29 Aug Hair Loss in Men
Hereditary hair loss in men is due to the influence of dihydrotestosterone (DHT) on genetically susceptible scalp hair follicles. Hair follicles cycle repeatedly through the anagen stage that usually lasts 2-6 years and a resting telogen phase that last 1–4 months.
Influence of hormone DHT causes hair follicles of the scalp to gradually spend more time in the resting phase and less time growing phase. As result miniaturization of the hair follicle occurs which leads to stops producing hair completely.
