Does baldness affect men as much as women?
If baldness is more common in men, women are not spared it. How does this hair loss manifest itself? What solutions are available? Response elements.
What should you know about baldness?
Hair loss affects more men than women. In some people, it can occur at a young age (around 20s). It begins with the gradual balding of part of the head. This is most often the anterior part and the sides.
You should know that when hair loss occurs in an individual of 25 years or less, it is considered to be suffering from premature baldness. Normally, hair loss in men does not occur until around the age of 50. And even then, only half of male subjects exhibit this problem.
What are the different forms of baldness?
Hair loss can take different forms:
- Androgenetic baldness is the most common. It is due to increased sensitivity to male hormones or to heredity.
- Circumscribed baldness or alopecia areata refers to the specific baldness of part of the head. Usually, it is caused by an autoimmune reaction in the scalp, stress, or a reaction to a drug.
- Traction baldness results from the force exerted repeatedly on the roots of the hair (African weaves), the regular use of hair accessories such as elastics or even hairstyles requiring the hair to be pulled back for a long time (bun dancers)
- Diffuse baldness is chronic and manifests itself by abrupt baldness of the entire head. It is due to sensitivity to stress or to deficiencies. Chemotherapy, radiation therapy or childbirth can also be the cause.
Do women lose their hair as much as men?
If baldness affects all sexes, you should know that women suffer less than men. At 40, 1 in 2 men lose their hair, while only 2 in 10 women do.
This subject was studied by James Hamilton of American Yale University in the 1950s. At the time, he observed twins, one of whom was losing his hair while the other was not at all balding.
Hamilton discovered that the latter had been castrated at some point in his life. To confirm his hypothesis, he decided to observe a hundred castrated prisoners. The result turned out to be the same: they did not lose their hair.
This study determined the role of testosterone in hair loss. Concretely, this male hormone is transformed into dihydrotestosterone. The latter slows down hair growth by accelerating its aging, which refines it and ultimately prevents its regrowth.
This process is also found in women. However, because their body produces ten times less testosterone, hair loss is less. Moreover, some of them stop losing them when they are pregnant, because the rise in estrogen levels during this period cancels the phenomenon.
What are the measures to take in the event of baldness?
While baldness is usually caused by a testosterone problem, it can also be caused by other factors. There are certain diseases that can cause hair loss in both men and women. Therefore, it is necessary to precisely determine the cause of hair loss in a person.
