Hair growth occurs in cycles that generally last for around 2 to 3 years. During this time, each hair grows an estimated 1cm per month, with roughly 90% of the hair on your scalp growing and the remaining 10% in a resting phase at any moment in time. It takes 3 to 4 months for the resting hair to fall out of your scalp and for new hair to begin replacing it.
This cycle means that it is completely normal to shed some hair each day. However, some men, women and children can experience heavy hair loss that does not correlate with this cycle.
Alopecia’ is the medical term for hair loss. Hairlogica is proud to have treated thousands of patients- men, women and children- with alopecia totalis, which is a condition that causes loss of hair all over the scalp and body, including eyebrows. Alopecia aeratus, on the other hand, is when someone experiences hair loss in patches, often in 20 cent sized pieces all over the scalp.
Over the years, Hairlogica is proud to have assisted thousands of young children with a number of hair loss conditions.
One of our most recent patients was living with damaged follicles and complete hairloss due to undergoing severe chemotherapy. With the help of our therapists, she has been able to experience a full head of hair once again.
