When And Why Should You Visit A Trichologist To Stop Hair Loss

Thankfully,  due to social media and the age of more personal sharinging via the internet, hair loss is becoming less of a taboo subject and almost gone are the days when it was headline news that ‘Celebrity X’ has suddenly regained a full hairline or a wig/hair extension was showing.

 

By reducing the stigma surrounding the topic, more people are able to have honest conversations concerning hair loss and the treatments for it. This means that there is greater access and recognition for professionals working in this field which will ultimately raise the standards of care.

 

For the majority of people experiencing hair loss, even with the multitude of information available, it can be difficult to know who to turn to. The first indication of any problems often occurs well into the condition, when the thinning or balding is noticeable to them and the people close by. In some cases, upto 50% of the hair can be lost before a significant change is seen.

 

Men can usually tell when their hair starts to recede as the hairline is often very visible or hair cuts will not ‘sit’ the same way as usual, on the other hand for women, if the change is not sudden, a gradual increase in lost hair from brushing, combing and washing will often be ignored as it can be very subtle.

 

It can be embarrassing and so many people would try as much as they can to keep it to themselves or seek information via the Internet which can be misleading as several companies prey on this vulnerability by offering solutions which do not effectively treat the problem especially when the cause is not diagnosed. These treatments are also usually very costly and can leave some in a bad financial position.

 

If you or someone who know has a hair or scalp problem and is not sure what to do, then they need to book an in person consultation with a Trichologist.

 

What is Trichology?

 

Trichology is the study of the hair and scalp. It incorporates aspects of chemistry and human biology to understand the mechanics of the hair cycle and associated disorders. A trichologist, therefore, is a person who practices trichology and focuses on diagnosing, treating and supporting those with hair and scalp conditions.

Although it is not well known in the wider community, it is a field of study that has existed professionally for over 100 years and is well established in the scientific world, boasting many journals and continual research which aids in the production of several popular cosmetic lines.

 

 

What does a Trichologist do?

 

The trichologist will work as many others in the medical field do, by using the information gathered through consultation and testing to reach a diagnosis. Patients will usually seek out their services once a problem becomes unmanageable.

 

Initially, they will consult with the patient to diagnose the problem using verbal and physical clues from examination of the hair and scalp and then will provide suitable treatment options.

 

For example,

 

If a patient presents with severe hair loss, a trichologist will firstly take a detailed patient history to find out if the cause could be systemic and may use a tool called a tricosope to observe the area in question. In some cases, they may ask the patient to have a blood test, which can highlight nutritional or hormonal discrepancies.

 

Once a diagnosis is reached, considering all of the above information collated during the discussion and testing, the patient will then be presented with a formal diagnosis and be given a prognosis with any treatments they recommend. The treatment options are often topical (used directly on the scalp and hair) and if oral prescriptions are needed, they may refer the patient on to a Doctor.

 

Most trichologist formulate products which can be used to solve common occurrence such as itchy, dry or inflamed scalp. These conditions are often mild and improvement is rapid.

 

Other treatments include scalp stimulation via massage, laser or heat and in some cases referral for hair transplants or wigs.

 

If a diagnosis cannot be reached, the Trichologist may refer the patient to other medical professionals for more extensive testing which could help to uncover the problem.

 

Some conditions will only require one visit and have a quick course of treatment, this could be a case of Tinea Capitis or ringworm, where the diagnosis is very straightforward and the treatment would be oral antifungals.

On the other hand, some patients may have to work with the trichologist longer term especially in cases of hair loss like alopecia areata, where the aim of the treatment is to monitor the progression of the condition and try different option to at least halt or reverse it as much as possible.

 

The majority of patients will be able to work through their condition and achieve ‘normalcy’ with their hair, however for some, the damage may be permanent and the scalp may have sustained damage or the hair follicles will no longer produce viable hairs. This makes it extra important to see a Trichologist as soon as you notice any problems or have concerns with your hair.

 

List of conditions that a Trichologist can treat

 

It is difficult to make an exhaustive list of all the various conditions that fall under the scope of trichology but below are a few of the common common complaints that many will present with

 

Alopecia Areata

Androgenic Alopecia (male/female pattern balding)

Bubble Hair

Central Centrifugal Cicatricial Alopecia

Chemical Burns

Diffuse Hair Loss

Discoid Lupus Erythematosus

Folliculitis Decalvans

Frontal Fibrosing Alopecia

Hair Casts

Lichen Planus

Monilethrix

Pili Annulati

Pityriasis amiantacea

psoriasis

Pseudopelade

Tinea Capitis

Traction Alopecia

Trichothiodystrophy

Trichokrptomania

Trichotillomania

Trichorrhexis Nodosa

Seborrhea

Seborrheic dermatitis

Scarring Alopecia

Syphilitic Alopecia

Vitiligo

 

Doctors  Vs Dermatologist Vs Trichologist

 

When seeking out help people often think that only a doctor or dermatologist will be able to help but this is not always correct.

 

Doctors especially general practitioners do not spend more than a few weeks if any, on conditions concerning the hair and scalp. As they are a secondary sexual function, many doctors will often dismiss cases as it is not essential to health and does not take priority.  Understand, this does not mean that doctors are not qualified to treat these cases as they certainly are, however they usually do not have as in depth knowledge because they take a broader approach to healthcare. Patients will be treated but may not get a thorough understanding of the cause and treatments available, as a doctor’s consultation usually lasts less than 15 minutes but with a trichologist you can usually expect to spend up to an hour taking a detailed history and clinical exclamation.

