A Beginners Guide To Hairloss

Hairloss is no laughing matter. As a matter of fact it's one of the single most traumatic experiences anybody can experience during their lifetime. Modern society has always placed a huge amount of importance on physical appearance and physical beauty. Those who don't fit in with what the rest of society see as “normal" can be sometimes left on the periphery of life - or at least made to feel that they're simply marginal in life. In some cases the supposed stigma attached to hairloss can make some sufferers drop out of society altogether - their selfworth diminished to an incredibly low level.

Hairloss is upsetting regardless of your gender, race or social status. The vast majority of people would be willing to do anything to prevent it or cure it. This has led to a hairloss and hair replacement industry that makes billions of dollars per year in pure profit. Unforunately not all of this profit is earned fairly or even legally. There are dozens, if not hundreds, of sneaky companies who know they can make a quick buck from people suffering from hairloss - all they have to do is make promises that they can cure or prevent it and people will hand over any amount of money. Many of the supposed “cures" and “treatments" on the market are all but worthless.

Another thing to bear in mind is the actual term hairloss itself - it's often misused. It has become a “catchall" phrase to cover both genetic(hereditary) and non-hereditary hairloss. Hairloss has two distinct branches.

Genetic/Hereditary hairloss

This is an inherited form of hairloss - the genetic trait probably coming from your mother. Most people assume that if their father was bald they'll be bald - you actually need to look at your mothers father. Genetic hairloss can affect both men and women.

Non-hereditary hairloss

Any type of hairloss that is non-genetic normally falls under the banner of non-hereditary hairloss.

It's important to have a solid understanding of what type of hairloss you're dealing with before attempting to treat it. There's a lot of misinformation out there and you should always question any treatment that claims to be 100% effective. . . if that was the case why is anybody in the world bald, balding or suffering from hairloss?

Hopefully this article will at least prompt you to ask more questions about all these “cures". If it achieved that much then I will be eternally grateful.
