Classifications for Hair Loss in Men

Read classifications for Hair Loss in Men with details

Male pattern baldness is the most common cause of hair loss in men, accounting for more than 95% of hair loss cases. Male pattern baldness is a type of androgenetic alopecia that causes hair follicles to shrink gradually due to genetic and hormonal factors. Hair follicles that are sensitive to dihydrotestosterone (DHT) produce hair strands that grow thinner and shorter over time until they eventually stop producing hair all together. In addition to male pattern baldness, hair loss in men can also be caused by external factors like stress, poor nutrition, or medications.

Thinning hair and hair loss in men are common occurrences, but they don’t appear the same way for everyone. If you are a man, recognizing the type of male hair loss you have is a first step to determining the ideal treatment plan – an ‘After Hair’ Counselor is available via an in-person and free consultation to help you understand your hair loss and treatment options.
