Hair Loss And Clip In Hair Extensions

Hair loss is also known as Baldness and is a medical condition that affects some 25% of men in their 20s and an astounding 2/3 of all men after the age of 60. It is one of the most well known side effects of chemotherapy and is more likely with high doses of chemotherapy or when several drugs are given together. Hair loss is believed to be primarily caused by a combination of the following:aging, change in hormones, illness and family history. Hair loss is not caused by a lack of any vitamins in the diet and is so common that most of the time it is considered a normal variation and not a disease.

It is a very common problem that affects both men and women, from all parts of the world and is largely the result of certain hormones interacting over time with those hair follicles that are vulnerable to their effects. It is a gradual process, some research has indicated that it takes 5 years or more for follicle roots to fully cease and can be hard to predict. Hair loss can be reduced somewhat by avoiding too much brushing or pulling of hair, and by avoiding heat (such as electric rollers, hair dryers, and curling irons). It is, for many people, a major emotional problem.

Hair loss can be divided into two categories: Hair loss with skin shedding (also called "scaling") and Hair Loss without skin shedding. It can also be caused by factors such as stress, allergies, and parasites, or internal problems such as a thyroid disorder, diabetes, or cancer. Baldness is hereditary 95% of the time and is passed down on the maternal side of the family and is an example of a sex-linked hereditary condition; it is dominant for males and recessive for females.

People who just suffer from a thinning of hair can use products such as hair extensions or realistic clip in hair extensions. This will thicken up layers, add length and generally compensate for the thinning which has occurred.
