It is well-understood that the autoimmune system has a key role in the occurrence of hair loss or baldness issue. The problem of pattern baldness or AGA (Androgenic alopecia) occurs when an immune system of the body mistakenly attacks the hair follicle and thus hair loss occurs, which may be devastating if not treated properly at the right time with the right treatment method. When the immune system fails to respond in a right manner and also hormone is at play, i.e., Testosterone (male sex hormone) that converted into DHT (Di-hydro Testosterone) as a result of the catalytic action of 5-alpha-reductase accelerates the case of AGA or Androgenic alopecia).
