Hereditary Hair Loss: Get the Facts

Hereditary Hair loss can affect both men and women. It is caused by genetics, and hormones and the aging process also play a role. The medical condition of hereditary hair loss affects many. In women it is called Androgenetic Alopecia, and affects 30 million alone. For men is it commonly referred to as balding, or receding hairlines, but the condition is called male pattern baldness.

Fact: “Hair loss effects 30 million women”

The condition can be caused by a number of different genetic factors so it can come from the mother’s or father’s side, can skip generations, and affects all ethnicities. Male pattern baldness and androgenetic alopecia is caused by the hair follicle going through a progression of miniaturizing, and leading to a shortening of the hair cycle and eventually all together shutting down growth.

Fact: “40% of men experience hair loss”

About 40% of men and women will experience some type of hair loss as they get older. Men usually start in their 20’s-30’s and women more often after menopause. Hereditary hair loss is unlike other hair loss symptoms.

Fact: “100 hairs lost per day, on average”

An average person can lose up to 100 hairs per day, or even more due to illnesses, childbirth, or other conditions. With male pattern baldness and androgenetic alopecia, the hair falls out more in a pattern. In men, hair loss begins at the temples or crown. In women it can be more throughout but typically begins at the top and goes down the middle around the part. These conditions are typically diagnosed by the pattern, and also looking at family history.

Prevention and Treatment

Hereditary hair loss is very common and also treatable. Since hair loss is a progressive condition, the sooner it is treated the better the success. The hair cycle slows down and eventually will stop growing altogether. There are a number of different treatments and options out there. Checking a family tree from both sides can often predispose any conditions. If treatments is started early enough, the slowing down of the condition could be highly affected. Hair loss with this medical condition is permanent. Once the hair stops growing completely it is irreversible.
