Hair Transplant & Restoration Center

Hair follicles cells are some of the fastest growing cells in your body (making them especially susceptible to chemotherapy drugs which act on rapidly dividing tumor cells), and it is because the cell division is so rapid that the hair follicle cells specifically need an abundant nutritional supply.

Can Medications Cause Hair Loss?

Hair Transplant & Restoration Center

The answer is “yes”.  Some medications CAN lead to hair loss, called Telogen Effluvium.

It’s a staggering number, considering how little hair loss is talked about in women and the social stigma compared with men.

Shedding: Telogen Effluvium or Androgenetic Alopecia?

Hair Transplant & Restoration Center

Shedding, both normal (60-100 hairs per day depending on washing frequency) and increased (in the early days of onset androgenetic alopecia and telogen effluvium) is common knowledge to the majority of us.
