Baldness implies no hair on the head. In humans, baldness generally means androgenic alopecia or "male pattern baldness" or its variant "female pattern baldness". This syndrome occurs in adult male and some female humans and other species. The degree and pattern of baldness can vary greatly; it includes male and female pattern alopecia (androgenic alopecia). This syndrome is also called androgenetic alopecia or alopecia androgenetica. An older term is alopecia seborrheica, used primarily in Europe.
Symptoms of Hair Loss

Following are the major hair loss symptoms:

1. Falling of hairs.
2. Thinning of hairs
Causes of Hair Loss
Following are the major hair loss causes:

1. Lack of vitamins (specially vitamin B6 and folic acid) in diet
2. Inadequate nutrition and improper diet
3. Stress, worry, anxiety, and sudden shock
4. Heredity factors
5. Prolonged Illness (like typhoid, syphilis, chronic cold, influenza, and anaemia)
6. Unclean condition of the scalp
7. Poor blood circulation 

Lack of vitamins, insufficient nutrition

The most vital cause of hair loss is insufficient nutrition. Persons lacking in vitamin B6 lose their hair and those lacking in folic acid often become totally bald. But the hair grows generally after the liberal intake of these vitamins.

Stress, Prolonged Illness, impure conditions

Other important causes of hair loss are stress such as worry, anxiety, and unexpected shock, general weakness caused by severe or long standing illnesses like typhoid, syphilis, chronic cold, influenza, and anaemia; an unclean situation of the scalp which weakens the hair roots by jamming the pores with the collected dirt; and heredity

  1. Female hair loss is a surprisingly common health concern for many women today. Many women at various stages of their lives can encounter thinning hair and dramatic hair loss, for a number of reasons, such as genetic factors and hormonal changes associated with pregnancy and childbirth as well as menopause.
