Male Pattern Baldness

The most common form of hair loss is known as “Male Pattern Baldness” . In Male Pattern Baldness, the hormone DHT (Dihydrotestesterone) acts on genetically vulnerable follicles to produce progressively thinner, shorter, more brittle hair with a weaker shaft. Over time, the thinning hair may eventually die out completely.

This form of hair loss usually affects a certain area of the head, such as the front or crown, while leaving areas like the back of the head and sides relatively untouched. A typical result of Male Pattern Baldness is a horseshoe of hair growth around the bald patch. Because the remaining hair is unaffected by the DHT, it keeps its characteristics and continues growing even after being transplanted to thinning areas.
