Hair loss in men is so common that as many as 85% of all men will experience considerable thinning or balding before the age of 50. While anyone can experience hair loss, it’s more typical in men than women. Unfortunately, many men will keep their hair loss hidden under hats or let it go untreated. It is important to remember that there are solutions that really work. Get the facts so you can make the right decision when it comes to restoring your hair.
What Is Male Pattern Baldness?
Male pattern baldness refers to a loss of scalp hair in men. This occurs as a man’s hormone levels change during the aging process. Although hair loss is a natural part of the aging process, it still takes a toll on many men. Male pattern baldness is hereditary. It is the most common reason men lose their hair. Early in the process, men will notice a receding hairline beginning at the temples or thinning at the crown. As the condition advances, the hairline recedes to the point where it meets the bald spot at the top of the head. Eventually, all that remains is the hair around the sides and back of the head.
Men with this condition have inherited hair follicles that are sensitive to a hormone that causes the follicles to miniaturize and thin over time. Eventually, the follicles will no longer produce normal hairs and will only grow miniaturized hairs, which are almost undetectable. This type of hair loss can begin at puberty and is progressive, which means it is best to do something early on. The sooner you act, the more options you’ll have.
Common Signs of Balding
- A significant change in the way your hair reacts to being styled
- Thinning around the hairline or receding around the temples
- Hair growth is slower and thinner than usual
- You’ve started noticing more than normal hair on your clothes, in the sink, or shower
How much hair loss is normal?
It is normal to lose 50-100 strands a day. If you're noticing your hair getting thinner, it’s time to see a medical professional.
