Diffuse or generalized hair thinning is the most common hair problem faced by men and women of all ages.
Chronic hair loss may start after a stressful episode such as illness, sudden weight loss, change of environment, post pregnancy or may be related to a poor lifestyle. This condition is commonly diagnosed as Telogen Effluvium.
Another common cause of hair loss is Pattern Baldness. Androgenetic Alopecia is also known as Male Pattern Hair Loss and its female counter part is known as Female Pattern Hair Loss. Pattern baldness is genetically predefined or hereditary.
