Hair loss is a common disease that impacts both men and women. For many people, losing their hair is a frustrating experience, fortunately, medicinal treatments are available that can help to regrow your hair or prevent further hair loss. Alopecia androgenetic results from a combination of genetic factors and male sex hormones, called androgens.

A variety of genetic and environmental factors may contribute to alopecia. Researchers are studying risk factors that may influence the development of this condition, but most of these factors are still unknown. A hormone called dihydrotestosterone, an androgen is believed to be responsible for this form of hair loss.

Both males and females use androgens for other purposes, such as regulating hair growth and sex drive.
