The life cycle of normal human hair is approximately five years. With male pattern baldness these hairs are not always replaced by new hair and gradually bald spots or areas begin to appear. Age is not necessarily an indicator or factor in predicting when male pattern baldness will occur.

Genetic male pattern baldness hair loss is characterized by hair receding from the sides of the forehead, hence the term “receding hairline.”

ANDROGENETIC ALOPECIA is the most common cause of hair loss and balding in men. It represents almost 95% of all male hair loss.

Other types of male hair loss include:

Generally thought to be an autoimmune disorder. Causes “patchy” hair loss, often in small circular areas in different areas of the scalp.
Total hair loss of the scalp, (an advanced form of alopecia areata).
Hair loss of the entire body, (also an advanced form of alopecia areata).
A sudden, diffuse hair loss caused by an interruption in the normal hair growth cycle as a result of trauma, such as chemotherapy, major surgery, severe stress, or severe chronic illness.
A compulsive disorder causing hair loss from the continual compulsive pulling of the hair.

Men’s pattern hair loss is a common condition, occurring in approximately one-third of all men worldwide.

Male hair loss and male pattern baldness, as well as other types of temporary and permanent hair loss in men can be corrected with appropriate male hair loss restoration or replacement solutions.
