Male Hair Loss

Hair loss (alopecia) in men symptoms & causes

Hair loss in men

If you are experiencing baldness or thinning hair, you are not alone. Many men experience hair loss and male pattern baldness in the USA. The American Hair Loss Association study shows that over 66% of men will experience hair loss by thirty-five. About 85% of men have drastically thinner hair by the time they reach fifty years old. Male hair loss starts at some point in the twenties, and in most cases, it takes 15-25 years to have a large area of baldness.

The growing problem of men losing hair

About 70% of men lose hair as they age. And 25% of bald men see first signs of hair loss before age 21. By age 50, half of the global population of men experience hair loss. In a study of balding men ages 18-49, hair loss increased with aging from 16% for 18-29 years of age to 53% of men 40-49.

Men's Hair Loss Symptoms

The unexpected loss of hair

Male hair loss progress to various degrees of baldness. Male hair loss typically begins with the crown and front hairline and develops a balding area. While others develop hair loss by showing thinning hair all around the scalp. Some individuals have complete hair loss or total baldness within a short time.

The telogen effluvium stage is when a large percentage of scalp hair is in the “shedding” phase. Genetics plays a significant role in hair loss in men. Androgenic Alopecia – male pattern baldness is genetic.

Men’s androgenetic alopecia, pattern baldness

Men’s hair loss, male pattern baldness, or androgenic is hereditary because of high levels of androgens. In men, male pattern baldness, also called Androgenic Alopecia, is a genetic hair loss condition that causes hair thinning or baldness in about 50 million men in the USA. In men pattern hair loss is part of aging and genetic traits, with 40% of men showing noticeable hair loss by the age of 35, and more than 50 percent of males over 50 experience some degree of hair loss. The typical pattern of hair loss in men is receding hairline from the lateral sides of the forehead, and the crown area is characteristic. The Norwood Classification Scale shows the prevalence of mid-frontal hair loss increases with age.

It is most likely affected by male hormones called testosterone. The follicles shut down in response to DHT, a by-product of testosterone. “As a result, over time, an excess build-up of DHT in the follicle causes it to begin shrinking, which in turn alters the natural resting and growth phases of the hair,” says Reed, clinical associate professor of dermatology at NYU Medical Center.

Balding men & self-image

Balding stress

Baldness connotes our image-driven society’s unattractiveness, physical weakness, or old age. Low self-esteem and feelings of vulnerability stem from an individual’s perception of a beautiful body image. Studies reveal that handsome, healthy, and attractive are related to a person with a full head of hair. Indeed, research show employment discrimination is based on a person’s appearance. People with hair loss do not get job opportunities in many companies that promote a youthful image and strength. They worry that others are looking at their thin or balding hair.

The balding effect on men

Single men and women who had begun losing hair in their early twenties are more likely to suffer emotionally, being less attractive than others by looking older than their actual age. Balding men reported glancing in the mirror constantly and wearing hats even in warm weather. They feel frustrated and helpless about their hair loss and worry about others’ thoughts.

Losing hair? When to see a doctor?

You should see a medical professional if you see rapid hair loss, hair clumps in a shower and brush, or hair loss in patches.

Let your family doctor make a complete diagnosis, including your thyroid condition. Thinning hair is just one of the many symptoms that may suggest a low or hypothyroid disease.

Indeed, a dermatologist can help you get an early start and a chance to grow new hair again. “If you see an abnormal rate of hair fall, start controlling it with treatments as soon as possible,” says the Dallas hair restoration specialist. Most common is treating Alopecia with medical hair regrowth therapy, laser treatments, or hair growth medications.
