Hair Loss Stages

In order to understand hair loss or extensive hair fall, it is important to understand how hair grows and there are three main stages to the same: how hair grows and there are three main stages to the same:


This is the active growth phase, wherein the root of the hair is constantly dividing. In this phase the hair is growing quite fast and this phase lasts for anywhere between two to seven years.


This is the shortest of the three phases and is the time when the active growth period comes to an end. Lasting about two to three weeks, this is the time when the club hair is formed – the lower part of the hair, which was till now attached to the follicle, now attaches to the hair shaft.


Commonly known as the resting phase, the hair does not grow, but it does fall. The condition wherein the hair falls is also known as telogen effluvium and when this condition goes out of control, a person could end up bald.

Here is how hair fall turns into baldness

As mentioned before, losing a few hair a day is normal, but when you start noticing hair everywhere, including your towel, pillow and shoulders, you know that it is snowballing into something much more serious or moving you towards balness treatment. Balding can be a hereditary condition or it could be an indication of certain types of illnesses.

Here are some of the most common causes of hair loss:

  • Hypothyroidism
  • Chemical injuries such as acid burns or physical trauma such as an accident or surgery
  • Certain genetic disorders
  • Infectious diseases such as herpes, leprosy and tuberculosis
  • Skin diseases such as Lichen Planers and DLE

Types Of Hair Loss in Men

There are actually categories to hair loss and some of the most prominent ones include

  • Androgenetic Alopecia – More commonly known as male pattern baldness, androgenetic alopecia is actually much more common than people might think. The balding will start from the sides and slowly progress towards the back of the head. When you see a horseshoe shaped bald area in men, it is this very condition. The condition is considered to be genetic and the hair follicles are found to be extremely sensitive to dihydrotestosterone or DHT. It is only the hair that is resistant to DHT that continues to stand strong and does not fall out. The falling out of hair will be gradual and the growth will be very slow or non-existent. The same condition can also affect women, and in them too, the cause is mostly genetic. However, complete bald patches are rare in women, and for them the condition will present more in the form of a gradual thinning.
  • Alopecia Areata – An autoimmune condition, this disorder can cause either small bald patches or even complete loss of body hair, depending on the severity of the condition. There are actually three sub divisions in this condition, namely alopecia areata monolocularis, alopecia totalis and alopecia areata universalis. While in certain cases, the condition rectifies on its own, there are also cases, where the person has gone completely hairless and remained the way.
  • Cicatricial or Scarring Alopecia –In this condition, the hair follicles are destroyed from within and what makes this condition even more complicated is the fact that it is not easy to detect. The condition is quite rare and is not gender specific.
  • Traction Alopecia – There are many men and women who feel that when their hair is pulled back, it looks good. There are those who go for tight weaves or braid their hair really tightly. While these hair styles might look good, over a period of time, they will make the hair follicles weak, making them more susceptible to breakage. If the habit continues, it will make the hair loss permanent.
  • Trichotillomania – This is actually a medical condition, in which the person constantly pulls out their hair. Studies have shown that the condition accelerates when the person is under some kind of stress or is very nervous or anxious. Bald patches will start to appear, wherever the hair has been pulled out, but in most cases the hair does grow back, especially if the habit is kept under control.

Hair Loss Treatment

There are basically two ways of treating hair loss – surgical and nonsurgical. If the hair loss is not extensive or the person is really not comfortable about getting surgery, then there are numerous non-surgical methods of treating hair loss. This would include hair pieces, hair extensions, hair growth serums and therapies such as laser and Mesotherapy.
However, if the hair loss is more extensive and there are obvious bald patches, then surgical methods might be the best choice. The two of the most commonly used surgical methods are FUT or follicular unit transplant or FUE or follicular unit extraction. The results of both these methods are permanent and if done by an experienced professional, the recuperation time is minimal and the results completely natural.
