Baldness causes

There are many causes for hair loss, although the most common ones are aging and genetic predisposition:

genes

Genetic causes: Baldness is usually hereditary: in this case, the process is irreversible. Other factors like lack of sleep or emotional stress accelerate hair loss. There is also a particular type of genetic alopecia, which is rather peculiar, in which the person is born without any hair.

Hormones

Hormonal problems: Elevated levels of testosterone, malfunctioning of the thyroid gland, the ovaries, the pituitary and adrenal glands may also cause hair loss.

Eating disorders

Eating disorders: Malnutrition, lack of vitamins, anemia, problems to absorb nutrients and illnesses such as anorexia affect hair development directly. Deficiencies of proteins or fat, which are typical of those following strict diet to lose weight can also lead to the same result.

Chemical and pharmacological products

Chemical and pharmacological products: The use of certain chemical products such as chemotherapy, employed on cancer treatments and the consumption of certain drugs such as beta blockers (β-blockers) used to treat heart conditions can lead to hair loss. Some anti-depressants can also have the same effects.

Psychological causes

Psychological causes: In many cases anguish, unpleasant emotional states and acute physical or mental stress caused by different things such as fiber, hemorrhages, puerperium, etc. can trigger baldness.
