Hair loss is usually seen in men, for 95% genetic and hereditary reasons, since men secrete the testosterone hormone. Hair loss begins at the age of 18 and continues to the age of 40, until the hormone loses its effect. There are some medical drugs to prevent hair loss, but these drugs are not recommended since they have a negative effect on reproduction. Another reason for hair loss, is ringworm, which is a disease that occurs with the immune system disorder. Rather than genetic reasons, stress is also very effective on hair loss.
Hair loss in women, is mostly triggered by their thyroid hormones. Other hormone disorders, vitamin deficiencies and blood diseases can trigger hair loss. Chemicals applied to women’s hair, also plays an important role in hair loss.

It can be seen in both men and women. It is also likely to occur in children, may be temporary or permanent, but it is never contagious. The exact cause of ringworm is not detected yet, but it is estimated based on a number of reasons, which are; genetics, immune system and stress.
