Hair Loss Male/Female

Hair loss can be caused by number of things. The most common cause of hair loss is a hereditary condition that happens with ageing. This condition is called androgenic alopeciamale-pattern baldness and female-pattern baldness.

It’s normal to lose hair. We can lose between 50 and 100 hairs a day, often without noticing. But more than 50 percent of all men over the age of 50 will be affected by male pattern baldness to some extent. Each hair on your head has a growth cycle. With male pattern baldness, this growth cycle begins to weaken and the hair follicle shrinks, producing shorter and finer strands of hair. Eventually, the growth cycle for each hair ends and no new hair grows in its place.

Male pattern baldness can begin in your teenage years, but it more commonly occurs in adult men, with the likelihood increasing with age. Genetics plays a big role. Men who have close relatives with male pattern baldness are at a higher risk. This is particularly true when their relatives are on the maternal side of the family.

Although hair loss may seem like a more prominent problem in men, women are nearly as likely to lose, or have thinning, hair. Most women notice it in their 50s or 60s, but it can happen at any age and for a variety of reasons. Female pattern baldness, is hair loss that affects women. It’s similar to male pattern baldness, except that women can lose their hair in a different pattern than men. Hair loss in women is normal, especially as you age. Up to two-thirds of women experience hair loss after menopause.

Hair loss can lead to a variety of psychological difficulties and have a negative impact on quality of life. Loss of self-confidence, lowered self-esteem, and heightened self-consciousness are common responses to hair loss, particularly for women.
