I have a question regarding to human hair whorl, if we talk about the hair loss on the top for men, does it normally begin to thin from the whorl area? Cheers
Genetic hair loss in men have a certain “pattern” as described by Dr. Norwood. That is why it is often called Male “Pattern” Balding. For those patterns that start on the top crown area, it starts around the whorl, but I do not think you can say it starts exactly at the whorl as it often appears as general thinning of the entire area around and including the whorl. It certainly looks like it may start at the whorl because that is where the hair changes direction and looses its ability to overlap hair on hair, so it looks the thinnest and it is a focal point that draws the eye to the center of the whorl (even for non-balding men).
