Hair Loss Phenomenon

Hair loss affects both men and women. Losing hair is far from being a modern concern; it is an ‘age old’ problem, especially among men. It affects about half of all men.

The most common cause of hair loss is androgenic alopecia (also called alopecia androgenetica) which is known as male type alopecia or ‘male pattern baldness’. It is an inherited product of testosterone that accounts for this type of baldness. The trigger is called dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a powerful sex hormone that adversely affects the hair and prostate. However, the adverse effect of DHT is limited only to those hair follicles that possess a high concentration of the androgen receptor. In a non-balding scalp, testosterone enters the cell and is reduced to 5α-dihydrotestosterone (DHT) by 5-αlpha reductase enzyme. Then DHT binds to the androgen receptor and the complex moves into the nucleus. In a balding scalp, the accumulation of 5-αlpha reductase is increased, resulting in the increased production of DHT which in turn results in a higher concentration of the androgen receptor. Consequently, more complexes are formed between androgen receptors and DHT.

There are other factors that contribute to hair loss as well. Among others, there are disorders such as alopecia areata, telogen effluvium, scarring alopecia,  and hair loss caused by diseases and medications. Alopecia is the medical term for hair loss or baldness. Hypotrichosis is the term dermatologists use to describe a condition where a person doesn't have enough hair on the head and body. Physical stress and emotional distress play an important role too. Some believe that hair loss is more prevalent now than it was years ago, because people experiencing a more stressful social life than they did before. We have thoroughly discussed the causes of hair loss in men and women in separate articles.

Normally, everyone loses hair. We lose fifty to a hundred hairs a day. It happens during your morning shower, while you’re blowing it dry, or when you give it a quick brush. That’s just hair going through its cycles, and there will be a new one to replace it. However, hair loss may become a problem. It is a case when there is a sign of a more serious medical condition that needs an evaluation by a dermatologist and possible treatment. Inheritance capabilities determine if men and women are bald or balding. What is happening is that the hair follicles shrink and eventually become so small and weak that the hairs of the hair follicle falls off and the hair follicle is no longer able to produce hair.

Female and male hair loss pattern differs. Male type alopecia follows a distinct pattern, and affects only follicles that grow on top of the head. Female hair loss follows a more diffuse pattern; meaning less hair all over. it goes around the whole top of their head and can affect them at any time. Hair loss can be easily compared to a problem with your teeth. If you seek help and advice in good time, the treatment process would be quicker, simpler, easier, and less expensive. Therefore, do not wait until hair loss has already advanced and caused a major baldness. It is very important that anyone experiencing the first signs of hair loss should seek professional help as soon as possible.
