What Is Hair Loss?
If you’re losing more than 100 strands of hair per day, then you’re experiencing hair loss. The most common type is called male pattern baldness (MPB), this is triggered when a man’s body begins to produce too much of a hormone called dihydrotestosterone (DHT), this causes the hair follicles to shrink and eventually stop producing new hairs.
What Causes Hair Loss?
While there are many possible causes of hair loss, the most common culprit is Androgenetic Alopecia, also known as male pattern baldness. Formed by a combination of genetics and hormones, this form of hair loss and typically affects men over 50. However, it can also occur in younger men and women.
