If a receding hairline, thinning hair or noticeable bald patches have you spending your days hiding under a baseball cap, you’re not alone. Known medically as androgenic alopecia, male pattern baldness (MPB) is responsible for a whopping 95 percent of hair loss in the male population, according to the American Hair Loss Association. Up to two-thirds of American men will experience some degree of appreciable hair loss by the age of 35, and if that isn’t a wake-up call, by the age of 50, up to 85 percent of American men will endure substantial hair thinning.
While there are different reasons for substantial hair loss in men, such as diseases, stress, medications, diet and other lifestyle choices, the main culprit for male pattern baldness is genetics. Scientists believe that carriers of the MPB gene have hair follicles that are more sensitive to a hormone called DHT, which gradually shrinks the hair follicle and prevents further hair growth over time.
A general rule of thumb for hair loss is that the sooner it starts, the greater the loss will be.
