What causes hair loss?

Recommended Posts

Why does MPB occur often in men and not women?

Why does hair from the back of the head not fall off when transplanted in front where native hair has fallen off?

Is DHT a cause? Why would it only affect native hair on top but not transplanted hair or hair in back?

The short answer is genetics, but the actual mechanism that triggers hair loss is hormonal. I encourage you to read this article as it has valuable information.

Hormonal changes related with pregnancy, labor, stopping the utilization of conception prevention pills, and menopause can cause impermanent male pattern baldness. Therapeutic conditions that can cause male pattern baldness incorporate thyroid illness, alopecia areata (an immune system sickness that assaults hair follicles), and scalp diseases like ringworm.

What about hats? Can wearing a hat (not tight) cause my hair loss? I really like wearing a baseball cap and it can rub on my hair.

Hormonal changes are the main cause but there may be other reasons for hair loss including stress, lack of nutrition in diet, thyroid or other medical treatment.

Hair loss is complicated.  Hormonal? Sure.  Hereditary condition? Of course.  Stress, while not the main cause, it can speed up the process.  Stress? Again, not the cause but it can prompt rapid shedding.  Add to the equation the fact that there are resting periods for the follicle as well as miniaturizing.  There is probably lots of info we still don't know.  Most believe, however, that this is a hereditary condition that can come from both sides and it can actually skip generations.  They also believe that DHT is the main culprit.  So, when a woman thins out in a MPB pattern, the belief is that she a higher percentage of testosterone compared to other women.  

How many times have I heard young guys come in and say, "wish I would have done something sooner."  If you are starting to thin, do your research and go to the doctor.  There are modalities, to start, that can help manage the thinning.  This will give you time to then decide what you want to do.  Hair restoration is not an inexpensive process and can be quite devastating for some.

Male Pattern Baldness is related to hormones. DHT may also be a cause of hair loss, only if your body is producing it in excessive amount. But reasons behind MPB are not limited to hormones and DHT levels. Stress, unhealthy lifestyle, diseases like thyroid & diabetes are also responsible factors for hair loss.

If you have a family history of baldness, you may have this type of hair loss.  A diet lacking in protein, iron, and other nutrients also the reason of hair loss.

Choosing the Right Hair Loss Treatment

However, if a person has baldness issue, it is better to go for the hair transplant treatment.
