Alopecia refers to a condition where a person suffers from hair loss from any part of the body for any reason. There are several types of Alopecia, ranging from thinning hair to complete baldness.
Baldness implies no hair on the head. In humans, generally Baldness means Androgenic Alopecia or "male pattern baldness" or its variant "female pattern baldness". This syndrome occurs in adult male and some female humans and other species. The degree and pattern of baldness can vary from person to person.
Causes of Baldness
Mainly the cases of hair loss are due to Androgenic Alopecia. Approximately 50% of men by the age of 50 suffer from Baldness. The reason can vary from genetic factors to excess of male hormones (androgens) around the hair follicles, which eventually block growth. In women, Androgenic Alopecia generally develops after menopause, when they have fewer female hormones.
