A few men are only in their twenties when they begin to lose hair, but by the time men reach their fifties, more than 50% of them have what doctors would call ‘significant hair loss’. While some of the loss could be caused by scalp infections, diseases, or by habits like pulling out the hair, for most men it falls into the category of male pattern baldness, also called androgenetic alopecia.

What is Male Pattern Baldness (MPB)

Male pattern baldness is due at least partly to your genes, and an inherited susceptibility to certain chemicals present in the body. It is very common, and it is not a disease, even though for many of us it probably gives as much grief as one.

It might be genetic, but that does not mean there is nothing you can do about it. Much research has gone into hair loss, and scientists and doctors now understand the mechanism of male pattern baldness much better than they used to, and they have developed many innovative treatments for MPB-related hair loss in men.
