The American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) states the average human can shed between 50-100 single strands of hair per day. Hair shedding is an entirely normal process which allows new hair to grow in. Although in some cases, imbalances within the body can cause hair to excessively fall or or not grow back entirely.

Before we discuss what causes hair loss, we first need to understand how hair grows.


  • 1st phase: Anagen Phase – also known as the growing phase – lasts between two to eight years
  • 2nd phase – Catagen Phases – also known as the transition phase – the shrinking period of hair follicles which usually lasts between two to three weeks
  • 3rd phase – Telogen Phase – also known as the resting phase – this phase describes the two to four month period in which hair falls off.

*Keep in mind, shorter hairs such as eyelashes and eyebrows, typically have a shortened anagen phase in comparison to hair typically found on the scalp.

To help complete the cycle, as hair falls out, the anagen phase should start again, but this may not always be the case. This is why hair loss is very common. Hair loss is caused by many different factors.



There are three types of hair loss.

  1. Anagen effluvium – This type of hair loss is caused by medications and is the most rapid type of hair loss. The most common medication for hair loss is chemotherapy. On a positive note, when medication or treatment is completed, hair regrowth is possible.
  2. Telogen effluvium – When too many hair follicles are within the telogen phase an abundant amount of hair tends to fall out simultaneously. Those who experience a sudden emotional or physical shock, extreme stress, hormonal changes, or a serious illness, typically experience this type of hair loss.
  3. Androgenetic alopecia – Those who experience this type of hair loss typically see hair loss at the top and sides of the head. This is the most common type of hair loss for both men and women and is linked to heredity. For example, female hairlines may widen as well as thin in certain areas. On the other hand, males may experience baldness around their temples and crown of the head, creating a “M” shape.
  4. Alopecia areata – This type of hair loss is associated with one’s own body attacking itself. Autoimmune diseases may cause bald patches to develop and may even cause complete hair loss. Those who experience this type of hair loss tend to experience hair loss for their eyebrow and eyelashes.
  5. Tinea capitis – Some fungal infections have a major effect on the scalp and hair shaft. Typically this type of hair loss is commonly experienced with a dry, scaly, and itchy scalp.
  6. Traction alopecia – Tension and pressure caused by certain types of tight hair styles such as braids, ponytails and buns, often cause hair to weaken, thin, and all out.

Denville Medical and Sports Rehabilitation Center offers safe, natural and successful treatment options to regrow hair.


PRP therapy – PRP (platelet-rich plasma) therapy involves drawing your own blood, processing it, then injecting it into the problem area. Within the processing phase, the highest concentration of your body’s nutrient rich plasma is separated from less optimal materials. The nutrient rich concentration is then injected into those areas affected by hair loss and thinning to stimulate hair regrowth and thickness.


Mesenchymal cell therapy, (commonly known as Exosome therapy) – This frontier in aesthetic medicine has helped develop successful methods on a cellular level.These biologic cells help other cells catalyze and become superior in their processes.They have a lipid membrane structure which allows them to link to other cells and in combination, increase protein concentration and microRNAs to super fuel cells.


Vitamin IV Therapy – The right mixture and amount of vitamins, minerals, and amino acids can actively help with the regrowth of hair. Vitamin B7, also known as Biotin, Iron, Vitamin C, Vitamin D, and Zinc work together intravenously to deliver natural resources powerfully and directly into the bloodstream providing the most optimal results in comparison to the more common and less effective oral delivery.
