Causes of Hair Loss


Female Pattern Hair Loss

Seborrheic Hair Loss
Hair thinning and miniaturisation begin at both sides of forehead and the crown symmetrically.Excess sebum gathers and accumulates in the excretory ducts of the follicles causing inflammation. Actively growing hair becomes duller, thinner and weaker, accompanied by hair loss.
M-Shaped Hair Loss
The process of receding begins at frontal hairline, gradually affecting the back of head in severe cases.
Diffuse Hair Loss
Stress causes excess production of sebum and oil build-up, as well as scalp muscles to become tense or contract which affects blood circulation.
Male Pattern Baldness
One of the most common type of hair loss among female. Typically hereditary hair thinning, rather than balding, occurs at the age of 20-30.
