While it is normal to shed about 100 hairs a day, if you are noticing bald patches or very thin areas that can be an indicator of hair loss. There can be many causes that can be attributed to this, some may include stress, hormonal changes, underlying diseases or medical treatments. The most common reason is hereditary: female or male pattern baldness or Androgenetic alopecia. It is important to see a Dermatologist to help narrow down the cause; at Middlebelt Dermatology Center we have effectively helped our patients halt or treat their hair loss.
