There are many people experience baldness (alopecia) and try hard to find a cure for hair loss. Nearly half of men in the United States start to lose their hair by the age of 40.

Recent studies suggest that the cause of baldness is a combination of genetic factors inherited from parents as well as environmental factors. Also, pregnancy and sudden weight loss may be a considerable cause for temporary hair loss. Here are the trusted facts about baldness.

Alopecia (baldness) may be normal

Androgenetic alopecia (hair loss in men) is more common than female baldness. Additionally, the risk of baldness increases with age up to 80 percent by the age of 70.

Usually, it is associated with health conditions such as coronary heart disease and disturbance in hormones in both males and females. The statistics say that baldness affects more than half of women all over the world due to dihydrotestosterone (steroid hormone). Also, there are other causes such as hair dryers, hot combs and chemicals.

In many cases, baldness is a sign of other dangerous health conditions as cardiovascular diseases. However, it is normal for the others to lose their hair as they become older.

Normally, the person shed 50 to 100 hairs each single day (from about 100,00 hairs) and this number increases after using shampoo up to 250 hairs. So, it takes 3 to 6 months to replace the old hair with new one unless you don’t suffer from alopecia. Sadly, your hair will not grow again if you experience hair loss.

The treatments

It is known that even the best treatments have side effects. So, there are only few cures for baldness.
Guinter Kahn is the first one who invented a treatment for hair loss which is called minoxidil (Rogaine).

However, the minoxidil doesn’t work for everyone, but it has a magic effect for most of the users. It is recommended to be used twice a day with a dropper so that it can prevent hair loss as well as strengthens the thin hair. It works with about 30 to 40 patients.

Also, there are tablets for men called Propecia. They stop the hair loss and help the hair to grow again with some side effects.

Normally, it takes around 4 months to work properly and it may be a single year in some patients, so that the patient can notice the improvements.
