What Causes Male Pattern Baldness?

Male Pattern Baldness or Androgenic Alopecia is caused due to genetic predisposition among men, and primarily natural dihydrotestosterone (HT) is associated with baldness. It is believed that the increased DHT in the root of the hair reduces its growth cycle and delays or delays the release of new hair.

The main reason for hair fall in men is male genetics, which is also known as male sex hormone androgens. Along with basic functions androgen also helps to hair growth. Skin contains many types of hair on the overall body.

In the process of men’s baldness hair follicles become smaller, which is why the newly grown hair is thin and weak, and eventually, the growth of the hair stops.
