Androgenic Alopecia, one of the most common forms of hair loss is not a result of stress, or wearing a hat every day, or your hair in a ponytail. It also isn’t caused by nutrient deficiency nor by sebum. This form of hair loss occurs as a result of hormonal imbalance or genetic predisposition. Simply said, if you have been diagnosed with alopecia, you are losing your hair because of genes inherited by either parent. Your follicles are more sensitive to the changing hormonal activity in the scalp. The follicles at some point become more sensitive to the hormonal change and experts do not know why this happens. The hair loss problem is most common among people younger than 20, but kids and adults may also be affected.
