What is Hair Loss?    
Hair loss is a generalized term characterizing loss of hair well in excess of the normal 50-100 hair strands per day. In certain cases even though the hair loss is within normal limits, for various reasons, the body stops growing new hair, leading to a gradual state of baldness.

Female Pattern Baldness    
Female pattern baldness, also known as alopecia diffusa, is a common cause of hair loss in women. It is characterized by diffuse loss of hair from the scalp. The mechanism of female pattern baldness is believed to be very similar to that of male pattern baldness, with the bulk of the damage being done due to hormonal changes in the body.
Male Pattern Baldness    
Male pattern baldness is the most common cause of baldness seen in men. Triggered primarily due to the male hormone DHT (dihydrotestosterone), this can begin in some males as early as in their teens or twenties.
The truth of the matter is everybody experiences hair loss on a daily basis. No one is immune. The problem though is when the hair thins to the degree the scalp becomes fully visible. At that point you are experiencing what is commonly referred to as female and male pattern baldness. Why is this occurring ? In simplified terms your hair loss rate is exceeding your hair replacement rate. To reverse the process you want to slow the hair loss rate or equalize it to the replacement rate. When the rates are equal you have a full head of hair, similar to what most people had in their late teens.
Hair volume, typically, refers to the number of hairs per square inch. If you want to know your hair volume, follow this easy way to find out the volume of your hair: pull your hair back to make a ponytail. If the bottom of the ponytail is very slim, your hair volume is thin. Another sign of thin volume is visibility of scalp when your hair is wet. If your ponytail is "two-fisted" and appears exactly like a horse's tail, you have a thick hair volume type. Moreover, if your scalp is not visible when you hair is wet, your hair is a thick volume type. And in case you fall between these two categories, then you probably have a medium hair volume type, which is the most common hair volume type.
Premature graying of the hair and premature hair loss are, of course, two completely separate beasts. You are apt to see a 30-year-old man with a full head of gray or white hair, or a man of the same age that his nearly or totally bald. Homeopathic treatment for hair fall and loss at times comes to the perfect and long lasting rescue. Most of the hair fall conditions can be very effectively treated within the range and reach of this very medical world, involving humble amounts of remedies. Homeopathic treatment for hair fall depends upon the `causative factor` and the constitution of the patient as well.
Thinning hair is a major cosmetic problem for many women. Although it is socially acceptable in our culture for men to be balding, or even fully bald, most women feel uncomfortable with this hairstyle. If your hair is naturally thin or has become that way due to excessive bleaching or other issues.
Hair length is measured (in centimeters or inches) from the scalp line on the forehead up over the head and down the back. The latest of homeopathic approach treats hair loss not on the scalp but from within, internally. By Homeopathy treatment you can easily increase your hair length.
