The signs of ageing include wrinkles, the slowing down of cell renewal, grey hair and of course, hair loss. Loss of hair occurs when hair follicles stop hair growth, also known as alopecia. Through the normal hair growth cycle, we typically lose 50-100 hairs a day, however loss can be more excessive than this and many people turn to medication as a solution. Just like any other medication, there are side effects that need to be considered and weighed-up against other forms of treatment.
We discuss the main types of hair loss, the symptoms that you should consult a hair restoration specialist about, and the drawbacks of hair loss drugs.
