Androgenetic Alopecia affects an estimated 50 million men and 30 million women in the US. In men, the hair recedes, affecting a large area of the scalp. In women, the hair becomes thinner overall and the hairline does not recede. Understanding why this happens is the first step to preventing and combating further hair loss.

There are many reasons for hair loss, ranging from genetic disposition to stress and auto-immune disease. However, the reason for most hair loss is androgenic alopecia (AGA), otherwise known as male pattern baldness.

It is scientifically proven that excessive levels of DHT is the root cause of hair loss in adult men. DHT causes hair loss by attaching to hair follicles and shortening their growth phase. Over time, DHT causes hairs to become progressively weaker and finer until they simply stop growing altogether, becoming dormant.

Secondly, there in an enzyme found in the body (5-alpha reductase) that is responsible for converting testosterone into DHT. This is proper during an infants’ development, as it aids in healthy growth during puberty. However, the role of this conversion as continued into adulthood is unknown, and conversely has been shown to have adverse effects. The conversion of testosterone into DHT is responsible for early-onset male pattern baldness along with prostate and urination problems. It is suggested that our modern lifestyle and diet choices also contribute to the production of excessive DHT.

Can it affect women too? Yes. Although women have less testosterone, what they do have can convert in the same way, and the effect is female pattern baldness, which generally is shown along the centre of the scalp.

Anagen Effluvium is generally caused by the chemicals that are used to treat cancer. Certain drugs or medications may also contribute to this type of hair loss. The good news is that upon stopping the particular drug or chemical, the hair will begin to grow again after about 6 months.

Frontal Fibrosing Alopecia is due to auto-immune disease. Doctors often state that this type of alopecia is non-reversable. However, treatment to the affected area can greatly slow if not stop further hair loss. At times, maintaining the amount of hair one has is often a win in itself.

Traction Alopecia is caused by the consistent and excessive pulling of the hair, usually back into a tight ponytail or braids. This is most often seen in women and it can stop new hair follicles from developing. It may even lead to permanent hair loss.

Since there are various types of hair loss, we recommend acquiring your diagnosis from either a Dermatologist or a Trichologist to ensure proper treatment.
