Beautiful, silky, shiny, healthy strands of hair are what we all pray for. Instead, we get the dull, fuzzy, thinning nightmare of hair! The reason could be that, you are not as healthy as you think so. Diagnosis packages for hair loss could get you back on track with that dream hair of yours with an accurate health check up to find out the root causes of hair loss.
Hair growth happens in three phases. The first is the growing phase and it covers about 8 to 10 years. It is said that the majority of the hair’s life cycle is in this phase. The second is the transition phase which is characterised by the shrinking of the hair follicles. This lasts from 2 to 3 weeks. The final phase is resting phase and then the hair falls off.
Normally, we lose about 50 to 100 strands every day. When the rate of hair loss exceeds that, hair loss becomes a problem. Diagnosis packages for hair loss helps in detecting the cause of hair loss and the extent of the problem. With an accurate diagnosis, the problem can be cured and hair growth regained.
