It’s difficult to differentiate between broken short hairs and new growth short hairs with normal eyes. New hair will generally be in the same growth phase and length.
What does new growth hair look like?
Shadow. Those with dark hair may be able to distinguish a shadow or dark spots in their hair follicles. The shadow is caused by the color pigment cells and the hair shaft under the skin, indicating hair follicles have entered a new growing phase by reforming and start creating the hair root bulb.
Fuzz. Despite the sparse, weak and discolored presence of the fuzz, it indicates the future growth. Due to slow color pigment formation, fuzz is often colorless or very light.
Fine, Short Growth. During this phase, the new growth is very fragile which requires gentle care.
Substantial Growth. Hair becomes more sturdy a few months after the first signs of growth. According to the U.S Center of Disease Control, scalp hair grows at an average of 1.25 cm per month.
Are you having excessive hair loss?
Hair loss happens to everyone. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, a person normally loses an average of 50 to 100 hairs every day.
Hair has a programmed life cycle: growth phase, rest phase and shedding phase. Hairs start to fall out when they are pushed to the shedding phase. At any given time, most hair is actively growing. When the number of hairs shed outpace the number of actively growing hairs, hair loss occurs. It takes months for hair to grow back and the growth does not always look encouraging.
Thinning hair and hair loss happen to both women and men with various reasons ranging from the simple and temporary, like vitamin deficiency, to the more complex, like an underlying health condition.
Sudden traumas. After a really stressful event such as any kind of physical traumasurgery, a car accident, or a severe illness, hair cycle can be shocked which pushes more hair into the shedding phase and causes temporary hair loss. Hair loss often becomes noticeable three-to-six months after the trauma.
Emotional stress. Poor blood circulation prohibits your hair roots from receiving nutrients which leads to blocked arteries and forces the hair to fall off at an unusual pace.
Hormonal Changes. Hormonal changes and imbalances during pregnancy, childbirth or menopause can cause temporary hair loss.
Heredity. About two out of three men experience hair loss by age 60, and most of the time it’s due to male pattern baldness. This type of hair loss, caused by a combo of genes and male sex hormones, usually follows a typical pattern begins at the hairline then gradually recedes at the temples, forming an M-shape.
Female-pattern hair loss, called androgenic or androgenetic alopecia, is basically the female version of male pattern baldness. There is also a genetic component. You are more likely to have hair loss at a certain age if there is a pattern in women in your family.
Medications. Hair loss can be caused by drugs used for cancer, arthritis, depression, heart problems, high blood pressure and birth control. Excessive intake of vitamin A may cause hair loss as well.
Dieting and Poor Nutrition. Low protein, iron stores, low vitamin D and calcium can cause hair loss. You should balance your diet with rich needed vitamins rather than taking nutritional supplements.
A study published in Clinical and Experimental Dermatology found that excessive levels of supplements can actually cause hair loss and should not be used unless there is an actual deficiency.
Oily scalp. A good oil balance throughout your hair is key in keeping your hair intact. Hair follicles can fall apart if there is an excessive oil build up in your scalp. Genetics, type of food you consume, and irregular sleeping patterns all distribute to oily scalp.
