What are the common causes of hair loss?
Hair loss affects millions of people worldwide and can stem from various factors. Understanding the common causes of hair loss is essential in determining the most suitable treatment options. At Wellaholic, we have treated thousands of customers with hair loss.
Here is a simple table showing some prevalent reasons behind hair loss:
|How They Started
|Genetics (Androgenetic Alopecia)
|Inherited from one or both parents; usually starts with a receding hairline or thinning hair on the crown
|Triggered by events such as pregnancy, childbirth, menopause, or thyroid disorders
|Can be a result of alopecia areata (autoimmune disorder), scalp infections, or iron deficiency anemia
|Medications and Treatments
|Side effects from specific medications like chemotherapy, blood thinners, or certain antidepressants
|Physical or Emotional Stress
|Caused by traumatic events or high levels of stress, leading to temporary hair loss known as telogen effluvium
|Hairstyling and Treatments
|Excessive heat styling, chemical treatments, or tight hairstyles that pull on the hair, causing traction alopecia or hair breakage
Understanding the impact of hair loss on self-esteem and confidence
Hair loss deeply affects a person’s self-esteem and confidence. It changes how one looks and feels about oneself. Hair is tied to beauty and attractiveness. So, losing hair can make a person feel less attractive. This harms their self-image.
In my time working in aesthetics, I have seen how hair loss changes social life. People with hair loss often avoid social events. They feel uneasy around others. This can lead to loneliness and sometimes depression.
Hair loss also affects work life. Confidence is key in many jobs. Without it, one might struggle to do well or move up in their career.
Lastly, hair loss can harm mental health. It adds stress and can lead to anxiety or depression. This is especially true if someone already struggles with these issues.
What are the different types of hair loss specialists?
Dermatologists know a lot about hair, skin, and nails. They can find out why you’re losing hair. They can then plan the best treatment for you.
Why should you see a dermatologist for hair loss? These doctors focus on problems with skin, hair, and nails. They can tell if your hair loss is due to genes, hormones, or health issues. They will make a treatment plan that fits you.
How can a dermatologist help with hair loss? They can give you medicine or treatments to help hair grow. They will tell you how to care for your hair. This includes avoiding harsh chemicals and heat. They may suggest changes in your diet and ways to lower stress. They might also talk about hair restoration, like transplants or other procedures.
Seeing a dermatologist for hair loss means you get care that’s right for you. This can help you find out why you’re losing hair and get back healthy hair.
Hair loss is tough. It’s stressful for many people. As an Aesthetic Director, I often suggest seeing a trichologist. They are experts in hair and scalp health. They look at your lifestyle, diet, and health to find out why you’re losing hair. They’re not doctors, but they know a lot about hair.
Trichologists offer treatments just for you. They might suggest special scalp treatments, vitamins, or hair products. Working with them means you get a plan made just for your hair needs. They think about your whole health, not just your hair. This can really help get your hair and scalp healthier.
Hair transplant surgeons
In my time as an Aesthetic Director, I’ve learned a lot about hair transplant surgeons. These experts help people with major hair loss. They are good at surgeries like FUT and FUE.
Here’s how these surgeons work. They move hair from one place to another on your head. If you need a hair transplant, it’s key to pick a surgeon who is very skilled and has happy clients.
When choosing a surgeon, think about your hair type and what you want to look like. A good surgeon will look at your hair loss and pick the best surgery for you.
Getting a hair transplant is a big choice. You should think about it a lot and research. Find a surgeon who is skilled and can help you get the hair you want.
The use of hair dyes and hair styling products may increase the risk of hair loss among Asians. One study compiled by Wellaholic found that the use of hair dyes was associated with an increased risk of hair loss in Korean women.
Endocrinologists are doctors who study hormones. They help with hormone problems that can cause hair loss. This is important, especially for women. Seeing an endocrinologist is a good step if you have hair thinning or are losing hair. They look for hormone issues that might be the reason.
Hormones can cause hair loss. Problems like PCOS, thyroid issues, or adrenal gland problems can make hair fall out. An endocrinologist checks for these.
The endocrinologist will do tests and maybe scans. They find out what’s wrong with your hormones. Then, they choose the best way to treat it. This might be medicine, hormone therapy, or changes in how you live.
It’s important to find out why you’re losing hair. That’s how you fix it for a long time. If you have hair loss, talk to an endocrinologist. They can give you treatment that really works for you.

Factors to consider when choosing a hair loss doctor
Choosing a hair loss doctor is a big decision. You want the best care and results. Here are things to consider.
First, find out if the doctor specializes in your type of hair loss. This can be dermatology, trichology, endocrinology, or hair transplant surgery. Each field has its own skills. Picking the right one is key.
Next, look into the doctor’s background. Check their qualifications, experience, and training in hair loss treatments. A skilled and seasoned doctor will likely give better diagnoses and plans.
Also, consider the doctor’s reputation. Read reviews from past patients. Ask friends or family who have had hair loss treatment for recommendations. A doctor with good feedback is likely to give good results.
Choose a doctor who understands your unique case. This includes your medical history, lifestyle, and hair loss issues. A personal approach means the treatment will suit your needs.
Lastly, pick a doctor who is easy to talk to. This makes you feel at ease. It also ensures you are well-informed during treatment.
During the consultation with the doctor
Talking to a hair loss doctor is key. You need to use this time well. It’s your chance to share what bothers you, ask questions, and understand your hair loss. Here’s what to keep in mind:
First, tell your doctor about your medical history. Share details about your medications, supplements, and health issues. This helps them find the cause of your hair loss and plan the right treatment.
Next, talk about your hair loss worries. Tell them how it affects you. This lets the doctor focus on your needs and what you hope for.
Don’t be shy to ask questions. Ask about their experience, treatment options, and risks. This helps you know what to expect.
Listen to the doctor’s advice on treatments. Think about each option’s good and bad points. Look at things like cost and how long treatments take.
Lastly, plan a follow-up meeting if needed. This keeps track of your treatment and changes if needed. Regular meetings with your doctor can guide you to better hair health.
By taking an active role in your consultation, you can make good choices and feel sure about your hair health journey.
