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. Alopecia areata occurs when the body's immune system attacks hair follicles and causes hair to fall out. Androgenetic (or androgenic) alopecia, on the other hand, is an inherited form of hair loss. 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. In men, this is called male pattern hair loss; in women, it is called ...Read more

This: This is tricky to answer without seeing a picture. A normal person loses about 100 to 150 hairs per day, but they are replaced as hair grows anew out of a hair follicle. If you are worried about androgenetic alopecia (male-pattern baldness), I would see a dermatologist for a baseline so that you can compare over time and then begin treatment if desired. Some other common causes of hair loss are discussed below. I hope that helps. ...Read more

Is being bald or losing hair hereditary in males? Females?

Yes: Both graying and baldness are mostly genetic- ask your older relatives when they lost their hair or started graying. Sometimes, medical illness or certain stressors or medical treatments (like chemo) are the cause. Male pattern baldness is carried by the females- so it is possible to have a bald father and sons with full heads of hair. Women can also have male pattern baldness. ...Read more
