Hair loss is becoming a common problem in Singapore that has been plaguing Singaporeans as early as the mid-20s. Although medical advancement has allowed for greater effectiveness in treating hair loss, many suffering from these problems have no idea why their hair fall.
An average adult’s head has up to 150,000 hairs and it is normal to lose about 100 strands a day. Hair loss has become such a common issue that everyone is seeking help on hair loss treatment in Singapore.
Head and body hair loss happens to everyone; in fact research suggests that losing up to 100 strands of hair per day is normal. The hair goes through phases of growth, called the anagen and telogen phases. During the anagen phase, hair is in a growth cycle and during the telogen phase, hair is in a resting phase. It is during this phase that hair loss is experienced. Losing this hair allows for new hair growth and is part of the normal cycle of a hair follicle. Still, people might wonder what the difference between normal and abnormal hair loss is.
When it comes to hairstyles, wearing the high in a manner that pulls it tight can lead to some hair loss.
Buns are tried and true go-to for women who need a quick way to pull their hair back if they don’t want to take the time to style it. The bun is also used for formal occasions as it can be pulled back neatly for a classy and sleek look.
A relatively new trend in men’s style has been the “man bun”, which is exactly the same as a woman would use but it is relatively rare for a man to have long hair and pull it back in a bun so it evidently deserves it’s own term.
There are several factors behind hair loss among females. Conditions that can cause thinning and loss include level of iron in the body, poor diet, stress levels, hormonal imbalances, thyroid level inconsistencies, changes in weight, and of course genetics.
Hair loss, while quite common, can be a nuisance for some and larger problem for others. For those who are experiencing uncomfortable amounts of hair loss, PRP therapy might be an option. PRP treatments involve a non-invasive, simple procedure to assist with the loss of hair by utilizing the body’s own growth factors.
