As we age, some aspects of our appearance deteriorate and, therefore, we look for solutions to prevent this continuous wear. Although the prevalent belief is that some of these conditions, such as hair loss, are not harmful for our health, they are usually considered as illnesses and thus constantly researched to find out their causes and come up with treatments to prevent them.
This is the case of androgenetic alopecia a very common condition in both men and women, which is a source of a lot of concern, as a healthy hair is a very important aspect of our appearance. This text evaluates the causes for the onset of androgenetic alopecia and the most appropriate treatments to heal this uncomfortable situation with a lot of patience and the appropriate products and protocols.
What is androgenetic alopecia?
Androgenetic alopecia (AGA), or pattern hair loss, is premature and abnormal hair loss and is one of the most common chronic conditions diagnosed by dermatologists all over the world. Is is characterised by progressive hair loss with a gradual decrease in the diameter, length and pigmentation, particularly on the scalp. It has different patterns in women and men, but the centre of the scalp is the most affected area in both cases. Androgenetic alopecia may appear at any time after puberty and incidence increases with age.
This type of alopecia is responsible for most hair loss cases, approximately 95%, and affects the self-esteem and quality of life of the person affected. Despite the high prevalence of AGA, the approved therapeutic options are limited. Along with the small number of pharmacological treatments, there are many over-the-counter medications that are considered very effective in restoring hair with androgenetic alopecia.
Causes of androgenetic alopecia
As its name states, AGA is a genetic condition. Dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a product derived from the male hormone testosterone, is the main enemy of the hair follicles on our head. For many years, scientists assumed that androgenetic alopecia was caused by a prevalence of the male sexual hormone, testosterone, which is also minimally present in women under normal conditions. While testosterone is at the core of the hair loss process, it has been proven that DHT is the main culprit.
Testosterone transforms into DHT with the help of a Type II enzyme: 5-a-reductase, located in the sebaceous glands of the hair follicles. In some investigations, it has been observed that the problem is not the amount of testosterone in the subject, but the level of binding between DHT and the receptors in the follicles of the scalp. DHT shrinks the hair follicles, which makes it impossible for healthy hair to survive.
The hormonal process of testosterone, which becomes DHT, then damages the hair follicles in both men and women. Under normal conditions, women have a tiny fraction of testosterone compared to men, but even this low amount may cause DHT-dependant hair loss in women.
Given that hormones work better when they are balanced, androgens or male hormones do not need to increase to cause a problem. However, when female hormones decrease, these androgens, such as DHT, increase, and this unbalance may also cause issues such as hair loss.
Hormones follow a cyclical process. Testosterone levels in some men decrease by 10% each decade after thirty. The hormone levels of women decrease as they approach menopause and experience a sudden decrease during and after menopause. The cyclical nature of our hair and our hormones is one of the reasons why hair loss can increase in the short term, even when there is a long-term deceleration of the hair loss process taking place (and a gradual increase in hair growth) while applying a treatment to control hair loss.
Treatment for androgenetic alopecia
As mentioned before, androgenetic alopecia can be solved. However, this requires a lot of patience along with the best products, as the hair cycle continues normally and restoring the health of hair follicles is not an easy process.
To understand the impact of certain products on the stimulation of hair growth, we must first understand the processes that trigger the disappearance of hair follicles on the scalp, which are directly related to the formation of DHT. Therefore, we must choose products that can inhibit the formation of DHT while regenerating already affected follicles to restore the health of the hair.
You can use home remedies or effective action with specific products against hair loss that stimulate hair growth.
Moreover, you can use external action products (applied on the skin) or products that act from the inside, that is, nutritional supplements to nourish and keep the scalp healthy.
In any case, non-aggressive products are the most recommended treatment when seeking a solution for pattern baldness. Below, we present some REDENHAIR products that help stimulate new hairs and keep hair healthy, avoiding hair loss and remedying male or female pattern baldness.
