In Western Medicine
There are different kinds of alopecia, or abnormal hair loss, either caused by temporary conditions like hormone imbalance or disease, or by a genetic condition that can cause hair loss in men and women. Stress, pregnancy, and use of certain medications have been associated with hair loss. Hormones, medications, and diseases can cause a change in hair growth, shedding phases and in their duration.
In TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine)
There are several reasons for hair loss, blood deficiency, excess heat in the body, kidney deficiencies, external wind disturbances and external damage.
Blood deficiency - excessive bleeding like ulcer, excessive menstrual flow, long-term hemorrhoids with blood, lack of nutrition due to an imbalanced diet and spleen and stomach dysfunction causing poor nutritional absorption.
Excess heat in the body - when the body has excess heat, the hair will dry out and die just like a plant cannot grow without water.
Kidney deficiency - affects the regulation of the fluid balance in the body and causes disruption in the hair growth. The kidneys play a role in transforming stored Jing (kidney essence) into blood. Head hair depends on blood for its nourishment. If Jing and blood are abundant, the hair will appear bright, shiny and healthy. On the other hand, hair loss or other hair disorders can indicate a kidney deficiency or blood deficiency.
External wind disturbances - Wind Cold and Wind Heat are the main pathogens. Prolonged exposure to these conditions may lead to Lung, Stomach, Spleen and Kidney dysfunction.
External damage - Bleach, dye, mousse, gel, straightening chemicals, hair dryer etc will damage the hair directly
Different individuals may experience different symptoms, including:
- Excessive hair loss
- Thinning hair on the scalp
- Receding hairline
- Horseshoe-shaped pattern that leaves the crown of the head exposed
