3 Main Causes Of Hair Loss Today.


Male-pattern and female-pattern baldness (androgenetic alopecia). An inherited condition caused by oversensitive hair follicles. This is linked to dihydrotestosterone (DHT) that is produced by the male hormone testosterone. The DHT causes the follicles to shrink. Hair becomes thinner and grows for less time than normal.

Alopecia areata. A disease linked to the immune system. It causes patchy hair loss and can progress to total hair loss. The hair follicles are not permanently damaged, and in many of these cases the hair grows back. One in five cases are genetic. If hair loss is caused by an infection or a condition such as anaemia, treating the infection or condition may prevent further hair loss. In some cases, such as after cancer treatment, your hair may start to grow again.

Telogen effluvium. General shedding and thinning of the hair. This usually occurs a few months after a shock to the system, such as extreme stress, fever, childbirth, sudden weight loss, an operation or as a reaction to medication. The hair loss is usually temporary.

When Do I actually Have to Go to the Trichologist?

When a woman has any type of medical concern she tends to quickly run to the doctor’s office to be treated. Men, however, characteristically pass up a doctor diagnosis unless under extreme circumstances. In fact, according to a poll conducted by Harris Interactive, although 85% of men claim they see a doctor when sick, 92% of men actually wait at least a few days before going to see if they feel better first.

But a man’s self-diagnosis may be dangerous. Due to an average guy’s un-trained eye, he probably does not know exactly what will harm him and what won’t.

When it’s time to see the Trichologist:


If you begin losing hair rapidly, and or are cosmetically concerned about baldness, consult your Trichologist about treatment options. You can receive a free hair loss consultation with a Westminster Trichologist at our Hair Centre.

Gary Heron says: “You’ll have access to the most effective treatments available through The Hair Centre and at a fraction of the cost of going to other Private Commercial Clinics and Centres.”

The point is that you are not getting to the real problem and you should seek specific professional advice from a Westminster Trichologist.

“Why buy hair loss treatments over the counter or on the internet when you can see a Westminster Trichologist for FREE and know that you are guaranteed results”
