Reasons for Hair Loss
One of the primary reasons for hair loss is genetics. Male baldness starts at an earlier age. It becomes evident because of a thinning hair line and diminishing hair at the back of your head. On the other hand, female hairlessness is generally shown by receding hair above the scalp. Look at your scalp closely to determine if baldness is caused by impairment of the loss of hair follicles. If the scalp looks very normal with adequate follicular structures, the problem can be non-scarring hair loss. On the contrary, follicles are destroyed permanently with scarring bald-headedness.
