Men Losing Hair

Posted on February 19 2018

All hair loss is devastating. No two people will have the same hair loss story/journey. Men suffer from hair loss as much as women; unfortunately, their stories aren’t always vocalized or shared. Though, society is not inclined to discuss men’s hair loss, it is an issue that needs attention and that is where we come in. We will begin this article by discussing the cause of hair loss in men. Haplessly, there are multiple reasons that cause hair loss in men, below we have listed the top reasons:

 

  • Male Pattern Baldness

  • Stress

  • Alopecia Areata

  • Medication

 

Male Pattern Baldness is the most common form of hair loss in men. Male pattern baldness can begin as early as puberty for some men. Male Pattern Baldness is also known as Androgenic Alopecia. This form of hair loss is generally predictable and gradual; it will eventually form an M pattern. In Male Pattern Baldness thinning will begin at the hairline or crown. 

When do men start losing their hair? | Find out! 

If you are experiencing Male Pattern Baldness, we recommend keeping calm. Why do you need to keep calm at a time like this? Because of…STRESS! Stress can cause hair loss to get worse or bring up other issues. Being stressed out increases your chances of developing other ailments. We understand men’s hair health is important; however, stressing about it has nothing but negative effects. 

If you are suffering from some medical issues, please keep in mind some medications could be the reason for your hair loss.  Some examples of medications that can cause hair lose in men are: testosterone or anabolic steroids.  Keep in mind these are just some examples. You will want to speak with your doctor or medical professional should you notice hair loss while taking any prescribed medications.  

Alopecia Areata is another reason for hair loss. It is an autoimmune disorder that causes hair loss in a patchy pattern. Alopecia Areata will cause your immune system to attack your hair follicles thus causing the hair loss. If you suffer from Alopecia Areata it may be accompanied with other autoimmune diseases such as vitiligo, asthma, thyroid disease to name a few.
