Three reasons why men go bald

1. Hair loss in the temple starts at the anterior hairline and moves backwards. It occurs to some degree in all boys as they transition from adolescence to manhood. Fewer than 5% of adult males retain the straight anterior hairline seen in young boys.

 

Generally the loss in this area is mild. Some men develop noticeable bi-temporal recession and this may precede hair loss elsewhere on the scalp by many years.

2. Hair loss on the crown starts around the whorl (at the back of the head), and spreads outwards in all directions to produce a circular baldness. A second, smaller focus of balding occurs at the 6 o’clock border in some men.
