What Causes Hair Loss in Men?

Ready to tear your hair out over that imminent project deadline or holiday credit card bills that are rising to all new heights? Don’t seek refuge from the world in your man cave! We can approach and tackle Male Pattern Baldness (MPB) and sudden hair loss with both brawn and brains. These issues are absolutely normal and extremely common, especially based on our genetics.

Studies attribute family history and hormonal changes to thinning hair and balding as Male Pattern Baldness (MPB) reflects a polygenic trait. It's caused by a hormone called DHT and can affect any age, typically beginning as early as the 20s in men. Male pattern balding also happens to many women.

Physical ailments, such as anorexia, thyroid disease, anemia, and ringworm of the scalp can further trigger hair loss. Some medications such as chemotherapy demonstrate other typical causes of balding. Excessive stress levels and smoking are also heralded as a culprit for thinning hair.

Male Pattern Baldness

Baldness is not necessarily to blame on that favorite (but tattered) Texas hat that you practically sleep in! While there's presently no cure for male-pattern baldness, some medications can reduce it, such as Minoxidil - an FDA-approved, over-the-counter treatment, you apply to your scalp. The only drawback is consistency and continued usage since once you stop it, hair loss returns. Just like your favorite Star Wars films!

Some users report some relief from Finasteride, a prescription pill that reduces your body's DHT formulation. Like Minoxidil, it works only when you use it in a regimented manner. Always talk to your doctor before taking any medications or supplements.
