I have noticed many 60 years old men’s hair start getting thin and become sparse, revealing some of their scalp skin underneath, but is this the same thing as male pattern baldness that a lot of guys having during their 30s to 50s? Those old men have a more sparse hair compared to their younger self but is still not balding like those 40 year old men with male pattern baldness, are these two situations related? If an old man’s body produces less male hormone than young men, then is that mean the elderly thinning/balding are usually not caused by hair follicles’ DHT sensitivity? Could this also be inherited?
Thinning in men over 60 may have nothing to do with balding. Hair in men or women that get older may see their entire hair become finer. That would be genetically induced. Balding is unlikely to appear in a 60 year old man
