Male Pattern Baldness - What It Is, What Causes It, And How To Treat It

Posted on: . Posted in Hair Today, Here Tomorrow

What is baldness?
Baldness refers to a lack of hair, either partially or completely, which is the result of hair loss and hair thinning. Generally, the intensity and pattern of baldness will vary depending on the cause of baldness. Some types of baldness cause a complete, or nearly complete, loss of hair over the entire body-including the head, arms, legs, and so on. The more common types of baldness cause hair thinning and hair loss on the scalp or head-though, like any other type of baldness; the degree of hair loss may vary from individual case to individual case.
Total hair loss on the head generally occurs more in males than it does females; however, females also experience baldness, more commonly in the form of female pattern baldness which tends to cause hair loss on the top of the head, but not on the sides or back of the head. Male pattern hair loss is the most common type of hair loss in men and, like female pattern hair problems, tends to cause hair problems on the top of the scalp. Both types of "pattern" hair problems tend to begin with thinning in the center of the scalp which gradually increases cause total or near-total hair problems in the entire diameter of the top of the head.
