Stress, fatigue, hormonal changes or disorders, genetic predisposition, use of medicines, can cause hair weakening and hair loss
, an extremely common problem that causes serious discomfort in those affected.
Occasional hair loss is the most common form. It is characterized by a strong increase in hair loss, normally 3 months after a triggering event, which can be associated with high stress, trauma, restrictive diet, pregnancy, or simply seasonal changes. In these circumstances, up to 300 hairs can be lost per day, whereas under normal conditions, a scalp loses about 25-60 hairs per day. Hair fall can be disruptive, but these forms are reversible, although it may take up to 12 months to return to a normal condition.
Chronic hair fall is progressive, slow but continuous. In these cases, we talk about telogen effluvium and androgenetic alopecia. It is of hormonal origin, involving androgen hormones that cause a gradual miniaturization of the hair follicle, a progressive loss of hair density that becomes increasingly short, thin, and fragile.
EPTADERM has created the EPTA HAIR line to help patients deal with this impactful problem in their daily life, promoting physiological hair regrowth, contributing to slowing down hair loss and respecting the balance of the scalp, often compromised by the use of inadequate products.
