Male and Female pattern baldness.


Baldness typically refers to excessive hair loss from your scalp. This condition is called androgenic alopecia. 

Men with this condition, called male pattern baldness, can begin suffering hair loss as early as their teens or early 20s.  

Women with this condition, called female pattern baldness, mostly don't experience noticeable thinning until their 40s or later. 


  • Female pattern baldness
  1. Thinning of hair on the top and crown of the head; widening of the centre part of the hair leaving the front hairline unaffected
  2. Hair thinning
  3. Hair fall
  • Male pattern baldness
  1. Hair loss typically on the top and front of the head
  2. Hair thinning
  3. Hair fall

Androgenic alopecia can be correlated with Khalitya disease described in Ayurveda. According to ayurveda there are three elements present in our body : vata, pitta and kapha which should be in balance. In Khalitya , aggravation of all the elements can be seen. Aggravated Vata and Pitta causes hair fall and Imbalanced kapha along with Raktha (Blood) blocks the hair follicles so no chance of regrowth of hair. 


  1. Family history (heredity)
  2. Hormonal changes - An underactive thyroid gland or any other hormonal disturbance such as PCOS and Diabetes
  3. Medical conditions - scalp infections such as ringworm, and a hair-pulling disorder called trichotillomania
  4. Excessive Hairstyles and treatments
  5. Radiation therapy to the head
  6. Certain Medications and supplements -  such as those used for cancer, arthritis, depression, heart problems, gout and high blood pressure
