WHY PEOPLE LOSE HAIR?
Are my parents to blame?
In a word, yes.
Unfortunately, the vast number of people that lose their hair are predestined for the fall! A hereditary condition that develops after puberty is the main culprit. The biology behind this is that androgens (linked to testosterone) stop hair follicles producing hair in a patterned distribution.
This is known as androgenetic alopecia (AGA) or “male pattern baldness”. Typically, hereditary or genetic hair loss is better understood in men than in women. “Female pattern baldness” is also affected by androgens, alongside other factors, and is still the subject of research.

What are the other causes of hair loss?
Other causes of hair loss, hair thinning and baldness are less common and include:
surgery or general anaesthesia
autoimmune diseases (such as lupus, lichen planopilaris, and alopecia areata)
Stress is also a factor in alopecia, although it is thought to speed up hereditary hair loss rather than to be a cause in its own right.
