Male pattern baldness is the cause behind a vast majority of cases of hair loss. In fact, when baldness starts showing, a person has already lost about 50% of the original hair volume.

The normal hair density depends on the ethnic group of the patient. For some ethnic groups it can be 150-200 hairs per square centimeter, and for some other ethnic groups, like Dominican men, the normal hair density is at 80-100 hairs per square centimeter.

Baldness is largely the result of a hormone DHT (di-hydro-testosterone) interacting over time with those hair follicles that are vulnerable to its effects. This hormone binds with the receptor sites of these vulnerable follicles and causes a thinning of the hair shaft and follicle over time.

Therefore, hair transplant surgery is becoming very popular and effective for the people who are becoming bald.
