The fact you are reading this probably indicates you have concerns about the rate of your hair loss but aren’t too sure when hair loss becomes a problem. Hair loss at any age is concerning but premature baldness can be the source of withering self-confidence. The good news is a receding hair line and thinning hair can be treated effectively and further hair loss can be prevented so long as you act early and know what exactly is happening and why.
Most instances of hair loss in men can be attributed to male pattern baldness, an inherited condition which causes thinning hair and receding at the temples. It’s not uncommon for a son to start to thin out before his father because baldness can be inherited from the mother’s or father’s side of the family and can even skip generations. The hair loss is attributed to a chemical derivative of testosterone known as DHT (or dihydrotestosterone). For those who have the “baldness genes”, DHT causes the hair follicles on the scalp to gradually shrink, hindering the hair growth cycle and eventually leads to a bald crown or complete baldness.
Two-thirds of men are said to be affected by male pattern baldness by the time they’re 40 but recent evidence suggests that hair loss if affecting younger men more than ever before. Other conditions that responsible for hair loss include telogen effluvium, diffuse thinning and alopecia areata but they are more common in women’s hair loss. Male pattern baldness is vastly responsible for hair loss in men but a hair loss specialist will be able to diagnose the condition during a simple consultation.
Medically approved hair loss treatments can prevent baldness and generate hair growth but it is crucial to understand that the sooner you start treating hair loss, the greater your chances of success. The balding process is generally a slow progression but certain factors can accelerate the course so is you’re worried about balding it’s important to consult a specialist to get professional advice so as to establish both the cause and most effective treatment option.
Natural hair supplements and drug-free hair loss treatments can be beneficial in promoting healthy and optimal hair growth but the FDA-approved medications, Propecia and minoxidil are scientifically proven hair loss treatments. Years of clinical studies have proved they are safe to use, have minimal side effects and are the most effective treatments for hair loss.
There really are no miracle cures for premature hair loss and although there are treatments that can halt and even reverse this condition, none of them will work overnight. Treatments take time to work and there is no such thing as a remedy that suits everyone which is why individually tailored treatment is the most beneficial. When the proven hair loss treatments are administered in the right dose for the individual and, if necessary, supported with the right hair growth boosters, the balding process is halted and reversed in the majority of cases.
