Causes of Baldness and Remedies

Baldness is a common problem in different parts of the world. There are different reasons of hair fall in men and women. Sometimes hair is lost due to genetic reasons, otherwise high blood pressure, cholesterol, etc., effect the hair. The article talks about reasons of baldness and the possible remedies and solutions.

Many sections of the people all across the world are bald headed. In scientific terms it is called androgenic alopecia.

The process for baldness in the head takes time. In case of men hair recedes from the lateral sides of the forehead. At one point of time the head becomes completely bald.

The causes for baldness are many. Sometimes baldness is caused due to genetic reasons. It is more common in case of men than women. A powerful sex hormone DHT is responsible for causing baldness.

Certain medications for blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease and cholesterol sometimes causes baldness. Steroids and acne medications are also responsible for baldness. Poor nutrition, very negligible food intake, lack of minerals, vitamins, proteins in the diet also causes baldness.

Beside there are other reasons like autoimmune disorders called alopecia areata, alopecia totalis, radiation to the scalp, etc. Skin outgrowths and tumours can also initially result in hairloss followed by baldness altogether. All these indications are less in women, but even then more than 30 million women are bald headed in entire USA.

There are different remedies in case of baldness. The best one includes hair transplantation. It is very costly process. A Japanese dermatologist, Dr. Okuda started the process. The surgeon makes the patient unconscious and then takes away the hair from the healthy part of the head and transplants them on the bald portion. Initially all the hairs fall off. Then they regrow.

Many people consume immunosuppressants to prevent baldness. In certain cases they work too.

Cleansers and moisturizers are used in certain cases to open the hair follicles and enable hair growth. But one thing is very obvious. If the natural hair is lost by baldness, whatever hair grows that cannot have the same effect as the original hair.

People all over the world use wigs and false hairs to cover the bald heads. But that too can be identified. In USA, some of the wigs cost more than 1000$ so they are also expensive.

Human beings are also subjected to the weather of different places. In cold weather high levels of snowfalls are very bad for hair and people become bald due to those reasons. Sometimes the poor standard of water that is applied on the hair results in hair loss. Water full of chlorine and iron are very bad for hair. Human beings should apply mustard oil or coconut oil on the head and have good nutrition habit to prevent hairloss and baldness.
