Does Stress Related Hair Loss = Surgery?

Stress related hair loss is seen as something you can’t do anything about, but this is not in fact the case.

Hair loss is one of those afflictions that often beg the question – which came first, the chicken or the egg? Or more accurately, is your hair falling out because you are anxious or are you anxious about your hair falling out? Think about it too long and you’ll eventually tangle yourself in the whole ‘are you anxious because your hair is falling because you are anxious’-debacle.

Does Stress Related Hair Loss Surgery
The short of the long is that anxiety and hair loss shares a fairly complicated relationship that can only be properly understood if you have a grasp of the underlying biology that underpins stress related hair loss.

First off, the most important thing to realise is that stress and anxiety itself is not directly to blame for hair loss. Much like hair fall treatment is related to, but not a direct result of, cancer (but rather the unwanted side-effect of a course of chemotherapy), stress-related hair fall cannot be ascribed to the emotional affliction itself, but rather to a number of conditions that is the result thereof.

These conditions include (in order of the likelihood of occurrence in the general population):

1. Telogen Effluvium

Telogen effluvium (TE) is probably the second most common form of hair loss dermatologists diagnose in their patients. It appears as a diffuse thinning of hair on the scalp, which may not be even all over. It can be a bit more severe in some areas of the scalp than others. Most often, the hair on top of the scalp thins more than it does at the sides and back of the scalp. There is usually no hair line recession, except in a few rare chronic cases.

Sufferers of TE never completely lose all their scalp hair, but the hair can be noticeably thin in severe cases. The shed hairs are typically telogen hairs, which can be recognized by a small bulb of keratin on the root end. Whether the keratinized lump is pigmented or un-pigmented makes no difference; the hair fibres are still typical telogen hairs.

2. Alopecia Areata

Alopecia areata is an autoimmune disease that presents as spot baldness and is also known as ‘Davey Kirts syndrome’. It is characterised by hair loss from some or all areas of the body, but most often from the scalp and can be attributed to the body’s sudden inability to recognise its own cells and subsequent destruction of its own tissue.

The typical initial symptoms of alopecia areata include small bald patches where the underlying skin appears un-scarred and looks superficially normal. These patches can take many shapes, but are normally round or oval. The affliction most often affects the scalp and beard, but may occur on any part of the body that is covered with hair. Different areas of the skin may exhibit hair loss and regrowth at the same time. The disease may also go into remission for a time, or may be permanent.

3. Trichotillomania

While the previous two disorders are physical in nature, Trichotillomania is an emotional affliction that causes the sufferer to have the uncontrollable urge to pull out their own hair. Sufferers vary in age and are known to pull out their body hair at the root from places like the scalp, eyebrows, lashes and pubic region. It presents in various stages of severity across genders, age groups and creeds – some people pull out handfuls of hair at a time, while others pull out one strand at a time and others even ingest the hair once removed.

We started this article by asking the question, does stress-related Hair loss necessarily mean that you have to get surgery. The short answer is not necessarily. Depending on the severity and root cause of your hair fall, there are a number of less invasive hair restoration techniques that can be applied before you have to submit to surgery.

The first step in the process to identifying your options is to ascertain why your hair is falling. At Advanced Hair Studio UAE we offer Advanced Hair Check, a scientific approach using advanced technology and state-of-the-art instruments, to answer questions related to hair loss, thinning and overall scalp condition.

Hair regrowth for men that simply have to be seen to be believed!

If there’s one thing that each and every single man on the planet has in common, it’s the undeniable fear of losing his hair. Yes, going bald is right up there with the fear of public speaking, spiders, homicidal clowns and flying in planes – which is to say, losing one’s hair is one of the more common fears among earth’s general population. The good news is that hair regrowth is not impossible. Hair regrowth for men needn’t be a difficult thing in today’s world, especially as the technologies on offer are readily available.

While almost 99% of men lose their hair due to genetic reasons, there are a small percentage that suffer hair loss due to other factors: lack of the correct nutrients and minerals as a result of bad diets, insufficient sleep, stress, and excessive smoking and alcohol intake. If you are experiencing hair loss, you needn’t worry. There are a variety of hair regrowth treatments out there that are able to give your scalp a new lease on life.

Whether you’ve started to notice a suspiciously thinning hairline or you’ve invested in a brand new panama hat (they’re so in this season) to mask your unsightly and rapidly expanding bald spot, there’s a fair chance you’ve dabbled in one of the many “miracle” hair regrowth methods or cures available to you.

Know this: while there are plenty of hair regrowth options out there developed specifically to fight hair loss, it’s hard to tell which methods to take seriously and which to flush down the drain with the last vestiges of your once thriving coiffure. Check out these hair regrowth before and after pictures below for some inspiration.

Does A Buzz Cut Impact The Normal Hair Growth Cycle

Can particular types of hair cuts affect the normal hair growth cycle?

At Advanced Hair Studio UAE, we receive a lot of queries regarding hairstyles and whether it impacts on the normal hair growth cycle. Recently a reader wanted to know whether his preference for buzz cuts could adversely affect hair regrowth down the line, so we decided to share our insights on the matter.

Does A Buzz Cut Impact The Normal Hair Growth Cycle

Buzz cuts & hair loss

We are very happy to report that buzz cuts do not cause hair loss or hair thinning. The only relationship between buzz cuts and hair loss that we could find is that gentlemen who suffer from male pattern baldness often prefer to shave their heads rather than opting for less slightly solutions like a comb-over hairstyle. Happily, there is no causal relationship between the two beyond the notion of personal preference.

In fact, you are more favorite impede hair regrowth or contribute to hair loss by wearing your favourite cap day in and day out. We recently published an article that discussed the notion of continual hat wearing and how it impacts on hair loss, which you can read here. The gist of it is that blood flow restriction and exposure to excess sebum and sweat could negatively impact on the health of your scalp and therefore deter natural hair regeneration.

What is the normal hair growth cycle?

While we are on the topic, here is a quite explanation of the four stages of the normal hair growth cycle:

1. Anagen (the growing phase): The anagen or growing phase will normally last between two to seven years and determines the length of an individual’s hair.
2. Catagen (the regression phase): The catagen or regression phase will normally last approximately ten days. During this phase the hair follicle shrinks and detaches from the dermal papilla.
3. Exogen (the shedding phase): The exogen or shedding phase refers to the period between the natural death of a resting hair and when it detaches from the follicle. During this phase the hair naturally loosens and falls.
4. Telogen (the resting phase): The telogen or resting phase lasts approximately three months and around 20% of your hair is in this stage at any given time.

It is important to note that our follicles are in a constant state of flux, which means that not all of your hair will be in the same growth phase at once. While some are growing or regressing, others are shedding or resting. There is not a lot you can do to prolong the growth stage or shorten the shedding phase, except adhering to a healthy lifestyle that will promote your body’s ability to grow strong and healthy hair. Look out for our article on daily lifestyle habits that keep your hair healthy for helpful advice on giving your body a helping hand.

Hair styles that do impact the normal hair growth cycle

While a buzz cut might not impact on the normal hair growth cycle, there are hairstyles that contribute to something called traction alopecia. In short – certain hairstyles pull on the roots of the hair, slowly killing it over time. These hairstyles include tight buns, cornrows, dreadlocks, weaves, hair extensions and chemically relaxed styles. Buzz cuts do not contribute to traction alopecia.
