The majority of hair loss in men is due to genetics. Male Pattern Baldness, also known as androgenic alopecia, is a hereditary condition affecting more than two-thirds of all males. It is the result of hormonal changes that cause the hair follicle to shrink and grow at a steadily slower rate. Eventually, growth ceases completely, usually in a predictable pattern.
We all know that hair loss changes how we look, but it can also affect how we feel about ourselves. Perhaps you’re experiencing lower self-esteem or feeling less confident at work and social situations. Our society identifies the loss of hair with growing older and slowing down.
Once you identify the kind of hair loss you have, you can begin to take action to treat and prevent it from progressing.
