomes keratinized as it pushes up and out of the follicle into the pore. At the same time, the follicle grows down into the deeper levels of the dermis (skin) to get nourishment. People who have long anagen growth rates are able to grow very long hair and others have short growth phases and cannot grow very long hair. Hair grows at a rate of about a ½ inch per month, so a hair left uncut will grow to a length of between 12 inches and 48 inches.

Catagen – The Anagen phase is followed by a brief two to four week Catagen phase or transitional phase. This is part of a renewal process where the follicle is literally

What vitamins are good for hair loss?

If your part is expanding or the thickness of your ponytail is shrinking, you’re likely thinking (okay, panicking) that your hair is falling out, but that’s not always the case; thinning may be the culprit. “The diameter of the hair shaft diminishes as we get older,” explains Zoe Draelos, M.D., clinical associate professor of dermatology at Wake Forest University School of Medicine. That means you may have the same number of follicles, but thinner individual strands will make it look like there’s less volume. (They’re also more prone to break, and since hair growth slows as you age, the damage becomes more obvious.) c_hair1               Even if you do see extra hairs in your brush or in the shower drain, you don’t necessarily need to worry. Although 40 percent of women experience some hair loss by menopause, shedding around 100 strands a day is normal, reports Paul M. Friedman, M.D., clinical assistant professor of dermatology at the University of Texas Medical School at Houston. If you seem to be losing more, see your doctor — the problem could be related to declining estrogen levels, an iron deficiency, or stress. Once these problems have been ruled out, a 2 percent minoxidil solution (available over the counter as Rogaine) is an option. “It’s the only clinically proven, FDA-approved treatment for female pattern baldness,” says Dr. Draelos. In the meantime, although you can’t permanently restore heft to the individual strands, there are plenty of ways to boost overall volume. Start with a volumizing shampoo; look for ingredients like rice or wheat proteins, which thicken strands.
