Hair loss and its hormones

In many cases, hair falls out due to hormonal fluctuations and is called hormonal hair loss. This problem occurs in both men and women. The main difference is that although this type of hair loss is usually temporary in women, it can be permanent in men.

Hair loss in men is due to prostate dysfunction. It begins to produce large amounts of a hormone called DHT. This hormone is an aggressive form of testosterone and in large amounts causes hair follicles to shrink, thus preventing new hair growth. At the same time, this hormone works by weakening the existing hair so that it does not fall out. The result is usually total baldness. While this type of hair loss can be treated, it cannot be cured.

In the case of women, this hormonal problem is in a better situation. For women, this is rarely, if ever, a permanent problem. In women, this hormonal problem occurs during puberty, pregnancy, and menopause. This is due to a decrease or increase in the amount of estrogen in the woman’s body. For example, after the birth of a child, a woman’s estrogen levels drop. This leaves her more vulnerable to the side effects of testosterone in her body. This can cause the hair follicles to shrink and start to lose hair. Hair loss will normally end as soon as the woman’s hormones return to normal.

To treat this hormonal problem, women can turn to over-the-counter shampoos intended to reverse hair loss. However, men with hormonal hair loss may have to resort to other hair restoration techniques, such as hair replacement surgery and hair caps. The reason for these extreme measures is that this condition is usually permanent in men.

There are cases where men suffer from complete bald spots due to hormonal hair loss and need a way to fill in these patches. For a man, this is really a very serious problem that needs attention, because it will not go away by itself. No man or woman should suffer from baldness with the treatments available today.
