Genetics: The Reason Behind Hair Loss?

Reason Behind Hair Loss

Hair loss can be an annoying, if not irreversible, fact of life. Many men and women are genetically predisposed to hair loss, which for men can begin as early as the mid-20s to 30s. For women, thinning of the hair is a bit more subtle, but peaks following menopause. While heredity is a common cause of hair loss, there are several misconceptions regarding what is in your genes and how likely you are to lose hair, or in what fashion. Misconceptions include::

  • You only have one ‘gene’ that predicts hair loss

While there are specific links between the ‘androgen receptor gene’ and male pattern baldness, there are far more genes that serve as predictors of hair loss. And in fact, all of them are pretty poor predictors of whether or not a man will actually lose hair.

  • Your mother’s side is responsible for hair loss

While the androgen receptor gene is located on the X chromosome, genetic predisposition to hair loss can come from either side of the family.

  • Genetic predispositions only involve men

Over 30 million women in the United States face hair loss due to genetic factors. ‘Alopecia,’ as it is known, tends to be more subtle in women, thinning more evenly over the scalp rather than in a specific pattern.

Aside from genetics, hair loss can be stressful and embarrassing. While there are many products that promise to give you a fuller head of hair, very few produce long-lasting and durable results. Luckily, a process known as scalp micropigmentation can give you an immediate, long-lasting fuller-looking head of hair without the need for retreatment.

Scalp micropigmentation is a cosmetic process that involves injecting small amounts of pigment into the skin to create the appearance of hair. For men with thinning hair, the procedure can help to create a fuller-looking head of hair, while for bald guys it can deliver a clean-shaven look.
