    Thumbs up Why Do Men and Women Lose Hair?

    Hair loss (Androgenetic Alopecia) in men is caused by the shrinking of the hair follicle in the scalp, which leads to the hair falling out. This is caused by a reaction between an enzyme in the body, called 5-alpha reductase, and the naturally occurring testosterone in the body which creates dihydrotestosterone (DHT). The DHT causes the shrinking of the hair shaft (known as miniaturization) which ultimately leads to the hair falling out.

    Hair loss in women can affect up to 25% of the female population on a global scale. Often women start to lose hair around menopause but that is not the only cause. The causes are usually a combination of factors and can include emotional stress, hormonal imbalance or dietary deficiencies. A hair treatment provide a tailored supplement which corrects any imbalance or dietary deficiency, which then allows the potent re-growth serum to work much faster.

    the real answer for why people lose hair when they get older is mainly because of DHT or Dihydrotestosterone. It is a dormant gene in the body that suffocates the hair follicle causing it to fall out. Everybody loses their hair. Most people lose about 50 to 100 head hairs a day. If you're losing more than normal, something is wrong.
