If you look at people who have hair loss around you, you’ll notice that most of them only have balding on the top of their head but not on the sides and back. Even older people have healthy hair above their ears and neck. This is very common and it is called male pattern baldness.

Why is that?

Studies show that there are three main factors that affect hair health, and these include:

1)    A decrease of the micro blood circulation in the hair roots

2)    High levels of DHT

3)    Scalp conditions like dermatitis or skin irritations

However, hair on the side and back areas are not at risk from these factors.

Researchers compared the structures of hair taken from different areas of the scalp and found that the structures are the same.

Then what on earth causes this hair loss pattern?


Stand in front of a mirror while you’re chewing gum or eating. You will see that the area over your neck and ears moves in perfect synchrony with the movements of your mouth muscles.

Continuous use of these muscles provides these areas of the scalp with a constant flow of oxygenated blood. Constant blood flow brings cells all the nutritive elements like vitamins, minerals, proteins and amino acids that the hair roots need to be healthy and grow new hair. These capillaries carry blood to the hair follicles, which keeps them strong.

We all know that excessive DHT can attack the hair follicles and stop them from growing. Although good blood circulation can prevent formation of excessive amounts of DHT.

This is why even older people who’ve experienced hair loss for years still have healthy and strong hair above their ears and neck.
