As men and women age, they are gradually affected by Patterned Hair Loss which is also known as androgenic alopecia, androgenetic alopecia or common baldness. It is a normal part of the aging process, the biological process of growing old in humans. When hair loss occurs prematurely (too early), is extravagant (excessive) or interferes with a person’s psychological well-being, it becomes a medical process.
Androgen hormones cause androgenetic hair loss which affect the hair follicles of people with a genetic receptivity. Regarding hair loss, some people have misconceptions that stress, diet, wearing hats, frequent washing and drinking alcohol can cause hair loss but no link between any of these activities and Patterned Hair Loss has been found by the researchers.
There are treatments available for Patterned Hair Loss that can both stop further progression and partly reverse the hair loss.
