most men experience hair loss, for most men this lowers
their self esteem and their confidence. I am only 19
years old my father still has all is hair so why do
I have hair loss? If you have found yourself thing this
way you need to know it’s a very common problem
hair loss often starts in your teenage years and with
age it becomes even more common in men.
You see there is a hormone called testosterone
and what happens to cause hair loss is this hormone
testosterone is converted in a man to what’s called
5-DHT, another hormone in your hair follicles. Hair
loss then starts on the front and top of the scalp because
5-DHT miniaturizes the hair follicles and over the years
hair loss continues until you are bald. This type of
hair loss is often called male pattern baldness.
Significant hair loss affects well
over one-half of the adult male population and can start
in your teen years. You are not along with this problem,
it’s so common that hair loss is considered normal
in adult males.
So what can I do about my hair loss?
There are all types of products treatments and procedures
to deal with the problem of hair loss. Some popular
product treatments are Rogaine for men and Rogaine for
women. Then there is Propecia that claims not only to
stop hair loss but actually claims to grow new hair
and is FDA approved.
Another common hair loss procedure
that is popular is called; Follicular Unit Hair Transplantation.
This is where a strip of hair filled with follicular
units is removed from the back of the scalp and then
placed into the front of the scalp where it is balding.
The follicular units of hair from this strip will grow
wherever it is planted just as it did in the back of
the scalp. I suggest you check with your local hair
loss clinics for more information on this type procedure
for hair loss.
Hair loss can cause psychological problems;
it’s often found that premature baldness causes
men to feel a loss of self-esteem, depression, introversion,
and neuroticism and feeling unattractiveness. Especially
for young men in case studies of self-esteem, introversion
and feeling unattractive. Whether you are a man or a
women hair loss is usually an undesirable thing that
lowers your self worth.
Women hair loss research has proven
Hair loss may first become noticeable in some females
in their 20's but female pattern baldness will hit 25
- 30% of women after age 50. It’s medically proven
the most effective treatment for female pattern hair
loss is the use of Rogaine (Monoxidil).
Stress can cause hair loss, high levels
of stress has been known to cause some hair loss, but
usually temporary. There are many other things that
can cause hair loss like Autoimmune disease and using
certain drugs, some illness and nutritional deficiency
may also cause hair loss early in males. Trauma to the
head accompanied by scarring can cause permanent damage
to hair follicles. Even tight hairdos can inflame hair
follicles, destroying them and stopping hair growth.
Please note most hair loss is genetic. Studies show
genetic hair loss accounts for 95% of the people is
inherited. It’s the genetic coding that hair follicles
receive during formation in the womb.
Hair loss transplantation can be very expensive to say
the least, hair transplant grafts can cost between $2.50-$10
each. The cost of the hair transplant procedure can
range from $1,000-$15,000 and up. It depends a lot on
how large the particular hair transplant session will
be. Some hair loss treatment centers will offer what’s
called in house finance programs to help make this service
