What Is Male Pattern Hair Loss?
Androgenetic Alopecia (AGA) also known as Male Pattern Hair loss (MPHL).
With most forms of hair loss, the exact cause is still misunderstood although AGA is one of the most researched and understood forms. One of medical sciences most confident explanations for AGA is that this is a hormone driven loss of density and can be hereditary from either side of the family.
This can be either by your genetic disposition of hormone balance or by hormone imbalance/deficiencies. Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) can play a strong role in the effects of Male Pattern Hair Loss with the effect of a process known as miniaturisation.
