There are multiple causes of hair loss. The most common is male pattern baldness, also known as androgenic alopecia. This type of hair loss is caused by Dihydrotestosterone (DHT), which attaches to receptors on the hair follicles and causes thinning of the hair shafts for susceptible hairs. This type of hair loss is genetic and can be inherited from either side of the family. Many people wonder why they may be thinning when other, older family members may have less thinning than they do. The fact is that the genetic factors that determine how much of your hair is susceptible to thinning and balding can be expressed to different degrees. Some people may inherit susceptible hair, but only in the hairline or in the crown. Some people may have all of their hair susceptible to thinning and balding. It is essentially a genetic lottery.
