There are several myths about the causes of hair loss. At one time or another, we have been told or have heard of stories that hair loss is caused by poor circulation of the scalp due to excessive wearing of a hat! In some instances, we would blame baldness on lack of vitamins and minerals or even to dandruff. Well, you can forget all these theories about hair loss and baldness because these have been proven to be untrue by medical studies. You don’t get bald by wearing a hat, so forget it; you can wear that hat anytime you want.

According to medical studies, hair loss can be attributed the persons genetic composition. This means that where you family line have bald women and men in its history, you are most likely to suffer hair loss. This type of hair loss is what medical people refer to as androgenetic alopecia or the common baldness. Androgenic alopecia is usually a permanent type of hair loss and runs in the family line. As a type of hereditary condition, this could mean that you start to experience baldness as early as your teen years. It is actually a slow process and the baldness would gradually become noticeable as you grow older. In men, hair loss may start at the temples and the crown and would spread to the other areas of the head. However women with androgenic alopecia would usually have hair loss limited to thinning of the hair around the areas of the front of the head, the sides and the crown. Very few women would go bald all the way like men.
