Why do men become bald?
This disease is called "Androgenetic Alopecia." Hair follicles, which are the part of the skin where they are concentrated stem cells that give hair growth, fail to receive the necessary proteins that serve to grow our hair. This condition can be caused by different genetic factors or depending on the person.
Due to this problem the hair follicle shrinks. As becomes smaller vital structure, the hair growth cycle is reduced more and enters a period of rest, producing a rapid hair loss.
Alopecia can be detected before age 20 or beginning of the third age. There are several treatments to prevent baldness and hair implants or receive hormones among others, that have worked successfully.
