Hair loss in men is common. You see men every day that are balding, bald spots, receding hairlines, and thinning hair, and it’s not just old men. Many men actually experience hair loss as early as their 20s. When and if you will experience hair loss depends on three factors:
Most men experience at least some degree of hair loss in their lifetime, with the numbers increasing continuously with age. By their late 20’s, approximately 12% of men experience some hair loss. By the time a man is in his 50s, he has a greater than 50% chance of displaying some genetic baldness.
The most common type of baldness is called Male Pattern Baldness or more scientifically, Androgenetic Alopecia. This type of hair loss usually starts with a receding hairline with the hair at the temple. This hair gradually recedes to form an “M” pattern. Then, the hair on the crown of your head begins to thin and eventually this bald spot will meet with the top points of the “M” pattern of receding hair line. Over time, the only remaining hair is the horse-shoe pattern around the sides of the head.
This classification was developed to assist in the identification of where in the hair loss process a man is.In addition to the change in the hair pattern, there is also a change in the hair appearance – any remaining hair usually is thinner and grows at a below normal rate.
Male Pattern Baldness starts at puberty but can go unnoticed for many years late. This hair loss never stops but may slow down in later years. The hair loss tends to slowly, steadily progress through fairly typical patterns but there can be cycles of faster and slower hair loss. It is therefore impossible to know exactly how much hair will be lost and how quickly it will be lost, for any individual. Hair loss in men occurs on a case by case basis.
Regardless of your age, there are a number of signs and symptoms that you may start experiencing hair loss. The most common signs include:
