Hair loss refers to loss of hair from parts of the head or body. This is also known as baldness or alopecia. The most common types of hair loss types include male or female pattern hair loss or alopecia areata. The main cause of hair loss in men is a combination of hormones and genetics. Hair loss is also very common women, which is referred to as female pattern hair loss. Although the cause in women is unclear, it may also be caused by hormones and can be hereditary.

We naturally shed around 100 hairs a day without even realising. Hair loss is generally nothing to worry about but can be a sign of a medical problem. Some hair loss can be temporary which can be cause by stress, illness, cancer treatments and vitamin deficiencies. Most hair loss does not require any treatment as it can be age related.

Unfortunately, hair loss can cause a lot of distress in some people and therefore you may want to consider looking into treatment. No treatment is 100% effective, but the effects do last whilst you are being treated. There are many treatments available from medication, shampoos, wigs and even surgeries. You may want to carefully consider the route you wish to take as some treatments can be invasive and others require regular maintenance and can also be quite costly.
