Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) is a hormone that’s been associated with the progression of androgenic alopecia. When DHT binds to hair follicles, the hairs produced get thinner and smaller. Eventually, they stop being produced completely. Blocking DHT can help prevent future hair loss and stop the progression of androgenic alopecia.
Many hair loss disorders have the potential to cause balding. The most common cause, androgenic alopecia, is a condition that causes permanent hair loss over time. If you know this condition runs in your family and you don’t want to lose your hair, you’ll need to start a treatment as soon as you see the first signs of hair loss.
All adults develop a mature hairline. It’s a perfectly normal part of aging that tends to happen during your 20s. A receding hairline, on the other hand, is one of the first signs of androgenic alopecia, a progressive type of hair loss.
Men can go bald for many reasons. The most common cause is androgenic alopecia, commonly known as male pattern hair loss. However, various autoimmune conditions, including alopecia areata and scarring alopecias, can also lead to hair loss and baldness.

If you’ve been feeling an unnatural desire to scratch your head, there’s a good chance that you’re experiencing a symptom of a scalp problem. Quite often, an itchy scalp is a sign of an infection or a skin condition like dermatitis. In other cases, scalp itchiness is actually a symptom of alopecia that occurs before hair fall.
Male pattern baldness (formally known as androgenic alopecia) is the most common cause of hair loss. People with this condition tend to experience hair loss at the hairline, temples, and crown. Fortunately, androgenic alopecia has multiple treatment options that can prevent hair loss from progressing.
Age-related hairline changes are normal. As we age, our juvenile, concave hairlines recede into mature, convex hairlines. However, some people see further changes to their hairlines, as well. This type of receding hairline is typically a sign of androgenic alopecia.
