Hair loss occurs as a natural part of the ageing process in both men and women and although it rarely needs to be medically treated, many people choose to do so for cosmetic and personal reasons. Depending on the severity of the condition, both over the counter and prescription hair growth treatments are available.
The most common reason for hair loss in both sexes is Androgenetic Alopecia (AGA), more commonly known as male, and female pattern hair loss.
In men, hair loss usually begins above the temples, and the receding hairline eventually forms a characteristic "M" shape; hair at the top of the head also thins, often progressing to baldness.
In women, AGA begins with gradual thinning at the parting line, followed by increasing hair loss radiating from the top of the head. A woman's hairline rarely recedes, and women rarely become bald.
There are many potential causes of hair loss, including medical conditions, medications, and physical or emotional stress. If you notice unusual hair loss of any kind, it's important to discuss with a doctor or pharmacist to determine the cause and appropriate treatment.
