Hair loss is known medically as alopecia. People suffer hair loss for many different reasons. Hair loss can be caused by; a hormone imbalance, stress, cancer treatment, skin conditions and natural aging. In some cases hair will eventually grow back, while in others it will remain thinner or never grow back at all.
Male-pattern baldness is the most common type of hair loss, affecting around half of all men by 50 years of age. It generally follows a pattern of a receding hairline, followed by thinning of the hair on the crown and temples, leaving a horseshoe shape around the back and sides of the head. It is hereditary and thought to be caused by oversensitive hair follicles, linked to having too much of a certain male hormone (testosterone).
