Noticed a Bald Spot? Here’s what to do next
If you’ve noticed a bald spot, or excessive hair loss (i.e. hair falling in the shower or when you style it), take action. How soon you react to the issue could define whether you can treat it with hair loss medication or with a hair transplant.
Genes (family history of baldness) or excessive stress
Hormonal balance and current health condition (i.e. thyroid problems)
Current diet (whilst unlikely to cause hair loss on its own, it can add to the problem)
High levels of dihydrotestosterone (DHT) – the androgen hormone that is caused by the factors above
Hair Loss Signs (can start as early as 25 years old)
Women: thinning of hair near partition
Men: bald spots / hair thinning on front and top of the head

Timing matters for treating hair loss
Timing is one of the most important factors in treating hair loss. As soon as you’ve noticed a bald spot, take action immediately. That could be the difference between a cost effective medication treatment or a hair transplant.
Side-effects also play an important factor. Hair loss can cause significant damage to the person’s self-image and confidence. It might have an impact on your job (i.e. if you work in modelling, film or any other similar industry) or life events (i.e. weddings, school reunions).
An efficient hair loss treatment can restore that confidence and boost in morale, even if the results are not immediate.
Small actions play a role
Professional help is the key to getting hair loss treated, but you can also help the process with small actions. For instance:
- Drink a lot of water
- Avoid stress at all costs
- Avoid prolonged exposure to the sun
- Don’t spend long periods of time in polluted environments
- Have a good hair routine (gentle combing, use high quality hair products)
- Get enough sleep
- Check your hormonal balance regularly (especially if you’ve noticed a bald spot)
