Experts say our hair usually grows at the rate of about one-half inch per month — with each hair having a growth phase of two to six years. At that point the hair “rests” for a period of time, then falls out — and the follicle from which it sprang soon starts growing a new strand. And so the cycle continues, usually well into our senior years.
In some people, however — those with a genetic predisposition to hair loss — a group of hormones called androgens interferes with this natural process.It is known hormones include testosterone, androsteinedione, and dihydrotestosterone DHT– all are made in men’s bodies in large amounts, and small amounts in woman bodies.
In those who are genetically susceptible, when testosterone comes in contact with enzymes residing in the hair cell, it is changed into the more potent androgen DHT, which then binds with receptors deep within the hair follicle.
Over time, an excess build-up of DHT in the follicle causes it to begin shrinking, which in changes the natural resting and growth phases of the hair. Some of the follicles eventually die, while others are rendered incapable of producing or maintaining healthy hair growth. The end result there is hair loss — and a condition that is medically known as androgenic alopecia.
