Male pattern loss: Hair loss around the crown of the head in men, is usually part of male pattern hair loss -- and while upsetting to many men, is "normal." http://www.Webmd.Com/skin-problems-and-treatments/hair-loss/hair-loss-introduction-mens some research is now developing about vitamin d in this situation -- it's not ready for clinical application yet, as it's only gone as far as animal research.
