The thinning and loss of hair affects both men and women and can affect self-confidence and self-esteem.
Male-pattern baldness is inherited and, while it usually begins later in life, some men can be affected as early as in their 20s. This baldness pattern usually begins with a receding hairline, then the thinning of the crown or temples, leaving the common horseshoe shape of hair around the head.
Female-pattern baldness, though less common, typically affects menopausal and postmenopausal women, starting with the thinning of the hair on top of the head. Female-pattern baldness can also be attributed to factors such as hormone imbalances, vitamin or mineral deficiency, skin or autoimmune diseases and post-pregnancy.
