Main Reasons For Male Pattern Baldness.
Male pattern baldness (MPB) or Androgenetic alopecia (AGA) is seen in males. Though a female variant is present as well.
Andro genetic essentially means it has two components. Andro or androgen owing to the Dihydrotestosterone naturally converting in your body from testosterone. And second being the genetic part ie. your genes which you can’t likely escape.
Why does it happen?
However, the cause of MPB cannot be singularly owed to Dihydrotestosterone . It is ultimately your very own genetic susceptibility.
There are several studies which claims it to be multifactorial, but substantial proof is still lacking.
Dihydrotestosterone is by far believed to be the main and the only( by many) causes in MPB
Explanation of male pattern baldness
Coming to the part, as to why only the native hair is affected by it and not the back donor the science behind it is still unclear, though we know that under unknown chemical signaling at the molecular level causes the roots of the hair follicle in the frontal, temporal, parietal, lateral, hump, midscalp, crown to be negatively impacted causing them to slowly thin out.
Whereas the hair follicle roots in the back donor are relatively insensitive to the presence of Dihydrotestosterone in the body, thus when these hair follicles when transplanted in the recipient stay and grow strong.
Dihydrotestosterone even after being considered as the main culprit of all, a good nutrition is the foundation to be ensured for a lustrous mane.
