Most Common Reason for Male Pattern Baldness: Male pattern baldness, also known as male-pattern baldness, is caused by hormones. It’s caused by faulty genes you receive from your mother. Scientists believe the faulty gene might be related to how sensitive your scalp is to a certain hormone called DHT, makes them shrink. This can lead to male baldness or alopecia because the hair follicle has been weakened over time. One way of assessing your likelihood of premature balding is to look at your father and grandfather and see what happened to the quality, thickness and strength of their hair as they aged.
