Male Pattern Baldness

Male-pattern baldness is the most common type of hair loss, affecting over 6.5 million men in the UK. Male pattern baldness starts with thinning of the hair and then develops into hair loss on the temples and scalp. For the minority of men, male pattern baldness can start from as early as their late teens, but this form of hair loss most commonly occurs in men aged between 30-40. By the age of 45, most men have some degree of hair loss.

The majority of men who suffer from male pattern baldness tend to generate emotional problems even as serious as depression. It is common for young hair loss sufferers in particular to suffer from low self-esteem and bouts of depression during the hair fall process.

Male-pattern baldness is usually inherited and can also affect women. It's caused by over-sensitive hair follicles. Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) is produced by the male hormone testosterone, and it causes the follicles to shrink and eventually stop functioning.

The involvement of testosterone in balding has led to the myth that going bald is a sign of virility. But men with male-pattern baldness don’t have more male hormones than other men. Their hair follicles are simply more sensitive to the hormones.

Receding Hairline

Male-pattern baldness is so called because it tends to follow a set pattern. The first stage is usually a receding hairline, followed by thinning of the hair on the crown and temples. When these two areas meet in the middle, it leaves a horseshoe shape of hair around the back and sides of the head.

Eventually, some men go completely bald on top
If you have inherited the genes responsible for male-pattern or female-pattern baldness there's little you can do to prevent it from happening.

Treatments like HR23 can slow down the process and in some cases prevent further hair fall, but there’s no 100% guaranteed cure. If you suffer from early stages of hair loss (Norwood Scale 1-4) then natural treatments such as HR23 are excellent options you can take to hold onto your hair for longer.

Some patients have seen excellent results from using HR23 including thicker appearance in hair and less hair fall.
