Did you know that approximately 80% of Caucasian men will have some balding by the age of 70, according to the @aadskin1? #HairLoss is commonly considered a men’s health topic, but women make up 40% of all hair loss sufferers. The most common type of hair loss is called androgenic alopecia, which is inherited, and where you stop producing new hairs. Other types of hair loss include telogen effluvium, anagen effluvium, alopecia areata, tinea capitis, and cicatricial alopecia. Hair loss is often tied to other conditions like hormonal imbalance, medication, stress, thyroid disease, among others.

Reduce the possibility of hair loss by avoiding constantly putting your hair in sleek ponytails, braids, and tight updos. Don’t dry your hair by rubbing it with a towel. Eliminate the use of long-lasting hold products as part of your #HairCare routine.

If you’re suffering from hair loss, there are treatments available. The most common being topical minoxidil (Rogaine), available over the counter in formulations for both men and women. Minoxidil helps stimulate hair growth and slows down hair loss; however, it cannot cure baldness. This treatment may take up to six months to see any results. For cases of male pattern baldness, prescription-strength Propecia is another treatment used. Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) injections and hair transplants may also be used as a response to hair loss.
