When we talk about hair loss we don’t always refer to alopecia and baldness. Hair loss is actually a normal physiological process , which repeats itself at least 20 times over the course of a person’s life . We must think that there is a continuous change, so a fall of up to 100 hairs a day (especially in people who are lucky enough to have thick hair!)

Hair loss can be more pronounced in the seasonal replacement period , then in the fall and spring. Particularly in autumn, in the period from September to November, finding more hair than usual on the brush or pillow should not cause anxiety. The summer sun exposure has in fact determined an accumulation of free radicals (among the main molecules responsible for cellular aging) which determines a more consistent hair change in autumn.
However, the situation in which the relationship between hair in the growth phase and hair in the involution phase is unbalanced to the detriment of the latter, because in this case we are in the presence of an anomalous fall. The causes can be different: stress, environmental factors, drugs, hormonal imbalances, crash diets, vitamin deficiencies, genetic causes, etc.
Progressive hair loss is a condition known as baldness . The cause is never just one, because baldness is one of those multifactorial problems . Genetic and hormonal factors contribute to its appearance , but also an unbalanced diet in macro and micro nutrients, stress and an incorrect lifestyle . In this regard, it is useful to remember that smoking also increases the production of free radicals in the body, so here is another good reason to quit smoking.
The most common form of baldness is the one known as androgenetic alopecia . Like all other forms of baldness , it is men who are most affected (not surprisingly, the term “androgenetics”). It is estimated that 80% of individuals with baldness are men , against 30% of women. One of the reasons was found in dihydrotestosterone, an androgenic hormone derived from testosterone. It has been found that in the presence of high levels of dihydrotestosterone hair grows thinner, shorter and more sparse, and cannot effectively cover the scalp.
It has been seen that in individuals suffering from alopecia there is an overactivity of the enzyme responsible for the conversion of testosterone into dihydrotestosterone , which leads to a decrease in the levels of the former and an increase in the latter, with a consequent negative effect on hair growth.
