Thinning of hair is a problem for women also.
When I was young, I used to see only matured and aged people with bald heads. But in modern times, many young people, even in their teens are going bald.

The natural question is what causes the hair fall in men and women?

The hair loss may be due to genetic factors, that means that if your parents or grand parents were bald then it is more likely that you will also have thin hair or go bald.

There are other factors responsible for hair fall such as aging, hormonal imbalance, stress, deficiencies of iron and folic acid, excessive intake of vitamin A, fungus in scalp, smoking, thyroid disorder, drastic weight loss, certain medicines beta-blockers, anti-depressants, etc.

The hair follicles can be blocked by dandruff (dandruff natural remedy), sebum or dead skin cells, or it can occur due to some skin disease or illness.

Baldness and hair loss is a problem not only for men, but millions of women are also affected by it. In women, generally the baldness develops late in life, but in men the balding and hair loss begins quite early in life. The male pattern of hair loss (alopecia) is different than female pattern baldness.

Women in general can develop baldness due to hormonal imbalances or thyroid disorders.  Mothers of newborn babies may have temporary hair loss after the delivery.
