Hair fall refers to the gradual loss of hair from the scalp during combing or otherwise due to the weakening of hair roots along with thinning of hair. This process may also lead to Hair loss (alopecia) which can affect just the scalp or the entire body. It can be temporary or permanent. Anyone can lose hair on their head, but it's more common in men. In women, it takes the shape of thinning of hair with loss of hair density in the scalp.
Baldness typically refers to excessive hair loss from your scalp. Hereditary hair loss with age is the most common cause of baldness. Some people prefer to let their hair loss run its course untreated and unhidden. Others may cover it up with hairstyles, makeup, hats or scarves. And still others choose one of the treatments available to prevent further hair loss or restore growth.
Before pursuing hair loss treatment, talk with your doctor about the cause of your hair loss and treatment options.
