My hair is falling out badly, in the area of the head that is falling out there is fine hair that grows. But the hair falls out again, at the tip of the hair root there is a white object. Does cutting my hair bald affect my hair growth? Please explain the doctor. Thank you.
Hello Muhamad Nurifan,
Cutting your hair bald doesn't affect your hair growth cycle, so it doesn't make your hair thick. Cutting hair only removes parts of the hair that are damaged due to the use of hair heaters, hair products, or excessive sun exposure.
Hair loss can occur in all parts of the body or only in the head. Symptoms of hair loss include:
Hair appears thin in certain parts of the head. In men most often in the area of the fontanel or starting at the front line of the hair.
Multiple spots, some parts of the head that do not grow hair
Very large amounts of hair fall out when shampooing, combing, and even a lot can also be seen on your pillow
Some causes of hair loss include:
Hereditary, family history (father, mother) with complaints of hair loss
Hormonal changes: pregnancy, thyroid disorders, menopause
The use of certain drugs: chemotherapy, antidepressants
Use of hair products that are not appropriate
Scalp skin disease: tinea capitis, seborrheic dermatitis
The diagnosis of hair loss can be found from a doctor's examination. Examinations such as pull tests, microscopy examinations with special tools to get a bigger picture of hair, to skin biopsy may be needed for certain cases.
Hair loss therapy can reduce / slow down hair loss or even restore normal hair growth. In some cases, hair loss can repair itself and bald parts can grow back within 1 year.
Medications that are commonly used to treat hair loss, such as minoxidil and finasteride. Both can stimulate new hair growth, besides slowing down. However, these drugs should only be consumed and used according to instructions from the doctor from the results of the examination.
In more severe cases of baldness, cosmetic measures such as hair transplants can provide more satisfying results for patients.
To prevent more hair loss, consider the following:
If a lot of activity in the hot sun, protect your head using a hat / umbrella
Use a comb with teeth that are less frequent
Don't rub the scalp too hard when shampooing
Try replacing the shampoo product you are using
Make sure you eat nutritious foods. Nutrition affects hair growth. Some studies show deficiency (deficiency) of iron, zinc, selenium, vitamin B3, vitamin A, vitamin E, fatty acids, amino acids, related to hair loss and baldness.
Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
