While the symptoms of male pattern baldness may seem obvious,
there are a few important distinctions to make before recognizing and
dealing with hair loss.
What exactly is male pattern baldness? There are several visible
signs of hair loss:
is generally not as thick as it may have been months or years
prior to its current state.
- a receding hairline - an area of balding over the frontal
part of the head that gradually increases over time.
- a bald spot - a circular area of baldness covering the crown,
or top-rear, of the head.
- a complete loss of hair except for an area around the back and sides
of the head indicating male pattern baldness which is often a result
of the combination of a receding hairline and a bald spot, over time.
Baldness becomes noticeable when hair density begins to decrease
i.e. there simply is not as much hair in a particular area as there used
to be. This may become noticeable at any given age, though generally becomes
more prominent with age.
Different men suffer different amounts of hair loss, and at different
times in their lives. Some men may not begin to show signs of hair loss
until later in life. Others may begin to notice a receding hairline in
their college years or earlier. Nevertheless, two-thirds of men will be
confronted with any or all of these symptoms at some point in their lives.
