Hair falling out is a part of everyday life. In fact, it’s normal to lose as many as a 100 hairs a day as part of the usual hair growth and shedding cycle.
But at what point does normal shedding turn into actual hair loss? Hair loss due to male or female pattern baldness is a gradual process, so it can be difficult to tell if that's what you're experiencing. Especially in the early stages, the difference between shedding and hair loss tends not to be so clear cut.
If you're trying to assess what's going on with your hair, here are three hair loss symptoms that shouldn’t be ignored. If you're experiencing hair loss, answer these 3 questions to discover the right solution for your stage of hair loss.
A receding hairline, or a hairline that starts to change shape is one of the first signs of hair loss. A receding hairline is different to a maturing hair line in that it will continue to recede back and across the head, often leaving the top of the scalp exposed.
If your hairline is receding and you'd like to do something about it, solutions exist. Baldness is no longer the inevitable fate that it once used to be! A hair transplant micro-transplant can bring back your younger hairline for life. If you start to notice your hairline moving further back and you're concerned about it, book a consultation with a hair growth specialist to discuss your concerns.
Have you started to notice that your scalp is much more visible than it used to be? When styling or running your hands through your hair, you might notice that it’s not as dense as it used to be.
Thinning hair is a symptom of a changing hair growth cycle, meaning that you are losing hair faster than it's growing. Over time, this can lead to baldness.
Don't worry though, there are treatments that can stop hair loss in its tracks and bring back lost thickness at this stage. It may look as simple as taking a capsule once a day. The key to success is not leaving it too late!

Bald patches on the scalp are often an indication of Alopecia Areata, an autoimmune reaction that results in patchy hair loss on the scalp. If you notice any bald patches on your scalp, see your GP or a dermatologist for a medical diagnosis and treatment advice.
Finding the right hair loss solution
The first step in finding the right solution to help with hair loss is determining what's causing it. In the case of genetic hair loss (male or female pattern hair loss), modern solutions are very effective, but the ideal solution might depend on how advanced the hair loss is.
In the early stages, a simple prescription treatment may be all that's needed to halt hair loss and restore thickness. However, if the hairline has receded far or the crown is bare, a hair transplant micro-transplant will bring more satisfying results. These two treatments work very well combined, too.
Hair transplant micro-transplant offers a permanent solution for hair loss. The procedure uses 100% your own hair, as it's done by transplanting hairs from the back and sides of the scalp to the thinning or balding areas.
Here at Gro, our doctors redesign your hairline and restore density to blend seamlessly with the rest of your hair. The doctors have complete control over the depth, angle and direction of every hair that is implanted. Results are permanent and will continue to grow for life.
