Can male pattern baldness be prevented?

As male pattern baldness is largely caused by genetic and hormonal factors, it's generally considered to be a natural process that can't be prevented. However, eating a balanced diet containing healthy levels of iron, vitamin B12 and folic acid may help to promote steady growth of remaining hair. Similarly, avoiding harsh styling products or vigorous brushing is also usually recommended.
