Male Pattern Baldness?
Blame Genetics

Male pattern baldness, known as androgenetic alopecia, is by far the most common cause of men’s hair loss. Those experiencing this progressive, hereditary condition have inherited hair follicles that are sensitive to the hormone DHT, which causes the follicles to miniaturize and produce thinner hair over time.

Thankfully, HairClub has solutions that work for those whose hair is just starting to thin and for those with more advanced hair loss.

Come see a Hair Loss Specialist to find out which of our cutting-edge solutions is right for you.

What Else Causes Hair Loss in Men?

Aging can cause hair to thin. Over time, more hairs transition into the resting phase of hair growth while the remaining hairs become shorter and thinner. This process is called involutional alopecia.

Certain medications can lead to hair loss, including blood thinners and medicines for heart problems, blood pressure, and depression.

Scars left from accidents, burns, and surgery can prevent hair from growing.

Numerous medical conditions can cause hair loss, including thyroid disease and autoimmune diseases like lupus.

The trauma surrounding life events, such as losing a loved one, can cause hair to fall out.

Some chemotherapies and radiation therapies can cause your hair to fall out.

A lack of protein and iron in your diet can contribute to hair loss, as can eating disorders like bulimia and anorexia.

Where Do You Fit on the Norwood Scale?

The Norwood (or Hamilton-Norwood) Scale is one of the leading ways to classify male pattern baldness. It’s an easy-to-reference guide to help men understand the progression of their hair loss. This scale groups men’s hair loss into seven classes, from no or minimal loss to 
advanced balding.
