Thinning hair and bald patches are a common complaint in men and women.
We lose hair throughout our life. It happens inconspicuously during the course of brushing the hair, taking a shower and hair drying etc. . Healthy people normally lose about 50 to 100 hairs a day. The scalp normally has 100,000 hairs and the normal amount of hair loss does not cause any visible thinning of the scalp hair. Our hair constantly go through normal hair growth cycles and new hair take the place of the one’s that are lost. However, during the course of ageing or heredity tendency, our hair become gradually thinner.
Occasionally hair loss may be a sign of a serious medical issue that may require evaluation and diagnosis by a specialist.
Excessive hair loss can be caused by:
- Genetic predisposition.
- Hormonal disorders.
- Side effects of medication.
- High Blood pressure.
- Excessive hair styling.

Blood contains high concentration of Platelets. Platelets contain high concentrations of growth factors. These growth factors have a stimulating and repairing effect on the growth and maintenance of cells and hence cause hair follicles to grow and revitalise them.
