Male pattern hair loss is genetic. It is due to a hormone called DHT (dihydrotestosterone). Despite media hype and mass marketing promoting “DHT blockers”, there is no cure for balding. Even drugs such as Propecia and Rogaine have limitations, yet they are the most effective and proven medical regimen for androgenic alopecia (AGA), also known as male pattern balding (MPB). Another option is hair transplantation.
If you lived near the ocean and your car was rusting, you could say that you don’t want to do anything, because you want to keep your car ‘natural’ and you can watch it rust away. Get the message?
