Hair Loss in Men

By far the most common cause of hair loss in men is androgenetic alopecia, also referred to as "male pattern" or "common" baldness. It is caused by the effects of the male hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT) on genetically susceptible scalp hair follicles. This sensitivity to DHT is present mainly in hair follicles that reside in the front, top, and crown of the scalp (rather than the back and sides) producing a characteristic and easily identifiable pattern described by Norwood  It is frequently stated that "hair loss comes from the mother's side of the family." The truth is that the condition can be inherited from either parent. However, recent research suggests that the situation may be a bit more complex than was originally thought. Factors on the x-chromosome have been shown to influence hair loss, making the inheritance from the maternal side of the family slightly more important than the paternal one.
