Hair Loss Facts

It seems almost surreal that over to 80 million American men and women are affected by hair loss.

Hair loss is not only genetic; it can also be brought on by a number of factors of our own doing.

Doctors specializing in hair loss will often ask the following questions of their patients:

What's a typical day in your diet? Are you taking any medications (including vitamins)? What's your family history of hair loss? Have you been afflicted with a recent illness? What are your daily hair care habits?

For both men and women hair is simply our crowning glory. Society (the world over) places a huge deal of social and cultural importance on hair (length, health and thickness) and hairstyles.

Most of us never miss our hair, until we start loosing it. That's usually when we enter a mad race to find solutions and remedies to regain our crowning glory. Sadly, many conditions such as diseases, heavy amounts of stress, hormonal imbalance and improper hair care result in excessive hair loss.

A healthy scalp will produce about one-half inch of hair grows per month (some lucky individuals can see up to one inch of hair growth per month).

Normal hair shedding should not be of concern or alarm, as we typically loose 50 to 100 hairs per day. However, if you notice heavier hair loss or worst if you notice bald spots, it's best to consult your dermatologist.

Your hair loss may have started with a few extra hairs in the sink or in your comb, but when heavy hair loss should be of concern and should be treated immediately.

There is a parade of drugstore cures to treat thinning hair and baldness at your local pharmacy, but the only true way to restore your hairline is to seek treatment from a physician.


Board-certified physicians trained in hair restoration surgery (a.k.a. dermatologic surgeons) are uniquely qualified to diagnose the cause of hair loss and recommend a treatment plan.

Hair loss can be treated. The sooner you contact a qualified doctor, the sooner you'll be able to restore your mane.

Remember that hair restoration procedures greatly depend on the physician's skill and artistry. Therefore, it's very important to see a dermatologic surgeon with training and experience in this area.
