Thinning Hair

Dr Rasha Clinic


Thinning Hair

Thinning hair, a condition that can affect both men and women, is characterized by a gradual reduction in hair density and thickness, leading to hair that may appear less full and visibly sparse. It’s often associated with factors such as genetics, hormonal changes, and the natural aging process.

Thinning hair can manifest in various patterns, including:

  • Widening Part: The part in your hair becomes wider, revealing more of the scalp.
  • Receding Hairline: Men often notice thinning at the hairline, which can result in a receding hairline or a broader forehead.
  • Crown Thinning: Some individuals experience thinning hair at the crown or vertex of the head, leading to a visible bald spot or thinning area.
  • Overall Thinning: In certain cases, hair may thin uniformly across the entire scalp, giving the appearance of reduced fullness and volume.

What Causes Thinning Hair?

  • Heredity (Family History): The most prevalent cause of hair loss is hereditary and age-related. Androgenic alopecia, often referred to as male-pattern baldness or female-pattern baldness, characterizes this condition. Its progression is typically gradual, with men experiencing receding hairlines and bald spots, and women dealing with crown thinning.
  • Hormonal Fluctuations and Medical Conditions: Various factors can lead to both temporary and permanent hair loss. Hormonal changes due to events like pregnancy, childbirth, menopause, and thyroid issues are known contributors. Medical conditions like alopecia areata (an immune system-related disorder causing patchy hair loss), scalp infections such as ringworm, and trichotillomania (a hair-pulling disorder) are potential culprits.
  • Medications and Supplements: Certain medications, such as those prescribed for cancer, arthritis, depression, heart conditions, gout, and hypertension, can result in hair loss as a side effect.
  • Radiation Therapy: When used on the head, radiation therapy can alter hair growth, potentially leading to changes in hair texture or patterns.
  • Stressful Events: After experiencing significant physical or emotional stress, many people notice general hair thinning several months later. Fortunately, this type of hair loss is often temporary.
  • Hairstyles and Treatments: Excessive hairstyling, especially styles that exert tension on the hair, like tight pigtails or cornrows, can induce a type of hair loss known as traction alopecia. Additionally, hot-oil hair treatments and permanents have the potential to contribute to hair loss. In cases where scarring occurs, the hair loss may become permanent.

How To Tackle Thinning Hair?

When it comes to thinning hair, there are some lifestyle and medication options which are available when speaking to your GP or healthcare practitioner. These can include: 

  • Medication Options: Depending on the cause of your hair thinning, healthcare providers may recommend suitable medications. These may include established treatments like minoxidil (Rogaine) and finasteride (Propecia) for androgenetic alopecia (genetic hair loss). Additionally, tailored medications are available for specific conditions.
  • Optimizing Nutrition: Ensuring that your body receives the essential nutrients for healthy hair growth is paramount. Key elements such as biotin, iron, zinc, and protein should be highlighted to encourage optimal hair growth.
  • Hair Care Routine: At Dr. Rasha Clinic, we emphasize the importance of a gentle and hair-friendly care routine. This includes the selection of mild hair care products, avoidance of harsh chemicals, and responsible heat styling.
  • Stress Management: Chronic stress can contribute to hair loss. Techniques for reducing stress, including mindfulness, meditation, yoga, and relaxation exercises, can be beneficial for effective stress management, which, in turn, promotes a healthier scalp and hair.
  • Scalp Health: Maintaining a healthy scalp is essential for robust hair growth. Regular scalp massages, offered by our skilled professionals, stimulate blood flow to hair follicles and promote an optimal environment for hair regeneration.
