Top 5 Home Remedies To Prevent Baldness
Baldness may be described as the partial or complete absence of hair on the scalp. It is also referred to by the medical term alopecia or hair loss. This condition does not only affect the scalp and hair loss can occur on other body areas such as eyebrows, eyelashes or pubic region. Normally, an individual loses approximately 50 to 100 hairs a day but sometimes a larger amount of hair is lost. Baldness affects both men and women.
1. Pattern baldness (androgenetic alopecia) occurs as a result of heredity factors.
2. Physical or emotional stress (high fever, weight loss, loss of a family member, nutritional deficiencies or surgery)
3. Hairstyles that pull your hair back too tightly or excessive hairstyling
4. Poor nutrition
5. Certain medications and medical treatments
6. Hormonal changes
7. Hair treatments such as bleaching, dyeing, tight braiding, blow drying, straightening or hot curlers
1. The typical pattern of male baldness begins at the hairline. The hairline gradually recedes to form an “M” shape. The existing hair may become finer and shorter. The hair at the crown also begins to thin. Eventually the top of the hairline meets the thinned crown, leaving a horseshoe pattern of hair around the sides of the head. Hair loss in patches, diffuse shedding of hair, breaking of hair shafts, or hair loss associated with redness, scaling, pain, or rapid progression could be caused by other conditions.
