Best candidates for hair restoration
There are many conditions which lead to hair loss; however, the most common is androgenic alopecia. This type of hair loss has its roots in genetics and is owed to hormonal imbalance which affects both men and women. Men suffering from this see hair loss, while women suffering from this condition experience thinning of hair. Androgenic alopecia usually begins with the onset of puberty and you could see its affects after a few years.
Most people think that hair loss only affects men but, on the contrary, data shows that women struggle with hair loss as much as men and almost half of the women who are facing thinning of hair also suffer from hair loss. Hair loss in women is more diffusive, and this affects not just their appearance but self-confidence as well.
