Frequently Asked Hair Loss Questions

If you just started losing your hair you will have many questions about what causes hair loss and what products and treatments work. This list of frequently asked questions will address most, if not all, questions about hair loss.

Learn about hair and how it grows

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.

Find out what causes hair loss

It is normal to lose between 50-100 hairs a day, this is part of the hair renewal process. However most people suffer from excessive hair loss at one time in their life. There are many reasons for this including medication, radiation, chemotherapy, exposure to chemicals, hormonal and nutritional factors, thyroid disease, generalized or local skin disease, and stress.

 

Learn about what causes hair to shed

This is one of the most commonly asked hair loss question and without doubt the most perplexing for the hair loss sufferer. Why does using a product that is supposed to grow hair actually cause more hair loss?

 

Classify the severity of your hair loss

In order to classify the severity of hair loss, doctors created a series of charts categorizing various stages of hair loss. The charts are very useful when describing your hair loss to someone. The are known as the Norwood-Hamilton scale for men's hair loss and the Ludwig scale for women's hair loss.
