Androgenic alopecia refers to a hair loss condition which affects almost half of the older male population. It usually follows a pattern of receding hairline and gradual thinning on the crown. In short, this can also be explained as male pattern hair loss. It is impossible to pinpoint the direct cause of androgenic alopecia without consulting a health professional.
