Hair Loss

What are the Hair Loss Types that are Common in Males?

Male Pattern Hair Loss or Androgenetic Alopecia

Male pattern baldness is the commonest form of hair loss in men. It is found to affect nearly 50 million men in the U.S. It begins with hair loss above the temples. With time the hair loss continues to occur around the top of the head. In some cases hair loss also occurs on the sides and rear of the head which leads to complete baldness. Most men affected with male pattern hair loss avoid treatment however the treatment can prevent further hair loss and can regrow hair. This condition is also called androgenetic alopecia. It generally takes 15-25 years to get completely bald. But some men get bald even before five years.

Typically the hair firstly starts thinning at the temples (sides). On the same time hair generally gets thin at the top of the head. The bald patch slowly appears at the middle of the scalp. The bald patches and receding sides slowly get enlarged and they join together. This condition slowly lefts a man with complete baldness of scalp. Read More

Telogen effluvium is the second most common type of hair loss that occurs in men. It occurs when the hair follicles producing hair changes. 80%-90% of the hair follicles on the scalp are actively growing hair at any time. The others are in resting or telogen phase. Men who suffer from telogen effluvium will have a large number of hair follicles shift into the telogen phase resulting in hair loss. Read More
