Can you help balding?
In some men, baldness is inevitable due to genetics, however there are things that can contribute to baldness in an early age. Construction and demolition workers can end up balding due to the pollution, chemicals, cement, sand, dirt and other residues in the environment that can get under the hair line and scalp, that can cause loss of hair. If proper measures are not taken often, like moisturizing the scalp, massaging and nourishing; then these people will lose their hair. Some people can do but so much, and lately more and more women are turning up bald as well. Wikipedia Quote: "Baldness involves the state of lacking hair where it often grows, especially on the head. The most common form of baldness is a progressive hair thinning condition called androgenic alopecia or "male pattern baldness" that occurs in adult male humans and other species. The amount and patterns of baldness can vary greatly; it ranges from male and female pattern alopecia (androgenic alopecia, also called androgenetic alopecia or alopecia androgenetica), alopecia areata, which involves the loss of some of the hair from the head, and alopecia totalis, which involves the loss of all head hair, to the most extreme form, alopecia universalis, which involves the loss of all hair from the head and the body." Genetics and baldness: "Large studies in 2005 and 2007 stress the importance of the maternal line in the inheritance of male pattern baldness. German researchers name the androgen receptor gene as the cardinal prerequisite for balding. They conclude that a certain variant of the androgen receptor is needed for AGA to develop. In the same year the results of this study were confirmed by other researchers. This gene is recessive and a female would need two X chromosomes with the defect to show typical male pattern alopecia. Seeing that androgens and their interaction with the androgen receptor are the cause of AGA it seems logical that the androgen receptor gene plays an important part in its development." Baldness
