Early stages of hair loss – Your hair is your ‘crowning glory’. No doubt you are so possessive about those lovely locks and do a lot of things to make sure you don’t loose the luster of their beauty assets. If life was a fairy tale every woman would have been the “Rapunzel”, but unfortunately the truth is that most women lose their lustrous hair at some point of time in life. So here are a few things on when it’s time to know your hair is going down the drain. The most fragile age when women are most likely to go through this unfortunate stage is the 30s. It’s rather shocking, but these days even girls as young as 20 experience severe hair fall. But the actual thinning of hair becomes conspicuous around the age of 40, and after menopause it becomes obvious. But research shows almost fifty per cent of women experience some degree of hair thinning around the age of 50.
Generally hair losses are categories in two kinds on the basis of the cause: Temporary, (also known as telogen, transient or non genetic) and permanent (genetic hair loss or androgenetic alopecia). Early stages of hair thinning could be due to reasons such as hormonal imbalance, nutrition, pregnancy, medication, nervous tension or stress. But the most important question is what is the genuine cause of hair loss and when the bells should start ringing in your heads. Prevention is certainly better than cure and you should immediately note the slightest change in your normal pattern of hair fall.
