Genetics Play Role in Scott Caan's Hair Loss

While genetics aren't everything - they do play an undeniable role in hair loss. Approximately 95% of men and 70% of women with thinning hair is caused by a hereditary condition called androgenetic alopecia 

Take actors James and Scott Caan for example, the father and son team not only share the spotlight, but also their struggles with hair loss.

Scott, 34, is already seeing considerable recession in his hairline, which isn't uncommon for men his age. In fact, nearly 30 percent of men in their 30s experience some male pattern baldness. His father also began losing his hair around this same time. 

But luckily, thanks to new technology, hair loss is no longer inevitable - it's optional! 

I'd recommend a regiment of FDA-approved Rogaine or Propecia to help prevent further hair loss. Low level laser therapy can also do wonders at stimulating growth and promoting healthier hair. And if all else fails, there is always hair transplantation. 

Scott would hardly be the first actor to embrace these treatments, more celebrities are investing in hair restoration than ever before. New technology and non-invasive procedures are selling points for many actors looking to enhance their looks discreetly.
