Thinning hair in men
Don't let thinning hair negatively impact your confidence
What causes hair loss in men?
Whilst lifestyle and environmental factors can contribute to or accelerate hair loss – such as stress, smoking, poor nutrition and exposure to UV or chemicals – the most common reason for hair loss in men is genetics. The early-onset of thinning hair can herald feelings of anxiety and low confidence that worsen as hair begins and continues to thin.
Thinning hair can appear from the onset of puberty, as its familiar ‘pattern’ causes a recession in the front of the hairline and hair thinning and patchiness in the crown, and on the top of the scalp. This is due to the location of hair follicles with receptors to male hormones known as androgens being bound to DHT, whereas hair follicles lacking these androgen receptors are located on the sides and at the back of the scalp (known as Safe Donor Areas), and usually maintain their growth cycles without interruption.
Loss of hair can lead to a loss of confidence
The majority of men will at some point suffer some hair loss, causing anxiety and stress. This will often negatively impact confidence both in their personal and business lives. Older men report that their hair loss can feel like an unfair disadvantage when being passed over for promotions or in establishing romantic relationships. Whilst in younger men experiencing hair thinning or the early stages of MPB can often diminish confidence at a time when they’re establishing themselves.
The relative unpredictability and randomness can be frustrating. Hair loss may follow a pattern, but each man’s experience is completely unique; rates of hair loss vary tremendously from person to person, between brothers and even between twins.
There are different approaches and schools of thought in treating androgenetic alopecia, but ultimately decisions differ from one man to the next. Whilst some prefer a ‘wait and see’ approach some with minimal recession may opt for a non-surgical medical treatment. Whilst others may choose to combat the early onset of MPB with hair transplant surgery, in order to blend hair taken from Safe Donor Areas with hair that may be susceptible to androgenetic alopecia – so keeping their hair transplant more discreet whilst being monitored in aftercare by specialists who can evaluate the quality of hair and advise on how to proceed, should hair loss continue.
