About Hair Loss and Hair Thinning

Men and women with thinning hair have a lot of questions about hair loss. You have probably done some research in the library or online. We have some new answers to many of the old questions.

Did you know while both men and women can have hair loss, the causes are very different, and the treatments may vary. Men see hair loss more localized in the temples and crown. Men can be surprised when a friend points out the degree of hair loss and how noticeable it has become. Women see more diffuse hair loss that thins over the whole top and frontal sections. Although ladies can more easily hide hair loss for a longer period with creative hairstyles, it always becomes obvious and continues to thin with startling results.

The most common cause of hair loss is hereditary male- or female-pattern baldness. If you have a family history of baldness, you may have this type of hair loss. Certain sex hormones can trigger hereditary hair loss. It may begin as early as puberty.

In some cases, hair loss may occur with a simple halt in the cycle of hair growth. Major illnesses, surgeries, or traumatic events can trigger hair loss. However, certified professionals at TRIDOC Hair Restoration are uniquely qualified to design a program tailored to your hair loss circumstances and help you get your hair back.
