Balding Solution For Men And Women

The most common hair loss condition in male and female individuals is known as Androgenetic alopecia. This type of hair loss which is pattern balding is the most common cause of hair loss amongst men and a serious condition for many women.

There are three critical elements which are responsible for both female and male balding:

1. A genetic predisposition for balding to occur.

2. Excessive presence of male hormones.

3. Aging – enough time for the first two factors to occur.

Both men and women generate male hormones that have a functional role to play in both sexes; however the fact that testosterone occur in much elevated concentrations in men explains why male pattern baldness is more common than the female balding.

DHT the source of hair loss

It is metabolism of male hormones (androgen/testosterone) which is the main cause of hair loss in male and female pattern balding.

The metabolism of androgen involves an enzyme called 5 alpha reductase which combines with the hormone (testosterone) and converts it to DHT (Dihydro-testosterone).

DHT is a natural metabolite of our body.

The cause of male and female pattern balding

There are individuals, both men and women, who are genetically prone to create more DHT than the ordinary individuals. It is this accumulation of DHT and its effect on the cells inside the hair follicle and root which is one of the main causes of male and female pattern balding.

When DHT gets into the hair follicle and root, particularly a region called the dermal papilla, it changes the cell’ activity and stops required proteins, vitamins and minerals from dispensing nutrition needed to sustain life in the hairs of those follicles. Therefore, hair follicles are reproduced at a much slower rate.

This reduces their growing stage (anagen phase) and or extends their resting stage (telogen phase) of the follicle. DHT also causes hair follicle to dwindle and get progressively smaller and finer. This process is known as miniaturization and causes the hair to eventually fall. DHT induced androgenetic aloepcia is accountable for 95% of all hair loss.

Obstructing the synthesis of DHT at the molecular level set up the foundation for the treatment of MPHL (male pattern hair loss) and FPHL (female pattern hair loss). There are many natural DHT blockers and a number of drugs which are used for medical hair restoration.

Hello everyone! My name is Diane Rice and I am 54 years old. After suffering from my own hair loss, I started researching scalp and hair disorders to find a cure for my hair loss issues. Thankfully my issue was an easy fix, deep conditioning my hair more to prevent it from being dry and brittle. But while researching and going through my dilemma I was educated on other hair loss disorders. In my recent endeavors, I am now embracing the world of hair loss and want to make a difference in the life of someone else facing hair loss.
