Hair loss in men is common. and Commonest cause is Androgenic Alopecia which accounts for more than 90 percent cases of hair loss. It is caused due to their sensitivity to Androgens in some areas of the scalp. This is usually a genetic trait. The hormones cause the hair follicles to shrink. They finally become so small that the follicle is unable to produce any hair. Even if the follicles are active, they cannot perform the activity of hair growth. The pattern of balding in men normally follows a fixed pattern. It starts as early as 20 years of age up to even 30 years of age. The hair on top of the head starts thinning and a receding hairline develops. The male hair loss pattern is called androgenic alopecia.A typical U-shape is formed around the sides of the head and back when balding is complete. The hair in this U-shape is very thin and does not grow as it normally would.
Other types of baldness in men are Alopecia Areata, Alopecia Totalis and Alopecia Universalis, which is an autoimmune disorder, a complete baldness of the head and a complete loss of hair on the head and body, respectively.
Hair loss in men is a genetic disposition carried on from one generation to another. Intermittent oral treatments might be available but have proven futile. Baldness is not a disease but a natural process.
Various other reasons can lead to hair loss like stress, trauma, immune disturbances, hormonal disturbances, infections, nutritional deficiencies, improper dieting, any major medical illness, medications, chemical treatment of hairs, etc. Goenka Skin Clinic and Hair Transplantation Clinic, Gujarat offers Hair Loss Treatment For Men In India.
