THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT MALE HAIR LOSS
HOW CAN I TELL IF I AM GOING TO BE BALD?
Losing your hair is not the same as going bald. If you are losing patches of hair in an apparently irregular manner you may have alopecia, a condition where a person ( male or female) loses patches of hair from parts of their body. Hair loss arises in a more regular diminishing pattern, usually from the temples and crown of the head, then it is more likely you have male pattern baldness.
Most men go bald – it’s nothing to be afraid of or embarrassed about.
HOW QUICKLY WILL I LOSE MY HAIR?
Male hair loss starts at some instant at their 20’s but it specifically takes 15-25 years to go bald. Some men go bald in less than five years.
WHY AM I LOSING MY HAIR? IS IT GENETIC
Male baldness pattern: Losing your hair because your body is becoming progressively sensitive to male sex hormones called ANDROGEN. The extent to which your scalp is affected by this process is hereditary. One can lose hair because of illness or surgical procedures, stressful circumstances, changes in hormone levels and scalp infections. But in many cases, hair loss is not long- lasting.
IS BALDNESS CAUSED BY EMOTIONAL STRESS OR SEX FRUSTRATION?
Some hair loss is inclined with stress although male pattern baldness is a genetic condition suspected in many men. If you find your hair is falling out in lumps or at unpredictable times, it is most likely to be the symptom of something else. This could be stress related but is unlikely to be caused by sex frustration.
WILL THE REST OF MY HAIR FALL OUT (eg. eyebrows, eyelashes)?
Only scalp hairs are affected by male pattern baldness. Other areas such as the beard or armpits might be affected by alopecia.
