It can be hereditary or may occur secondary to medical illness, hormonal changes or drugs. It may affect men, women and children. A normal individual sheds 50 to 100 hairs per day, but it is not noticeable as new hair growth occurs simultaneously.
A hair transplant is a surgical technique aimed at treating baldness in males or females. In this procedure, hair follicles are transferred from one part of the body (donor site) to the other part which is balding (recipient site).

It is known as platelet rich plasma therapy. PRP is a non-surgical therapeutic option for patients who require stimulation of hair growth for hair loss conditions. It seeks to harvest natural growth factors found in the blood.
