Balding – Male Hair Loss

The statistics for hair loss in the United States are very alarming. According to research, it is estimated that around 50% of the population of American men suffers from not mere hair loss, but severe hair loss. In the societal context, loosing hair and going bald is not taboo or embarrassing. However, from a personal viewpoint, going bald can diminish one’s confidence and self-esteem.

One of the primary reasons for the triggering of hair loss in men is attributed to heredity. Also known as Androgenetic Alopecia, male baldness is identified by medical professionals as the primary causative factor for loss of hair in men. A person can inherit this condition from either one of his parents. The initial symptoms of Androgenetic Alopecia normally involve a hairline which starts receding while hair thinning at the crown follows. As time passes, these symptoms combine to bring about an appearance in hair similar to that of a horseshoe shape. This hair shape is formed at the sides and the back of the head.

Normally, when the amount of DHT hormone in a person’s scalp increases, the inherited DHT-prone follicles of hair get affected and it results in the shrinkage of the follicles. When this ‘shrinkage’ occurs, the hair which gets produced from them becomes very thin. Moreover, shrunk hair follicles make the period of growth of hair shorter, which results in the hair having less time to reach its maximum length. Interestingly, hair follicles which are located at the back and the sides of the head aren’t affected by DHT.
