Hair loss, also known as alopecia, means that a person is losing more hair than usually. Normally, each hair grows approximately 1/4 of inch per month, and continues growing during a maximum of 6 years. Then the hair falls and another grows in its place. Hair loss occurs when the amount of hair that falls outnumbers the one that are being produced.
Generally hair loss or thinning is believed to be a men's issue only. However, all women experience some degree of hair loss or thinning at some point in their lifetime, and two-thirds of them will be severely affected. But, contrarily to what happens to men, hair loss in women typically does not result in complete baldness. In fact, most women suffer hair thinning, which is a loss of hair density (clear areas in the scalp) but not reaching a complete loss of hair.
