Argan Oil : The Natural Solution
Baldness affects mainly males. In men, hair loss usually begins between 20 and 35. However, women can suffer, often after pregnancy, or due to a birth control pill not suitable, or at the age of menopause.
On average, men and women lose 50 to 100 hairs a day. This is normal! It is related to the life cycle of the hair. There is a phase of hair growth for 5 years, a period of growth arrest in a few weeks, then a phase of decline and fall which lasts about three months.
In the autumn, for 1 month to 1 ½ months, this fall is more important than during the other months of the year but this seasonality does not abnormal.
In general, the phase drop is followed by regrowth. If, against the final fall is it is called alopecia up a complete baldness.
While the fall seasonal fall persists after its normal period of 4 to 6 weeks, or if hair loss is abnormal for several months, there cause for concern.

In fact, the male hormone androgen shorten the life of the hair. If these male hormones are produced in excessive quantities, the lifetime of hair is accelerating. Their fall becomes too fast. Regrowth is delayed, is in poor condition or no longer involved at all.
