When people say, hair loss “runs in the family”, they are most likely referring to hereditary hair loss.
Actually, hereditary-pattern baldness, which is also known as Androgenetic alopecia is the most common form of hair loss. Hereditary hair loss is a natural condition triggered through genetic disposition, hormone levels, and the aging process.
Most men and women will notice hair loss or hair thinning as they age. If you have relatives who have experienced hair loss your risk of hereditary hair loss increases, but it is your genetic blueprint that will define certain factors such as: at what age your hair loss begins, how quickly you lose your hair, and the pattern and to what extent your hair loss will occur.
Although hereditary hair loss is most common in men, it also occurs in women – for every five men with the condition, three women are also affected. There is a difference within this type of hair loss: men experience "male pattern baldness", which typically appears at the front, mid-scalp, or crown of the scalp, and women generally experience “female pattern baldness”, which typically appears on the top or crown of the scalp.
Simply put, men will see thinning start with a receding hairline or bald spot on the back of the head, while in women thinning often starts with a widening part that leaves the front hairline unaffected.
For normally progressing hereditary hair loss there is unfortunately no cure, however there is a medical device available that is clinically proven to treat hair loss and reverse thinning, called the HairMax LaserBand 82 – which can help you take control of your hair loss situation.
