Why Do People Go Bald?


People normally go bald as a result of hormone imbalance where certain parts of the head become sensitive to the male hormone testosterone. This in return reduces the density of hair growth although baldness can also be hereditary.

People go bald because of genetic factors. Conditions such as alopecia areata(male pattern-baldness) and alopecia totalis(complete baldness) will cause a man's level of dihydrotestosterone, or DHT, to be higher than that of the average man. This hormone builds up in hair follicles and, over time, will impair their function and finally kill them.On an interesting note, men whose testicles are surgically removed have lower levels of general testosterone, including DHT, and never go bald.It's probably better to just go ahead and go bald gracefully.
There are several factors that can lead to baldness. It is a inherited gene, it can also be caused by wearing hats. In women those who wear their hair in tight pony tails can develop baldness. Baldness can also be caused by a lack of good nutrition or a thyroid problem.
