At Christoffels and Company, we offer a caring approach to clients suffering from hair loss or thinning hair due to chemotherapy, and medically related hair loss. A few of the causes of medically related hair loss include:
Chemotherapy consists of the administration of drugs that destroy rapidly reproducing cancer cells. Unfortunately, while chemotherapy drugs preferentially destroy cancer cells, the drugs also can destroy those cells responsible for normal growth of hair and nails.
Hormonal Hair Loss
Female hair loss is often the result of hormonal changes. Pregnancy and birth control pills often cause localized or diffused hair loss. The thinning may be delayed by three months following the hormonal change and another three months will be required for new hair to be re-grown.
Alopecia areata is a common cause of hair loss affecting about 4 million Americans. It usually starts with one or more small round bald patches on the scalp and can progress to total scalp and body hair loss.
Hair loss from thyroid disease is usually reversible with proper treatment, however the hair loss typically does not stop immediately when the blood work becomes normal. For most people it takes several months for their hair to start growing in and for others it can take longer.
Lupus causes the immune system to become overactive and create antibodies that attack healthy tissues, including hair follicles.
Trichotillomania (Compulsive Hair Pulling)
Lots of people have nervous habits, but people who pull out their hair compulsively can suffer overwhelming emotional and even physical impact. Psychiatrists estimate that four million Americans have what is called trichotillomania (trick-o-till-o-main-ee-a).
