Depends...: Is this something that just recently started to happen or you have had this for years? Usually male hair loss is a genetic issue and not yet reversible with present available treatments. However, if this is something new or recent you should consult a Dermatologist for a final answer after taking a good look at it since there are other conditions that can cause hair loss and treatable.
