Recently, many peoples are worried about thinning hair. And they feel that hair loss has increased. There are various causes of thinning hair and hair loss, such as eating habits and social environment, and it depends on gender and age.
Generally, the causes of thinning hair and hair loss due to differences in gender and age are tendencies. However, it also changes depending on individual lifestyles and environmental factors.
In the section below, for those who feel that “maybe thinning hair / hair loss is progressing?” the article will explain the causes and countermeasures of thinning hair and hair loss. It also shows whether there are preventive measures, what kind of measures are available.
The leading causes of hair loss/thinning hair:
To perform effective hair thinning treatment, it is essential to first understand the cause. Therefore, we will explain the typical causes of thinning hair.
AGA is a type of alopecia caused by androgen. However, androgens themselves do not directly cause thinning hair. So let’s sort out the onset mechanism once again.
Testosterone, a type of androgen, is converted to dihydrotestosterone (DHT) by combining with 5α-reductase (5α-reductase). This dihydrotestosterone binds to the hormone receptor (androgen receptor) in the hair follicle, disrupting the hair cycle of the hair.
As a result, the growth period of the hair cycle becomes shorter than usual, hair falls off during growth, and only thin and easy-to-fill hair grows. Testosterone and 5α-reductase are substances that initially exist in the body and cannot be removed. Therefore, in the field of AGA treatment, blocking its function is considered to be the most effective.
Effects of environmental factors:
AGA reported that most of them are genetic factors, but environmental factors cannot be ignored. For example, in patients with identical twins, the genes are exactly the same, so the drug should work as well.
It is a clear difference in the amount of hair one year after the start of treatment. This is speculated to be due to the patient’s history of smoking affecting the effectiveness. It is said that about 80% of thinning hair is a genetic factor, but about 20% is related to other factors.
How to prevent thinning hair by dyeing hair:
First of all, let’s be clear, in the first place, can hair dye cause hair loss? Hair loss is affected by the hair growth cycle without noticing it, and hair dyeing does not directly lead to hair loss! To prevent thinning hair, it’s best to stop dyeing hair, but that’s not the case. So here are at least three ways to deal with it.
Be careful not to leave any rinsing residue:
After dyeing your own hair, be careful not to leave the dye un-rinsed. If there is any un-rinsed residue, the scalp will continue to be stimulated.
Reduce the frequency of hair dyeing:
It is also effective to reduce the frequency of hair dyeing itself, which is the cause of damage. Frequent hair dyeing will cause more damage to your scalp and hair.
By leaving a period, you can recover the burden on your scalp as much as possible. You can cover the growing hair with “Hide Hair” or retouch it with a hair manicure. Since these are only applied to the hair’s surface, there is no damage to the scalp or hair.
Use color treatment:
It is also recommended to dye hair with a color treatment. The color lasts for about a week, but safe dyes that can be used repeatedly are used, and there are also excellent color treatments that can be used for skincare at the same time.
It goes without saying that it is a treatment and has a beautiful hair effect. At first, you should use color treatment as a “connector” to separate hair colors, but recently, many people feel that color treatment alone is enough.
