Chemotherapy and Radiation

Chemotherapy drugs are powerful medications that attack rapidly growing cancer cells. Unfortunately, these drugs also attack other rapidly growing cells in your body — including those in your hair roots.

Chemotherapy may cause hair loss all over your body — not just on your scalp. Sometimes your eyelash, eyebrow, armpit, pubic and other body hair also falls out. Some chemotherapy drugs are more likely than others to cause hair loss, and different doses can cause anything from a mere thinning to complete baldness. Talk to your doctor or nurse about the medication you'll be taking. Your doctor or nurse can tell you what to expect.

Fortunately, most of the time hair loss from chemotherapy is temporary. You can expect to regrow your hair three to 10 months after your treatment ends, though your hair may temporarily be a different shade or texture.

Poor Blood Circulation

Poor Blood flow to the scalp will cause hair follicles to shrink and die. Hair sebum, perspiration become hardened crystals and block hair and becomes cause for poor blood circulation. Sebum is a carrier of DHT functioning in hair loss. Stress also becomes reasons for scalp tightening. This tends to thinning hair and hair fall. Besides arthritis and tightening neck muscles bar flow of blood to the head. Laser combs help with blood circulation. JD Royce Hair and Scalp has a unique program incorporating techniques to help improve blood flow.

Trichotillomania

The reason that people have trichotillomania (also referred to as TTM or trich) is debatable. Whatever the reason JD Royce Hair and Scalp can help. The Tricotillomania Lerning Center or trich.org gives the following description of TTM;

Trichotillomania (trick-o-til-o-MAY-nee-ah) is a disorder that causes people to pull out the hair from their scalp, eyelashes, eyebrows, pubic area, underarms, beard, chest, legs or other parts of the body, resulting in noticeable bald patches. Hair pulling varies greatly in its severity, location on the body, and response to treatment. For some people, at some times, trichotillomania is mild and can be quelled with a bit of extra awareness and concentration. For others, at times the urge may be so strong that it makes thinking of anything else nearly impossible.

Trichotillomania (also referred to as TTM or "trich") is currently defined as an impulse control disorder but there are still questions about how it should be classified. It may seem to resemble a habit, an addiction, a tic disorder or obsessive-compulsive disorder. Most recently, it is being conceptualized as part of a family of "body-focused repetitive behaviors" (BRFBs) along with skin picking and nail biting.
As we all know once hair is pulled out it takes a time to grow back. Even if the hair pulling is stopped the embarrassment of the hair loss remains for several months. JD Royce Hair and Scalp has helped many people to mask their problem allowing them to live a normal life while they work on the problem.
