Genetic hair loss (androgenetic alopecia): Hair colour changes

Does hair change colour during genetic hair loss?

Genetic hair loss (also called androgenetic alopecia). Hair not only becomes thinner during the course of genetic hair loss - but often becomes lighter in color too.

The photo on the right shows dark coloured hairs surrounding by numerous lighter coloured hairs. This can sometimes be seen through the course of hereditary thinning.
