Androgenic alopecia is the most common type of male hair loss.
It is caused by a hereditary taint – the change of testosterone into dihydrotestosterone (DHT) which weakens hair follicles. DHT binds with receptors of hair follicles which gradually become smaller. This slows down the hair growth.
Male hair loss mostly appears on characterictic places – so called corners, because these places have most receptors.
