Androgenetic alopecia (male pattern balding, female pattern hair loss) is mainly caused by a combination of genetic and hormonal factors, such as:
Negative effect of androgens and their high level, especially dihydrotestosterone (DHT)
Slow, gradual reduction of hair follicles and hair thinning
Shortening of the hair growth cycle and prolongation of the resting (telogen) phase (more than 20% of hair)
Occupational factors such as: stress
Drop in oestrogen during menopause (responsible for female hair loss only)
Androgenetic alopecia affects the following areas:
Above the forehead
In both sexes
In men usually between their 20s and 30s
In women usually after their 30s
In men, pattern baldness starts with receding hairline on the forehead and then hair thinning on the crown of the head. The pattern of male pattern baldness can also occur in women.
In female pattern hair loss hair thins predominantly at the top and crown of the scalp, while the front hairline (2-3 cm) remains unaffected. The first sign of androgenic alopecia in women is often the widening of the part. Androgenic alopecia in women hardly ever leads to complete baldness, as it may in men.
First signs of androgenic alopecia may not be typical – in the form of scalp disorders such as seborrhoea or dandruff. Androgenetic alopecia treatment is most effective when started as soon as the first symptoms occur.
The process where hair follicles that are producing healthy hair start to produce finer, thinner and weaker hair is called miniaturization of hair and hair follicles. Weaker hair usually start to appear on the crown of the head and after each subsequent hair cycle is becoming finer, thinner and shorter. In consequence it leads to baldness on the top of the head. It is believed that dihydrotestosterone hormone (DHT) is associated with the miniaturization of hair follicles. Negative effect of high level of DHT on hair can be reversed with Kapyderm male pattern baldness / female pattern hair loss treatment.
