The gradual thinning of hair and its eventual fall as clumps send shockwaves through your body. But that is not a cause of concern or panic anymore because science has got an answer and Oliva has got the best solution to treat it. Most of the time, hair loss occurs based on the condition of physical or emotional well-being but there is enough help available at Oliva to take care of that.
- GENETIC HAIR LOSS (MEN)
GENETIC HAIR LOSS IN MEN
The two types of hair loss seen among men is hair thinning known as Alopecia and Balding known as Androgenetic Alopecia which is caused primarily due to hormones and genes.
Balding usually begins at the sides of both temples and eventually the hairline recedes to form a ‘M’ shape. Simultaneously, the hair also begins to thin at the crown (top of the head) and it lands into partial or complete baldness.

GENETIC HAIR LOSS IN WOMEN
Balding is a common phenomenon in women as well and it is otherwise called as Androgenetic Alopecia. Studies reveal that nearly 40% of women tend to show signs of balding when they reach the age of 50. Hair thinning is of different types such as hair shedding or reduction of hair volume or a combination of both.
Genetic hair loss is also linked to Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) which leads to excess body hair, weight gain and irregular menstruation but in reality, it is caused mainly by the hormonal imbalance.
- DIFFUSE HAIR LOSS
DIFFUSE HAIR LOSS (TELOGEN EFFLUVIUM)
Telogen Effluvium is that hair condition which leads to typical reduction of pony tail volume and excessive hair shedding. This is a temporary hair loss which occurs due to diffuse shedding of resting hair when a body experiences a shock. When such a thing happens, an individual tends to lose nearly 100-125 hairs per day. Due to this, nearly 70% of active hair also known as Anagen hair gets into the zone of resting hair known as telogen hair which results in a sizeable quantity of hair being pushed out of the scalp.
- PATCHY HAIR LOSS
PATCHY HAIR LOSS (ALOPECIA AREATA)
This is another hair condition where hair falls in round patches. This is usually found on the scalp or sometimes on the body but this is not contagious. This is caused due to an abnormality in the immune system and the hair follicles get attacked which leads to hair loss.
