Although most men rarely discuss the topic, those who suffer from male pattern baldness are in general very unhappy with their situation. Hair loss can affect every aspect of their life. Some men suffering from male pattern baldness began to experience the demoralizing telltale signs before the age of 21. By the age of 35, 30-40% of men will experience thinning and notice a receding hairline. By age 50 nearly 85% of men experience some thinning or recessions, some to complete baldness.
