Male Pattern Baldness

Testosterone and Men's Hair Loss

       At first, when men notice hair loss, they usually attempt to hide it by changing their hairstyle, and or wearing hats. They ask themselves, "Why me"? We understand that hair loss can have a significant effect on your self-esteem, and that many don't understand how strong the effects can be. Fortunately, men now have many options in their fight against hair loss and Male Pattern Baldness, and we are here to explain them all to you.

       Male Pattern Baldness (MPB) or Androgenetic Alopecia, is a genetic condition that results in permanent hair loss. MPB is a result of hormonal activity. Testosterone in the scalp breaks down, creating Dihydrotestosterone (DHT). The conversion from testosterone to DHT is driven by an enzyme called 5-alpha reductase, which is produced in the prostate, various adrenal glands, and in the scalp. Over time, the action of DHT causes the hair follicle to degrade, while shortening the anagen phase, causing the hair follicle to weaken and ultimately perish. In lament terms, men start too bald.

       Interestingly though, the follicle is technically still alive and connected to a good blood supply, however over time it will grows smaller and smaller. Some follicles will gradually die, but most will simply shrink to the size they were when you were born, thus producing weaker hairs. With a steadily shorter growing cycle, more hairs are shed. The hairs continue becoming thinner until they are too fine to survive daily wear and tear. Now thanks to Male Pattern Baldness, men's hair gradually changes from being long, thick, coarse and pigmented, to being fine and in weak sprouts.

       Psychologically, men feel and believe their hair "is" their identity and a massive part of their sexuality; understandable considering the attention the media gives to hair and "sexiness" of it. This makes it even more difficult for men to accept the loss of their hair, and to stay confident without it. Even though it seems as if bald men have starting to become "in vogue", many men do not want their hair taken away from them. The fact still remains that most men simply look better, younger, healthier and have more confidence with a full head of hair.
