Baldness or alopecia refers to the falling of hair or absence of hair on the head. It is the most common disorder among men. Hair is found on each and every part of the body except the hands, palms and soles of the feet. Hair is formed in minute pockets in the skin called follicles. An up growth at the base of follicle produces hair when a special group of cells turn amino acids into keratin, a type of protein, of which hair is made. The rate of production of these building blocks determines hair growth. There is a balance in the hair growth and falling of hair. Any problem in the body system can disturb this balance causing more of hair loss and finally baldness.
