Male pattern or female pattern baldness is a hereditary condition that is said to be most responsible for hair loss. The condition occurs slowly but steadily and in an almost predictable manner such as receding hairline in men. Heredity also determines the age at which the hair loss begins, the rate and the degree of baldness. Pattern of baldness begins as early as puberty but affects, mostly men. It involves both thinning of the hair and change in texture.

Hormonal changes

Hormonal imbalances like during pregnancy or on the onset of menopause can result in temporary hair loss. Thyroid problems can also result to hair loss as the thyroid gland affects hormone levels. Hair regrowth treatment Perth professionals offer can, however, help to quicken hair recovery after these events.
