The most common cause of hair loss for both men and women is heredity. Either or both parents can pass on the gene that causes hair loss. Typically, men are more susceptible to hereditary loss of hair because of testosterone. Both men and women are susceptible to this condition. This means hereditary loss of hair with androgens.
Tight hairstyles such as extensions, braiding, and tight ponytails that place excessive tension on the scalp can cause a hair loss condition known as traction alopecia. Certain people are more susceptible to this type of hair loss. For instance, some people have sensitive hair follicles that are more easily traumatized than others.
Our dermatologist can help you identify the cause of your hair loss. The single most important element in determining hair loss is the doctor’s experience. First, he or she will start by asking a round of questions to better understand your condition. If the cause of hair loss remains unclear, he/she can order or perform tests which may include hair pull test, hair shed/pull collection, scalp biopsy, and blood tests.
No one would be able to make any decisions on it. Because the expression of your genetic makeup is unpredictable, the best forecast is only a guess. Generally, the younger you start to notice baldness (before 20), the more baldness you can expect to have.
