There is alarming increase in patients reporting with increase hair fall and even baldness in their early 20’s. There is also increase in cases of female baldness.
Hair loss is primarily caused by a combination of ageing, a change in hormones, and a family history of baldness. Hair loss can affect both men and women. As a rule, the earlier hair loss begins, the more severe the baldness will become. Hair loss can also be caused by burns, trauma, certain chemicals, drugs & cancer chemotherapy.
Baldness is often blamed on poor circulation to the scalp, vitamin deficiencies, dandruff, and even excessive hat-wearing. All of these theories have been disproven.
