'Hair Loss' (Baldness)
Nearly 8 million men in the United Kingdom experience 'hair loss', losing hair is a fact of life. Infact 25% of men under 30 start losing their hair and over 60% by the age of 60. There is a 4 in 7 chance of getting the baldness gene.
What is 'Male Pattern baldness' (Androgenic alopecia)
This is where the hair starts receding from the sides of the forehead (receding hair line), it is normally starts in men from the mid twenties to mid thirties but can be seen in some teenagers.
Another bald patch can occur on top of the head (vertex). The trigger for this sort of baldness is DHT (Dihydrotestosterone), a powerful sex hormone. DHT promotes growth in both body hair and facial hair, and can adversely affect the prostate as well as the hair on top of your head.
It is the most common cause of hair loss and thinning, science does not fully understand how DHT and hair loss combine. In genetically prone scalps, the follicles hair shaft shrinks causing fragile hair or non-existent hair.

Causes of Androgenic alopecia
Different genetic and even some environmental factors seem to play a role in male pattern baldness. Scientists have studied the condition in detail for years and many factors that contribute to this problem are still unknown.
What we do know is that hair loss is linked to hormones called "androgens", the key hormone is dihydrotesterone (DHT). Androgens are key in controlling hair growth and in sexual development during puberty.
