What is hair loss exactly?
If a healthy person loses about one hundred hairs a day, it is considered natural hair loss. Curiously, hair grows all the time under normal circumstances. As soon as a hair falls out, the next hair grows directly out of the same hair root. If more than one hundred hairs fall out a day, alopecia or permanent hair loss happens. In that case, the hair stops growing and bald spots occurs. Most men lose their hair locally, for example at the back of the head or on the temples. Usually, the hair decreases first at the hairline and thins out at the top of the head. Generally, this process start at age 20 to 30 years. Hair growth is mainly genetically determined. Genetic information defines how long the hair can grow or if it is curly or straight. Hair is made out of the protein molecule keratin, and is generally lifeless. The hair root under the scalp is the driving force and directs hair growth, depending on the genes.
