Hair loss in women and men - alopecia

Hair loss is certainly a problem for a large part of the population around the world. Official statistics show us the fact that hair loss in men is present up to 70%, and alopecia in women occurs in only 30%.

Hair Loss Causes

Although official medicine does not have a single answer to the question why people are losing their hair, doctors agree that in most of the cause is alopecia:
  • hereditary factor-genetics
  • Stress and anxiety 
  • anaemia
  • thyroid disease
  • hormonal disorders
  • fungus
  • Menopause

Hair loss in women; Causes

Hair loss in women fortunately does not end with total baldness, which occurs in men. The most common cause of alopecia is in the first place stress anaemia, menopause or taking certain medications or adverse reactions to certain health ailments. Condition of hair loss cannot be accepted lightly but the general recommendation is to consult your doctor and dermatologist at the time, to find the cause and begin therapy.

Hair loss after giving birth

Hair loss is a disadvantage that accompanies many young mothers and it is not rare for these and many other circumstances to cause depression. In women who before had slightly thinner hair, the problem is more visible and more pronounced. Re-establishing regular menstruation and menstrual cycle, hair will start to grow again and return to the normal. First improvements are visible after 2 to 3 months.

Baldness in men

In contrast to the fairer sex, hair loss in men is most often associated with genes and hormones. Almost half the male population over the age of 50 have at least initial signs of baldness. Already in their early twenties they can occur and the first signs of alopecia, is something lighter pigment and thin hair, diluted scalp that over the years progresses to complete baldness.

Nutrition for hair growth in children

Alopecia in children is usually manifested as loss of hair in circles or stamps. It occurs in young population and in 60% of cases in people under 20 years of age. It is an autoimmune disease that is not well understood and is caused by many factors. On the development of the disease in many cases affects emotional stress, low immunity and the emergence of autoimmunity and genetic predispositions. Sometimes the disease combines with other diseases: atopic dermatitis, vitiligo, Hashimoto syndrome, inflammatory bowel disease, which also belongs to the autoimmune diseases. Your child is required to be taken to a dermatologist to determine the correct diagnosis and treatment.


The attitude of doctors and official medicine is that alopecia can be mitigated but not completely cure. How we are daily "bombed" by commercials that offer a wide variety of products for hair loss appears that show that this problem is easily solved. Always consult with a doctor before use. Instant solutions do not exist. I has been proven that two medications are good against alopecia: Monoxide and Propecia. Also recommended is nizoral shampoo, Marbo shampoo and Vichy ampoules against hair loss. NOTE: do not buy products for hair loss without prior consultation with a professional.

Alternative medicine does not offer a single unique magic cure for hair loss, but requires patience and perseverance in every patient. As we cannot completely go bald for in day, we are not able to restore hair for a short time. The therapy usually last several months.

There is scientific evidence that the mixture of essential oils (rosemary, lavender, cedar and thyme and grapefruit seeds and vegetable oils of jojoba) were successful in 44% of cases in the treatment of alopecia instead of with treatment with ordinary water. It was a blind study with two groups. Essential oils need to be used once a day to massage the scalp.
