What causes thinning hair?

Hair thinning refers to a gradual reduction in hair density, making the scalp more visible. It’s a common condition that can affect both men and women and is different from complete hair loss or baldness. It is often characterised by a reduction in hair volume, diameter, and overall coverage on the scalp.

Causes of Thinning Hair:

  1. Genetics: Hereditary hair thinning, also known as androgenetic alopecia, is the most common cause. This condition can affect both men (male pattern baldness) and women (female pattern hair loss).
  2. Hormonal Changes: Hormonal imbalances, such as those occurring during pregnancy, menopause, or due to thyroid problems, can lead to hair shedding.
  3. Medical Conditions: Conditions like alopecia areata, scalp infections, and other skin disorders can contribute to hair thinning.
  4. Medications: Certain medications, including those for cancer, arthritis, depression, heart problems, and high blood pressure, can cause hair thinning as a side effect.
  5. Nutritional Deficiencies: A lack of essential nutrients like vitamins (especially vitamin D and B vitamins), iron, and protein can weaken hair and lead to reduced hair volume.
  6. Stress: Physical or emotional stress can trigger temporary hair thinning, known as telogen effluvium, where hair prematurely enters the shedding phase.
  7. Hair Care Practices: Overuse of harsh hair treatments, frequent use of heat styling tools, tight hairstyles, and excessive chemical exposure can damage hair and cause it to thin.
  8. Ageing: As people age, hair naturally becomes finer and less dense, which can contribute to thinning.

Understanding the underlying cause of hair shedding is crucial for determining the most effective treatment approach.

Can you restore thinning hair?

Restoring thinning hair can be possible, depending on the underlying cause. Here are several methods that can help restore decreased hair density:

Medical Treatments

Topical treatments like Minoxidil, prescription medications such as Finasteride and Spironolactone, and hair transplant surgery (FUT and FUE) can all help restore thinning hair.

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy and Microneedling

PRP Therapy: This involves drawing a small amount of the patient’s blood, processing it to concentrate the platelets, and injecting it into the scalp. The growth factors in PRP can stimulate hair growth and improve hair thickness.

Microneedling: Often used in conjunction with PRP, microneedling involves using fine needles to create tiny punctures in the scalp, which can enhance the absorption of PRP and other topical treatments, promoting hair growth and improving scalp health.

Diet and Supplements

Ensuring a diet rich in vitamins and minerals that support hair health, such as biotin, vitamin D, iron, and zinc, can be beneficial. Supplements can be used if dietary intake is insufficient.

Hair Care Practices

Use gentle shampoos and conditioners that promote scalp health.
Avoid excessive use of heat styling tools and harsh chemical treatments.
Practice gentle hair handling techniques to reduce breakage.

Alternative Therapies

Some people find success with treatments like acupuncture or herbal remedies, though scientific evidence supporting their efficacy is limited.

Lifestyle Changes

Reducing stress through relaxation techniques such as yoga, meditation, or regular exercise can help manage hair shedding caused by stress.

It’s important to consult with a dermatologist or a healthcare provider to determine the most appropriate treatment based on the cause of hair thinning. Early intervention can often yield better results in restoring hair growth.

How long does it take to see results from thinning hair treatments?

The timeframe for seeing results can vary depending on the individual and the type of treatment used. Some patients may see improvements within a few weeks, while others may take several months to see significant results.

Are the treatments painful?

Are the treatments safe?
