Androgenetic alopecia or hair loss: 

صلع

Hair loss or androgenetic alopecia is a form of hair loss that extends in families and families from generation to generation,  

And it is a common situation in both men and women. 

Some may think that Androgenetic alopecia affects the hair on the scalp only,  

But it can also occur in other parts of the body. 

Although Androgenetic alopecia is harmless, it can negatively affect a person's psychological state, self-confidence and appearance. 

There is no definitive solution to the problem of androgenetic alopecia, 

But receiving the appropriate treatment may help slow or stop the increasing hair loss. 

 

What are the symptoms of androgenetic alopecia? 

Symptoms of androgenetic alopecia differ in men from women: 

 

  • Androgenetic baldness in men: 

In males, baldness usually begins with a gradual thinning of the hair (regression of the hairline), followed by the appearance of a tiny bald spot on the front of the head. 

 

  • Androgenic alopecia in women: 

Androgenetic alopecia in women rarely leads to the appearance of bald spots, but instead, a girl or woman will experience a general thinning of hair, especially on the front part of the head or in the middle of the head, while the front hairline remains without receding 

 

How to slow hair loss? 

1- Adopt a healthy lifestyle: 

Eating a healthy lifestyle, eating a balanced diet, getting enough sleep, reducing stress and exercising regularly; will improve body health and hair health. 

2- topical medications: 

Using topical medications such as Minoxidil is the first step of treatment.  

Minoxidil can be used by applying topical creams on bald areas 

3- Oral medications: 

The doctor may recommend using oral medications to reduce the severity of hair loss. 

4- Hair transplant surgery: 

Hair transplant surgeries help transfer hair follicles from one part of the scalp called the "donor site" to the balding areas. 

5- Laser therapy (red light therapy): 

Laser treatment may help improve hair density if the patient has hereditary hair loss or hair loss due to chemotherapy. 

6- Injection of platelet-rich plasma: 

PRP injections may help stimulate hair growth in areas experiencing hair loss. 

 

Always consult a medical professional in the situation of sudden hair loss, suffering from an autoimmune disease, undergoing chemotherapy, or losing hair without a clear explanation.
