questions about hair loss in men

Most common questions about male hair loss answered

For many guys, hair loss is a big concern. Over half of the male population experiences some form of hair loss by the time they reach their thirties, and that figure rises further by the age of 40. 

Hair loss is clearly a big issue that's not about to go away any time soon, because, despite all the advancements made in science, there is still no known cure for hair loss in men (or women). 

In this special post, we give answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about male baldness... 

What is causing my hair loss?

Hair loss can be down to a number of reasons, as there are many causes, some being temporary phases, and others being permanent. It's important to establish your hair loss type, before to set to to treat the issue. 

What are the main types of hair loss in men? 

The vast majority of men with hair loss are experiencing androgenic alopecia, which is more commonly known as male pattern baldness. This is a genetic hair loss type that cannot be reversed.  

Other common hair loss types in men include alopecia areata, which is a temporary phase of extreme shedding, forming random bald patches on the scalp, and even stress can play a big role in hair loss. Long term stress can lead to extreme hair shedding. 

How do I diagnose my hair loss type?

Self-diagnosis can be done relatively easily, or you can see a trichologist.  Male pattern baldness can be easily identified with a recession of the hairline and thinning at the crown region of the scalp. Androgenic alopecia forms a different pattern, with bald patches spaced out all over the scalp. 

Stress-related hair loss tends to happen when guys pull constantly on their hair. Stress-related hair loss is usually a case of overall thinning across the whole scalp. 

Is male pattern baldness permanent, or will it grow back? 

If you suffer from male pattern baldness then your hair will not grow back. Despite there not being a cure for male pattern baldness, there are treatments that can slow down the hair fall, and even halt it. Treatments can also support the function of healthy hair growth, and encourage some regrowth.

How do I treat male pattern baldness? 

A good treatment plan is absolutely key to treating male pattern baldness effectively. Is is very important to start tackling the issue as early as possible, because the earlier you tackle hair loss, the more chance you will give yourself of holding onto your hair for longer.  

What are the best treatments for male hair loss?

Depending on what is causing your hair loss, there are a number of viable treatment options to consider. Medical treatments like finasteride (oral pill) and minoxidil can be effective in slowing down the rate of hair fall, but like any drugs, they come with the risk of negative side-effects, which many men choose to avoid. 

Then there are non-medical alternatives that offer a safe and effective way to tackle hair loss. The multivitamin extract supplement, HR23+, can help stump hair fall, and promote stronger, faster strand growth, whereas topical solutions like keratinocyte growth factor (KGF) serum can also be effective in countering hair thinning. 

What is the most effective hair loss treatment? 

When it comes to hair loss treatments, be it medical or non-medical, results tend to vary from person to person, therefore it is impossible to accurately say what the most effective hair loss treatment is. It's a case of what works best for each individual. 

Should I get a hair transplant? 

Hair transplants can be a great way to restore the hair, but many of these procedures are far from perfect. It is important that you do not get a hair transplant too early, because other areas of your scalp will continue to lose hair, which means it will look odd, and you will certainly need to go back for more procedures. 

Hair transplants do not work well for everyone, as it depends on how good your donor area is, your hair type, your age, and your type of hair loss. Also, hair transplant procedures are very expensive, so be sure to research the topic before you get the procedure done.
