Understanding the reason behind your hair loss is important to choosing the right hair loss solution. There are many causes of male baldness from lifestyle and medications to genetics and nutrition. Knowing why you are experiencing hair loss is the first step to achieving the hair of your dreams. Let’s take a look at the most common causes of hair loss men face.

Male-Pattern Baldness (Androgenetic Alopecia)

Male-pattern baldness, also known as androgenetic alopecia, is the number one cause of male hair loss. In fact, according to the American Hair Loss Association, male-pattern baldness is responsible for approximately 95% of hair loss in men. This is a genetic form of hair loss. So, if the men in your family have experienced hair loss, chances are you will, too.

Male-pattern baldness is caused by a sensitivity to dihydrotestosterone (DHT). DHT is a byproduct of testosterone that plays an important role in beard growth, mood, and sexual function. However, it can have a negative effect on hair follicles. Some hair follicles are sensitive to DHT. The sensitive follicles shrink over time, and the hair produced has shorter lifespans. The hair becomes finer, less healthy, and stops producing hair altogether over time. Although hereditary male-pattern baldness is unpreventable, there are steps you can take to slow the progression and keep your natural hair for as long as possible.

Additional Causes of Hair Loss

Even though male-pattern baldness is the leading cause of hair loss in men, other causes can contribute to hair loss. These include:

  • Medical conditions
  • Illness
  • Hormone imbalances
  • Stress
  • Trauma
  • Thyroid condition
  • Nutritional deficiency
  • Autoimmune disease
