Male pattern hair loss is the most common type of thinning of the hair and balding that occurs in adult males. It is due to a combination of hormones(androgens) and a genetic predisposition.
More than 95% of all cases of male pattern hair loss is also called androgenetic alopecia. This is where recession of the hair occurs at the temples and/or thinning of hair occurs in front/crown areas of the scalp. The final stage of such a loss leaves a band of hair around the back and sides of the scalp and baldness over the rest of the scalp.
The thinning usually begins during the late teens and early 20s and sufferers are well on the way to baldness by the age of 30. About 50% of men suffer genetic hair loss to varying degrees by the age of 50.
Genetic hair loss is easily
The development of genetic hair loss depends on the three main factors, - Genetic predisposition (it can be inherited from either parent), the presence of a normal level of post-puberty male sex hormone(androgens) and an immune reaction at the bulge on hair follicles. This immune reaction is
Oily scalp is caused by overactive sebaceous glands. And hereditary due to the testosterone hormone causing the active oil gland as well. An excessive of the oiliness of the skin attracts bacterial and it leads to itching scalp.
Seborrheic dermatitis consists of area erythema covered by yellow oily scales. The hairline and forehead are the most common area affected but it can affect any part of the scalp as well as the face, neck, chest, back and other areas of the body, normally associated with itching.
The cause of Seborrheic dermatitis is not known but genetics play a part. The accumulation of Sebum on the skin's surface is a factor that contributes to the problem. As the yeast, "Malassezia globose" is found in abundance on the skin, and possibly plays a causative role by acting on the sebum to produce free fatty acids to irritate the skin which, in turn, lead to the inflammatory and scaling.
Due to free radical and environmental pollution, as well as the chemical treatment, it speeds up the aging process of our scalp and hair. The scalp is the fastest aging skin. It is 12 times faster than the body skin and 6 times faster than the facial skin. A lack of care of our scalp leads to loss of elasticity and showing of wrinkles on the scalp, sometimes even cause the wrinkle on the forehead and corner of the eyes.
Fine shedding or scaling of the skin. Normal skin (stratum corneum)
Other considerations include the cosmetics used on the scalp and diet. Cosmetics such as shampoos that slightly irritate the scalp are lightly triggering scaling as a means of ridding the scalp of irritation. Regarding diet, deficiencies of essential nutrients are certainly reflected in our skin and hair.
