In these modern times, it’s acceptable for a man to be seen taking care of himself. No one bats an eyelid when a man goes to the gym, buys grooming products and takes care to dress stylishly. But while many men will visit a hairdresser and take time to style their hair before leaving for work or university, many do not realise the benefits of taking action to prevent future hair loss.
Hair loss affects 1 in 5 men by the age of 20. This doubles to 2 in 5 men by the age of 35. By the age of 60, more than two thirds of men will suffer. The cause of this is nearly always genetic. Male pattern baldness follows a distinct pattern – starting with a receding hairline above the temples, followed by hair loss at the back of the head known as a thinning crown. If left untreated, the entire top of the scalp becomes bald leaving hair at just the sides and back.
The good news is that the earlier male pattern baldness is spotted and properly diagnosed, the more successfully it can be managed. There are two proven hair loss treatments that can be used individually or combined depending upon the condition of the hair. Minoxidil and Propecia are the only products to have been licensed by the MHRA and approved by the FDA, the medical regulatory bodies in the UK and USA respectively.
Jonny Harris, Director of The Belgravia Centre, says, “My Grandfather (on my Mum’s side) was completely bald by his late 20’s. I myself started losing my hair at the age of about 21 – I’d notice it coming out when I put wax in my hair in the morning, and I’d see my hair all over the floor of the shower. Although I could see my hair coming out, my hair thinning wasn’t really visible at the time. I began to use treatment and since then I have had no further thinning – I am now almost 27.”
