Both genders, men and women, can lose their hair at some point in their lives; women tend to lose theirs for very different reasons than men. Most women that lose their hair will see their family doctor to find out what is happening. You may be referred to a specialist such as a dermatologist or other specialty. Women can actually have what is called “female pattern hair loss” just like men! Most of the time, this condition provides thinning on top of the head only. Hair will not fall out so much from the sides of a woman’s head, but will get thin on the top instead. For short periods of time, with some people, for a variety of reasons, hair can fall out in patches. Your job, or your life, can cause chronic amounts of stress which can lead to such hair fall out.

Although at the time he had no idea that his hair loss was due to high and chronic levels of stress. This just shows how evaluating your life, and looking at what is happening and it, can help you understand what is going on.

Men that have male pattern baldness tend to gravitate toward the belief that their father’s side of the family gave this to them Unfortunately, men that have this particular gene got it from their moms. Sex linked genes, otherwise known as your X or Y chromosomes, is where the hair loss gene originates. Instead of being dominant, the X Chromosome is recessive and causes the male pattern baldness that we see. The reason the X Chromosome gene is expressed as male pattern baldness is because males only get one X Chromosome from their moms.
