Losing 50 to 100 hair strands is not a cause for concern, as this is a normal case, but, when the hair fall goes beyond this, it means there is something wrong. Hair is made up of protein and consists of 2 elements, namely hair shaft, that is underneath the scalp and root which is responsible for the growth of a hair strand. Nowadays, hair loss has become a common problem for people of all ages. For adolescents, it is the deficiency of nutrients and vitamins that leads to hair fall. Besides this, there can be other reasons as well like infection, medication and genetics.
In medical terms, the causes of hair loss can be divided into two categories. Non-Cicatricial Alopecia and Cicatricial Alopecia. The first one is normally seen in infants or new borns. It involves intake of medicines or chemicals like anti-cancer drugs and high doses of vitamin A. Self-induced physical trauma, compulsive scratching of scalp, alopecia areata or patchy loss of hair, telogen effluvium or diffused hair loss, infections and hormonal disturbances form part of Non-Cicatricial Alopecia. Besides this, straightening, blow drying, radiotherapy and pulling of hair are also some of the causes.
Cicatricial Alopecia implies damage to the underlying skin. It involves physical trauma, infectious diseases like TB, leprosy, chemical injury, skin diseases like DLE and skin cancers, unusual genetic disorders, male baldness or any other causes.
