Hair Loss in Children

By Dr. Raj Sidhu, Christchurch, NZ

Traction Alopecia Traction Alopecia, for example, is a condition that results in hair loss due to physical damage sustained by the hair, most commonly due to over-styling. Physical and chemical damage to the hair may occur as a direct consequence of constant curling, straightening, bleaching, dyeing, teasing and blow drying, and hair loss is most commonly expressed through thinning around the hairline or the sides of the face.  

Trichotillomania (Hair Pulling) in Children

Trichotillomania, on the other hand, is a type of hair loss that stems from a compulsion to pull out one's hair. This condition typically develops as a result of anxiety, tension or frustration, though it is not limited to such instances. For example, the child may unconsciously pull at his or her hair during study, while eating or amidst watching television. Frequently, hair loss is limited to one side of the head only; this is commonly dependent on whether the child is right-handed or left-handed. Often, parents may be unaware of their child's hair-pulling: many perceive the news as a shock, while others may have difficulty accepting the idea of their child causing themselves harm.  

What is the Cause of Hair Loss or Baldness?

There is a wide range of conditions which may cause or generate hair loss to occur, these of which include:  Sudden weight loss ● Crash dieting ● Poor nutrition ● Anorexia nervosa (an eating disorder that features a severe loss of appetite for food) ● Vitamin and/or mineral deficiency (particularly zinc and iron) ● Exposure to radiation and/or harmful UV rays Ageing ● Excess exposure to artificial hair products or styling ● Certain skin conditions  ● Hormonal abnormalities ● An under active thyroid gland ● Poor personal body care or hygiene ● Astute illness and/or fever ● Poisoning ● Poor circulation ● Trauma ● Depression ● Menopause ● Surgery ● Consuming drugs (particularly those used to treat cancer) ● Hair loss may also be caused due to a misdirected auto-immune response, in which the body's defensive systems self-destruct, or hereditary and/or emotional factors such as stress or anxiety. 

What treatments are available at the NZ Perfect Health & Beauty Clinic?

The revolutionary Healthy Hair Tonic is a powerful hair-enhancing formula designed to promote the regeneration of hair. Its success has provoked acclaim throughout Europe, Australia, New Zealand and other key places around the world over several decades. Made primarily of Himalayan herbs, the 100% natural product is suitable for men, women and children of all hair types and addresses a variety of hair problems ranging from dandruff, greasy hair and split ends to hair loss and complete baldness.Healthy Hair Tonic requires that the hair roots still be intact; if the roots are sick or  damaged in any way, hair growth is usually concluded. This situation, however, occurs quite infrequently and is generally only induced by burns or radiation exposure. In fact, the majority of bald individuals still possess intact hair roots; these only need to be activated.  

Examining Your Hair Under the Microscope  

New Zealand Perfect Health and Beauty conducts a microscopic hair analysis to determine the exact cause of your hair loss using two microscopes. With the first, the technician looks deep into the hair sample to see if there is any deformation at the root of the hair. The second microscope narrows in on a small section of your scalp to determine the density of hair growth, assess the general condition of your hair and scalp and to examine how advanced the problem has become.    

How does the Healthy Hair Tonic Work?  

The Healthy Hair Tonic can help to restore and rejuvenate your hair, in spite of any extended periods of inactivation of the hair roots. When applied to the scalp, Healthy Hair Tonic cleans, clears and unblocks hair follicles. Its potent formula works to counteract the effects of dihydrotestosterone (or DHT, an androgenic hormone known as the primary factor contributing to male-pattern baldness) on the scalp. Healthy Hair Tonic, a natural DHT inhibitor, is non-systemic, with no side effects, and exhibits equal potency in both males and females.  

As Healthy Hair Tonic is absorbed by the scalp, the hair root is allowed to re-shape and re-grow. This allows the hair follicles to rejuvenate and produce thicker and stronger hair, creating a fuller and healthier head of hair. A 100% natural, topical formula, Healthy Hair Tonic works faster than other products on the market, giving you natural, beautiful hair with no side effects and no hormones. Internationally proven but proudly New Zealand made, Healthy Hair Tonic is cruelty free and manufactured according to the strictest quality control standards. This fantastic product is backed up by unbeatable service. New Zealand Perfect Health and Beauty offers regular hair analysis. Every three months, one of our experienced consultants will check up on your progress and document your hair growth, with reference to photographs taken throughout your treatment.
