Have you been noticing more hair than usual on your pillow or in the shower tub? Are you worried about going bald too young? This may not be a fantasy. Luckily, The Dermo Lab has reached out to the dermatologist and cosmetologist Dr. Eissan Ragab, who reveals all the causes and possible hair loss treatments, so you can pay more attention to your crowning glory.
Now, if you’ve been neglecting your hair lately, it’s time to break that bad habit. Read on!
What are the reasons for hair loss at an early age?
There are many possible reasons why younger generations are noticing hair loss at an earlier age. Diet, stress, and hair treatments are among the most common causes of hair loss in young men and women.
- Diet. Diet can strongly influence hair health, as the growing popularity of vegetarian and vegan diets may contribute to hair loss.
- Stress. Higher stress levels in younger generations can interrupt the hair growth process, resulting in greater hair loss.
- Hair treatments. Excessive bleaching and dyeing can cause serious damage to the hair. According to Dr. Eissan Ragab, the presence of ammonia in the formulation can cause hair loss.
Other reasons include:
- Anorexia or bulimia
- Major surgery
- Autoimmune conditions, such as lupus
- Thyroid disorders
- Trichotillomania, a hair-pulling disorder
Dr. Eissan Ragab states that certain habits can promote hair breakage and hair loss, such as brushing your hair when it is wet or tying it up firmly. She explains that one tight hairstyle won’t harm your hair, but after several years, traction alopecia can lead to permanent hair loss. She adds that it’s healthy to brush your hair, but sometimes it can be harmful, depending on the tools you use and the way you brush.
What is the best hair loss treatment?
After taking a glance at the causes of hair loss, it’s time to reveal the most effective ways to address this problem. So, what can you do to fight hair loss?
1- Wash your hair with a gentle shampoo.
Dr. Eissan Ragab indicates that the type of shampoo used and the ingredients it contains have a big impact on hair loss. It is therefore important to choose carefully the products you use on your hair.
Dr. Eissan Ragab recommends Anaphase + Anti-Hair Loss Complement Shampoo from Ducray, the world-leading hair care brand. Thanks to its nourishing formula, Anaphase+ shampoo strengthens hair and restores volume. It contains Monolaurin, a key ingredient proven to slow down hair loss. Apply to damp hair and lather, then rinse. Reapply, massage the scalp for 2 to 3 minutes and rinse thoroughly.
2- Eat a healthy diet.
Nutritional deficiencies such as iron or protein deficiencies might cause hair loss. So, we recommend you start taking supplements enriched with essential nutrients which will help promote healthy hair growth.
Ducray Anacaps Food Supplements are the perfect solution as they strengthen the hair and restore vitality to the hair bulb. These food supplements contain ultra-targeted nutrient combinations to fight against hair loss, stimulate hair growth and act as antioxidants. The key to achieving the best results? Be consistent with the pills and commit to taking them daily for at least three months.
3- Use hair growth products
Hair growth products do not only treat hair loss but also boost healthy, shiny hair.
If your hair loss is temporary, due to stress or a restrictive diet, for example, we recommend you try Ducray Creastim Anti-Hair Loss Lotion, which curbs hair fall, stimulates hair growth, and strengthens hair. This lotion also stimulates the microcirculation of the scalp and provides the hair bulbs with the necessary energy components. Only 1 month after using it, you will notice that your hair is dense and healthy again.
Ducray Neoptide Anti-Hair Loss Lotion is another lotion specially designed to address chronic hair thinning. This lightweight spray nourishes and supports devitalized hair. Its effectiveness is proven after three months of use. Ducray has launched two types of Neoptide lotion to treat hair loss in men and women respectively: Neoptide Anti-Hair Loss Lotion for Men and Neoptide Anti-Hair Loss Lotion for Women, one of the best hair loss treatments for females suffering from chronic hair loss.
4- Stop smoking.
Smoking causes inflammation throughout the body, which can make hair loss worse.
5- Brush your hair gently.
Pulling on your hair while brushing or using the wrong hairbrush can lead to hair loss.
6- Limit your use of curling and flat irons.
Try to use it only on special occasions, as they heat and damage your hair.
7- Avoid tight hairstyles.
Pulling back your hair in a bun, ponytail, or pigtail can cause a type of hair loss called traction alopecia. Eventually, anything that pulls on the hair can lead to permanent hair loss.
The bottom line
Generally, we think of baldness as a problem that affects older men, but there are many types and causes of hair loss that can affect anyone, regardless of age or gender, at any time.

If you want to improve your hair, stay consistent. Remember, you only live once. You might as well live with awesome hair. Take the time to nourish your hair and get the beautiful curls you desire. Stay positive and avoid stress, this will help complement your hair treatment plan.
