How does balding work? Why does it happen? And why are men so much more likely to lose their hair than women?


Think of any of your beloved pets that you had throughout your life. You would probably recognize them from a mile away, in a crowd. Now, imagine your pets completely hairless. You probably can’t. When an animal is without its fur, they’re almost completely unrecognizable. Think about getting a fluffy dog or cat wet; afterwards, it just looks like skin and bones. A lot of what we love about animals are their fur style and colorations. Without the hair (for whatever reason), they just look like little aliens. And the results are either painfully cute… or absolutely terrifying (via).
