The cause of hair loss in 90% of men is male pattern baldness and occurs at the front, top and crown of the head
This is known as the Norwood Hamilton Scale and is the most advanced classification of hair loss. Our illustrations below will help you to categorise your male pattern baldness.
There is no way of predicting how a male will suffer hair loss but those who begin losing hair in their early twenties will tend to progress quicker. Other male pattern hair loss may be delayed until the late thirties.
Baldness is determined by inherited genetics from both or either parents and is caused by the hormone receptors in your hair roots.
The receptors attract the male hormone Dihhydroestosterone triggering the hair loss process.
Contrary to commonly heard myths male pattern baldness has nothing to do with a lack of blood supply.
A hair transplant can be a solution to male pattern baldness. To gauge your level of hair loss see our Norwood Hamilton Scale illustrations below.
