Why Are You Losing So Much Hair?

Are you noticing that you're losing more hair? With male pattern hair loss affecting around two-thirds of men by age 35 in the UK, there’s a good chance that you may be suffering from the condition. Fortunately, various options are available to those looking to stop their hair loss. In this article, we’ll look into the reasons why you may be losing your hair and the steps you can take to combat it.


Why do men lose their hair?


There are various reasons why you could be seeing sustained hair loss and a receding hairline as you age. These include, among others:


  • Hereditary male pattern hair loss
  • Alopecia
  • Increased stress levels
  • A poor diet


With hereditary hair loss impacting so many men across the UK, it’s highly likely that this will cause sustained thinning and shedding. Men with this condition have a particular sensitivity to a by-product of testosterone called dihydrotestosterone (DHT), which shrinks hair follicles and stops regeneration and future growth. Over time and without action, hair follicles will die and hair will fail to grow.


However, if you’re losing significant amounts of hair rapidly, a condition like Alopecia may be the root cause. As always, it’s essential to contact your GP if you’re particularly concerned about the rate of your hair loss.


What can I do about my hair loss?


Male pattern hair loss can be difficult to accept, but it’s important not to panic. If you’re experiencing the condition, you can take some impactful steps to soften the effects, including changing your diet, lowering stress levels and increasing daily exercise. However, signing up for scientifically proven treatment plans is the most impactful of all.


The impact of Finasteride and Minoxidil


Finasteride and Minoxidil are two of the only scientifically proven methods of combatting male pattern hair loss, especially when used simultaneously. Taken as a capsule, Finasteride inhibits the production of the hormone DHT, giving hair follicles the chance to reinvigorate. Meanwhile, Minoxidil increases the rate of blood flow to your scalp, ensuring that your hair follicles are receiving additional oxygen and nutrients. Finasteride and Minoxidil can help encourage regrowth when used consistently and in combination.


Take a professional consultation
