Hair loss – is a problem for every 8 out of 10 people. Every day we shed around 80-100 strands, but the same number of hairs grow at the same time. So normally, we shouldn’t be noticing any dramatic changes in hair consistency. But what if amongst 80 broken strands, only 60 grow back?

The slow progression of the lack of 20 hairs in a day compounds daily, and you may start noticing hair thickness. If not taken care of, the same progression leads to baldness in individuals. And once you go bald, re-growth of hair becomes difficult.

But during progression, there are defined stages of baldness, and the extreme one is designated as the Point of No Return. In this article, we are going to understand the stages of baldness.

Stage 1
Individuals at this stage may experience little to no signs of baldness or a receding hairline and have heads full of hair.

Stage 2

At this stage, one starts noticing excessive hair loss, generally around the temples in men.

Stage 3
Specifically, in men, the hairline starts pulling back from the temples, giving it a curved “M” shape. In some cases, the hair may also be shed from the crown of the head, leaving a small bald spot.

Stage 4
By this stage, an individual sees significant hair loss as the hairline recedes further. The bald spot on the crown enlarges.

Stage 5
The progression of hair loss continues further towards the back of the head, and the rest of the hair becomes thinner than earlier.

Stage 6
At this stage, the individual is mostly bald on the front and top of the head. Further, the two bald sections meet, leaving no patch of hair in between.

Stage 7
This is the final stage at which the remaining hair on the sides of the head fades away, and an individual goes completely bald.

So what do you think is the point of no return in hair loss?

According to my research, the point of no return is Stage 7, as before the underlying conditions can be sorted out, by slowly strengthening the remaining hair follicles, or undergoing a hair transplant procedure, and maintaining hair are still possible.

Moreover, you may have many questions in your mind regarding hair balding, so we shall further, discuss some of them.

Is my hair thinning or am I going bald?
Before going deep into this question, there are a few things you need to ask yourself.

1. Is hair loss genetic?
Look into the hair loss history of your family. Finding out if you are genetically predisposed to baldness is the first step in figuring out if you are bald. Men’s patterns Baldness is often a genetic problem.

2. Where is the hair loss?
A receding hairline or hair loss that is concentrated in the crown region may be an indicator of balding. A more erratic pattern or equally distributed hair loss is typically a sign of hair thinning. If your hair appears to be thinning in patches, you might have alopecia, a condition that causes a person to lose patches of hair.

3. Is your hair loss related to stress?
Men and women alike may experience hair loss as a result of excessive stress. Many individuals are unaware of the physical effects stress can have on their bodies. Extreme daytime weariness and hair loss can result from prolonged, high levels of stress. The first thing to do if you start to notice your hair thinning is to reduce your stress.

4. What’s your age?
Your hair is likely thinning if you are approaching retirement age because this is a common sign of aging. Additionally, hair thinning is also a common symptom among women who are close to menopause. However, hair loss could indicate balding if you are younger than 35.

So, I hope that most of your questions about baldness are answered above. At any point in time, you have an option. If completely bald, you can opt for hair transplantation, or if in any stage in between, you can always reverse it by using natural ayurvedic therapies for hair loss.

In my experience of over 15 years, I have observed patterns of baldness and baldness due to some underlying issues. I have been treating people using holistic medicinal forms. The initial stages of balding are signs that you have to wake up and take measures to avoid the point of no return.
