WHAT IS HAIR LOSS?
- There are many reasons why people lose their hair.
- Hair loss doesn’t only affect men, but it is more common in men.
- It can be upsetting and difficult to lose your hair, but you’re not alone.
Hair loss is a common issue that affects millions of people. There are many reasons why people lose their hair, ranging from environmental and lifestyle factors to medical conditions. The most common type of hair loss in men is known as Male Pattern Hair Loss – a genetic condition passed down by biological parents and grandparents.
Our hair, and how we look, can have a huge impact on our identity, our confidence and how we feel. That’s why losing some, or all of it can be really difficult to deal with.
