What is baldness?

Baldness is the loss of hair. 

There are a variety of forms of baldness that humans experience.

For men and women, baldness may occur for different reasons. 

Check out these facts about baldness below: 

  • It is normal to lose fifty to one hundred hairs every day.
  • People with healthy hair grow new hair daily to replace the ones they lose. 
  • By age fifty, eighty-five percent of men will experience male pattern baldness. 

The causes of hair loss depend on several factors, including genetics, illness, and medications. 

Factors such as stress, chemicals, smoking, or even consuming alcohol may trigger hair loss. 

Even certain hair types, such as braids or tight ponytails, can stress the follicle and cause hair loss. 

How have different cultures dealt with baldness in history? 

Ancient Kemet, or Egypt, is recognized by many as one of the greatest civilizations in history. 

People in Egypt were searching for hair loss cures four thousand years ago. 

In 1500 B.C., they recited magic spells before the sun god and swallowed a tincture of onions, iron, red lead, honey, and alabaster to cure baldness. 

The mixture was unsuccessful. 

Later, they would rub the fat from lions, hippos, crocodiles, cats, snakes, porcupines, and geese on their scalps as a remedy that did not work either. 

They even went as far as sauteeing greyhounds with donkey hoofs to stop hair loss. 

When these natural remedies failed, they resorted to wigs and fake beards. 

How did people deal with hair loss in Greece?

The Egyptians were not the only people concerned with vanity. 

In 460 B.C., Hippocrates rubbed a potion on his scalp of cumin, opium, beets, pigeon feces, and horseradish on his head. 

When his experiment did not work, he began studying other options. 

He found that eunuchs did not suffer from baldness, and he devised a radical surgical treatment for baldness. 

His treatment did not gain popularity as most men did not opt for castration to avoid baldness.

How Influential People Deal With Baldness?

There have been many powerful and influential people who were bald

One of the most famous cases of a prominent figure who sought remedies for hair loss was Julius Ceasar. 

Julius Ceasar is one of the most well-known of all Rome’s leaders, yet he was constantly looking for ways to hide his thinning hair. 

Many people remember or recognize Julius Ceasar for his laurel wreath. 

Little do they know, the wreath was a part of Ceasar’s vanity cover-ups! 

He would wear the wreath to cover his thinning hair. 

Cleopatra famously recommended a mixture of mice teeth, horse teeth, and bear grease, but this did little to help Ceasar grow his hair back. 

If you think comb-overs are new, you may be surprised that they have existed for a long time. 

Caesar was one of the first famous figures to grow his hair long in the back and use it to comb over his bald spot.
