QWhat is the most common form and cause of hair loss?
Another great question...
The most common form of hair loss is called Androgenic Alopecia, also known as pattern hair loss. Usually, it is referred to as male or female pattern hair loss. This is usually caused by a hormone in your body called testosterone, which converts to dihydrotestosterone or DHT. This blocks the blood flow to the hair follicle, which then slowly miniaturizes, and if left untreated can cause the follicle to stop producing hair altogether. Another very common form of hair loss is medically induced hair loss. This can be from a hyper or hypothyroid condition or brought on by medical treatments such as radiation and or chemotherapy. The good news... All of these, if caught early enough is treatable.
