Male pattern baldness is a genetic condition that causes the hair follicles to shrink, which slows down the growth of new hair, and leads to baldness. Male pattern baldness begins as a receding hairline creating an M shape. The hair on the scalp starts to become thinner, eventually leaving only the hair around the sides of the head.
Our tablets for hair loss prevent the hormone DHT being created, allowing hair follicles to grow to their normal size. Hair has been shown to regrow or prevent further hair loss. See our hair growth tablets below.
The most common cause of hair loss in men is the genetic condition known as male pattern baldness. Other possible causes include:
Certain blood thinners and high blood pressure medications
Hair loss in males can be reduced by using a drug type known as alpha-reductase inhibitors. These work by reducing testosterone production, which can be the cause of hair loss, as it encourages the shrinking of hair follicles.
