Androgenic Alopecia is a problem of hair loss across the hairline and on top of head. It is common cause of hair loss in both male and female.

Causes of Androgenic alopecia

Every hair on your scalp had a growth cycle . This growth cycle start to weaken and shrinks hair follicle which produce shorter and finer strands of hair ,the growth cycle of hairs end and no new hair grows in scalp .

The main culprit seems to be hormonal disturbance and that also is Dihydrotestosterone.

Researches are looking for reasons and suspect that many genes play a role to cause Androgenic Alopecia , they suspect that Ar gene variation can be a cuse of it. This Ar Gene makes a protein called androgen receptor which allows the body to respond to DHT and other androgens appropriately. As per scientist this variation in AR gene leads to increased activity of androgen receptor in hair follicle which may cause androgenic alopecia. But still it is unclear how this genetic transformation is causing loss of hair in men and women.

Some other trigger factors that cause alopecia are:

  • Ageing
