This kind of loss is common in people whose the parents have hair loss and baldness problems. The source of the problem is Testosterone, which is the dihydrotestosterone we call DHT together with 5 Alpha Reductase enzymes. DHT reaches the hair-building cells and damages them. First, it decreases the quality of the hair and the speed of elongation. Declined quality hair roots start to fall in 3-4 mounts for regeneration, instead of living 2 to 10 years. In this process repeats 10-15 times and then the phase of baldness that we call Alopecia emerges. The problem of genetic spillage is seen as thinning in the temples and in the upper part of the head, which we call vertex. To avoid this, DHT repressing pills and sprays can be applied.

It may start at several points in the hair without any symptoms because of the negative effects of stress, sadness, and bad morale on the immune system. Since the source of the problem is stress, sadness, etc., the most important stage of cure is to get rid of those problems. There are also herbal and scientific remedies for this problem.
