\How to Deal with Alopecia Areata
Hair loss may occur due to various reasons and there also many ways they can be treated, depending on the cause. Chemical composition of hair consists of Carbon - 45%, Hydrogen - 7%, Oxygen - 28%, Nitrogen - 15% and Sulfur - 5%. Besides that, there are some elements like iron, copper, zinc and iodine, twenty different kinds of amino acids, proteins, lipids and water. The hair is divided into two parts, the inner part located in the dermis, where there is the formation, growth and nutrition of the wire.
Initial symptoms of alopecia areata that are common are small bald patches. The skin affected with the bald patches is scars free, except of those that were present prior to this condition. The patches can be any shape but are predominantly the one of circular shape. Different areas can exhibit loss and regrowth simultaneously. The disease may even go into a permanent or temporary period of remission in which there is no further hair loss and areas that experienced hair loss may start experiencing renewed hair growth. Other symptoms can be:
- Hair is lost (falls out) very quickly and hair loss is asymmetric in that more hair is lost on one side of the scalp than the other.
- Areas experiencing hair loss may tingle or even be painful.
- If you were to attempt to pull out some hair affected by alopecia areata, the hair that is along the edge of bald spots will pull out more easily than hair away from the edge due to the fact that the hair at the edge is already being affected by alopecia areata. This is in contrast to attempting to pull out healthy hair, in which case there should be at most a few hairs pulled out and they should be distributed relatively unevenly across the pulled portion of the scalp.
The first and crucial step in treating alopecia is determining what treatment option may be best. Consulting with your primary care physician, dermatologist, or hair transplant specialist is the first step to treatment. In some cases, an underlying medical condition may be causing the hair loss which when treated will result in the hair growing. If medical treatment is warranted, it can take 6 months or longer to see return of the hair that had been lost. Also, diet is a very important factor in good hair and scalp health. In particular what sort of food we are eating to not only keep ourselves alive, but keep ourselves healthy.
You should take care of your scalp hygiene. Washing the hair once a day is ideal. Using natural shampoo against alopecia, like Marbo Shampoo 03, preferably non-hormonal, non-steroidal and completely formulated from natural ingredients, is safe to use by everybody. Daily massaging of the scalp is also recommended. The extra release of adrenaline and stress chemicals affects the composition of the blood which can cause hair loss . Being aware of this can itself help combat this problem and enable the sufferer to get help sooner rather than later.
