FAQ’s About Hair Loss
Who is affected by Alopecia Areata?
Men and women of all ages and races are affected by Alopecia Areata. Most people usually start experiencing the first symptoms at a very young age. It’s not life-threatening, however, most people do experience a major psychological impact as a result of the disease. People suffering the consequences of Alopecia Areata are still very capable of living happy, healthy and fulfilling lives. There is absolutely no reason the condition should prevent you from living the life you want and deserve.

What are the causes of Alopecia Areata?
Alopecia Areata occurs when inflammation develops around the hair roots, which then become inactive and diminish in size. The scientific community has no answer for what causes this inflammation. However, the cause is most likely more complicated than a simple deficiency of vitamins and other micronutrients, hair care methods or external damage. What causes Alopecia is neither any fungal bacterial or viral infection and thus it cannot be passed on to any other person. Many people believe the condition to be stress-related, but there is no significant scientific evidence that supports this.
Is Alopecia a lifelong disease?
Unfortunately, Alopecia Areata is an in-curable condition. There are different forms of Alopecia, one of them, Alopecia Totalis, is a condition involving complete loss of all the hair on the scalp. It makes up for roughly 20 percent of all people suffering from the disease. Those who suffer from Alopecia Totalis also have a greater tendency for the symptoms to occur again.
Can I still do sports?
Absolutely. The main reason of finding your perfect hair restoration solution is for you to be able to live your live just as you’d like. You should never have to sacrifice a single thing that you love. No matter your sport or activity of choice, you will be able to keep doing it just like always.
Will my hair grow back?
Most people suffering from Alopecia Areata experience some extent of hair re-growth. Because the growing cells that supply the hair follicle remain active, it’s still possible for the hair to regrow and the possibility of complete re-growth remains.
There’s also a possibility for the symptoms to fade or reoccur at any point in time. There’s no telling exactly how Alopecia Areata will affect you, which makes the condition very unpredictable and difficult to manage. You might only lose a single patch of hair and then experience a full re-growth without further recurrence. Although not very common, you may lose all your body hair with no further re-growth. Experiencing hair loss followed by re-growth over the span of many years is common. Your re-grown hair can be of any colour and texture, from thin, downy white hair, to hair indistinguishable from your original hair.

What if I’ve left it too late?
It’s never too late to take positive action … especially when you consider you have approximately 100,000 hair follicles on your head and they grow roughly one centimetre each month.
Now I know you may be thinking that some of these little babies may have already shut down. That could be true, but what if you could stop any more from going the same way?
Wouldn’t that be better than watching your hair getting thinner and thinner?
Wouldn’t that be better than waiting for that crippling comment from a dear friend, “what happened to your hair? You used to have such a great …”
You get the picture!

Can my thin hair grow back?
To maximise the possibility of your hair growing back, it is important to do everything you can to reduce the stress in your life. Stress is actually a big contributing factor to thinning hair. If stress is the only factor, the hair loss is normally temporary and will grow back once the stress you experience has subsided. For many people, stress can also speed up other forms of hair loss like male pattern baldness.
How many phases exist in hair growth?
Naturally, hair grows in three phases: catagen, telogen and anagen. Anagen is the phase in which the hair is actively growing, while catagen is the relatively short phase of the natural hair cycle in which hairs start to break down. Telogen is the resting phase. The hairs that fall off daily are generally in the resting or late phase of the hair cycle.

Apart from any underlying causes (medical treatments, undetected diabetes or lupus); one of the biggest problems in maintaining a head full of rich hair is scalp infections.

Why does hair loss happen, and can it be stopped?
Hair loss in men is caused by DHT blocking the hair follicles. This causes the hair to become finer as it grows. It then falls out when there is no room left in the follicle for the hair to exit through. Not all men lose their hair, but it is common and is normally caused by either the mother’s or the father’s genes. You can’t stop the progression of hair loss once it starts, but you can certainly slow it down. Natural regrowth treatments, or non-surgical grafting, have been shown successful. Female hair loss is mostly caused by a hormonal imbalance, which can be diagnosed as female pattern thinning.
