Hair fall

Keratinized epithelium
Keratin is protein that makes up hair and stimulates hair growth.

Reasons for hair fall

Age. With age, most people notice some hair loss because hair growth slows. At some point, hair follicles stop growing hair, which causes the hair on our scalp to thin. Hair also starts to lose its color.

Can be result of

2)hormonal changes,

4)Normal aging

Baldness is excessive hairloss from your scalp . Heredity is common cause of baldness.


Acne is a common skin condition that happens when hair follicles under the skin become clogged.
