There are several types of hair loss and it can happen to anyone at any point of time. The causes of hair loss are different due to gender, age, genetics, diet (malnutrition, anorexia), environmental factors (stress, pollutants, chemicals, etc.) and health conditions (thyroid disorders, autoimmunity, anaemia, etc.).
There are also several types of treatments available, from western medication, hair transplant, homeopathy to even hypnosis. Countless clinical trials and researches had been done in search of finding the cure for hair loss and, of which, acupuncture has shown high efficacy in restoring hair health. One study even mentioned that the combination of acupuncture and plum blossom hammer outperformed the combination of Minoxidil and multivitamins in treating alopecia. Similar to western treatment, it would take a few months of TCM treatments to see significant and long lasting results, though without the side effects.
