What is Demodex hair loss?

Hair loss is one of the most appalling issues that can affect anyone in any age group, and it can be more troublesome if it happens in the springtime of your life. So, we decided to talk about this widespread issue in this post. We will tell you some hair care tips for avoiding hair loss after a brief explanation about hair loss and then we will give you some tips that you should know when you are using Ungex treatment products.

Hair loss, also known as alopecia or baldness, refers to a loss of hair from part of the head or body. Typically, at least the head is involved. The severity of hair loss can vary from a small area to the entire body. In most cases, inflammation or scarring is not present but hair loss in some people causes psychological distress.

If Demodex mites population grow, hair loss will be one of their existence consequences. As a result wiping out the source, i.e. Demodex mites, becomes important.

What are the types of hair loss?

  • Common balding (androgenetic alopecia) occurs in men and women and is because of testosterone metabolites in genetically susceptible hair follicles.
  • Thyroid disease, anemia, protein deficiency, secondary syphilis, chemotherapy, and low vitamin levels may cause hair loss.
  • Alopecia areata is a form of hair loss produced by the autoimmune destruction of hair follicles in localized areas of skin.
  • Medications indicated for hair regrowth include minoxidil (Rogaine) and finasteride (Propecia).

One of the other causes of hair loss is the prominence of Demodex mites in the scalp, in which Ungex solutions are categorized.

Symptoms of Hair loss

Signs and symptoms of Hair loss may include:

1. Male-pattern baldness
2. Female-pattern baldness
3. Patchy hair loss (alopecia areata)
4. Traction alopecia

1. Gradual thinning on top of head

This is the most common type of hair loss, affecting both men and women as they age. In men, hair often begins to recede from the forehead in a line that resembles the letter M. Women typically retain the hairline on the forehead but have a broadening of the part in their hair.

2. Circular or patchy bald spots

Some people experience smooth, coin-sized bald spots. This type of hair loss usually affects just the scalp, but it sometimes also occurs in beards or eyebrows. In some cases, your skin may become itchy or painful before the hair falls out.

3. Sudden loosening of hair

A physical or emotional shock can cause hair to loosen. Handfuls of hair may come out when combing or washing your hair or even after gentle tugging. This type of hair loss usually causes overall hair thinning and not bald patches.

4. Full-body hair loss

Some conditions and medical treatments, such as chemotherapy for cancer, can result in the loss of hair all over your body. The hair usually grows back.

5. Patches of scaling that spread over the scalp

This is a sign of ringworm hair loss. It may be accompanied by broken hair, redness, swelling and, at times, oozing.

Causes of hair loss

People typically lose about 100 hairs a day. This usually doesn’t cause noticeable thinning of scalp hair because new hair is growing in at the same time. Hair loss occurs when this cycle of hair growth and shedding is disrupted or when the hair follicle is destroyed and replaced with scar tissue.

Hair loss is typically related to one or more of the following factors:

  • Family history (heredity). The most common cause of hair loss is a hereditary condition called male-pattern baldness or female-pattern baldness. It usually occurs gradually with aging and in predictable patterns — a receding hairline and bald spots in men and thinning hair in women.
  • Hormonal changes and medical conditions. A variety of conditions can cause permanent or temporary hair loss, including hormonal changes due to pregnancy, childbirth, menopause, and thyroid problems. Medical conditions include alopecia areata (al-o-PEE-she-uh ar-e-A-tuh), which causes patchy hair loss, scalp infections such as ringworm, and a hair-pulling disorder called trichotillomania (trik-o-til-o-MAY-nee-uh).
  • Medications and supplements. Hair loss can be a side effect of certain drugs, such as those used for cancer, arthritis, depression, heart problems, gout and high blood pressure.
  • Radiation therapy to the head. The hair may not grow back the same as it was before.
  • A very stressful event. Many people experience a general thinning of hair several months after a physical or emotional shock. This type of hair loss is temporary.
  • Certain hairstyles and treatments. Excessive hairstyling or hairstyles that pull your hair tight, such as pigtails or cornrows, can cause a type of hair loss called traction alopecia. Hot oil hair treatments and permanents can cause inflammation of hair follicles that leads to hair loss. If scarring occurs, hair loss could be permanent.
  • If you checked and there is no apparent cause for your hair loss, Ungex suggests that…You may have Demodex mite issues!

What are Demodex mites?

Demodex mites are microscopic parasites that live inside hair follicles and in oil glands. They are linked to many issues such as Demodex hair loss, Demodex rosacea and Demodex acne and so more.

Can Demodex mites be a reason for hair loss?

Demodex infestation can give way to different kinds of problems in the skin, scalp, and hair. This is because there is also sebum or naturally-occurring oil in the scalp. Demodex mites get nourishment from the sebum along with dead skin. By the time that a person gets the mites from being in contact to a carrier, the activity of the mites will begin; they will start to increase in growth, mate, and reproduce. In just a one follicle of hair, up to 25 mites can grow and live.

When Demodex mites are in the scalp and hair, they may cause hair loss for many reasons. For instance, the increased number of Demodex mites gets too much nourishment, leaving nothing for the hair follicles. Without the right amount of nutrition, naturally, hair will fall out. Another reason is that those parasites produce lipase so that they will be able to take in sebum. They need lipase so that they can break down sebum. Unfortunately, lipase is known to cause skin inflammation which makes hair loss worse. Also, when there are exceeding numbers of Demodex mites, the body responds to eliminate them by blocking off the follicles so that the parasites will not have any means of nourishment. Although this body response may be effective in eliminating the mites, it also results to hair loss.

Even if there are limited scientific studies to prove that Demodex mites can cause thinning of hair and baldness, many researchers believe that the possibility of hair loss goes higher when there is Demodex infestation. This is also proven to be true by those people who have used products that fight Demodex so that they can stop hair loss. Regrowth of hair occurred and the hair strands became stronger and thicker.
