Why do men go bald?

Men go bald due to a genetic condition called androgenic alopecia which causes sensitivity to a male sex hormone called dihydrotestosterone (DHT).

DHT can shrink your hair follicles as well as shorten this cycle, causing hair to grow out looking thinner and more brittle, as well as fall out faster. DHT can also make it take longer for your follicles to grow new hairs once old hairs fall out.
