This is called "donor zone thinning" and does not noticably happen to everyone. From my observation, that too is a part of how MPB can potentially affect the entire scalp.
Yet take a look at the donor zones of someone like Newt Ginrich who is in his 70's and yet no signs of MPB whatsoever and also has a very strong donor zone. Jay Leno had a strong zonor zone, Judge Anthony Napalatano has a strong head of hair also in his upper years.
Is all of this a genetic disposition of the individual and have nothing to do with how hair follicles are individually genetically programmed?
