Male and Female Pattern Baldness

Reasons for baldness:

  • A substance called DHT (Dihydrotestosterone) attaches itself to the hair follicle and is part of the testosterone family.
  • Increases after puberty/ hormone changes and more common in men.
  • It weakens the follicle often causing hair to thin or fall out.
  • Alopecia or other medical conditions/stress/fatigue.
