Hair Loss In Men

There are several reasons that account for hair loss and surprisingly they vary in men and women. Various studies have revealed that at an average a man loses 100-150 hairs per day, which is quite normal as they tend to grow back following three phases: anagen, catagen and telogen. However, any lapse in regrowth pattern could result in what we term as hair loss. It has been observed that every man experiences some degree of hair loss in his lifetime, which may tend to increase with age. The hair loss reaches up to 12% in late 20’s and tends to increase up to 50% in late 50’s.

What exaggerates the condition is the psychological effect of hair loss. While some people face the fact that they are balding sportingly, others restrict themselves socially. Gratefully, one could escape the dilemma by seeking help from excellent treatments that act pro actively in preventing any further male hair loss. Hair transplant procedures like FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation) and FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) have managed to adhere by the transplant standards and predict results that are meant forever.

Why does this occur?
This is because of the effect of the male hormone derivative Dihydortestosterone on the hair roots located on the front and top of the scalp. However, the hair on the sides and the back are usually spared of this effect. This is because, the male hormone does not act on the receptors of the hair roots located on the back side as they have arisen from different embryonic layer as that of the front and the top of the scalp.
Over the period of years, the male hormone keeps on acting on the hair, they keep on thinning with every cycle and eventually they fall off. Depending on the degree of hair loss, they can be categorized in to different grades, namely Norwood Hamilton, II-VII.

Type 2: Minimal temporal recession with thinning along anterior margin of forelock.
Type 3: Deep frontal recession with few or no remaining hairs.
Type 3 vertex: Vertex affected with deep frontal recession.
Type 4: Significant frontal and temporal recession and frontal thinning with sparse or absent hair in the vertex.
Type 5: Large areas of front temporal and vertex alopecia and only a narrow and sparse bridge separating both areas.
Type 6: Loss of bridge that separates the frontal and vertex areas with lateral and posterior progression of alopecia.
Type 7: Most severe form of balding. Only hair – shoe shaped band of hair in the occipital region remains on the scalp.
