With baldness, more than 85% of men over 50 and about 40% of women face this or that degree. Loss of hair causes people a lot of suffering - most of them are associated with psychological discomfort, which is more often experienced by women than men.
Why do hair fall out, is it possible to cope with baldness or avoid it? We collected some popular misconceptions about alopecia and figured out where the truth is.
Can not Cope with Hair LossNot quite so . Effective, suitable for all means, helping to cope with hair loss, has not yet been invented, but some anti-alopecia drugs from the market are really working. In addition, there is also non-drug treatment of alopecia, for example, hair transplantation.
However, we note that the ideal tool has not yet been found. A popular finasteride drug, which is prescribed by doctors from different countries, can cause serious problems with potency. It is reported that men who took the medicine, developed problems with erection , and they persisted even after the treatment was stopped.
Hair falls out due to Frequent Washing of the HeadNo. Every day, we lose up to 100 hairs - this is a normal process, to pay attention to which many begin only when the scale of loss is greatly increased, and in the place of falling hair does not appear new.
Alopecia is Transmitted from Fathers to ChildrenNot always. For loss of hair is responsible not one, but several genes. This means that alopecia will occur in the person who will bear the combination of several alleles responsible for hair loss.
In addition, hair loss can be triggered by a number of external factors: severe stress, the intake of certain drugs, diet, the development of certain diseases (for example, syphilis).
However, if we are talking about men, the hereditary factor in the onset of alopecia plays the leading role. Every fifth balding man has an older relative with the same problem.
