What Causes Hair Loss?
Hair loss has a variety of causes. It is more common in men and usually comes with age, but it can affect anyone. Some causes of hair loss are temporary, whereas others are permanent since the follicles lose the ability to grow hair.
Causes of hair loss include:
- Medical conditions
- Hormonal changes
- Some hair products or treatments
For men, balding and thinning most often occurs on the front, top, and crown of the head. This is called Male Pattern Baldness. It is usually caused by the hormone dihydrotestosterone, which prevents hair follicles from making new hair.
