This condition is still being researched, but the hormone influences in hereditary hair loss in females are suspected to be different from those in males. Some of the less common causes of hair loss, which are reversible with treatment, include thyroid disease, iron deficiency, high fever, surgery or general anaesthesia, “crash diets”, childbirth and certain medications. There are also certain dermatologic scalp disorders that can result in temporary or permanent hair loss, such as Lupus, Lichen Planopilaris, and Alopecia Areata.

  • Female pattern baldness is the most common form of hair loss. This condition is genetically linked and can be inherited from both parents — this condition is known as Androgenic Alopecia. Our hair integration program is the perfect solution for this type of hair loss.
  • Trichotillomania is a compulsion to pull or pluck hair often resulting in permanent damage to the hair leaving bald/thin patches in the plucked site. It is predominantly a female condition that affects around 2 — 4% of the population.
  • Alopecia Areata is due to an auto-immune response in which the body forms white cells that attack the hair follicles. Inflammation of the hair follicles and surrounding hair structures sets in, which causes hair follicles to retreat into deeper layers of the skin. These follicles are then shut off from a flowing nutrient supply and eventually starve, becoming dormant, which causes the hair to shed.
