Hair loss is one of the common problem faced by everyone at some point in their lifetime. 70-100 hairs reach their resting phase each day and fall out; so some level of hair loss is normal.

While daily shedding is normal, individuals who see their hair shedding in large amounts after combing or brushing or for those whose hair gets thinner or falls out should consult a dermatologist for appropriate diagnosis and treatment.

Hair loss or alopecia refers to partial or complete loss of hair on your scalp or any part of the body. Male pattern baldness is a normal condition that influences many people at some point in their lives.

Alopecia areata, also known as spot baldness a type of hair loss that affects all ages, which causes hair to fall out in round patches.

The most recent study into male pattern baldness treatment concentrates on hair cell cloning. The method includes taking a small amount of a personís remaining hair cells, multiplying them, and injecting them into bald regions.

80% of adults realize that hereditary factors are the main cause of hair loss. Each follicle undergoes a cycle, which can be affected by diseases and age. Hair fall is caused by skin diseases like ringworm infection on the scalp and lifestyle diseases like diabetes. Genetics, aging or changes in hormone levels also do play a role in hair loss.

Malnutrition and side effects to certain chemotherapy, acne or diet pills can also cause hair loss. Treating hair fall and empowering hair re-growth can get simpler when the cause can be identified.

For healthy hair growth, make sure you are getting enough vitamin C, B such as Biotin (also known as Vitamin B7 or Vitamin H) and Niacin (Vitamin B3).
