While hair loss is a natural result of aging, there are reasons to worry when your hairline starts to slowly disappear. Millions of dollars are spent each year on hair loss treatments, no matter at what age or levels of hair loss. Unfortunately, men suffering from male pattern baldness or who are genetically pre-disposed to suffer hair loss will go bald inevitably. But they shouldn’t feel so helpless, as there are treatments and remedies that can slow down the balding process. In any case, it is important to act sooner rather than later. The longer one waits, the more complicated and expensive the treatment or solution will be.
A study on hair loss claims that around two-thirds of American men are likely to have thinning hair by the time they turn 35. In most cases, the onset of the problem is initially observed in their twenties. The earlier the hair thinning, the more likely the individual will be bald by the time they are in their 40s.
Toupees or hairpieces are an option, though generally not a popular one, considering the chances of embarrassing moments of ‘slips’ and ‘misses’. In addition, it can be highly uncomfortable and can require more maintenance than most men are willing to commit to, such as the upkeep of toupees, and the time it takes to put them on properly so they look natural.
For all those who are looking for other options but settling for hairpieces, Bosley Medical suggests the following steps:
- Determine the cause of hair loss
The cause of baldness and hair loss varies for each person. Whether you are vulnerable to male pattern hair loss, heredity plays a pivotal role. Also, an underlying illness left untreated, or just simply high stress levels can lead to hair loss.
- Act Now
Nobody turns bald in a day. While the process of hair loss is gradual, the intensity of the problem increases if the problem is ignored. The sooner you act the better.
- Limit use of chemical products or hair tools.
While our dependence on hair products and solutions cannot be avoided, it is best to use mild products, and limit its use when possible. Using hair strengtheners and hair colors too frequently, or gadgets like flat irons or hair-dryers on a daily basis can make your hair brittle, and damage your roots.
