Male pattern baldness is more common than female pattern baldness. Sixty percent of men will sooner or later suffer from it. Usually this form of baldness is hereditary. Often the hair loss is limited to the crown or the hairline. It can also spread until only hair remains around the skull. The moment the baldness manifests itself differs from person to person. Men who suffer from hair loss at a young age have a good chance of becoming completely bald afterwards. In women, this form of baldness is less common, it is limited to thinning the hair.
The hormonal hair loss is the most common form and arises under the influence of androgens, the male hormones. This hair loss starts from a certain age and occurs in both men and women. In men it usually starts with the shifting of the hairline at the level of the temples. In women, this is more discreet and never progresses to true baldness.
This form of hair loss is hereditary, it cannot be cured, but there are a number of methods to stop hair loss and bring about new hair growth. There is a genetic predisposition that makes the hair root more sensitive to the male hormone in some people, the hairs end their hair cycle faster, and so more hair is lost than is formed. This form of hair loss can not be cured, but there are a number of methods to stop evolution or even bring about new hair growth. Scientific research has shown that hair loss stops when the transition from testosterone to dihydrotestosterone is inhibited.
