Hair loss has many causes, and one of the most common causes is genetics.

What Causes Hair Loss???

Hair loss is a complex process that occurs in three different stages. The first stage of hair loss is when the hair follicle shrinks and stops producing hair. In stage two, the hair follicle shrinks even more and eventually produces fewer strands of hair, which can result in thinning of the scalp. Stage three is when the hair follicle emerges again to produce new strands of hair, but these strands are much lighter than usual because they are not melanin-rich; this last stage can be indicative of poor health condition or a stress-related event.

The most common cause of baldness is genetics. Other possible reasons for baldness include :

Hereditary hair loss can be the cause of hair loss for many people. In a person with hereditary hair loss, the gene that causes the problem is passed from one or both parents.

At any age, there is a chance that you may experience hereditary hair loss to some degree. For example, you might notice that your hairline begins to recede or thin on either side of your head. Or you might notice small bald patches on your scalp where there was once hair.

What causes this type of balding varies depending on who has passed on the gene disorder and what other factors are present in their lives. The genetic mutation can be inherited from one parent who passes it onto their child, or it can be inherited from both parents and carried by their child through each generation like a baton relay

is an autoimmune disorder that causes hair loss on the scalp and other parts of the body.

It can be difficult to know if you have alopecia areata because it often starts with a small patch of hair loss that can be hard to notice. The hair loss can come and go, but eventually, it will stop growing back in those areas.

Alopecia areata affects about 2% of people in the United States and Canada, but it’s not clear why some people get it and others don’t. It’s also not clear what causes alopecia areata or how to prevent it from happening again.
