Male pattern baldness (androgenetic alopecia) is the most common cause of hair loss in men and is influenced by genetic factors.
Fluctuations in hormones, specifically an excess of dihydrotestosterone (DHT), can lead to hair follicle shrinkage and eventual hair loss.
A diet lacking essential nutrients like vitamins (especially biotin), minerals, and protein can contribute to weakened hair follicles and hair loss.
Chronic stress can lead to hormonal imbalances, disrupting the hair growth cycle and resulting in increased shedding.
Excessive use of heat styling tools, harsh chemicals, and tight hairstyles can damage hair shafts and contribute to hair thinning.
Certain medical conditions, like thyroid disorders, autoimmune diseases, and scalp infections, can lead to hair loss if not properly managed.
Some medications, such as certain antidepressants, blood thinners, and chemotherapy drugs, may have hair loss as a side effect.
