VERIFY: What causes some to go bald?

There are several things that can cause hair loss but the most common reason behind baldness is due to heredity and family genes.

It's an age-old problem and a question on many people's minds: Why do men and women go bald?

Family history, genetics definitely play a key role but the KHOU 11 Verify team is looking into what other factors could contribute to hair loss.

Poor nutrition, hormonal changes, medication and stress can all cause hair loss for both men and women.

Treatments like hair growth drugs like Minoxidil, also known as Rogaine, for men and women can help.

Eating a well-balanced diet and avoiding tight hairstyles can also help prevent hair loss.
