hair loss in men
The main reason for your hair loss might be Androgenetic Alopecia, commonly known as ‘male pattern baldness.’
Imac

It refers to shrinking of the hair follicle which is the part of hair beneath the skin surface.

As this disorder increases, follicles produce thinner hair and eventually stop producing hair shafts, the portion of hair that is visible to us.

Hair Growth Cycle

In men, the hairline starts receding to form an ‘M-shape’. As the condition progresses, the hair becomes shorter and thinner and forms ‘U-shape’ with very less hair on sides.
