Male pattern baldness is a common condition that affects all men as they age. The condition is marked by a progressive thinning of the hair that eventually leads to baldness. The pattern baldness usually starts at the temples, and the hairline before the crown of the head begins to thin.
In some cases, the baldness can cover the entire crown of the head, which only leaves hair on the sides and back of the head.
What Causes Male Pattern Baldness?
Testosterone is the most important male sex hormone, and it is used for a variety of purposes ranging from sexual function to puberty as well as creating the features that are typical of men, including facial and body hair.
Testosterone is converted to DHT in the body, and DHT reacts with various organs, including hair follicles. Hair follicles are especially sensitive to DHT and create hair follicle miniaturisation which makes hair follicles thinner and shorter as each growth cycle passes. This creates the gradual process of balding on the scalp that is typical of male pattern baldness.
How Common is Male Pattern Baldness?
Most men lose hair as they age, with 20% suffering significant balding in their 20s, while 30% will lose hair in their 30s and 40% in the 40s.
