Still thinking of hair loss only tends to be associated with advancing age? This is in fact a myth!
Depending on the condition, it can happen at any age. It is perhaps unsurprising to find that millennials are more worried about losing their hair, and more likely to proactively seek help in dealing with hair loss than previous generations.
TCM practitioners at Yong Kang TCM Clinic believe that the condition of our hair is a direct reflection of the condition of our blood, spleen, liver, and kidneys. Hair will grow well if there is sufficient blood in the body, and blood in the body is governed by the spleen and the liver. A well-functioning spleen and liver will allow healthy hair growth and shine. Besides that, the kidneys govern the essence of the body, and this kidney essence is needed to keep one’s hair black. Weakened kidney ‘qi’ and a lack of essence may cause hair to turn grey.
Therefore, by looking at a person’s hair, a TCM practitioner can get an idea of a person's overall health. In TCM, hair loss can be divided into two main types, Sudden Hair Loss (alopecia) or Gradual Hair Loss (thinning hair). Each type can even divide into different clinical patterns. Let’s take a look at several of these patterns!
Sudden hair loss: Blood heat generating wind pattern
More common in adolescents. Since young people are full of vigor and vitality, they have a tendency towards blood heat. If they are habitually irritable or easily angered, this can lead to blood heat. Blood heat generates wind, which stirs the leaves to drop (causes the hair to fall out). The scalp may have slight itching, there may be headaches. The tongue is red with a scanty coating, the pulse is thin, wiry, and rapid. The treatment method is cooling the blood and dispelling the wind.
Sudden hair loss: Qi and blood deficiency pattern
Common after a serious illness or postpartum. Because qi and blood cannot ascend, hair is not developed. The treatment method is to strongly build qi and blood.
Gradual hair loss: Damp-heat steaming upward pattern
Due to sweet, rich, fatty food, the spleen and stomach fail to transform and transport. Damp-heat in the interior is generated, and steam rises. The scalp is greasy and sticky, the hair roots are loose, there is itching and the hair falls in clusters. The tongue is red with a greasy yellow coat, the pulse is slippery and rapid. The treatment method is to manage dampness and clear heat.
Gradual hair loss: Liver and kidney deficiency pattern
More common in middle-aged people who overthink, and work day and night. The hair is yellow and dull, or white. There are dizziness and sore back and knees. The tongue is crimson and lacking a coating, the pulse is thin and rapid.
