Androgenic Alopecia, also known as male pattern baldness, is the most common type of hair loss in men. The U.S National Library of Medicine (NLM) reports that more than 50% of all men over the age of 50 are affected by male pattern baldness to some extent.
The most common cause of male hair loss is due to the hair follicle’s sensitivity to the hormone Dihydrotestosterone, or DHT. DHT sensitive hair follicles are generally found on the top front section of the head. These hairs become weaker, finer, and eventually stop growing, which causes balding. DHT may never affect the hair around the sides of the head even though these hairs are exposed to DHT, because hair follicles on the side of the head may not be sensitive to the hormone.
We use the popular scale, called the Hamilton-Norwood Scale, to measure the 7 Stages of baldness in men.
Male pattern hair loss is diagnosed based on the appearance and pattern of the hair loss. The Norwood Scale (or Hamilton-Norwood scale) is the leading classification system used to measure the extent of male pattern baldness, which is why we use it.
