Hair-Fall Common Problem
We all are living in super fast world. We wake up in the morning we get ready and leave for our work, and by the time we come back from our work we feel so tired that we just ignore each and everything and just seek for a complete rest. Today we just not ignore our own desires to for the sake of money but our health too. In our day to day life many times we just ignore the symptoms of many major ailments and hair-loss is one of them. Hair-fall is known by the name of alopecia in the medial world. Generally hair-fall is a hereditary disease. Losing 20-50 hair is common in all of us, but if number increases up to infinity then it is an issue to worry. Initially hair-fall starts from the temples and later on it increases from the sides of your scalp. Male pattern baldness is characterized by hair receding from the lateral sides of the forehead (known as a "receding hairline") and/or a thinning crown. Both become more pronounced until they eventually meet, leaving a horseshoe-shaped ring of hair around the back of the head. Although baldness is not as common in women as in men, the psychological effects of hair loss tend to be much greater. Typically the frontal hairline is preserved but the density of hair is decreased on all areas of the scalp. Previously it was believed to be caused by testosterone just as in male baldness, but most women who lose hair have normal testosterone levels. Causes of female hair loss may vary from those that affect men. In the case of androgenic alopecia female hair loss occurs as a result of the action of androgens hormones (testosterone, androsteinedione, and dihydrotestosterone (DHT)). Losing hair among women is uncommon because it happens only in few situations for instance if a woman has undergone through some major operations, chemotherapy, during the delivery, excess consumption of contraceptive pills etc.
