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.

Do fast foods and oily foods cause build up DHT and can cause hair loss in theory or for a fact? I eat tons of fast food and begin MPB

Not connected: It's not "theory" -- it's simply made up, just like the stories about sexual activity of various kinds accelerates baldness. Men get male pattern baldness pretty much in proportion to how much chest hair they're naturally blessed with -- look around you. This stuff is invented by website writers to seem like humanitarians and scholars and ultimately make money. You can see through it. Cheers. ...Read more

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?

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. Without seeing you it is always possible that your pattern of hair loss is not genetic. Seeing a dermatologist would be your best option to clarify this and if there would be any treatment necessary. ...Read more

It just doesn't: One of the cults is frightening teenage men with phony scientific-sounding talk suggesting that if do what comes naturally, they'll go bald. This is just a lie. You should ignore these people. Male pattern baldness is genetically programmed and closely linked to how much chest hair you're naturally blessed with -- just look around. I'm sorry that someone troubled you over this foolish stuff. ...Read more
