Hair loss can be embarrassing for both men and women. Even though it’s often seen in men women get it too. They don’t seem to talk about it as much but that’s because it’s embarrassing to them. This talks about it and what could be causing it. Genes can but there are other reasons as well. Knowing about these could help you come to terms with hair loss. It could also help you fix it if the cause isn’t genetic.
- The majority of men and women suffer from androgenetic alopecia, which was mythologized as a genetic condition which predisposes people to hair loss.
- Both acute and chronic stress are major contributors to hair loss in men and women.
- Imbalances in diet and hormones can be major contributors to hair loss.
“The theory goes that every hair follicle on your scalp is genetically predisposed to either be susceptible or resistant to increasing levels of dihydrotestosterone as you age.”
