Reasons of Hair Loss
As we age, our hair follicles ages too. They shrink due to hormonal imbalances which in turn interfere with hair growth cycle. As a result, Male pattern baldness occurs where hair follicles shrinks due to imbalances in the ratio of Testosterone, the male hormone, Androgen, women hormone and Dihydrotestosterone (DHT).
Other Reasons of Hair Loss
When your hair starts to fall out suddenly, instead of gradual hair thinning over time, it’s usually from other factors other than male pattern baldness. The other causes may include:
- Chemotherapy or radiation treatments
- Diseases like thyroid or anemia problem
- Diet imbalances in your diet, like getting too much of Vitamin A or little iron quantity
- Medications such as high intake of steroids, vitamin A, blood thinners especially taken by body builders to build muscle
- Keeping hairstyles like cornrows, ponytails or braids for many years.
Stages of Hair Loss in Men
The Norwood Scale is set of images which depicts different stages of male pattern baldness. The Norwood Scale or also known as Hamilton-Norwood Scale is one leading hair loss classification measuring system that is used to determine how far male pattern baldness has progressed.
Stage 1: The scale baseline indicates no hair loss.
Stage 2: This stage indicates minor loss of hair in front of hairline and some near the temples. Individuals may not experience considerable hair loss. Stage 2A is reached when there is progression of recession across the entire frontal hairline.
Stage 3: At Stage 3, hair recession at temples begins to deepen. During stage 3A, deepening of frontal recession with hairline moving backwards continually is experienced. Stage 3V occurs when evident hair loss is seen on the crown.
Stage 4: During Stage 4, temporal and frontal hair loss advances, and the bald path at crown broadens. At Stage 4A, hair loss advances past the mid-crown.
Stage 5: At stage 5, the bald path in front broadens and starts to join the bald area at crown.
Stage 6: During this stage, bald area in crown and front fuses and continues to enlarge. The back part of the bald area is much wider than it was in stage 5.
Stage 7: The final stage is characterized by extensive baldness with only a hair strip remaining at side and back of the scalp.
