What is meant by pattern baldness?

Male pattern baldness, also called androgenic alopecia in men, is a common type of hair loss that affects up to 50% of men by age 50;[1] however, the extent differs from person to person. 

If you notice that your hair starts to lose its volume and thickness at the temples or crown of the head, you may have male pattern baldness. Again, it differs from person to person – for instance, some people just have a single bald spot, while others have the receding hairline that forms an ‘M’ shape, and for others, their hairline continues to recede until most of their hair is gone. 

Your hair on your head follows a growth cycle. But with male pattern baldness, this cycle is disrupted, causing the hair follicles to shrink, producing finer and shorter strands of hair until the growth cycle for hair stops and no new hair strands grow as a replacement for the hair that is shed. 

Male pattern baldness, according to research, is often associated with male sex hormones called androgens, which have several functions, including regulating hair growth.

What are the causes of pattern baldness?

Male pattern baldness is mostly caused by genetics.[2] Thus, this is an inherited condition you may not be able to avoid, but you can treat it. Sometimes, however, baldness is caused by certain medications like anabolic steroids[3] and medical conditions such as cancer and thyroid-related diseases.[4]

In most cases, male pattern baldness runs in the family. So if you have family members with this condition, you are more likely to experience a receding hairline or thinning hair than someone who doesn’t have a family history of baldness. 

How to treat pattern baldness?

At Mosh, we offer a wide range of male pattern baldness treatments, both prescription treatments that require an online consultation with a doctor and non-prescription methods like hair growth vitamins, shampoos, and conditioners that contain an array of nutrients that nourish the hair follicles and energise the scalp. To achieve the best results possible from your hair loss treatment, our doctors may recommend combining prescription and non-prescription methods. 

Depending on the extent of your hair loss, you may need two or more male pattern baldness treatments. For instance, some men are advised to use minoxidil, which commonly comes in the form of topical foam, spray, and men’s hair growth shampoo. This ingredient works by widening the blood vessels, allowing more oxygen and nutrients to reach the hair follicles. At the same time, you may also use shampoos and conditioners packed with vitamins and minerals that nourish the hair and energise the scalp. 

At Mosh, we believe that male pattern baldness treatments are the most effective when they come in a personalised plan. For this reason, we offer free consultations in which you can talk or video chat with one of our doctors. Plus, we have prescription-based plans in which you get a new set of hair products and/or medications delivered as you need them. By subscribing to our service, you’ll never run out of treatments to keep your hair healthier and thicker. 

Aside from automatic refills, another benefit of subscribing to our service is you get access to ongoing support, meaning you can chat with our doctors and/or registered nurses over text or video call. Our subscription plan does not come with lock-in periods or contracts, which means you can cancel anytime without penalty. 

With regular use, our personalised hair growth treatment can take three to six months to deliver visible changes. However, it may take up to a year to achieve maximum results. Like all topical products and prescription medications, results may vary from person to person.
