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.

With alopecia areata, hair can fall out in patches all over the body. With androgenetic alopecia, hair on the head first thins and then falls out.

Hereditary hair loss, if DHT is produced in all men even in men with a full head of hair, then how is it genetic and the main cause of baldness?

Good question: A good, but tough question. If you are genetically predisposed to the early loss of hair then your hair follicles may not be responding to the Dht that is present.

Let's assume virility = masculinity, which one could say is distantly related to testosterone. Testosterone is converted into dihydrotestosterone (dht) which increases body hair (but decreases scalp hair). But don't forget genetics! ...Read more
