Loose Anagen Syndrome
Loose anagen syndrome, which most commonly presents in young children, occurs when hair that is not firmly rooted in the follicle can be pulled out easily. Most of the time, hair falls out after it has reached an arbitrary maximum length. Children with loose anagen syndrome often cannot grow hair beyond a relatively short length. The condition more commonly affects girls with blond or brown hair.
In people who have loose anagen syndrome, hair can fall out easily—even when it’s growing. For example, hair loss may accelerate overnight because of the friction of a pillow. The cause of loose anagen syndrome is unknown, though it may be related to a disorder in the hair growth cycle that prevents hair from staying in the follicle.
There are few reliable treatments, but the condition tends to improve greatly with puberty, and some medications may result in fuller hair.
People with trichotillomania pull their hair out and find it difficult to stop. This results in hair loss on the scalp or elsewhere on the body. Hair often returns if the behavior is stopped, but hair loss can be permanent if the pulling continues for many years.
The best treatment for this condition may be psychotherapy, which might include talking with a counselor about causes of stress and why you feel the urge to pull your hair. Our doctors can refer you to a psychotherapist who specializes in this condition.
It just takes a good hair transplant doctor who can help you to restore the hair. Dr. Vikas Gupta, who is known to provide the finest hair transplant in Toronto, has treated many people in the best possible way and has an amazing record of positive outcomes.
