HAIR LOSS FOR MEN

Men’s Hair Loss – All You Need To Know

WHAT IS MALE PATTERN BALDNESS?

Studies show, approximately a third of all men will be affected by male pattern baldness in the UK. Male pattern baldness is the most common forms of hair loss in men. It starts off slowly by thinning of the crown (top of your head) followed by the thinning of the temples (either side of the forehead). This can strike any man at any time but many become aware when they’re approaching their thirties.

Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) is a type of testosterone which causes hair loss. It attaches itself to the hair follicle which prevents blood from flowing to the area. This will then prevent the hair follicle from growing thus causing thinning of the hair follicle over a period of time. Eventually, this thinning will result in the balding of that area. This can be caused by genetics or environmental factors, in essence, it can be passed down from family members or stress or even a bad diet.

Types of Hair loss

There are a number of types of hair loss. Generally, the most common one is male pattern baldness, but below we have the types so you can tell the consultant what stage you may be at:

Receding Hairline

This is the receding of the temples and the front hairline. Hair is lost from either side of the temples/forehead & it looks to be of a triangular shape. You may also notice that the crown or top of the head is also thinning.

Thinning Crown

This is the top of the head, also known as the ‘crown’ or ‘vertex’. Some men will notice the thinning of this area alongside the hairline whereas others may notice one or not the other. It starts off by thinning of the area, then the scalp will gradually appear. Eventually, the area will become completely bald.

Thinning Hair

The way this appears is that the hairs are lost evenly over the top of the head. You may still have the hairline but the birds-eye view would show you thinning hairs. Some people may also notice a receding hairline but at this point, it can be difficult for some people to identify.

Alopecia

This is a condition that can be passed down genetically or by shock or stress. The hair loss occurs when the hair follicles enter a resting phase very rapidly. This kind of conditions can also be covered with the methods we conduct at Hair & Aesthetics.

Extreme Stress

This is caused often by anxiety, heavy shock or stress. The hair loss often occurs a few months after the trauma and can start off by shedding of hairs around the scalp and thinning hair.
