Hair loss : Undoubtedly, hair is one of the features that show the most obvious differences between people and add beauty and attractiveness. Containing a type of keratin, the hair consists of three different layers: cuticle, cortex and medulla. Its color, shape and length are different from person to person and it adds a beautiful aesthetic in harmony with all other body structures of the person. Along with this aesthetic beauty in themselves, people change the appearance of their hair in line with their own taste and liking, and gain an image and aesthetic structure that differentiates them from other people.

Therefore, a hair loss that occurs can change a person’s life completely, and the person can give all his density to restore his hair.
Causes of Hair Loss
Hair loss can develop due to many reasons. These are generally as follows;

- Diffuse alopecia – What we call diffuse alopecia is the generalized or global hair loss that occurs widely on the entire scalp of the person. It is usually not noticed until very severe hair loss occurs. The course of diffuse alopecia is variable and it can be progressively or periodically increasing depending on the cause.
- Alopecia areata – alopecia areata appears as small circular craters with clear borders and without any previous symptoms. From time to time, it is manifested by the loss of all scalp hair and even other hairs on the whole body.

- Traumatic alopecia – Traction (pulling) or traumatic alopecias arise from various and different types of physical and chemical injuries. This type of hair loss can be acute or chronic.
- Infections and infestations – This type of hair loss is caused by various microorganisms (fungi, bacteria or viruses) and lice, directly or indirectly, by finishing the hair shaft or disrupting the functions of the hair follicles. This type of hair loss is evaluated according to the specific cause.
- Hair shaft abnormalities that cause alopecia – This type of hair loss is divided into four groups: breaks, irregularities, curls or coils, and foreign substances affecting the hair shaft. All these are factors that affect this type of shedding.
