The dreaded male bald-patch
The Dreaded bald patch or as my friends refer to it ‘the badger’s arse’ – the one thing every man does not want to see. This pattern of male balding is called androgenic alopecia or ‘male pattern baldness’ . As time goes on those of us who are unlucky enough to lose our hair eventually end up with a rim of hair that is left around the top of the head.
The hormone which is responsible for this is dihydrotesterone, which causes the hair follicles to shrink and the hair becomes thinner until the follicles become dormant. It is not fully understand why this happens in these specific areas although a staggering 95% of balding in men takes this form. I think its time to get rid of the hair completely when it gets to the stage of a comb-over.
