We normally lose up to 100 hairs per day, but there are that many new hairs being generated in the follicles each day on a healthy head. At any one time 90% of the follicles are producing hair in a growth (anagen) cycle, but each follicle has its own time clock that can be influenced by age, disease, medicines and other factors. This timed life cycle has three stages. The anagen phase is active growth and lasts between two to six years. The catagen or transitional phase lasts from two to three weeks. The telogen or resting phase lasts two to three months, and at the end of this phase the hair is shed and new hair replaces it, starting the cycle all over again.
Use of a laser hair comb can help in so many situations, and until the reasons for the hair loss are analyzed a hopeful situation should prevail, and all steps to provide your scalp with a healthy environment should be taken. Very few conditions dictate total baldness, and even male pattern baldness can be stopped and reversed if caught early. If you can see that any of your parents exhibit balding tendencies, you should start using a laser hair comb and following the health guidelines suggested above. An early start gives you a heads-up on a healthier, younger looking you.
Alcohol should be limited to one drink per day as it robs the body of zinc, vitamin B, folic acid and vitamin C and upsets blood sugar levels. Caffeine depletes the body of Vitamin B and C, potassium and zinc. Decreasing nutrients in the bloodstream increases levels of DHT which inhibits the growth of new hair. Use of a laser hair comb will not be as beneficial if DHT is allowed to accumulate in the follicles. Nicotine of course should be avoided. Even a laser hair comb cannot combat certain medications that may or may not be prescribed by a medical professional. The following is only a partial listing, and of course you must investigate any medications you are taking for their relevance to scalp health. Cholesterol lowering drugs, Parkinson medications, ulcer drugs, anti-coagulants, anti-arthritics, anti-convulsants, antidepressants, beta blockers, anti-thyroid agents and male hormones may cause hair loss (reversible alopecia).
