Men’s Hair Loss: A Thing of the Past With These New Fixes

What Is Causing Hair Loss In Men

Hair loss is such a brooding insecurity in many men of the world that it is no wonder there are thousands of snake oil salesmen out there willing to give you false hope of recovery in order to part you with your hard earned money. Sad as it is, it is also very true in modern society as much as it has ever been since people have been swindling the swindled. If you ever hear someone tell you that they have a miracle cure for male patterned baldness, i would always have the same piece of advice for you, don’t believe it.

This may be a hard pill to swallow but there is no cure to male patterned baldness, and while some treatments and methods out there certainly have rare cases of people regrowing some of their previously lost hair, it is never permanent. In order to understand it more, we should start from the beginning.

Male pattern baldness

Starting with what male pattern baldness actually is. When you hear someone talk about male pattern baldness they don’t just mean some random loss of hair that may just happen to happen. This is always going to refer to the specific hair loss that occurs around a man’s scalp. This can happen to a man at almost any age in their life, but generally speaking, it happens much more frequently as you age. Getting into the statistical side of things, it is said that around 50 million men, just in countries like the united states alone, have some form of male pattern baldness and that roughly half of all men will experience this as some point in their life by the time they hit 50.

Some hair loss is natural

The fact of the matter is, hair loss is a natural part of life and the sooner you can learn to accept that the better. But if you simply can’t, well it is known that hair loss can be very psychologically distressing to many men. If you find yourself in the position where you simply can not deal with the type of hair loss described here, there is no shame in seeking professional help. Maybe talk to a therapist about the issue so that you can work on finding the root cause of your issues with losing your hair and see if maybe you can come up with some solutions that can help you live your best life even if you are bald.

I know my two cents are not worth much in a situation like this, but as a man who started to lose his hair in his twenties, it is a problem that honestly only gets better as you age. People are less ad less cruel likely due to their own experiences with the natural ravages that life puts us all through.

Or you could simply do like i started to and just shave your head, I was at least born with a pretty cleanly shaped round head so it worked out for me.

Signs of male pattern baldness

To get back on track i would have one word of warning for you here. And that is if you find yourself suddenly losing a large amount of hair one day unexpectedly, you should probably go ahead and get that checked out by a doctor immediately. Not all hair loss is due to male pattern baldness, while it is a lot and estimated that it accounts for nearly 95% of all hair loss in men, there are situations where sudden hair loss can be a sign of a much more serious issue that may actually require to buy Propecia online. So to summarize, here are the facts as you should probably know them going into this.

A few final notes

Male pattern baldness, known as androgenetic alopecia, is an issue that usually happens later in life as a mans hormones begin to shift around. It can be considered psychologically distressing, causing people to seek many forms of treatment. You may need to be careful that you are not simply losing your hair due to an infection, a nutritional deficiency, or some other psychological condition. If you do decide to get treatment you have options!!!

  1. Around the age of 28, I started noticing a significant loss of my frontal hair. It started receding pretty bad and my wife said something to me about it. It has slowly starting getting less and less in the front and with stress i notice it more. Now, that i have a daughter and lack of sleep and stress, it has been coming out more and more. I dont mind and my wife still loves me so its not a big deal and doesnt hurt my daily life.

  2. My male pattern baldness began in my twenties. I thought originally that it was an infection or that something else was going on. I went to a Dermatologist who classified it as male pattern baldness. I felt that I was way too young for this. Male Pattern Baldness is an issue on both sides of my family but it has not affected men until their fifties so I am starting much earlier.

  3. I’m 30, i started noticing hairloss around 23. It’s classic male pattern baldness, my hair is really thick but unfortunately has begun to thin and fall out. Before it gets too bad or too noticeable, I will probably do hair transplants.

  4. When I married my husband he had a full head of hair, but now he is starting to lose his hair at the age of thirty. He refuses to go out of the house without a hat on, and he won’t even consider looking into any sort of wig. The only thing he is willing to try is Rogaine and even then he is hesitant.

