How do you detect hair loss at an early stage at home?
在家中如何判斷出現早期脫髮?

The average person loses between 40-120 strands a day. Know your normal amount of hair loss a day and use it as a base line to detect any abnormal hair loss. If you normally lose 40 strands a day and you are suddenly shedding more, you might be starting to have hair loss problems. Also, you can do a pull test. By pulling about 60 strands, you should notice less than 10 strands coming off. Anything more than that may indicate a hair loss problem. These two simple home care methods can tell early signs of hair loss before you see any thinning at your parting or crown or any receding hairline.

一般情況下,每人每天會掉40至120條頭髮左右。但你需要先了解你每天的正常脫髮量,並以此作為基線來檢測任何不正常的脫髮。假設你通常每天只會掉40條頭髮,但掉髮數量突然大量增加,你可能開始有脫髮的問題了。除此之外,你也可以做一個拉力測試。用手拉住大約60條頭髮,拉至髮尾後,若脫落的頭髮超過10條,便意味著你有脫髮的危機。這兩種簡單的家中檢測方法可以讓你在出現頭髮稀疏、頭頂或髮際線變稀薄之前,發現早期脫髮的跡象。

脫髮可以被治療嗎?

As trichologist Dr David Kingsley says, “In almost all cases (hair loss), you can get improvement, even if it’s just stopping hair loss… And about 80% of the time, regrowth is a possibility.” With the rapid advancement in technology, there are now more safe and effective treatment options to minimize hair loss and boost hair growth e.g. supplements, scalp and hair treatments, LLLT, laser therapy, micro-needling, mesotherapy, some FDA approved treatments and Regenera Activa. Hair transplants are another option if you your hair loss is concentrated in specific areas.

正如毛髮專家DrDavid Kingsley所說:「幾乎所有的脫髮問題都能被改善,甚至是制止脫髮。80%的情況下,頭髮會重新生長。」隨著技術迅速發展,有更多安全而有效的方案可以選擇,專門解決脫髮問題和促進頭髮再生。例如補充劑、頭皮及頭髮護理療程、LLLT、激光治療、微針,以及一些食品及藥物管理局(FDA)認證的療程和Regenera Activa 細胞再生技術。如果你的脫髮問題集中在特定區域,頭髮移植也是一種解決方案。

Can clogged follicles cause hair loss?
毛囊阻塞會導致脫髮嗎?

Dead skin, sweat, oil, dirt and chemical irritation can clog hair follicles. If untreated, these can lead to inflammation and infection causing folliculitis. Folliculitis can be treated with medications, antibacterial topical products and for stubborn cases laser treatments. If left untreated, folliculitis can lead to permanent damage of the follicles resulting in scarring hair loss.
