an·dro·ge·net·ic alopecia

Progressive loss of scalp hair associated with increased sensitivity of hair follicles to androgens, thought to be caused by both genetic and environmental factors. It is more common and more severe in men (where it is referred to as "male pattern baldness" or "male pattern hair loss") than in women ("female pattern baldness" or "female pattern hair loss").
