Hair Loss, Particularly in Men and possible Treatments
Approximately 75% of men are capable of going bald in the near future. The age at which they go bald is what sets a difference due to lifestyle habits and the genetics. Hair loss is a process that develops into baldness with time and many men are caught unaware because of their busy schedules and priorities.

Just as women lose hair, so do the men, though hair loss in men is quite high. Hair loss in men is gradual and mostly leaves a visible bald starting at the front hairline and spreads to the surrounding regions.
