Hair loss is a concern for both men and women. Although the number seems daunting, experts consider it normal to lose up to 100 hairs a day.

However, some diseases that can cause hair to fall in large quantities. This can happen for a period or even be a definite situation.

The doctor and specialist in hair restoration Thiago Bianco explains that there is no need to despair: many diseases can have the picture reversed, as in the case of patients undergoing cancer treatment or with alopecia areata, which is characterized as a sudden hair loss.

In cases such as androgenetic alopecia, which cannot be cured, but can be treated, the only solution when baldness already exists is hair transplantation, which removes healthy hair from the patient and transplants it to the wireless areas.
