Hair Loss (Definition)

Hair loss, otherwise known as alopecia, can be caused by different reasons, including damage to the hair shaft or follicles or fungal infections. There are two main types of alopecia.

Hair loss in front, receding. A few White dying hairs. Best remedy or therapy? Rogaine, minoxidil, natural options?
