Causes of Hair Loss and Hair restoration

Male Hair loss usually develops gradually and may be patchy or all over. Individual loses roughly 100 hairs every day and each hair survives for an average of 4 1/2 years. About 25% of men begin to bald by the time they are 30 years old, and about two-thirds are either bald or have a balding pattern by age 60. Genetic baldness is caused by the body’s failure to produce new hairs and not by excessive hair loss. Male hair loss is the most common type of hair loss. It is caused by increased sensitivity to male sex hormones in certain parts of the scalp, and is passed on from generation to generation. The hormones make the hair follicles – from which hair grows – shrink. Eventually, they become so small that they cannot replace lost hairs. The follicles are still alive, but are no longer able to perform their task.

It is estimated that twenty-five million women in America alone suffer from hair loss or female pattern baldness. Although on the surface female hair-loss may resemble male pattern baldness, it is actually quite different structurally. Women lose their hair for many reasons, including genetics, hormones, and even stress. Some women also develop a particular pattern of hair loss due to genetics and age which tend to increase in women after menopause. The pattern is different from that of men. Female pattern baldness involves a thinning throughout the scalp. The front hairline generally remains intact.


Hair loss occurs when the daily hair loss exceeds 100 hairs. In female pattern hair loss, when the affected hair is shed, the root grows one in its place that is shorter. Eventually it becomes invisible “peach fuzz”. Genetically, hair loss can come from either parent’s side of the family. Female hair loss is not easily accepted, general belief tends to be that baldness is a problem for males, not for women. It is a mistake to assume that hair loss in women can be treated the same way as in men. Hair loss in women is generally very gradual, with the rate accelerating during pregnancy and at menopause.
