The hair is constantly falling out and regenerating in cycles that last for months, but if you notice more hair on the pillow or when the hair in the tufts stays on the comb or brush after combing, it is a sign that something is wrong with the hair. The appearance of several small parts without hair on the scalp indicates a disease called alopecia.

Androgenic or androgenetic alopecia is the most common type of hair loss (as much as 95% of all alopecia) in men and women, and is also called male, genetic or hereditary baldness. In men, it usually begins to appear between the ages of twenty and thirty, and in women it occurs somewhat later, usually at menopause when hormonal changes occur in the body.

The cause of androgenic alopecia is the stimulation of hair follicles by male sex hormones (androgens), with the participation of other factors, such as heredity and aging. Severe hair loss can be the result of a lack of minerals and protein, and is sometimes associated with anemia, fatigue, or problems with the endocrine glands. Hair loss can be associated with alcoholism or some medications. Completely bald parts surrounded by normal hair can be associated with thyroid dysfunction, and sometimes the reason for hair loss is psychological in nature.
