HAIR LOSS

Hair Loss is a common problem that affects upto 50% of the men and women in their lives. It is not a problem of old age as it was thought earlier. It is becoming more prevalent in younger generations, even as early as 20 years of age. Hair loss and thinning of hair can have significant impact on their social life. It can lead to low self esteem and loss of confidence.
The Commonest cause for hair loss is hereditary, known as androgenetic alopecia(AGA). It affects both men and women.

The incidence is higher in men and popularly known as male pattern baldness or male pattern hair loss. Male hormone testosterone gets converted into dihydrotestoterone (DHT) which is responsible for hair loss. Usually hairs in the front and top of scalp recede gradually. Hair loss is classified from grade 1 to 7 depending on the severity of baldness.

Please Note : Your hairs on the back and side of the scalp are not affected by the hormone DHT. These are permanent hairs. In case of women, hairloss is more diffuse and thinning is the predominant feature and it is known as female pattern hair loss and it can have major psychological impact on thier lives. Apart from heredity, there are number of causes for hair loss like iron deficiency, thyroid problems, stress/anxiety, nutritional factors like lack of protiens and vitamins deficiencies.
