Hair loss can be physically and emotionally difficult to deal with for both men and women. This condition, known as male or female pattern baldness, can cause thinning or loss of hair primarily on the scalp. Although the hair follicles produce new hair cells at an average rate of six inches per year, as people age, the rate of hair growth decreases.
Hair loss symptoms between men and women can vary.
Hair loss symptoms men encounter:
- Hair on scalp thinning
- Receding hairline
- Top of head baldness with or without hair on the side of the head
Hair loss symptoms women encounter:
- Overall hair thinning
- Hair thinning around the crown of head
- Hair thinning along the part that does not affect the hairline
There are several factors that may affect hair loss:
- Stress, illness, and childbirth
- Drugs and medications
- Burns, injuries, and x-rays
- Autoimmune Disease
- Cosmetic Procedures
- Medical Conditions
