    is severe hair breakage part of Androgenetic Alopecia? I can never get any answers from drs I’ve had severe hair breakage since my hair loss began I stopped dying my hair almost a year ago thinking it was chemicals I don’t use shampoos or any hair products with chemicals no heat what so ever and it’s still breaks until it falls out ims just so stumped as to what to do I mean the hair loss is bad enough but the breakage only makes it worse

    Yes, unfortunately hair breakage is a part of process associated with androgenic alopecia. What’s happening is the miniaturization of the hair follicle which causes the breakage and ultimately hair loss. The breakage is what made me finally go and get a scalp biopsy which confirmed androgenic alopecia. No matter how gentle you are with your hair it’s going to break unless you want to try various treatments such as rogaine, propecia, aldactone, etc. which may help.

    For breakage you can use serums or oil masks like argan, olive, etc. I have Androgenetic Alopecia from 16 years... it's more sensitive and exposed to breakage but with serums and a kerstin spray it's ok.
