Male-pattern baldness is the most common type of hair loss, affecting approximately 60% of men. About one-quarter of all men start to lose hair before they reach the age of 30.
Many think of hair loss as a condition that affects only men. In fact, about half of all women over the age of 65 experience female-pattern baldness.

No, women can also experience hair loss, although it's more common in men.
No, hair loss treatments like Finasteride and Regaine do not prevent greying. Hair dye can be used alongside these treatments to address greying.
While some treatments may promote new hair growth, the primary focus is to slow down hair loss rather than regrow hair.
