According to studies, around 30 percent of men begin losing hair at the age of 30 and above. The pattern continues to grow, leaving men conscious and dealing with their self-esteem. If you are experiencing balding, below are some of the reasons and what you can do about it.
Reasons Unrelated to Genetics
- Seasonal Changes
Humans are part animals, which is why the shedding of hair during seasonal changes is no surprise. Also called as seasonal hair loss, this occurrence typically occurs during the months of October, November, and December, or predominantly in the early winter season. However, this is usually temporary, so men should not worry much.
- The Climate
The sun and heat play a huge role in the connection between baldness and men. Too much of the two can damage the hair, resulting in hair dehydration and increased sweating. These cause follicles to lose their oily coating that protects the head and hair. As a result, the hair dries, brittles, splits, and thins, gradually resulting in hair loss.
- Extreme Stress
Stress does a lot of things to the body. For women, it may delay their menstruation and while for men, it may cause them sudden hair loss. Baldness due to stress can be temporary for those who can cope with it properly. Unfortunately, those who cannot and has the genetic propensity for hair loss may not get their full mane back.
What Can You Do?
Fortunately, due to science, there are many ways to prevent and cure hair loss. Apart from avoiding too much cold, sunlight, heat, and stress, men can also seek professional help. One is an FUE hair transplant in which hair experts individually remove hair follicles and transfer them to the recipient’s thinning area. Low-level light laser therapy is a suggested treatment as well since it involves less procedure and time.
Don’t let baldness ruin your look and self-esteem. Always desire a healthy head that’s full of hair.
