Hair Loss Facts

What Causes Hair Loss?

Male Pattern Baldness

Male pattern hair loss is caused by a combination of male hormones and genetic (hereditary) factors.

The main male hormone is testosterone, both men and women have testosterone in the blood but this level is higher in men.

The skin of the scalp converts the testosterone to another substance called, dihydrotestosterone (DHT).

The DHT then develops in the hair follicle in effect suffocating the area which inevitably leads to hair thinning and hair loss.

The follicle becomes thinner and thinner whereby the hair follicle completely collapses and no longer produces hair.

Follicles on the sides and back of head are not exposed or affected to DHT.

Male pattern baldness is the most common form of hair loss, representing close to 95% of all cases of hair loss in men.

We offer a number of treatment options depending on your condition. Arrange a free consultation now.

Women

Unlike hair loss in men, female scalp hair loss may commonly begin at any age, and may not have any obvious hereditary association.

A woman who notices the beginning of hair loss may not be sure if the loss is going to be temporary or permanent.

In most cases, female hair loss can be effectively treated.

If you are a woman who has started to lose scalp hair, you are not alone if;

  • you are unpleasantly surprised by the hair loss
  • you notice a dramatic change in texture and thickness
  • you don’t understand why you are losing your hair

Female hair loss occurs in more than one pattern. If you are a woman experiencing signs of hair loss, we strongly suggest you seek professional advice from a Sydney Hair Clinic hair restoration specialist as soon as possible. We have numerous options available to assist you in the treatment of your hair loss.
