Baldness, or androgenetic alopecia, may result from genetics or a scalp infection or skin disorder. There are various treatment options available to slow hair loss or stimulate hair growth. A person should discuss these treatments with us.
Prevention is often one of the best approaches to managing a health condition. In some cases, it may be possible to prevent — or at least slow down — hair loss. Though this will depend on the underlying cause.

- Avoiding harsh treatments and hair styles
- Switching medications to avoid the side effect of hair loss, if possible
- Avoiding pulling or twisting hair
