Male Pattern Baldness
Male pattern baldness is a condition that frustrates millions of men in the United States and around the world.
Are you experiencing signs of hair loss? Do you have thinning hair and are frustrated that it won’t stop? Have you been told that hair loss runs in your family?
Well, you might have male pattern baldness, which is hereditary, but you can do something about it!
Male pattern baldness, or androgenic alopecia, is the most common type of hair loss for men, affecting over half of all men over the age of 50 to some extent. The age at which the condition strikes is variable, with around three in ten men experiencing some hair loss by the time they reach the age of 30.
Causes of Male Pattern Baldness
Male pattern baldness is hereditary, which means that it derives from the genes a man has inherited. It is linked to a hormone called dihydrotestosterone, or DHT, which is created from the male hormone, testosterone. When a man produces too much DHT, his sensitive hair follicles shrink, resulting in the production of shorter and finer hair strands. Over time, the affected hair follicles become unable to produce new hair strands, resulting in visible hair loss.
Characteristics of Male Pattern Baldness
Male pattern baldness generally starts with thinning of the hair at the sides and top of the scalp, which forms an M-shape pattern of hair growth. Gradually, the hair becomes thinner and finer, creating a U-shape pattern of hair growth around the sides of the head. In some men, the hair continues to thin, leaving the scalp completely bald within as little as five years.
What Can You Do About Male Pattern Baldness?
Some men are accepting of their hair loss and do not feel the need to seek treatment for the condition. However, others feel emotional distress and are looking for viable men’s hair loss solutions that actually work so they can feel good about their appearance and themselves again.
The unfortunate fact is that there is no cure for male pattern baldness and men who are genetically predisposed to androgenetic alopecia (hereditary hair loss) will continue to lose their hair. However, non-surgical hair replacement can be an affordable, long-term solution that millions of men have chosen and who have found it gives them their day-to-day freedom and confidence back.
