One common form of hair decline in both men and women is known as alopecia androgenetica (also known as androgenetic alopecia or androgenic alopecia). In men in particular this condition is also commonly known as male pattern baldness. Well defined patterns of hair loss start to occur above both temples. Thinning of hair also occurs at the wreath of the head. Most of the time a rim of hair around the sides and rear of the head is left but the condition can lead to complete baldness. Male pattern baldness is most often seen in men above the ages of 20 but can be seen as early as late teens as well. Male pattern baldness is caused by DHT a powerful sexual urge hormone body and facial hair growth promoter that can adversely affect the prostate as well as the hair located on the head. The genetic predisposition of hair follicles to DHT causes them to shrink when exposed to it. This shortens the lifespan of hair follicles and prevents males from producing hair normally which is characterized by hair receding from the lateral sides of the forehead known as a receding hairline. An additional bald patch may develop on the top of the head as well. Find out more about Provillus Men's Formula to regrow hair.
