British Men Go Bald Later Than Other Europeans

A New Study Says British Men Bald Later than European Men, But A Man Can Suffer Hair Loss at an Early Age Regardless of His Nationality.British men may not be seen as romantic and stylish as the French, Spanish or Italians, but when it comes to maintaining their hair, it seems they beat their European counterparts. A survey of more than 1.5 million men found that continental men become fully bald at an average age of 52 whereas British men average an age of 58 before hair loss takes over.

The survey was conducted by Alpecin. The man in charge of the survey, Dr Adolf Klenk said, “The age at which UK men lose their hair completely may be 58 but they start thinning and losing their hair much younger than that.”

A recent survey by the Belgravia Centre, a leading hair loss clinic in London, supports the view of Dr Klenk. A study of the centre’s male clients found that there is a significant rise in hair loss sufferers between the ages of 21 and 30 and thereafter patient numbers gradually decline with age.

Senior hair loss specialist at the Belgravia Centre, Leonora Doclis, agrees that men often see the first signs of hair loss at a much earlier age, “I’d say at least 3 in 5 of our clients are in their early twenties. ”

Italian Men May Bald Earlier than British Men But Hair Loss Can Affect Young Men Regardless of Country of Birth. The best way to beat baldness is to get an early diagnosis and use a tailored treatment programme. Minoxidil and Propecia are the only products to have shown sufficient evidence in large scale clinical trials to be effective in tackling Male Pattern Baldness. They have helped thousands of male clients at Belgravia. Take a look at the hair loss success stories to see the kind of results that a treatment programme can bring about.
