Experts say that they have started to treat patients suffering from hair loss, who are as young as fifteen or sixteen, a time when the girls are in their prime of life and health.
As you must be aware, hair grows at the rate of one half inch every month, and after a certain period of time, ranging from two to six years, it goes into a state of rest, after which it starts to fall out from the hair follicle. This all happens so that a new hair can start to grow from the same place, but for some women, androgens are present in abundance, and when this happens, the natural cycle gets interrupted, and a build up of dihydrotestosterone or DHT takes place. This causes the woman to lose hair.
Experts say that it is vital to maintain hygiene on one's scalp, and when your scalp is oily, it may well lead to the formation of dandruff, which in turn will lead to more hair loss. However, this in itself is not a cause for hair loss.
