What Causes Male Pattern Hair Loss?
By and large, male pattern hair loss is caused by 3 major factors: age, genes, and hormones. By the age of 45, around a third of the male population starts losing their hair. By the time they retire, nearly all of them have experienced hair loss.
Genetically speaking, males who are prone to developing baldness have hair follicles which are very sensitive to the male hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT). By the time testosterone is converted into DHT, the hair follicles shrink resulting to finer hair until the hair stops growing.
Apart from the three factors previously mentioned, premature hair loss is also influenced by nutrition. The poorer the nutritional intake, the greater the chances of thinning hair.
