Understanding the causes of hair loss is an essential way of dealing with the situation and responding to a concern that affects millions of people around the world.

When you discover or come to realize the reason for hair loss, you also come to understand why one solution is more effective than another. Is hair treatment using Minoxidil more effective than hair treatment using Finasteride, for example?

Is FUE - Follicular Unit Extraction hair transplantation not only the most effective solution but also the most definitive? 

At Master Group, you'll find a range of hair treatments that could be the solution for you. However, we can only recommend the most effective treatment once we have understood the causes of your hair loss.


What is Hair Loss?

The answer may seem obvious to you, but you would be wrong. Hair loss is more than just the loss of strands of hair.

In fact, it's perfectly normal for people to lose between 50 and 100 strands of hair every day!

The cause of this type of hair loss is perfectly natural and occurs regardless of gender or age. The problem is when hair loss becomes excessive, going far beyond this number.

Moreover, different causes of hair loss can cause hair shedding, concentrated in certain areas of the scalp, alerting you to potential health problems.

Finally, it's also important to understand how the hair cycle works. Whatever the cause of hair loss, the truth is that the interruption of this cycle causes the hair to stop growing.

In this sense, the hair life cycle follows three phases: anagen (growth), catagen (transition), and telogen (resting or falling out). Hair loss can happen in any of the three phases and the hair treatment required will vary depending on the cause.


Main Causes of Hair Loss

The causes of hair loss can be very diverse. Even so, there are some that are more common than others. In this sense, the main causes of hair loss include:


Alopecia is a condition that can occur in any hairy area of ​​the body and is characterized by hair loss.


Baldness, also known as androgenetic alopecia, whether female or male, is one of the most common causes of hair loss in both men and women. The condition can be triggered by a combination of different factors, both genetic and hormonal.

Hormonal Changes

hormonal changes in the body, particularly those that are substantial and occur at different times of life (pregnancy, postpartum, menopause or andropause, for example) can lead to hair.

Lack of Nutrients

A diet poor in certain nutrients such as iron, proteins, zinc, and other vitamins can also cause hair loss.


Some infections, especially those affecting the scalp, such as ringworm, can also weaken hair and cause it to fall out.


Factors such as chronic stress can also cause hair loss, albeit temporarily.

Other Illnesses, Treatments, or Medications

There are some conditions that can affect hair production and hair loss, as well as treatments or medications whose effects can also include more hair shedding.

Generally speaking, these are the main causes of hair loss. Knowing them is essential in order to better understand your specific case, but also to prescribe the most appropriate treatment. 

However, even if you are aware of all the causes of hair loss, it is equally important to know how to recognize the moment when hair loss becomes excessive. 

To do this, it's also important to know the symptoms of hair loss.


Symptoms of Hair Loss

Just as there are various causes of hair loss, there are also some symptoms that you should pay attention to.

For example, some of the most common signs of hair loss include an abnormally high amount of hair on the pillow, bath, or comb.

Note that it's normal for a person to lose around 100 strands of hair every day. It's when hair loss goes well beyond this number that you should be concerned.

In addition to this symptom, you should also pay attention to thinning hair, bald areas on the scalp, receding frontal hairlines, or any sensations of discomfort in a particular area of the head.

Finally, it should be emphasized that the symptoms of hair loss can vary from person to person and that hair loss can be progressive or temporary, depending on the associated causes.


Does Hair Loss Differ between Men and Women?

Yes, hair loss manifests itself differently between men and women. For example, men are more prone to male pattern baldness, characterized by a receding hairline and thinning hair on the top of the head. 

In women, hair loss tends to be characterized by diffuse loss throughout the scalp. 

However, in both cases, it is essential to identify the underlying cause of hair loss in order to tailor the most effective treatment.

Hair Loss Treatment - FUE Hair Transplants

Because hair loss can have many causes, the treatment options available are also varied. 

Naturally, the most appropriate treatment depends on the underlying cause, the extent of the hair loss, and its progression.

There are treatments such as minoxidil and finasteride that can help slow or stop hair loss with proven results.

However, if you are looking for a truly effective solution to your hair loss, FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) hair transplants may be the ideal solution. 

This is one of the most advanced and modern approaches to treating hair loss. The innovative technique involves the precise extraction of individual follicular units from a donor area of the body and their transplantation into the recipient area: the scalp.

Suitable for both men and women, FUE hair transplantation is a minimally invasive procedure with natural, long-lasting results and a relatively short recovery period. 

If you want to regain hair density and a complete hairline, FUE hair transplantation could be the ideal solution for you.
