Steps to Follow in the Event of Excessive Hair Loss

What to do in case of excessive hair loss

Alopecia, in both men and women, can appear at any time. However, it must be taken into account that alopecia can be caused by various factors, so it cannot be generalised when drawing conclusions about why it is happening, either to a greater or lesser extent.

It is true that, during the months of October and November, it is very common to have friends, family or work colleagues around us who show their surprise and concern when they detect that their hair falls out more than usual, or even suffer from this situation ourselves.

Therefore, below we indicate what are the steps to follow in case of detecting excessive hair loss:

Do not be alarmed

Surely you have verified that the hair falls to a greater or lesser extent throughout the year and, normally, a greater volume of hair loss is experienced with the changes of season. This is known as seasonal fall and it is a reality that affects both men and women. The usual thing is to notice a greater loss of hair in spring and autumn, and in particular, at the beginning of the changes of season.

The name by which this phenomenon is known is seasonal telogen effluvium, which affects most of the population due to the photoperiod, through which light alters our hormones, and these, in turn, our hair.

Seasonal telogen effluvium should not be a cause for alarm, since as a general rule, hair that falls out grows back, and there must be a balance between what is lost and what is born.

Do not check information on your own

Although it is something that society is used to doing, it is recommended to avoid the consumption of information from the Internet and, therefore, avoid any type of pattern that is between its lines. It should not be forgotten that we are facing a medical problem, not only an aesthetic one, and that alopecia must be treated in a personalised way by a professional.

See a specialist immediately

In the case of experiencing chronic hair loss, it is advisable to go to a specialist to assess the particular case and organize a regenerative treatment plan for the patient.

At Dr. Panno’s Hair Graft Clinic, by appointment, we offer a free first informative consultation to attend to the patient and address his particular alopecia problem.

Be responsible with the treatment

Once the specialist has determined which is the best treatment to combat the patient’s alopecia, it will be the responsibility of the patient to comply with all the indications and attend the periodic consultations that are determined by the clinic.

These reviews will serve to evaluate how the indicated hair regeneration treatment is behaving, analyse its effectiveness and assess any changes to it.

Follow healthy habits in your day to day

Hair health is directly related to the health of our body in general. Therefore, a balanced and healthy diet together with good quality products are key to having well-nourished and shiny hair. When choosing foods, opt for those that are high in Vitamin B6, protein, folic acid, and essential fatty acids. Add to the weekly menu: tuna, salmon, almonds, bananas, spinach, eggs, tomatoes or legumes.

In addition, it will be essential to consume an abundant amount of water per day (2 liters minimum) and practice physical exercise.
