What is hair loss?
Hair loss can take many forms. In men, hair loss is often a hereditary condition (also known as androgenic alopecia or male pattern hair loss) but can also be caused by other medical conditions such as alopecia (either full hair loss in the form of alopecia totalis or alopecia universalis, or partial hair loss as a result of alopecia areata) or stress.
When hair loss is hereditary, the hair usually begins to thin first at the hairline, crown, or temples. This is due to the sensitivity of the hair follicles – the growth phase of the hair cycle decreases, resulting in hair not growing back as it should. This pattern of balding affects around half of the male population by the time they reach the age of 50.
What causes hair loss?
Hair loss in men is usually hereditary hair loss as a result of ageing. However, hair loss can also have other causes that people may not be aware of. This includes issues such as the following:
• Underlying illnesses
• Fungal infections
What are the treatment options?
The treatments for hair loss vary depending on your preferences and circumstances.
One of the available options is taking medications to help with the hair loss, for example, you can choose to try the medication such as finasteride or propecia in 1mg tablets. Both of these tablets contain finasteride, which belongs to a group of medications called 5-alpha reductase inhibitors. This works to lower the level of the hormone DHT (dihydrotestosterone), which causes a decrease in the growth stage of the hair cycle. These tablets are prescribed specifically for male pattern hair loss.
There are also a number of products for external use that you can try. These include products such as alpecin shampoo, alpecin liquid, alpecin double effect, hairfollic for Him (by Vitabiotic), regaine Foam for men and regaine solution for men.
Follow up advice
It is important that treatment for hair loss – particularly hereditary hair loss – is continued, otherwise, the progress made through the treatment will likely be lost within a 6-12 month period. Progress generally becomes visible after a 4-6 month period of treatment.
