Inflammation is an umbrella concept in pattern baldness that is given little attention in the mainstream. Polyunsaturated fats, mast cell migration and activation, prostaglandins, inflammatory cytokines, and the fibrotic environment these substances promote all appear to be involved in the progression of "the baldness field." Luckily, simple, safe, and available substances such as apigenin, naringenin, aspirin, and gelatin can help guard against the harmful effects of these inflammatory substances and in some cases help restore coherence to fibrotic tissues.
