Mostly people naturally shed about 50 to 100 hairs a day, but sometimes men and women can shed much more, leading to thinning hair, hair loss, and over time, baldness. The causes of this hair loss can be a result of hormones, underlying medical conditions, and even certain medications like antidepressants, high-blood pressure medications, and NSAIDS (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications). Hair loss can be purely genetic and can run in families.
What causes hair loss?
As with many conditions in our body, hair loss is often related to genetics. We do not fully understand the precise genetics. Individuals with hair loss should be seen by a dermatologist specializing in hair loss to confirm a diagnosis. Along with genetics, there are a variety of other potential causes for hair loss including: inflammatory skin diseases, infection, hair products/hair styling, medications and underlying medical conditions. physical examination and medical history are important. If there is any doubt as to the diagnosis a scalp biopsy can help confirm a diagnosis.
What is male and female pattern hair loss?
Androgenic alopecia, or male pattern baldness, is characterized by the shortening of the hair follicle’s growth cycle eventually leading to thinner hair and color loss. It primarily affects the front and crown of the scalp. While each individual has his own unique experience of hair loss, hair loss itself is very common. Almost 30% of men show signs of hair loss by the age of 30 and up to 50% of men experience hair loss by the age of 50.
