Dr Oz: What Causes Androgenic Alopecia?
Dr Oz said that female baldness or Androgenic Alopecia is much different than male pattern baldness. In female balding, you tend to get thinning in your crown – near the part in the center of your hair. What is too much hair loss? Dr Oz said that he starts to worry if you are losing more than 150 hairs per day, because this can be reflective of hormonal changes which can change the density of your hair. Dr Oz said that you should try to catch the problem before it gets too severe, because once you lose so much that you cannot cover up your head, it may be too late. Dr Oz showed an illustration to explain what causes Androgenic Alopecia. During the androgen phase, hair tries to grow, but the androgens poison the well where the hair grows from and so your hair becomes thin and frail.
