Hair Loss in Women
This morning's topic of discussion at the breakfast table at work was about hair or rather the lack of it, hair loss. Hair loss is normally associated with men but women too suffer from the condition called female pattern hair loss. The (hair) loss is predominantly visible on the top and sides of the head. One-third of women suffer from female pattern hair loss after menopause.
Did you know that women lose 100-125 strands of hair each day and that if you lose more than 125, that would be considered true female pattern hair loss. Of course there are effective products to counteract hair loss as well as promote hair growth.
What interesting topic has your group talked about at breaks?

wow, you really have different interesting topics to chat over during breaks with your colleagues??ReplyDelete
err, to me, nothing special.. just chat whatever that comes out of mind but really nothing specific on certain topic..ReplyDelete
ooh, so you have the statistics for men?? do men drop 100-125 strands of hair a day too?? hmmm, that much?? quite unbelievable to me..ReplyDelete
err, i actually find strands of hair on my bed and on the floor.. errr, there are 100 of them a day?? really??ReplyDelete
So you had a hair raising morning over cuppa. 100-125 strands for ladies is quite a lot. [SK] read in one mag for men was around 60 strands per day presume shorter hair would not be easier to drop. A hair stylist friend of mine advised against tying little girls hair too tight during plaiting or pony tail style etc as that might damage the hair over the long term.ReplyDelete
I do have hair loss issue and have consulted my hairstylist and according to him, as long as there are baby hair growing back after lots of hair drop, you're still on the safe zone!ReplyDelete
Hair lose is a common problem for all of us especially in women. The information you provided is true but we must stop hair lose from the very early stage. The main reason for hair lose is pollution. Thanks for the post and have a nice week ahead.ReplyDelete
Perhaps they should comb their hair less? :pReplyDelete
WDS, you're welcome and glad you found this topic interesting. As for the products available, I have no doubt there are many available on the market but for convenience, if you'd click on the link on the post, you'll find the recommended products on the site.ReplyDelete
SK, indeed, never a day goes by without something interesting to talk about though food and travel top the list mostly.
Not sure about the stats for men but one thing's for sure though, a number of factors can cause hair loss, one of which is stress. So, take it easy, yeah?
Bananaz, hair-raising? LOL! 60 strands is a good number vs 100. Thanks for the tips from your hairstylist friend. Makes sense.ReplyDelete
SunShine, baby hair.. I like that. Thanks for sharing that. Sure is good to know. Phew!
Instantdocs, hi and thanks for stopping by. Prevention is better than cure, most definitely. Thanks.ReplyDelete
Tekkaus, would that help you think? I think hair loss like the tide waits for no man. Oops!
My lunch kakis are a group of young mums. So it's always about kids stuff and pregnancy.ReplyDelete
I feel kind of left out, haha. =p
Shingo, I know what you mean but then again, you could start on something that might interest them besides kids and pregnancy. Oh well, there are worse things in life, right? Welcome back!ReplyDelete
