Androgenetic alopecia is the scientific name for being genetically predispositioned for pattern baldness. This applies to both men and women. Genetic predisposition, or inheritance, is the leading cause of baldness. Ninety-five percent of baldness cases are due to genetics. Pattern baldness is also quite aggressive, never stopping on its own. You must find a treatment if you wish to slow or stop this process.

I have rarely met a man who did not have a slight fear of pattern baldness. The only ones who do not fear this come from a long line of men with beautiful heads of hair. Even in that, however, there is still a little wish that the tides will not suddenly turn on them. If you were born with androgenetic alopecia, there is nothing you can do when you are younger, such as eat your green vegetables, to stop it from stealing your hair. Genetics are genetics and that's that.

Your Options with Androgenetic Alopecia

If you know that you have pattern baldness, do not worry so much that you lose more hair. There are many products on the market that can inhibit further loss, stop the loss and even begin re-growth. You can find all-natural products, oral products and ones that you rub into your scalp. Read up on as many as you can before you decide to buy. Just because you keep hearing a brand name over and over again does not mean that it will work for you.

When looking into chemical products versus all-natural ones for androgenetic alopecia, you will generally find information telling you that there are two main medicines that are most effective. These are the ones found in chemical products. Herbal products are usually not reviewed in this way, but can be equally (or more) successful. Ask around and take a look at statistics.
