Am I losing hair?
If you find your hair is get thinner before you’re 30, the questions become unavoidable: Am I losing hair? Am I going bald?
Research shows that up to 70% of men experience some form of hair loss in their lifetime, some before their 21st birthday. To help you get to the bottom of this issue, we’ve put together a list of questions and answers that should guide you along dealing with hair loss:
Are you losing hair in bald patches?
Known as alopecia, this condition involves losing hair in patches, often on different parts of your body. It’s usually hereditary, so consider this option if you’re starting to experience hair loss symptoms and also have a history of baldness in your family.
About 98% of all male baldness is caused by hereditary alopecia, although other factors can also play a role, such as smoking, steroids or hormone supplements.
How quickly are you losing your hair?
It can take up to 20 years to go bald (with most men starting to experience their symptoms in their 20s) but there has been cases when all hair was lost in 5 years.
Research shows that you have to lose up to 50% off your hair for it to show, so try to spot the signs before it gets to these stage.
If you think you’re losing hair, act as quick as possible. It’s easier to prevent hair loss than to promote new hair growth.
What can you do about hair thinning?
Fortunately today’s advanced hair loss treatments offer you quite a few options to prevent or revert hair loss.
- Minoxidil (also known as Rogaine)
- Low-level laser therapy
- Hair restoration surgery
The type of treatment you choose will depend on the stage you are at with hair loss and how fast it’s progressing. Hair restoration is proven to be the most effective method to treat hair loss. However, if you’ve managed to identify the symptoms in time, you start with prevention treatments and only resort to hair restoration surgery if you are not seeing results.
