Baldness typically refers to excessive hair loss from the scalp. It may be due to heredity, hormonal changes, underlying medical conditions, stress, certain treatments and medications, etc. Both males and females experience hair loss, but it is more common in men. Hereditary hair loss with age is the most common cause of baldness. Male pattern hair loss is the most common type of hair loss and typically affects men starting from about the age of 30. Hair loss can start as early as puberty, although this is uncommon. Many men start to notice thinning of their hair in their late 20s or early 30s. It is also known as inherited male pattern baldness and androgenic alopecia. It is an inherited condition that involves hair loss as you get older. Although this inherited type of hair loss can also affect women, the pattern of hair loss is different in female pattern hair loss.
The changes that occur in male pattern hair loss are caused by an increased sensitivity of scalp hair follicles to male hormones. This increased sensitivity is an inherited condition which runs in families.
Signs and symptoms of hair loss may be:
Gradual thinning on top of head.
Circular or patchy bald spots.
Thinning and loosening of hair.
Heredity: The most common cause of hair loss is due to a hereditary condition called male-pattern baldness or female-pattern baldness. It occurs gradually with aging and in predictable patterns with a receding hairline and bald spots in men and thinning of hair in women.
Hormonal changes and medical conditions: A variety of conditions such as hormonal changes due to pregnancy, childbirth, menopause and thyroid problems can cause hair loss.
Medications: Hair loss can also be a side effect of certain drugs, such as those used for cancer, arthritis, depression, heart problems, gout and high blood pressure.
Radiation therapy: The hair may not grow back as it was before the treatment.
Stress: A severe physical or emotional shock can cause temporary hair loss in many people.
Some hair style and treatments: Harsh chemical treatments, excessive hairstyling and hairstyles that pulls the hair tight, can cause traction alopecia.
