The hair follicles in men who suffer from male pattern baldness seem to be genetically predisposed to be more susceptible to the harmful effects of testosterone and DHT later in life. This hereditary weakness makes it possible for the DHT to cause restricted hair growth more easily and fully on the scalp. It is thought that this weakness of the hair follicle is passed down through DNA from generation to generation.
The genetic side of male pattern baldness can also help men better understand their chances of developing androgenetic alopecia and better understand how the condition will affect them personally. By studying the tendency for baldness on both the mother’s side and father’s side of the family a man can usually pinpoint his predisposition for hair loss. By determining if the men in the family tend to be bald, how severe their baldness is, what pattern the hair loss follows, and the age of initial hair thinning men will be able to predict their own baldness course and take steps to prepare for the eventual hair loss.
If male pattern baldness runs in your family you may want to schedule an appointment with your trichologist to discuss treatment plans that can slow down the hair loss and in some cases recover lost hair.
