Hair loss is extremely common in men, in fact more common than you might think - did you know that some 40% of men will have noticeable hair loss by the time they are 35?
And what causes hair loss? A recent news article states that there's not just one cause of hair loss in men. “Hair loss can come from an intricate interplay of hormones,” says Dr. Melissa Piliang, a dermatologist and hair-loss specialist at the Cleveland Clinic. Being overweight affects your insulin, testosterone and oestrogen levels - and hormone imbalance can lead to hair loss.
Male pattern baldness can be inherited - scientists have found that is linked to a certain gene which causes 'typical' male hair loss around the temples and crown. This happens because the hair follicles are oversensitive to a hormone called DHT (dihydrotestosterone) which causes the hair follicles to make thinner and thinner hair until they stop completely.
Other causes of hair loss include:
Are there any male hair loss treatments?
- Iron deficiency anaemia
- Under active thyroid
- Fungal scalp infection
- Some prescribed medications
There are treatment options available for men suffering with hair loss. Efficiency varies from person to person, but treatment options include more conservative measures such as specialist shampoos, medications, laser combs and herbal treatments, to more drastic measures such as hair transplants, wigs, weaves and even surgery.