  5. I made it to 40 without any really hair loss issues, but now at 46 I’m starting to see a little more scalp after I get out of the shower. I’m thinking to solve the problem I’ll just remove the mirror from my bathroom, and replace it with a photo of someone more handsome.

  6. I’ve started to have a decent amount or receeded hair lose on sides of my hair line. It probably started in my early 20s. I believe it runs on my my moms dad who had same hairline as I do.

  7. I would never accept losing my hair or going totally bald. I think nowadays there are plenty of ways to stop that from happening. If I go grey that would not be as bad, but I wouldn’t want that either.

  8. I noticed my hair starting to fall out when I got out of the shower. I took a comb to my hair and a huge clump came out. I was shocked and immediately contacted my doctor.

  9. I have a family history of hair loss, so I wasn’t surprised that as I entered my 30’s, my hair began thinning. It started thinning at the back of my head. I took vitamins and tried Aveda Invati shampoo and it has seemed to slow down the loss.

  10. I have always liked my hair. A few years ago, I noticed it thinning on the crown of my head. When I mentioned it to other people (a close friend, my brother-in-law) they said they don’t see it. I purchased some minoxidil foam back then, and again more recently, but I have yet to start using it.

  11. I still have a full head of hair, and thankfully, most of my older family members have kept a good portion of theirs, too. My girlfriend makes fun of me and says I’m losing my hair, but I contend that it just looks that way because my hair is naturally thin. I had a good friend who had shoulder length hair, and after a few years he cut it. Pretty much immediately his hairline began receding, and it’s quite shocking actually to see such a radical change. I hope it doesn’t happen to me.

  12. Hair loss runs in my family, on both sides. I figured I didn’t have much of a chance from early on, and sure enough, I was about 18 when I started losing my hair. I tried combing it in different ways for awhile, but I eventually just shaved it off when I was around 21. It seemed traumatic then, but it’s not so bad really.

  13. I, personally, have had no issue with hair loss. I have always had a full head of hair, all the way since birth, and overall, I am considered to be a very hirsute person. I have body hair, facial hair, and hair on the top of my head. I even have hair on my ears! I was told that for men, your destiny regarding hair loss is directly correlated to your grandfather on your father’s side and how well his hair as stuck around: If he has a full head of hair, then you’re likely to have yours for a long time too, but if not, it’s bad news for you. At the same time, I have shaved my head once or twice, and the bald look is not a bad look at all. I am a firm believer that the hair you’re given is the style you look best in, so embrace what you’ve got!

  14. I was about 19 when I started noticing the hair loss. At first, I didn’t think much of it, but then it seemed to get worse. I started wearing baseball hats all the time. Which probably didn’t help the problem. I finally went to my doctor to see if there was anything that I could do. He prescribed Propecia. My doctor advised that I may need to take Propecia daily for three months or more before I see any difference. I did experience some side effects within the first two weeks of taking it. Some of these include: impotence, swelling in hands and feet, dizziness upon standing, headache, and a runny nose. After the initial two weeks, the side effects seemed to disappear. My girlfriend said that she notices some hair regrowth, but she said it doesn’t matter to her. It makes me feel better having hair, so I think I will continue to take Propecia.

  15. I had really long hippie hair and was pretty disappointed when I realized I was going bald. My father was bald, my grandfather on my mothers side was bald. I was destined to be bald. I didn’t realize how bald I was till I seen a home video of my 30th birthday. i was watching it the day after the celebration with friends and family and I said, “I’m not that bald, it’s the camera light.”

    I never seen the back of my head before. Everyone replied laughing, “Yes you are”

    The next day, I shaved it bald, and have shaved daily ever since.

  16. I have experienced extreme embarrassment from my thinning hair. I have hair loss in some areas as well. I find myself unable to go into social situations without wearing a hat. Sometimes this is inappropriate, so I avoid the social situation altogether. My life would be much more fulfilled if I could remedy my hair situation. I desire to have a full head of hair like I used to. I want my self esteem back.I know this would help me get back into a normal social life again and it would greatly benefit my friends and family as well. I see myself with normal hair in the future.
