Losing your hair gradually or in a short amount of time can certainly be emotionally distressing. It can also have an increasingly negative effect on your self-image and your general sense of self-esteem.
It’s worth noting that androgenetic alopecia is often related to genetic and hormonal factors as a man ages. Stress-related alopecia can affect either gender. This form of hair loss has many different associated factors, that could include genetics, environmental conditions, and stress as well as nutrition. Determining the factors associated with your hair loss is critical for determining the best treatment method.
