Losing many strands of hair a day is part of a cycle that all men will go through. However, for some, the lost hairs are quickly replaced by new ones. While in others, the slick new look is permanent.
Male Pattern Baldness
The genes that you were given by your parents are something that you can’t do anything about. Some men were just destined to be bald (and beautiful).
If you’re genetically predisposed, as you age, your hair follicles begin to shrink. The smaller they get, the finer, thinner, and shorter your new hair will be. Then there will come a point where no hair grows back at all.
Male pattern hair loss can begin in as early as your teenage years. Typically, the younger your symptoms start, the more hair loss you will have.
While it’s true that 95% of men can blame their baldness on their genes, there are different factors that can cause the same problem.
Other Reasons for Hair Loss
- Alopecia areata is an autoimmune disease in which your body destroys your own hair. It falls out in smooth, round patches, but it usually grows back.
- Scarring alopecia is a rare disease where scar tissue grows over the place of your hair follicles, preventing the hair from ever growing back.
- Anemia or a thyroid disease
- Radiation or chemo
- Medicines like blood thinners, vitamin A, and anabolic steroids
- Scalp infections
- Dietary issues and malnutrition
