Hair loss affects both men and women of all ages. Losing hair can be a distressing experience, causing self-consciousness and negatively impacting self-esteem. Some hair loss occurs naturally as we age; while this may be normal, it is not usually appreciated. You have many treatment options for hair loss, including platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and minoxidil.
What Causes Hair Loss?
Numerous factors contribute to hair loss, including genetics, hormonal changes, medical conditions, medications, and lifestyle factors. The most common cause of hair loss in men and women, androgenic alopecia, is genetic. This hair loss occurs when hair follicles shrink, leading to thinner and shorter hair strands. Other factors contributing to hair loss include pregnancy, childbirth, menopause, stress, poor nutrition, certain medications, and medical conditions such as thyroid disorders and autoimmune diseases.
