It can be hard coming to terms with losing your hair, but learning more about the possible causes of hair loss can make it easier to understand – and treat.
Despite what you may have heard, wearing a hat all the time, dandruff and poor circulation don’t cause men to lose their hair. Hair loss in men can, however, occur for these reasons:
1. Heredity. Unfortunately for most men, hair loss comes down to genetics. This is sometimes referred as male pattern baldness, and accounts for up to 95% of male hair loss. Hereditary baldness occurs when hormones cause the hair follicle to shrink and the growth cycle to shorten, producing shorter, finer hair, eventually leading to no new hair growth at all.
2. Environmental/Physiological Factors. Excessive physical stress, diet, emotional turmoil, and rapid weight loss or gain can all contribute to a man losing his hair. These things alter the balance of vital nutrients, insulin, and hormones in the body, which can trigger hair loss.
3. Medications/Medical Conditions. Though lesson common, certain medications prescribed for acne, high-cholesterol, cancer, Parkinson’s disease, high blood pressure, epilepsy, and thyroid conditions can cause hair loss by altering the normal cycle of scalp hair growth. Antidepressants, birth control pills, steroids, and medications for weight loss can also cause a man to lose his hair. Conditions such as anemia, protein deficiency, and thyroid disease can contribute to hair loss in men as well.
4. Chemotherapy. Chemotherapy agents given to cancer patients can poison growing hair follicles, causing permanent hair loss.
Whatever the reason though, Kalos Hair Transplant offers permanent solutions that can restore your hair and boost your confidence. Dr. Strong is trained in the most advanced and up-to-date hair restoration techniques to get you back to looking and feeling your best.
