• The dreaded bald spot. Perhaps the most stereotypical of all hair loss conditions. It’s often depicted in popular culture as the most common form baldness and a sign of the onset of middle-age.This is, in many ways, an unfair characterisation. Bald spots seem severe and, in many instances, they are. But, more often than not, they are treatable, especially if addressed early.

    The truth is that bald spots are an effective warning sign – wake-up call even – for men to take their hair and its care more seriously. Your hair might not be around forever, especially if it’s not taken care of, and treated like the organ it is.

    What Is A Bald Spot?

    A bald spot is a small area – often circular or ‘spot’ shaped, although it can manifest itself in more unusual forms – of total hair baldness on the scalp or elsewhere. In other words, the hair follicles underneath that area refuse to grow hair. Although it can occur in women, it is more common and noticeable when it affects men.

    Men who develop bald spots, perhaps in part due to the associations with bald spots from negative portrayals in culture, typically feel a host of negative emotions.

    These can include:

    • Sadness and even depression at the thought of more hair loss
    • Feeling self-conscious about their age, due to the (incorrect) associations between hair loss and ageing
    • Low self-esteem about their physical appearance, and how their bald spot may change perceptions of them

    Causes of Bald Spots

    There are many obvious, and some not so obvious, causes for the sudden or gradual onset of bald spots.

    Far-and-away the most common form of bald spot comes from alopecia areata. Thankfully, it’s also one of the most treatable and least severe forms of alopecia. Ironically, another term for alopecia areata is spot baldness.

    There’s a whole host of reasons as to why a man might contract alopecia areata. Some of these can be prevented, others are, unfortunately, down to predisposition.

    These causes include:

    • Genetic predisposition: almost all men are, to a certain extent, predisposed to some level of hair loss.
    • Hormonal imbalances: due to emotional factors such as high levels of stress, men can experience hormonal imbalances, which can lead to development and aggravation of alopecia areata

Other Treatments and Products For Hair Restoration

Serenoa blocks the production of this hormone, so your follicles will continue to grow hair and offset the loss. We include Serenoa in our hair and scalp fitness product, and the range is topped off by an Advanced Laser Helmet and an AHS-FP Antioxidant.
  • Stem Cell Hair Technology Factors: Our ‘Growth Factors’ lock into your follicles to reactivate any dormant follicles, expel any blocking oils and create an environment for hair to push through and grow again.

Many men solemnly accept hair loss – in some form or another – as a near-certain inevitability at some point in their lives.

The truth is, everyone, not just men needs to confront the fact that we’re all very likely to experience a type of hair loss condition in our lives.

For women, this is extremely difficult. Unlike bald men, which society accepts as perfectly normal, and sometimes even positive, bald women are looked down on.

Although heads of hair are tied to all human identities, it’s seen as especially important for women. Throughout history, long hair – typified by fairy-tales such as Rapunzel – has come to be represented as one of the most female traits.

It’s no wonder that when women begin to lose their hair, they can sometimes feel as though they’re losing much more.

Causes of Female Hair Loss

There are just as many causes for female hair loss as there are for male hair loss. Although men and women share many causers in common; there are also several conditions unique to women, both in their causes and in the ways that they affect.

Some of the most common hair loss causes that women share with men include:

  • All of the most common forms of alopecia; such as alopecia areata, alopecia totalis and alopecia universalis
  • Poor lifestyle factors such as excessive drinking and smoking, and a lack of adequate nutrition, hygiene and exercise
  • The lack or regular, quality, long-lasting sleep also affects both men and women’s chances of losing their hair

Here are some causes that are unique to women:

  • The imbalance of female-specific hormones, such as estrogen can disrupt hair growth
  • Additionally, women undergoing the hormonal changes of menopause can frequently lose hair as a side-effect
  • During pregnancy and just after child birth, women experience extreme changes and variance both in the growth and thickness of their hair

Consequences of Female Hair Loss

The effects—both psychological and physiological —of female hair loss can be pronounced. The cosmetic, aesthetic consequences of female hair loss can lead to some intensely negative emotions in women – which will only compound and worsen their hair loss, as well as their likelihood of recovery.

Women losing their hair typically feel:

  • Sadness, in some cases even symptoms of depression
  • Shame and embarrassment, feelings of abnormality
  • A loss of self-esteem and confidence, especially with regards to personal and professional relationships

The period shortly after pregnancy is fraught with the nervousness and stress of taking care of a newborn child. Unfortunately, it’s also one of the times in which women are likeliest to experience some form of hair loss.

At best, that increases the stress of new parenthood; but at worst, it can lead to a variety of negative consequences including the onset of postpartum depression and the gradual worsening of hair loss.

What Is Postpartum Hair Loss?

Postpartum hair loss is classified as the loss of hair in a woman shortly after she gives birth to a child.

The rate and extent to which hair is lost when postpartum hair loss comes as a shock to many women.

This is because:

  • Society has associated womanhood with hair, so losing it can threaten a new mother’s sense of femininity
  • The period following childbirth is a very stressful one; so if a woman begins to lose her hair she may misdiagnose her postpartum hair loss as something more extreme, such as alopecia
  • During pregnancy, a woman’s hair is far thicker and fuller than usual. Upon childbirth and at the onset of postpartum hair loss, many women become confused by the sudden loss of thickness that they had grown accustomed to

What Are The Causes Of Postpartum Hair Loss?

Typically, women begin to notice postpartum hair loss around three months after giving birth. The causes are largely hormonal.

There are roughly two phases of hair growth. The first, anagen, is a growth phase; while the second, telogen, is a resting phase. During pregnancy, women receive far more growth hormones than usual, which leads to a far greater amount of hair than normal.

The inverse happens following childbirth. Hormonal changes are that far more hairs than usual enter the resting phase; die and fall off the scalp.

Treatment Methods

What’s worth noting is that this happens to almost every new mother. In many instances, postpartum hair loss is a perfectly natural and normal part of motherhood; and shouldn’t be met with much concern.

Having said that, in certain women, postpartum hair loss can last for far longer than usual, with far more dramatic and negative consequences than in other women.

If your postpartum hair loss is still ongoing by the time your baby has reached twelve months old, that’s a good indicator that it’s time to consult a hair-care professional.
