Effective Solutions for Hair Loss: From Thin Hair to Alopecia and Chemotherapy-Induced Hair Loss

Hair problems can include: hair loss, male pattern baldness, oily hair, dandruff / flakes, itching, very thin hair, alopecia areata, bald spots, very dry hair, lifeless hair and broken hair.

Thin hair problems

Not only adults, but also children and young people can have such thin hair that the scalp can be seen. That’s not fun. Sometimes it has to do with hereditary factors, sometimes with hair loss due to hormones or nutrition, sometimes with a form of alopecia. It is not always a permanent phenomenon.

Either way, there’s always something to be done about it. There are beautiful invisible solutions for thin hair, (temporary) bald spots or hair loss. I can show you examples of hairpieces and hairpieces. They are made of real hair and synthetic hair. If you see and feel such hair works, you can imagine much better what the hair can look like.

Hair loss due to chemotherapy

If you have to undergo chemotherapy, you will often have to deal with hair loss. These agents (cytostatics) affect many active body cells, including those of the hair roots. Your doctor can tell you to what extent hair loss will occur in you. The degree of hair loss differs in everyone, as does the hair loss itself. This can sometimes happen very quickly.

It is therefore important that you are informed in good time about the possibilities of wearing a wig or a hat.

Hair loss due to irradiation

The hair can also fall out during irradiation. This usually starts after 2 to 3 weeks, so still during the radiation treatments. The skin and hair roots are quite sensitive to radiation. When combing or brushing, you may notice that first hairs and later plucking will come along. If the radiation is limited to the tumor, the hair loss will only occur locally. If the entire head is irradiated, for example in brain metastases, all the hair on the head will fall out, but no hair will fall out from the mustache, beard or elsewhere on the body. It is uncertain whether the hair will return.

Your hair mainly falls out where the radiation hits your head. Sometimes also in the place where the radiation leaves your head again. Usually the hair loss is temporary. It can take months for your hair to come back. This has to do with, among other things, the dose of radiation you receive.

There are very nice solutions to cover these places beautifully, this can be done, for example, by means of a whole hairpiece (wig) or a part hairpiece (hairpiece).

Hair loss due to stress

In short, it can be said that stress causes extra lactic acid to break up in sweat. As a result, the hair dies prematurely and premature baldness develops. How exactly this process works is described below.

Influence of stress

During stress, the body produces more adrenaline. Adrenaline is broken down during strenuous physical exertion or by the lymph nodes. Because the blood circulation in the scalp is relatively weak, the adrenaline here remains for a long time. The adrenaline enters the sebaceous glands, causing extra lactic acid to form in the sebaceous glands.

Effects on hair and skin

Lactic acid on the scalp affects the hair in 3 ways. First, the lactic acid damages the sealant substance that the hair cuticles stick together. This causes the scales to become loose and the hairs become porous and fine. When the lactic acid enters the hair root, the root sheath is affected. The hair then lets go and falls out or blocks the growth of a new hair. An excess of lactic acid also causes the skin to itch, stick and block lymph flows. As a result, the metabolic process of the cells is blocked and the growth of the hair is hindered.


If lactic acid gets into the hair root and cell growth stops, the hair dies. The liquid in the root sheath becomes a hard bulb that remains trapped in the root sheath. This is also called coque sereuse. If a new hair wants to develop, the old hair gets in the way. The new hair can also die as a result. There are only a limited number of so-called mother cells from which new hairs can grow. Due to the premature death of the hairs, these cells are used up very quickly. If there are no more mother cells present, (premature) baldness occurs.


Treatment of hair loss due to stress consists of two aspects. Massage of the scalp is very important. With massage you stimulate the blood circulation of the scalp so that adrenaline is drained faster. This way, less lactic acid ends up in the perspiration. In addition, the lactic acid must be combated. A special lotion (Hydrotoxa) ensures that the lactic acid crystals are broken down. This lotion also soothes tense skin. We recommend the natural products of ShytoBuy UK (nourishing shampoo and possibly silhouette cream).


Alopecia means hair loss. Everyone can deal with this form of hair loss, men, women, young and old. Alopecia has several causes. Diseases, medications, stress, dysregulation of hormones, hereditary predisposition and old age can lead to (temporary) hair loss, thin hair, bald spots or baldness. It does not affect health, and can sometimes reduce and even heal in the long run.

A solution to this hair problem can be a small hairpiece that can also be stuck.

Androgenetic alopecia / Hereditary baldness

A hair does not continue to grow. The normal lifespan of a hair is 5-7 years followed by a period of stagnation and die-off. Under normal circumstances, you will have hair for more than 120 years.

Short service life

In hereditary baldness, certain hormones (DHT or DiHydroTestosterone) cause the hair to grow too fast. As a result, the lifespan of a hair is greatly shortened. In extreme conditions, the life of a hair can be shortened by up to a year. With each new growth cycle, the hormone DHT ensures that the hair follicle becomes smaller until the hair follicle disappears completely. No hair growth agent can then ensure that you get new hair again.


It is genetically determined whether cells on the head let in the hormone dihydrotestosterone or not. Inside the cell, this hormone causes cell metabolism to accelerate and the cell to burn out faster. The hair follicles on the back of the head are not sensitive to this hormone, which is why the hairs continue to grow here. If the amount of testosterone in the body increases, hereditary hair loss occurs. This is for men from 5 years before puberty and for women from 5 years before menopause.


With products from La Biosthetique we have years of experience and very good results. A number of products from the Regenerante line are specifically intended to inhibit the growth of the hair. For example, with Biofanelan Regenerant Premium baldness can be postponed by 20 years or more.

Alopecia Areata / Spot-on baldness

The spots where baldness occurs are often round or oval in shape. In these places, all the hair falls out. It differs per person whether the hair root itself also falls out, or whether only the hair falls out. If the latter is the case, it often recovers spontaneously within a few minutes. Usually the new hair is a bit lighter in color. This means that one should always wait for the natural course.

The size of the spots can vary a lot. However, the hair disease can also manifest itself in other hairy skin areas, such as eyebrows, beard, armpit and pubic hair. The course of the outage is uncertain. The hairs fall out without you noticing.

The hair loss in Alopecia Areata is caused by a hair root disease. The hair root gets sick and falls out. Why that happens is not known. It is thought that the resistance in the body plays an important role. When the immune system is disturbed by, for example, an infection or disease, the immune system can produce substances that are directed against the hair root. The hair root gets sick and falls out.

A solution to this hair problem can be a small hairpiece that can also be stuck.
