Male and female pattern hair loss is called androgenetic alopecia (AGA) because both androgens (andro) and genes (genetic) are involved. Alopecia is the medical term for hair loss.
The normal growth rate of scalp hair is one-fourth to one-half inch per month. Hair growth has a cyclic pattern that can be affected by a number of genetic, disease, medication or other factors to cause hair loss.
Trial and error treatment is not the most effective remedy for hair loss. The most effective and successful treatment is based upon a correct diagnosis of the cause of hair loss.
When we experience hair loss, we tend to think of anxiety as more of a consequence than the cause of the ordeal. Losing your hair does, indeed, often trigger stress and insecurity.
Your diet plays a surprisingly large role in the growth of your hair. Just like eating the right diet can keep you healthy and fit, the right food can help to stimulate hair growth and keep your hair strong and healthy as you get older.
