Sometimes it’s the mirror. Other times it’s your mates. It could even be your brush or your sweater. No matter where the first indication of hair loss comes from, it will inevitably trigger some degree of concern. You may begin to ask yourself: ‘Am I losing more hair than usual?’ ‘Is that a spot where I’m beginning to lose hair?’ And if you’ve got a history of hair loss in the family and Uncle Bob’s bald as a brass door knob, you may just wonder how much hair you will eventually lose.
The answer isn’t easy to discern by yourself. There are no strict rules when it comes to hair loss and any number of factors can play a part in the acceleration of the balding process. Stress levels, health, nutrition, and various lifestyle choices can influence hair loss but every person’s hair loss is also individualised by their heredity, medical history, age and gender. The extent of the balding process is individual to you and there’s no real way of determining what level of damage to expect, so the next and most important question is – what can you do about it?
Because hair loss is individual, this question also requires and individualised answer, and just as with other questions regarding your health, you will need expert advice from a hair loss specialist. With years of experience in dealing with hair loss, they’ll be able to answer all your questions such as why you’re losing your hair, what can be done about it, as well as give you an indication of the likely extent of the balding process as relevant to you. While nothing is certain, the answer may be found in your family or personal history of hair loss, your lifestyle, as well as from studies of hair loss.
Hair loss is a very common phenomenon that affects 8 in 10 men, but many people still wonder why they lose their hair. The most common cause of permanent hair loss in men is male pattern baldness. It has a genetic basis and tends to run in the family – on either side – but can skip generations. There are many other causes however, and before any treatment for hair loss is contemplated, the cause of the hair loss should be correctly diagnosed by a specialist.
