The facts about thinning hair and hair loss in men

Men commonly lose their hair through routine washing and brushing, sometimes up to 70-150 hairs daily. Genetic makeup is the leading cause of male pattern baldness. Medical illness and their treatments is also a leading cause of hair loss, including cancer treatments, alopecia areata, thyroid disease, hormones, inadequate protein in the diet, iron deficiency, certain medications and stress.

Thinning hair and hair loss can occur at any age, typically in the late 20s or 30s. As people age, hair growth slows resulting in thinning hair and eventually hair loss. Men with bald spots typically loose density before hair loss actually occurs. Thin hair is not generally noticeable until about 40% of its density is lost.

If you are losing more hair than normal, you should consult with your primary care physician or dermatologist, who can determine if the hair loss is related to a disease or other medical reason, and if medial treatment can help.

You DO NOT need an expensive procedure or your hair examined by a physician to detect male pattern baldness. You should, however, have your hair looked at by a hair loss expert to access the degree to which you are loosing your hair. They can recommend the best hair loss solution for you and help you treat your hair loss.
