Vitamin D is an essential nutrient that plays a role in hair loss. A vitamin D deficiency can cause hair loss.

17.09.2018 in HAIR LOSS HEALTH NEWS

In looking at how vitamin D and hair growth are connected.  Does a deficiency cause hair loss, and is it reversible.

Does vitamin D deficiency cause hair loss?

A vitamin D deficiency can lead to hair loss.

Vitamin D stimulates hair follicles, so a deficiency can lead to hair loss.

There is evidence that having a vitamin D deficiency does cause hair loss and other hair problems.

Vitamin D stimulates hair follicles to grow, and so when the body does not have enough vitamin D, the hair is affected.

A vitamin D deficiency can also be linked to alopecia areata, an autoimmune condition that causes patchy hair loss.

We have found that people with alopecia areata have much lower levels of vitamin D than people who do not have alopecia.

Vitamin D deficiency can also play a role in hair loss in people without alopecia. Other research shows that women who have other forms of hair loss also had lower levels of vitamin D.

How does vitamin D affect hair?

Vitamin D affects the health of many parts of the body, including the hair.

Vitamin D plays a role in the creation of new hair follicles. New follicles will help hair maintain thickness and prevent existing hair from falling out prematurely.

Because of this link, getting adequate amounts of vitamin D can support hair growth and regrowth.

Other vitamin D deficiency symptoms.

People with a vitamin D deficiency may have no symptoms, or their symptoms may be nonspecific and change over time.

Symptoms of a vitamin D deficiency include:

changes in mood

depression

anxiety

frequent fractures

slow healing

loss of bone density

muscle weakness

high blood pressure

constant fatigue

chronic pain

infertility

decreased endurance

A lack of sunlight or not eating enough foods rich in vitamin D are the most common causes of a vitamin D deficiency.

If you are concerned about vitamin D deficiency-related hair loss should consult a trichologist who will likely suggest supplements, dietary changes, and spending more time outdoors to help combat the deficiency.

What to do if you lose your locks

19.12.2012 in CELEBRITY HAIR, HAIR LOSS HEALTH NEWS

By Miriam Stoppard

Seeing recent pictures of Naomi Campbell’s bald patches, probably caused by hair extensions, brought back bad memories for me.

I know how she feels because a similar thing happened to me a few years ago. I wanted the front of my hair to look thicker and longer so I went to a hair-extension stylist who’d been highly recommended.

At first it looked fantastic but about a month later the join between my own hair and the extension had become noticeable so I decided to have them removed.

That’s when it went wrong. It took several attempts to dissolve the glue that was holding them on but the chemical used to do this pulled out my own hair.

As I looked down I saw huge clumps, roots and all, in my lap. When I looked up in the mirror, I had no hair at the front.

Once the shock had worn off, I was devastated. But I also felt incredibly stupid. I hadn’t really looked into what could go wrong – after all, it was a just a hair treatment, not a medical procedure.

What a mistake – although my hair has partially recovered it never regained its original thickness.

Hair today..

Over the past few years, a number of celebrities, including Victoria Beckham, are said to have had the odd temporary bald patch after having extensions. Meanwhile, Jennifer Aniston has complained that having it done ruined the condition of her locks.

Stylists maintain that, if your own hair is in good nick and the extensions are properly fitted and maintained, they should be fine.

However, last year research
in the British Journal of Dermatology claimed that some women lose their hair within a week of having extensions and that even women with no obvious signs of hair loss had considerable underlying damage to the scalp when examined more closely.

The dermatologists – from the University of Miami in Florida and Bologna University in Italy – suggested that the problems are probably far more common than reported.

Danger areas

Traction alopecia tends to happen at the front of the head and around the temples, where the hair is weakest.

The extensions, which are attached by glue, weaving or braiding, put tension on the hair follicles, which become inflamed, causing hair to fall out. This is more likely if the extensions are heavy, left in a long time or fitted badly. Some glues can damage hair, too.

But any tight hairstyles like braids can have the same effect while harsh chemicals such as dyes, bleaches and straightening solutions further weaken hair.

If it’s caught early, it’ll grow back but the hair loss can be permanent.

HOW TO SAVE YOUR SCALP

Look out for small, red, sometimes painful bumps on the scalp, flaking or broken-off hair.

If there’s any damage or hair loss, have the extensions professionally removed and limit styling.

Ask your GP to refer you to a dermatologist who can confirm the cause of your hair loss and whether it may grow back. Regrowth can take three to six months or longer.

If the hair loss is permanent, a hair transplant, in which hairs from the back of the head are grafted on to the bald bits, is the only solution. Needless to say, you can’t get it on the NHS and it will set you back several thousand pounds, so make sure the doctor is registered with the General Medical Council and belongs to the British Association of Hair Restoration Surgeons (www.hairsurgeons.org.uk).

The clinic should be registered with the Healthcare Commission. Ask about the doctor’s experience and what realistically can be achieved. Also
ask to see before and after pictures of their patients.

Public Health Researcher Rallies Against Propecia

06.06.2012 in HAIR LOSS HEALTH NEWS

A number of men have filed lawsuits against drug maker Merck after experiencing side effects related to the hair loss drug Propecia, and one former patient is taking it much further–Kevin Malley, who is a former public health researcher from Las Vegas, Nevada, has staged a hunger strike and protest outside of Merck’s headquarters, which are located in New Jersey. He says that he experienced side effects as a result of his use of the drug that have virtually destroyed his life, leaving him with complications lasting much longer than could reasonably be expected. A number of patients have brought forth Propecia litigation with the help of a personal injury lawyer, but Malley is going even farther by staging his protest outside of company headquarters.

Propecia erectile dysfunction cause of fury
Kevin Malley is 30 years old and claims that he began taking the medication in 2011 to combat his hair loss. Five months later, he claims that he began experiencing side effects from his Propecia use, including erectile dysfunction and loss of libido. Although he stopped his use of the medication, his side effects did not go away. He claims that even now, despite having discontinued his use for eight months, the side effects have not resolved themselves. He claims that drug maker Merck should be held responsible for the loss of his quality of life.

Malley claims that as a result of his physical and psychological ailments resulting from his Propecia use, he resigned from his research position and broke off his engagement with his fiancée after she learned that his sexual dysfunction might be permanent. Malley found that a number of other men had experienced the same side effects and complications as he has, and has decided to take action against the drug manufacturer as a result.

Studies support Propecia plaintiffs
Studies have been released that seem to show a link between Propecia use and lasting sexual dysfunction, including one conducted by Dr. Michael S. Irwig. He found that more than 90 percent of the men he surveyed in his study developed low libido and erectile dysfunction after taking Propecia and many of these patients experienced side effects for an average of 40 months after they stopped taking the medication.
