Hair loss in men

Men’s hair loss affects around 50% of men in the UK with roughly 30% who start losing their hair by the age of 30. It mostly starts with a receding hairline, followed by thinning around the crown and temples.

There are many possible causes of hair loss in men; genetics, vitamin deficiency, hormones (the conversion of the male hormone testosterone into dihydrotestosterone, makes hair shorter and thinner) diseases such as alopecia, lifestyle factors such as smoking, unhealthy diets and stress and medical treatments such as chemotherapy can all influence the age and rate in which men lose their hair. Another contributing factor is the number of receptors on a man’s head – the more the receptors the greater the hair-loss.

Hair loss in a man can be seriously detrimental to self-image and confidence in a man. There are many treatment options available to help combat hair loss, which can have a massive positive outcome for individuals.
