Since the hair entering the catagen and the new growth phase are constantly in a dynamic balance, the normal number of hairs can be maintained. Pathological alopecia refers to abnormal or excessive hair loss, which has many causes.


What are the causes of hair loss and baldness?

    1. Genetics. Hair loss is also hereditary. Generally, males are dominantly inherited and may be familial baldness due to family genetics.

     2. Seborrheic alopecia. It may be that the secretion of male hormones in the body is too strong, the face, back or chest secretes too much oil, the pores are blocked by oil, and the nutrient supply is blocked, which eventually manifests as baldness, thinning or dry hair, and dandruff.

    3. Hormonal influence. It may be the hormone secretion problem in the body, or the mental pressure of contemporary people is too high. Heavy mental blows, malnutrition, diseases, etc. can also cause hair loss and baldness.

    4. Pathologically caused hair loss. Mainly because viruses and bacteria damage cells, inhibit their normal division, and put hair follicles in a state of shock, resulting in hair loss, such as acute infectious diseases, long-term use of certain drugs, etc.

    5. Chemical hair loss. Exposure to harmful chemicals that cause damage to scalp tissue and hair follicle cells.

    6. Physical hair loss. Hair loss is indirectly caused by air pollution or harmful radiation.

So how can we reduce the risk of hair loss?


    1. Wash And Comb Your Hair Frequently


    Our scalp has many hair follicles, which secrete a lot of oil and dirt every day. We should choose a suitable and healthy shampoo to keep the scalp clean at all times, especially for those who sweat a lot. Moreover, there are many acupoints on the scalp. Frequent brushing or frequent massaging of the scalp can help strengthen the hair roots and facilitate hair growth.

Therefore, usually eat as light as possible, should eat more fruits, vegetables, and grains. If there is a phenomenon of hair loss, you can eat some protein-rich foods, such as fish, beans, and milk, these foods help hair growth.


    3. Get Enough Sleep


    The main reason for hair loss in young people is staying up late. Staying up late will cause great damage to liver and kidney functions, affect the detoxification of the kidneys, and cause insufficient hair nutrition supply, resulting in hair loss. So be sure to get enough sleep and refuse to stay up late.
