When you are planning a hair restoration/transplant treatment abroad for your thinning or balding hair, it is important to find out how has your hairloss gone so far. The Norwood Scale is a guide that comprises of images (that you can see below) which shows the stages of male hairloss.

Measure Hairloss with Norwood Scale

Norwood Scale is the most common and well known way to measure the baldness level (symbolized by numbers from 1 to 7 above). Mainly, this scale helps to understand how much the hairloss advanced and the higher number reflects the more advanced hairloss.

The main reasons of male hairloss are the hormones (DHT) and genetic heritage. Right after the adolescence period, testosterone hormone level will increase and that generates dihydrotestosterone (DHT) which plays a key part of hair losing process. In a period of time, hair follicles will be weaken and get smaller so they will not be able to regrow any hair.

Hairloss process might bring stress, anxiety and it might also negatively affect self esteem and daily life. There are various alternative treatment types available to be applied depending on the level of hair loss (which can be determined by Norwood Scale).

Hair transplantation is the most common solution among many treatment alternatives used to regain your best look.
