and bad diet have devastating effects on one’s body and usually
manifests itself in the hair cycle. Stress becomes a part of our
daily life styles. The hair shaft provides very important clues to
disorders such as congenital defects, external damage to the hair,
general illness, and areas which may be developing baldness. Fungal
infections of the scalp will often be detected at the hair shaft.
Seborrheic dermatitis is a fluctuating complaint often aggravated by
emotional stress. Unless the underlying cause is found and the
problem treated, this can also contribute to hair loss. (See scalp

loss in females can begin as early as puberty. Although these changes are
hormone dependant they should not be confused with development of
pattern baldness. Hormonal imbalances
can be the cause of noticeable thinning
in teenagers. The rapid changes the body is undergoing from
child to womanhood can play havoc with the hormonal system and in
turn affect the hair growth system. If the hair loss were to
continue or become excessive or diffuse, hormone levels should be
checked. This is a very stressful time in a young girl’s life.

is a type of hair loss most common in women. The hair tends to
become thinner rather than making bald patches.
One will not see a shiny patch without hair. It is more
likely that every other hair is missing. This usually occurs across
the top of the head and near the front (rarely on the sides.) This
progressive hair loss can be both gradual or intermittent and you
may notice hair becoming less manageable. 25% of Caucasian women
who have reached their forties experience thinning and recession.
The percentage increases as women head towards their fifties. 50%
of fifty plus women have thinning hair. The degree of loss
seldom reaches that of male pattern baldness.
Fantastique’s Wonder Hair Intensive Treatment Program has
achieved great success in arresting excessive hair loss and helping
to regain hair lost over the years. This has been achieved in all
ages including an eighty year old great grandmother. The hair loss
will take approximately six weeks to slow down to a normal cycle
and new hairs can start to appear in as soon as four weeks. It is
important to note that visible signs of thickening will take place
once the new hairs start to gain in length.

stress can be the result of an acute illness, high fever, trauma,
an accident or injury, or surgery, particularly when there is
severe blood loss or shock. The stress causes a number of follicles
to change suddenly from the anegen or growing stage into
the telogen phase.
Two to four months later, following the normal cyclic pattern,
diffuse shedding of hair begins. The amount of hair loss varies,
but hair loss will continue for six weeks even if stress does not
continue. When diffuse hair loss arises as a result of prolonged
stress, it is probably the increased production of the adrenal
gland hormone. Physiological stress will register in the
hypothalamus which in turn can bring about :
increase in the production of adrenaline through its effect of
stress on the sympathetic nervous system. In other words, the
woman’s body increases the production of adrenal gland hormones.
This causes diffuse hair loss.

loss can be experienced by females due to unprofessional use of
chemicals by uninformed operators. Unless the harshness of
chemicals is properly understood, devastating consequences like
root damage and hair breakage can occur. High pH alkaline products
such as relaxers with a pH exceeding 15 can result in scalp burns
which in turn can result in scarring alopecia. In some instances
this can cause permanent damage, depending on the thickness of the
lesions. Immediate treatment on the weeping scars can result in
hair growth recovery.Hair Fantastique's Anti-Dandruff Shampoo and
Coal Tar Healing Salve both contain an anti-fungal and antiseptic,

minimising of scarring and infections. See scalp treatments and

Braiding and extensions which weigh the hair down cause stress on
the hair which will, in time, result in hair loss. It is important
