Male pattern hair loss is one of the most common causes of male hair loss. Though the condition usually affects middle aged men, these days, younger men, even those who are still in their 20s are reporting male pattern baldness, also called, androgenic alopecia.
This condition involves losing hair in a well-defined pattern, around the top of the head and sometimes on the sides and back of the head as well. Male pattern hair loss may progress to partial or complete baldness.
Importance of hair
Society places great emphasis on the appearance of your hair. Functionally, hair on your head helps to keep you warm and protects your scalp, as well as makes you look attractive, and defines your personality. Traditionally, hair is associated with masculinity, virility, youthfulness and health. Though some men accept hair loss and come to terms with it, most men feel frustrated due to their hair loss. They can lose their self-esteem, start feeling older than their age and are not so confident when meeting new people. In order to restore a head full of hair, men try all sorts of treatments that claim to stop hair loss. From herbs, to chanting mantras, to using animal waste, men have tried anything they believed could stop hair loss. The launch of Propecia, has significantly eased the predicament of men and given them a treatment option that is effective, convenient and safe.
