Male-pattern baldness is the most common type of hair loss, affecting approximately 60 percent of men. About one-quarter of all men start to lose hair before they reach the age of 30.
Many think of hair loss as a condition that affects only men, but members of both sexes can experience hair loss. In fact, about half of all women over the age of 65 experience female-pattern baldness.
Fortunately, Prescription Doctor delivers treatment for hair loss right to your home or office door, quickly and in discreet packaging. Complete a free consultation to get started.
Hair loss is often temporary but, in some cases, it can lead to total baldness. Whether you have lost a little hair or a lot, you need treatment that stops hair loss in its tracks.
Doctors refer to hair loss as “alopecia.” There are several types of hair loss; each has different symptoms and causes. These types of hair loss include:
In male- and female-pattern baldness, hair loss follows a predictable pattern of a receding hairline followed by thinning of hair on the temples and crown, which creates a horseshoe-shaped area of hair around the sides and back of the head.
Alopecia areata is a condition where coin-sized patches of baldness appear on your scalp or elsewhere on your body. The patches can be different sizes and shapes. The condition is often the result of an autoimmune problem that causes the body to attack itself in areas of the body with hair. The autoimmune attack causes inflammation in those areas of the body, and this inflammation causes hair to fall out. Alopecia areata can occur over a short period or cause long-term hair loss.
Alopecia totalis causes total baldness. Like alopecia areata, this condition is the result of an autoimmune disorder.
Traction alopecia occurs mainly in women and as the result of hair styling. Excessive pulling, heating, braiding, bleaching, and binding can strain the scalp and hair follicles, which leads to inflammation and hair loss.
Alopecia effluvium is temporary hair loss resulting from high stress or psychological issues. Hair loss is usually more prominent at the top of your head and around your temples, but alopecia effluvium does not usually cause a receding hairline.
The most common causes of hair loss in men are associated with genetic or hormonal factors. A combination of genetics, hormones, and the aging process causes most cases of male hair loss. People with at least one parent with hair loss are more likely to experience alopecia. A male hormone related to testosterone, dihydrotestosterone (DHT), can attack hair follicles. Attacks from an overabundance of DHT can cause hair follicles to shrink and produce smaller, thinner hair.
Using certain shampoos or hair care products may damage the follicles that produce hair. These chemicals may also damage your hair to make it more susceptible to breakage and falling out.
If you are experiencing hair loss, you know how embarrassing and frustrating thinning hair can be. The hair that used to cover your head now sits on your comb or brush – you might even be able to see your scalp in the mirror. Thinning hair or bald patches can lead to negative moods, feelings of inadequacy, and even fears of looking unattractive.
Losing your hair can damage your self-esteem and your confidence at any age, whether you are in your late teens or in middle age.
Hair is an important part of human identity. Losing your hair, then, can be a lot like losing part of your identity. Because of the detrimental effects alopecia can have on your confidence and your psyche, the benefits of treating hair loss go far beyond simply restoring your hair growth – hair loss treatment can improve your self-identity, confidence with others, and your outlook on life.
There are several safe and effective treatments for hair loss in men. These treatments include:
While hair loss may be the result of genetics and hormone imbalances, lifestyle changes may help improve the quality of your hair follicles and the hair you grow.
Eat a balanced diet: Hair follicles are made of proteins, so eating a protein-rich diet provides your follicles the nutrients they need to produce high quality hair
Choose organic shampoo: Certain chemicals can harm your hair
Consume plenty of calcium: This mineral keeps hair strong, thick and healthy
