Hair Loss

Roughly 80 million Americans experience hair loss every year. While it is natural to lose a few strands of hair every day, male- or female-pattern baldness is typically a genetic condition. Severe hair loss can also result from autoimmune disorders, pregnancy-related hormone changes, thyroid disorders, and stress. Depending on the condition, hair loss may be permanent or temporary. Many medications attempt to reverse hair loss. In this section of our blog posts, we review hair loss treatment methods and discuss the ones that are proven to work.
