treatments for both sudden and progressive hair loss

Thinning hair is a concern for women and men alike, but it’s important to understand the different types and causes in order to promote stronger, healthier hair. Sudden, temporary hair thinning often results from factors such as stress, dietary deficiencies, post-pregnancy hormonal changes or medications, while progressive hair thinning is usually hereditary. René Furterer offers proven botanically-based solutions for both types of hair thinning.

physiology of hair

The hair-growth cycle consists of three distinct stages.

The Anagen Phase

Roughly 90% of the hair is in the anagen phase at any given point in time. During this stage, the hair follicles are extremely active, with cells dividing rapidly to add length to the hair shaft. This phase can range from two to seven years, and is generally genetically predetermined.

The Catagen Phase

This stage marks the transition from active growth to shedding. During this phase, the hair follicle shrinks and the hair bulb rises closer to the scalp’s surface in preparation for shedding. The catagen stage averages three weeks.

The Telogen Phase

During the final stage of the hair-growth cycle, mature hairs are fully grown and their anchor to the scalp begins to weaken. New hair follicles begin to form, in turn pushing older hairs out of the scalp, causing them to shed. This phase can last from three to five months, and it’s common to lose about 100 hairs per day.

signs of sudden, temporary hair thinning

More common in women

 

Sudden hair thinning is generally triggered by a specific event.

 

When a majority of the hairs enter the catagen phase at the same time, thinning begins abruptly and hair may fall out in clumps.

 

Occurs on the entire head, rather than being isolated to certain areas.

signs of progressing, hereditary thinning hair

Experienced by both men and women and generally follows a pattern

 

It can take six months or more to notice the effects of progressive hair thinning.

 

Women generally see an overall decrease in hair density, and a widening of their part.

 

Men tend to experience thinning around the hairline and on the crown of the head.

sudden, temporary thinning hair

The causes—and solutions—for this type of thinning hair

what you need to know

Sudden, temporary hair thinning usually becomes visible two to three months after a specific event, which causes hairs to abruptly enter the shedding phase before completing the growth phase. This type of hair thinning is more prevalent in women, and can cause sudden thinning on the entire head.

possible triggers
  • Stress or emotional shock
  • A restricted or poor diet
  • Fatigue
  • Childbirth
  • Illness
  • Medications
underlying causes

Sudden, temporary hair thinning has two main underlying causes. Because it can be difficult to determine which is primarily responsible, it’s best to address both.

  • Vascular Deficiency - Poor blood flow to the hair follicles limits the availability of the nutrients necessary for healthy hair growth.
  • Nutritional Deficiency - The nutrients vital for hair growth are either limited or lacking altogether.

progressive, hereditary thinning hair

The causes—and solutions—for this type of thinning hair

what you need to know

Progressive, hereditary hair thinning often takes up to six months to become noticeable, and is generally genetically predetermined. This type of hair thinning usually follows a pattern, which is different in women and men. Women tend to experience a widening of the part and thinning patches, while men see thinning along the hairline and on the crown of the head.

underlying causes

Progressive, hereditary hair thinning has three main underlying causes. Because it can be difficult to determine which is primarily responsible, it’s best to address all of them.

  • Vascular deficiency - Poor blood flow to the hair follicles limits the availability of the nutrients necessary for healthy hair
  • Hormones - Excess oil production is linked to testosterone, and a byproduct of testosterone production called DHT has been found to disrupt the hair’s growth cycle.
  • Tissular deficiency - Collagen and elastin play a role in helping the scalp retain hairs, but when these structural proteins are compromised, thinning occurs.
