The spots start as around the size of a coin but expand and connect with each other enlarging the zone. Often, hair loss from them might reverse if acted promptly.
The main cause for the appearance of bald spots on the scalp is an autoimmune disorder. Due to various circumstances, your body falsely believes it is under attack.
An immediate defensive reaction ensues which should attack the disease, but since there isn’t any, it ends up attacking your own cells. And just so happens that your hair follicles are structures that are part of those cells.
How To Fight Bald Spots
There are several ways to deal with bald spots ranging from lifestyle changes to hairstyles and even surgery. Consider each one of them while trying to figure out how to deal with your problem.
Perpetual psychological stress can affect your body’s health in many ways, hair loss being one of the more noticeable ones. Severe stress is enough to trigger an autoimmune response that results in hair loss.
Also, the condition ‘trichotillomania’ compels the anxious and stressed to pull their hair. Due to the constant pulling, the hair is eventually ripped, and the follicle damaged permanently, ceasing to grow.
To reduce stress:
- Walk away from stressing situations of which you have little control over.
- Schedule regular rest periods.
- Sleep six to eight hours every night.
Those changes will not only help you fight bald spots but also elevate your quality of life substantially.
Adopt a diet consisting of protein and vitamin B. Eggs, meats, leafy vegetables, and legumes are some of the most easily found.
If You Smoke, Cease It
