Hair loss or alopecia is a medical problem caused by a premature hair loss temporarily or permanently. A fall between 50-80 hairs is within the normal values of capillary health. A fall of more than 125-150 hairs a day is considered abnormal.
Hair is one of the body parts we care the most and also one that takes part directly in the look and image we have and project. Currently, hair loss is a problem that occurs in both men and women. For many, hair loss is considered to be a sign of aging, lack of attractiveness or self-confidence, and can significantly affect the self-esteem of people who suffer from it.
Therefore, nowadays there are more and more people who are concerned about having a healthy hair and at the same time willing to prevent the effects of the hair loss.
HAIR LOSS IN MAN
Alopecia in men is caused mainly by genetic and hormonal factors, even though stress and lifestyle can also significantly affect the health and condition of the hair. It usually starts with either a receding hairline or thinning at the crown of the head, creating a progressive reduction of the hair follicles, until finally hair comes off. Its causes are due to a local increase in dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a male hormone bringing about a shortening to the hair growth phase.
Hair loss is a very common problem in men and directly affects their image, having a great influence on the physical appearance of those who suffer it. So much is the case that many of them, when faced with these circumstances, start feeling powerless, as if they had lost some physical attractiveness, acknowledging as a result a partial loss in their self-confidence.
That’s the reason why the right foresight and treatment help fighting against hair loss
HAIR LOSS IN WOMEN
More and more women are affected by their hair care.
From genetic to environmental factors or even lifestyle, women’s hair undergoes a major loss since they become 50 years old.

Sometimes, they suffer an effect called Telogen effluvium where, for reasons that remain unclear, but increasingly common, women between 30 and 60 years old start losing hair very quickly.
