Androgenic alopecia (male pattern baldness) occurs due to the effect of DHT (dihydrotestosterone) hormone on vulnerable hair follicles, especially on the crown, top and front (but not on the sides and back). Hair loss is triggered because DHT shortens the growth phase of hair, which causes follicles to miniaturize.
Our hair is under attack continuously, not only from chemicals and elements but also us, the sole owner. We may unintentionally torture our hair into submission, which in long term the damage can’t be easily undone.
The first FDA-approved drug for treating hair loss was minoxidil, which was also known as Rogaine.
Hair relaxers have been used for a long time to treat dry and coarsely hair.
Aside from your face, another part of the body that needs extra care is your hair.
