Androgenetic Alopecia - A Visual Guide To The 7 Stages Of Male Pattern Baldness And Hair Loss



Androgenetic Alopecia A Visual Guide To Male Pattern Baldness And Hair Loss

Androgenetic Alopecia is a fancy way to say male-pattern hair loss a.k.a. male-pattern baldness. We gave a brief overview on the term in this article if you'd like to read more about it. For those off us in the follicly challenged club the journey always starts somewhere on your scalp and below we have created a visual guide that covers all of the common balding patterns on hair loss for men. With that being said, your hair loss may not exactly match one of these options and perhaps it's a combination of 2 or more of them.

Stage 1
This is a very mild form of hair loss where the frontal hairline slightly recedes on both sides.
