What Type of Hair Loss Do You Have?

What type of Hair loss do you have?

Are you one of the 1 in 5 Americans who suffer from hair loss?  

Hair loss can be caused by a variety of reasons.  Though generally speaking there are 7 distinct types of hair loss Androgenic Alopecia

  • Male pattern hair loss
  • Female pattern hair loss

Telogen Effluvium

  • Aggressive hair loss of more than 300 hairs per day

Anagen Effluvium

  • Sudden hair loss with hair in the growing phase (chemotherapy or radiation therapy treatments)

Alopecia Areata/Totalis/Universalis

  • Auto-immune condition

Cicatricial Alopecia

  • Scarring alopecia (a rare type of hair loss in which inflammation destroys hair follicles

Lichen Planopilaris

  • May cause a dry, flaky rash to appear on the skin (causes hair on the scalp to fall out in clumps)

Hair Shaft Abnormalities

  • Hair strands will shed, and weaken making them vulnerable to breaking

Though these are the types of hair loss, there may be underlying reasons that hair is falling out or not growing back. One contributing factor is a common condition called leaky gut.  Leaky gut occurs when the body is not able to absorb vitamins and minerals in food.  In addition, hair loss can occur when the body undergoes a physical trauma (such as surgery) or emotional trauma (such as stress or grief).  When a trauma is experienced, the body shuts down things it feels are not vital to survival, including hair follicles.  For those who have had bariatric surgery, 60 million lose hair due to the trauma on their bodies from the surgery.  Bariatric patients can benefit from IV therapy both prior to surgery and after, because they are no longer able to absorb the vitamins and minerals that they need.  Surprisingly, even people who have had hair transplants can be affected by hair loss due to the procedure.  With any and all of these circumstances, IV therapy for hair loss could be an option for people going through these things to help with vitamin and mineral absorption.  Since the reason for hair loss is so intricate, many sufferers can benefit from a more aggressive, natural treatment like IV therapy. HPIHair is the first in the southeast to offer these natural hair therapies. Customized IV hair loss therapy is the process of vitamins being put directly into your bloodstream, therefore bypassing the digestive tract.  The vitamins included in the cocktail include copper, selenium, amino acids, NAC,vitamin B’s and vitamin C. Hair loss infusion therapy may benefit you if you have experienced any of the following:

  • Dry, thin or brittle hair
