Why Am I Losing My Hair
Over 90% of all cases of male hair loss in Canada is due to a condition called male Pattern baldness (correct name Androgenetic Alopecia), the remaining 10% being linked to stress, lifestyle and adverse reactions to medications.
How To Identify Male Pattern Baldness
This problem is simple to diagnose as it always follows a pretty predictable pattern of stages. At first the hairline begins to recede, usually starting at the brow and temples, it also begins to get thinner at the crown area, usually leaving the sides and back of the head with good hair growth.
Causes Of Male Pattern Baldness
This is caused by male hormones called Androgens and the effect they have on the hair producing follicles. Often a genetic problem, it occurs when the hormone testosterone is changed into a compound called DHT( Dihydrotestosterone). This attacks the hair follicles, reducing hair production which eventually shuts down all together.
Hair Growth experts are still confounded to this day as to why its only the hair follicles at the front and top of the head are affected by DHT.
Is Male Hair Loss Genetic
There is every chance that if male members of your direct family have lost their hair that you will follow suit. It is not the case 100% of the time, but highly likely. Age, and general health will also have a marked effect on hair loss.
