There are a number of causes of hair loss in men. The most common one is Androgenic alopecia or more commonly, Pattern Baldness. By the age of 50 years old, 50% of the population of men will have been affected by pattern baldness in their own specific way.
Causes of Pattern Baldness
Yap! Your genes! If you come from a line of balding men, you can be sure their looks or brains are not the only things you’ll inherit. You get their pattern balding too.
Some men have a higher number of androgen receptors on each hair follicle. The hair follicle will also have a higher sensitivity than normal to androgen and this will result in more of a pronounced hair loss effect.
A higher proportion of the DHT to testosterone hormones also speeds up the hair loss process in men. It does this by breaking down and interfering with the cycle of your hair growth. It will slow it down.
When the hair cycle has been interfered with there are longer periods when your hair is in the resting phase. This means that it isn’t growing during this period. This causes your hair to thin out and weaken. These brittle hairs then fall out, leaving you bald in the affected area.
Scalp infections such as dandruff and other fungal infections could also be responsible for pattern balding.
Lack of certain nutrients in your body or their presence in insufficient amounts could contribute to pattern balding.
Disease and Medication
More serious causes of pattern balding could be the result of illnesses such as cancer, thyroid conditions or even anabolic steroids.
There are medications that are known to have hair loss listed as one of the side effects.
This is the protective layer that every single strand of hair has. It plays two crucial roles. One is the role of shielding your hair from environmental damage. The second role the cuticle layer plays is that of locking in moisture and oils. When this layer is damaged for one reason or the other, it will separate and peel away. This action leaves it compromised and as a result, oil and moisture are allowed to escape, leaving your hair dry and prone to pattern balding.
