Male or Female Pattern Baldness is a distinctive form of hair loss that affects many, usually by the age of 50. This can be defined as the loss of hair from the head brought on by age but can also be caused by an autoimmune disorder. Androgenetic alopecia affects both men and women and is very common. Here are ways that this may impact males and females:

Males:

  • Hair is lost in well-defined pattern
  • Hair loss begins above the temples
  • Overtime, the hairline recedes to form an “M” shape
  • Usually, the hair loss occurs at the top of the head or the front, at the hairline

Females:

  • 40 % of women are affected, usually by age 50
  • Less than 45% of women reach 80 years old with a full head of hair
  • Hair becomes thinner than normal
  • Hair loss is usually at the top of the head and at the crown
  • Major events such as child birth, malnutrition, a severe infection, major surgery or extreme stress can be big causes of sudden hair loss.

There are no cures for male and female pattern baldness, but there are treatments and ways to try and slow the process. Hair transplants and natural looking wigs and hairpieces are options to cover up the patchy areas. There are also foods that may fight hair loss. A poor diet may cause macro and micronutrient deficiencies. Eating lots of red, yellow and orange fruits and vegetables such as carrots, peppers and cantaloupe may help with your nutrients. Fatty fish such as salmon contains omega 3 and yogurts are rich in vitamin B5. Also, staying hydrated is key, drinking as much water as possible and cutting back on the caffeine.
