The Cause Of Male Hair Loss

For millions of men male hair loss is something they deal with everyday when looking in the mirror. Here we'll explain what causes men to loose their hair.

Male hair loss is the most common type of hair loss and is caused by a man's sensitivity to the male sex hormones. Certain parts of a man's scalp are extremely sensitive to these hormones, which circulate in the blood stream. These hormones cause the hair follicle to shrink, inhibiting normal hair growth in those areas. This typically begins between the ages of 20 and 30 with a receding hair line. The male hair loss then follows a pattern and, in some cases, all the hair on the top of the head is lost.

While there are medical treatments which help to slow down or reverse male hair loss they can be expensive and do not work for everyone. Thankfully, the stigma against balding men is changing and today a clean shaven head is not only seen as acceptable but is actually very trendy right now. A man with male hair loss must decide how much loosing his hair really bothers him. There are ways to combat it but a clean shaven head looks great and is the easier route to take.
