Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Hair loss or in medical language is called alopecia is indeed a problem for men and women, especially those who are relatively young. But before continuing, you also need to know that hair falls out normally every day up to 100 strands per day. In some women, even 150 strands are still considered normal. So that in fact your hair condition could be normal.
However, you should also know that hair loss is influenced by the following risk factors:
Use of hair straighteners Emotional stress Hormonal changes Moderate diet Lack of red blood cells Inadequate nutritional intake in the form of zinc and protein Tying hair too tightly Painting or dyeing hair, using hair gels Using a hair dryer Other conditions such as diabetes and hyperthyroidism
Seeing your condition who is still 16 years old, the possibility of hormonal changes and hair straightening habits during the last 4 years, actually the tendency is more to influence lifestyle and will improve by itself without further treatment along with lifestyle improvements by avoiding risk factors. However, further examination by experts is still needed to ensure this, so we strongly recommend that you see a dermatologist, including because of the sore scalp symptoms you feel.
Meanwhile, avoid using a comb with too dense teeth, avoid tying your hair too tightly, using a straightener, hair dye or hair dryer too often. Increase the consumption of nutrient-rich foods such as spinach, meat, and other vegetables and fruits, eggs, milk, cheese and tempeh.
