Men’s hair loss is one of those things that doesn’t often come up at a party but affects nearly 65% of men during their lifetime. So to all of the men over the age of 18 suffering from thinning hair or hair loss, the first thing to understand is; you’re not alone! The first step to finding a solution is understanding what’s causing your hair to thin. Here are three of the most common causes of hair loss:
Approximately 95 percent men’s hair loss is due to a condition called androgenetic alopecia – commonly referred to as male pattern baldness. In fact, 50 percent of men over the age of 50 will suffer from male pattern baldness. Male pattern baldness is most often hereditary, caused by hormones and genetic predisposition. Over time, hair follicles become smaller, causing hair to grow thinner, and eventually, stop growing entirely.
Periods of intense stress or dietary changes can also lead to hair loss (so yes, stressing out about losing your hair can, in turn, cause your hair to thin or fall out). Intense stress causes the body to release stress hormones into the bloodstream, where they bring about specific changes that enhance the body’s ability to deal with a threat. These hormones also control bodily functions like energy, fertility, and yes, hair growth.
Dietary changes can also cause hair to thin, particularly a lack of protein. Other lifestyle changes that can cause hair loss include smoking, intense workouts, and lack of sleep.
Medications like antidepressants, antibiotics, acne medications, steroids, can also cause hair loss. If you’ve recently begun taking a new prescription that may be causing your hair loss, consult your doctor or pharmacist.
