What is Hair loss?

Hair loss, or Alopecia can affect your entire body or just your scalp, it can be temporary for some or permanent. It can be the result of heredity, hormonal changes, medical conditions or a normal part of aging. Males and females can lose hair on their head, but it’s more common in males.

Excessive hair loss from your scalp is typically referred to as Baldness. The most common cause of baldness is hereditary hair loss with age. Some people prefer to let their hair loss go on its course untreated and unhidden but others may cover it up with hairstyles, makeup, hats or scarves. And some choose one of the treatments available to prevent further hair loss or restore growth.
