Many men experience male pattern baldness, or androgenetic alopecia, as they get older. Thinning hair or hair loss can occur for a variety of reasons including the natural aging process, heredity, or a malnourished scalp. However, just because it is natural, doesn’t mean you have to allow hair loss to affect your self-esteem any longer. If you are a man who is unsatisfied with thinning hair or hair loss, the professionals here at Male Clinic USA can help.
Why Hair Loss Occurs
Hair loss typically has more to do with heredity than a reflection of how you have cared for your hair in the past. It is natural for men to lose hair as they age. When hair loss becomes excessive in specific areas, it results in what is better known as male pattern baldness. There are three specific areas in which baldness typically occurs. A receding hairline is the most common area where many men experience hair loss. A receding hairline is generally a gradual process that progresses with age.
The second most common area is the back of the head. This area of hair loss typically occurs in a circular pattern, resembling classic male pattern baldness.
How to Prevent Progressive Baldness
Completely reversing the effects of hair loss is not a realistic goal. However, there are steps that you can take in order to minimize hair loss. Oftentimes, hair loss occurs when the scalp lacks the necessary vitamins, nutrients, and hydration that it needs to keep the hair follicles functioning properly. When the scalp lacks hydration and nutrients, it can cause damage to the hair follicles, and even inhibit their ability to produce hair.
Maintaining a healthy and balanced diet is a staple in most aspects of health. This is no different when it comes to preventing hair loss.
Once hair loss begins, it is also important to consider how you maintain your hair. Avoiding narrow combs and bristles, as well as aggressive brushing can help preserve existing hair for as long as possible.
