Male pattern baldness also called androgenenic alopecia because it is to do with the male sex hormones called androgens. It is a common type of hair loss among men and affects half of them over the age of 50 and most men at some stage in their lives. It is diagnosed on the appearance and pattern of hair loss. The hair loss beginning at the hairline overtime recede and forms an M shape eventually assuming a U shape around the sides of the head.
Treatments include hair weaving, wigs, change of hairstyle, topical or oral medications and hair transplants. Homeopathy has great remedies such as Thuja, and Sabal which are natural DHT (Dihydrotestosterone) inhibitors. DHT which is the derivative of male hormone testosterone is the enemy of hair follicles. So, homeopathy treats the cause and delivers long standing results without any harmful side effects.
If left untreated, male pattern baldness (androgenetic alopecia) will tend to get worse with time. This will happen at different rates for different people.
Frequently Asked Qustions
Why do hair loss occurs?
Telogen effluvium, which is temporary, diffuse hair loss, commonly occurs due to stress or physical trauma, and it is often associated with hormonal imbalances. It can happen after having a baby or as a result of an illness, surgery, or emotional turmoil.
Is hair loss genetic?
While the primary baldness gene is on the X chromosome, which men get only from their mothers, other factors are also in play. The hereditary factor is slightly more dominant on the woman's side, but research suggests that men who have a bald father are more likely to develop male pattern baldness than those who don't.
