Hair loss, commonly known as alopecia, is a condition that inhibits hair growth by disrupting the body's natural hair growth cycle. Hair loss is not limited to the scalp, but it can affect any part of your body. The disorder is either temporary or permanent.
Going bald so suddenly is devastating. After years with your precious locks, you will have difficulty getting used to having no hair in some areas or your whole head. And it is not just for the older generation either; younger people are balding as early as 25 years old.
Hair loss is common in both men and women. If you have the balding gene, it is only a matter of years before your hairline starts to recede and you lose your beautiful locks of hair. This is devastating for most people as it does not help with self-esteem. Plus, if you were already used to your hair, it will make it a lot harder to adjust to having none.
Hair loss can be permanent or temporary. It is more common among men than women. Men suffer from male pattern baldness due to genetics, or family history.
It is absolutely possible to have a full head of hair well into your 50’s and 60’s, even if genetics are not on your side. Experiencing hair loss can be different for everyone, and if you prefer to prevent it, there are steps you can take to help preserve your hair.
Deciding to do a hair transplant is a major decision, but the more important decision is choosing the type of hair transplant procedure you want to have. There are two main types of hair transplant surgery, including FOLLICULAR UNIT EXTRACTION (FUE) and FOLLICULAR UNIT TRANSPLANTATION (FUT).
