Hair loss can be caused by a number of things. However, the most common cause of hair loss tends to be hereditary in nature, and is known as male-pattern baldness.
Male-pattern baldness is a result of sensitivity to DHT, a by-product of the male sex hormone testosterone. As DHT travels to the scalp, it attaches to androgen receptors at the base of the hair follicle.
These receptors are located throughout the scalp, but they are most prevalent by the forehead and temples. Once the DHT has attached, the hair follicles soon become unable to perform their job. This results in shortening of the hair and, eventually, complete loss. This is why natural DHT blockers have become increasingly popular for men with hair loss.
Of course, there are more temporary causes of hair loss. These include stress, illness, and medications, but they can be just as devastating to the sufferer as the more chronic form mentioned above.
