Hair loss can be a tough thing to deal with for both men and women. While it is normal to lose some hair each day, and as you begin to age, there are other things that could be causing your hair loss as well. The two most common types of hair loss are diffuse pattern alopecia and unpatterned alopecia. And although they may look similar, they have distinct differences in terms of their causes and their treatments.
Nobody wants to be the young, balding guy. But unfortunately, the genetic cards are simply stacked against some of us holding onto our hair for the long haul. Though most men will experience hair loss during their lifetimes, according to GQ, about one-fifth will notice hair thinning in their late-20s. A smaller number even see balding in their teens.
