Diffused Hair Loss

Diffused hair loss can be evident through a multitude of problems. Diffused hair loss shows it self as a general overall thinning of the entire scalp. Below is a list of some of the causes, although the list is not exhaustive.

  • Low iron levels
  • Scalp psoriasis
  • Post natal
  • Medication
  • Illness
  • Shock
  • Hormonal
  • Menopause
  • High temperature
  • Toothache
  • Scaling scalp conditions
  • Diet
  • Mechanical – as in chemical over-process / over-use of too hot styling tools

Usually this condition is temporary and able to be corrected once diagnosis and prognosis is made by a trichologist or dermatologist.

Medication, time or hair products and styling could be your first treatments, depending on the diagnosis.

Should the hair be well bedded within the hair follicle, it is possible to add some micro bonded hair extensions to add volume to the hair.

However, scalp tests must be made to ensure the receiving hair is strong enough to take the extra weight of the added hair.

Of course in diffused hair loss where the scalp is really exposed, scalp makeup and or fibres can be really effective should the condition be temporary. If the condition were to be diagnosed by a trichologist or dermatologist to be permanent, then perhaps a hair replacement system would be the better and most effective option.

Take a look at Sandra’s photographs, Sandra suffers with severe scalp psoriasis, being so persistent for so many years has left Sandra with a permanent diffused hair loss. Sandra now wears a fabulously natural hair replacement system which is perimeter bonded.

Androgenetic and Diffused Alopecia – Jackie’s Story

I give you my feelings…………My life was horrendous – it was false, insecure and old-fashioned trying to cover up
the ‘baldness’ – back-combing and spraying.
Today I would describe my life as follows:

I am confident, happy, secure and having hair is “special”, people who have had hair always do not know how it feels not
to. Christine to me is special, so professional and understanding to my needs.

She has made me feel beautiful.

(Through illness Jackie’s hair loss started with diffuse hair loss. However as previously mentioned it is possible to have more than one condition of hair loss at the same time. Jackie also has Androgenetic Alopecia).
