Norwooding (used in the incelosphere) or balding is the process of losing one's hair. The term "norwooding" derives from the Hamilton–Norwood scale, or short Norwood scale, which is used for measuring the different stages of male pattern baldness. A Norwood 1 means there is no hair loss, with a Norwood 7 being the most advanced stage. Most young adult men have a Norwood 1 hairline, and anything beyond a Norwood 2 is exponentially worse. "Norwood 0" is used to mean a man with an unusually low hairline, and was not part of the original Hamilton-Norwood scale. A balding man is said to be "Norwooding".
