The most common type of hair loss that affects both men and women is called androgenetic alopecia and it is based on genetics. The hormone Dihydratestosterone (DHT) rises, the hair follicles begin to shrivel and hair growth is affected. Men and women will usually have a different response to DHT.
Alopecia areata is another type of hair loss that affects both men and women. Described as sudden hair loss that starts with one or more circular bald patches that may overlap. This happens when several follicles prematurely and usually rapidly enter the telogen (or resting) phase. This condition is known as an autoimmune disorder and is typically triggered by stress, extreme shock, and seasonal changes.
Men's Hair Loss
The first signs of hair loss in men are a receding hairline and thinning hair around the crown part of the head. If you notice either one of these or excessive hair on your pillow, the shower, or on your hands after styling - take action. If left untreated the hair loss will progress as the follicles begin shriveling and eventually die, which results in baldness.
Women's Hair Loss
Unlike men's hair loss, women typically will notice thinning around the top of the head or the crown area. Other signs of hair loss are if you notice you are shedding more hair than normal, or your part becomes wider.
Telogen Effluvium is other condition that is seen as thinning of the hair from all over the scalp. This is usually brought on by events that shock the hair follicles causing the hair follicles to move from a growing phase to a resting phase. Other events that may trigger this reaction are childbirth, starting or stopping taking oral contraceptives, pregnancy terminations, diet pills, or other medications.
Traction Alopecia is described as hair loss that is caused by placing constant, excessive tension on the hair shafts. Typically this occurs due to overuse of hair extensions, tight braids, or weaves. The hair follicle becomes damaged and usually leads to hair loss around the hairline and temples.
