HAIR LOSS IN MEN

Hair loss in men

Today’s society greatly influences the image and physical appearance of people. In some cases, hair loss can lead to a feeling of social failure and helplessness (“nothing can be done”) and of loss of attractiveness (loss of youth and first signs of premature ageing).

According to a study published by Sigma Dos, one in four Spanish men concerned about their hair loss admits that “they would have more confidence in themselves and would increase their social lives if they weren’t losing their hair”.

In many cases of hair loss in men, there is a hormonal component involved (androgenetic alopecia), although there are other factors that can cause hair loss. Hair loss can be divided into two main types:

ANDROGENETIC ALOPECIA

Hair loss is caused by a local increase in dehydrotestosterone (DHT), a sex hormone that causes the hair growth phase to shorten, and the hair to fall out sooner. After falling out, the hair is gradually replaced by other immature hair, which is increasingly thinner and shorter.

There is usually a hormonal component, which is inherited from both the father and the mother. A man with a bald father and grandfathers is more likely to go bald, especially before turning 30.

Male hair loss usually begins at the front of the hairline, which, as hair continues to fall out, produces the classic “receding hairline”, or at the top, producing the “thinning crown”. The receding hairline can join the thinning crown, producing a widening of the thinning area.

EFFLUVIUMS

Effluviums are a type of reversible hair loss that can affect men as well as women. A poor diet, unhealthy lifestyle, stress, etc. can cause hair loss.

Generally, the effluviums usually begin between one month and four months after the triggering factor occurs, making it difficult to associate the hair loss with a cause.

THE IMPORTANCE OF IMAGE ALSO IN MEN

Today’s society greatly influences the image and physical appearance of people. In some cases, hair loss can lead to a feeling of social failure and helplessness (“nothing can be done”) and of loss of attractiveness (loss of youth and first signs of premature ageing).

According to a study published by Sigma Dos, one in four Spanish men concerned about their hair loss admits that “they would have more confidence in themselves and would increase their social lives if they weren’t losing their hair”.
