Methods of treating hair loss

In some situations, the body copes with hair loss by itself. This may be the case for long-term stress that often causes temporary hair thinning.

Genetics counts among the most complex reasons behind hair loss.This process is gradual and is often dictatedby a family history of hair loss. Masculine-type balding patterns may vary from slight recession of the hairline to advanced balding all over the head.The Norwood scale is used to assess this type of balding: the higher the number, the more advanced the balding process
