What is Androgenic Alopecia?

The most common cause of hair loss is androgenic alopecia – male and female pattern baldness. The contributing factors are genetics and hormones. Hairs located in the front and crown of the scalp are genetically programmed to reduce-in-size due to the hair growing tissue’s sensitivity to the hormone dihydrotestosterone or DHT. The hair becomes finer and finer, until it becomes practically invisible to the human eye and eventually falls out.
