Male pattern baldness

Male-pattern baldness (MPB) or its medical reference – Androgenetic Alopecia, is the most common type of hair loss, affecting around half of all men by fifty years of age. It usually starts around the late twenties or early thirties. Most men have some degree of hair loss by their late thirties.

It generally follows a pattern of a receding hairline, followed by thinning of the hair on the crown and temples, leaving a horseshoe shape around the back and sides of the head. There are various degrees of MPB that are measured using the Norwood Hamilton Scale. These range from a Norwood 1 (NW1) where no hair loss is experienced, through to Norwood 7 (NW7) which means total loss of all hair on top of the head, with or without the ‘horseshoe’ ring of hair at the back and sides.
