What Causes Male Pattern Baldness?
Although there are several causes of hair loss, male pattern baldness (also referred to as androgentic alopecia or hereditary hair loss) accounts for about 95% of hair loss in men.
How male pattern baldness happens:
A combination of hereditary factors, hormone activity, and age result in a shortening of the hair growth cycle and a gradual inactivation of hair follicles.
As the condition progresses, follicles gradually produce finer, shorter, less-visible hairs, and eventually can become incapable of producing visible hair.
