Alopecia or baldness is the partial or total hair loss in any of the parts of the human body. It can affect men and women, and it normally manifests on the head, where most of the hair in the human body can be found. In the case of men, it develops typically with a receding pattern from the front to the back of the head and a thinning crown.
In women, the loss is generalized differently, the hair is lost in a more random matter without a defined pattern. In some cases, the hair loss is accompanied by a widespread thinning.
In both cases, it is consequence of hormonal changes, age, and genetic predisposition. However, it can also be caused by certain diseases, burns, or traumas. It has been determined that the earlier the hair loss starts, the more severe the baldness will be.
This condition can be first observed when the hair starts thinning and losing its strength. It is very common that during washing and brushing an unusual increase of hair loss can be seen. To diagnose it, you must go to a specialist, a hair doctor. We recommend you consult Dr. Julio Gil: specialist in hair restoration.
