Types of male hair loss

Types of male hair loss


The most common type of hair loss starts in males from about the age of 30, but could occur at any age past puberty.

It is known as male pattern baldness.

  • It is thought to be hereditary and is also dependent on the extent to which the male hormone testosterone is converted in the scalp to another hormone, dihydroxytestosterone (DHT)
  • Hereditary hair loss accounts for 99% of hair loss in men.



If the entire head is affected by hair loss and the number of hairs lost exceeds the normal amount of 100 hairs per day, this is diffuse hair loss. Although the hair bulb is intact, it is not sufficiently supplied with nutrients like amino acids (e.g. cystine) and B-group vitamins through the bloodstream.

The reasons for diffuse hair loss in men are many and varied and can be related to certain life circumstances:

  • Stress
  • Nutritional deficits/diet
  • Severe infections, e.g. flu
  • Certain metabolic disorders
  • Special form of seasonal hair loss (hair loss in spring or autumn)


The cause of diffuse hair loss

should be identified and, if possible, eliminated during a visit to the doctor. Diffuse hair loss can also be successfully treated by supplying suitable nutrients with Pantogar® capsules. Because of the life cycle of a hair, the treatment should be carried out for at least 3 to 6 months.

Recommendation: 3 x 1 capsule per day


This form of hair loss is also called circular hair loss, or spot baldness. It is characterized by distinct, sharply defined bald patches of different sizes.

Alopecia areata is an inflammatory, usually reversible form of hair loss. The cause is unknown. Most likely, immunological (concerning the body’s defense mechanism) processes play a role in the development of the disease. Hereditary factors also seem to be of relevance, as in about 25% of cases the disease occurs in families.

Alopecia areata should be treated by a doctor.

Patient experiences

Pantogar Hair loss is a very personal issue that many women and men do not like to talk about. But why not? There is no reason to be ashamed of hair loss. The more openly people affected talk about it, the easier it is for other women and men to get their hair loss treated and to put it behind them.
