Overview of Male Pattern Baldness
In Male pattern baldness, the most common type of hair loss in men is androgenic alopecia. Everybody loses hair, perhaps up to 100 strands a day. They fall out, then grow back in, and again the cycle begins. But ultimately, most people will begin to realize they're losing more than before and it's not growing back. Most of the 85% of men will have some sort of hair loss in their lifetime. It can happen for different reasons.
The two main factors in which men normally lose their hair: genetics and hormones.
Hormonal Cause - the chemical imbalance of a hormone called DHT or dihydrotestosterone is a common cause of male pattern baldness.
DHT is a chemical derivative of testosterone, created when the androgen gets mixed with an enzyme called 5-alpha-reductase, DHT hinders the proper growth of hair follicles. These factors contribute to the gradual shrinkage of the tiny cavities in the skin at the base of hairs, known as scalp hair follicles. Hair grows progressively shorter and finer until no new hairs grow.
Genetic - Several genes are involved, accounting for differing ages of onset, progression, pattern and severity of hair loss in family members. The vulnerability genes are inherited from both mother and father. At this time, genetic testing for prediction of balding is unreliable.
