Male Pattern Baldness
Are you experiencing Male Pattern Baldness, also called Androgenic Alopecia? If so, you are not alone. Male Pattern Baldness is roughly 95% of what the thinning hair on men is called. It is genetic and can stem from male sex hormones. As men age, the hair follicles on the scalp begin to diminish in size and there comes a point when the last hair in the follicle falls out, no more hair grows in. This is where it can get tricky, though because even though no more hair might be growing in that area, the follicle is not dead and hair could possibly still grow more hair. Yes, early hair thinning is not always permanent. However, in cases where the hair loss is advanced, restoration and replacement options should be explored. Women also suffer from this, but it is called female pattern hair loss. The frequency is not believed to be as high as in men but it is still devastating.
In dealing with hair loss, you are not alone. There is nothing to be ashamed of when roughly 70% of men experience this in their life at one time or another. Every individual is unique and rare and can experience their balding in different ways and at different ages. In some men, their hairline begins to recede and fall back, the hair at the front can become thinner and look a little more fragile than the hair in the back of the head. Some men experience their hair loss on the sides of the head while others in the crowd. No one case is the same! For this reason, it is so important to have a doctor take a look at what is happening on your own scalp so he can give you the best recommendations of what would be best for you.
