The Hamilton-Norwood Scale measures the progression of androgenic alopecia or male pattern baldness. A few identifiable stages characterize this type of hair loss, which varies among individuals.
Barely noticeable hair loss. You may find a few more hairs in the shower or slightly less hair covering your forehead.
At first, your hair is still thick, even though you’ll start to notice a receding hairline. Over time, your hair may get patchy, losing in specific areas rather than all over.
At this stage, you’ll start noticing baldness. Your scalp will recede more, and less hair will grow on your head. Bald spots commonly mark this stage.
Your scalp’s front center has more thinning hair. A hair band will connect both sides, while the center will go bald.
Bald sections will look as big as a large orange. Your already patchy hair in the center will thin more. A widow’s peak-like triangular area of hair is all that remains at the front.
Hair concentrates at the back of the head, with few at the top.
Only a horseshoe-shaped band remains at the back; the rest is bald.
