• Abstract

    This review aims to consolidate recent advancements in understanding the various contributors to hair loss, shedding light on this intricate phenomenon's established and emerging facets. Despite the considerable impact on individuals, the complex nature of hair loss poses challenges in diagnosis and treatment, necessitating a nuanced exploration of contributing factors. By synthesizing findings from genetic studies, hormonal analyses, nutritional assessments, and investigations into environmental influences, I aim to provide an up-to-date and cohesive understanding of the intricate web of factors contributing to hair loss.