 

There are a lot of similarities between a trichologist and a dermatologist as they are both focused on the skin. A dermatologist is usually more costly and may not carry out some of the treatments a trichologist would as most are prescribed for self medication. While a dermatologist will have greater scope in the range of treatments they can offer and also the ability to arrange specialist testing, wait times and referral can be a barrier.

 

Saying all this, it is very common for a trichologist to refer patients back to a dermatologist or to the local general practitioner and vice versa as the three work very well in synergy and all have their specific niche.

 

You can decide to see any professional but it is imperative that you are able to get the required information and suitable aftercare.

 

Choosing a Trichologist

 

 

Trichology has been around for over 100 years and there are a few respected institutions which are tasked with training and overseeing people who want to become trichologist and holding them accountable once they do.

 

Based on your location you should be able to find a trichologist within a short distance as it is becoming a popular profession, but there are some strict requirements you should look for before you decide to book an appointment:

 

Check their credentials

 

A trichologist will spend at least two years studying rigorously whether it be distance learning or at a physical institution. Ask where they trained so you can check the company to see how they work.

 

Worldwide there are three main institutions that it’s best to see trichologist from

 

World Trichology Society http://worldtrichologysociety.org/

The Institute of Trichologists https://www.trichologists.org.uk/

International  Association of trichologist https://www.iattrichology.com/

 

All of the above hold trichologist to a very strict code of ethics and provide them with rigorous training which produces a not only logical trichologist but also one with a clear moral code to work from, by preventing misconduct and insuring not only the well-being of the patient  but also to keep the profession of trichology in high esteem.

 

Check they are insured, as with all public companies, your safety is important and safety guidelines should be clearly displayed in the office. If you decide to have a treatment or take any form of product or oral supplement, ask for the information sheet and be wary of any side effects they may have.

 

The consultation should be paid and not free. Most institutions will require that we charge for consultations, at first glance this may seem strange or completely financially focussed however it promotes honesty and transparency. When free consultations are used, you can expect to pay dearly for any subsequent visits or be tied into a long lasting contract for multiple treatments. By paying upfront and for individual sessions, the patient is always in control and aware of the cost.

 

A good trichologist will do their best to give you a clear diagnosis and timeline of your condition(s), explaining the cause, prognosis and treatment if available. If this is not possible, they will recommend you to other professionals who can help,  but will not continue treating you just for the sake of it without any clear benefits. It is common practise to work with doctors and dermatologists as mentioned above, but also some will have an array of surgeons and wig makers on a paid referral basis but full disclosure should be given and there is no obligation on the patients end to use any of these services.

 

A good Trichologist WILL

 

  • Be fully trained by a recognized institution and have all of the revlovent insurance and safety covers
  • Spend time explaining the condition in as much detail as possible
  • Be clear and open about pricing
  • Only provide care when requested
  • Suggest more suitable options if this falls outside their scope
  • Work with other professional to promote the best outcome for the patient
  • Treat all patients with the utmost respect and kindness
  • Say when they are unable to reach a diagnosis

 

 

A good Trichologist WON’T

 

  • Offer a free consultation or long contract based treatment plans
  • Offer treatments for a condition that has no proven outcome
  • Conduct themselves in an unprofessional manner
  • Give false sense of hope or make promises in permanent hair loss cases

Why is my hairline receeding? How to deal with it?

Men around the world, regardless of age, fear of losing their hair or going bald unites the masses. In this blog, I will discuss a common type of hair loss in men, Androgenic Alopecia (AGA), also known as Male Pattern Hair loss, answering the most common questions.

 

  • What causes hair loss in men?

 

 

Androgenic Alopecia is the leading cause of hair loss in men and will affect  up to 80% of males by the time the reach 80 years of age. (1) The onset is usually around the mid twenties and will start as a receding hairline or thinning of the crown area.

 

Androgenetic Alopecia is loosely translated into – hair loss caused by androgens. The androgens in this case are the hormone Testosterone. Free testosterone in the body is converted into a more potent form called DHT (dihydrotestosterone) by the enzyme 5-alpha-reductase. The DHT causes the hair follicle to slowly stop producing terminal hair and instead have a shorter growth cycle resulting in shorter, fine hairs vellus hair, found on other areas of the body.

 

AGA is an autosomal dominant trait, which means that it can be inherited from either the mother or father although it is not normally expressed in women due to low levels of testosterone.

 

 

Why is my hairline receding?

 

The first symptom of AGA is usually a receding hairline. The Hamilton–Norwood classification system shows the clinical progression of hair loss (2). The diagrams depicts 7 stages of hair loss which all start with a general regression of temple hair. However this study was not without its flaws as it was only conducted on caucasian males and may not include racial differences.

 

  • How do you stop a receding hairline?

 

Once you start to notice hair loss it is imperative to speak to a professional who can accurately diagnose and prescribe the correct treatment options. AGA is notoriously difficult to treat but there are other contributing factors which have been known to speed up its progression.

 

  • Men who are very active or take supplements have to be careful when taking whey protein isolate that may contain extra testosterone that is not needed in the body and can be converted into DHT. (3)
  • Stress is a major cause of hair loss due to the chemicals released by the nervous system. It can even result in an immune reaction where the follicles are attacked or permanently destroyed. (4)

 

 

  • How can I regrow my hairline?

 

Often once it’s very hard to stop or reverse without the use of drugs. There are two medications on the market that are commercially available and have been used as a treatment option for treating male pattern baldness and receding hairlines.

 

  • Minoxidil is used topically and is sold most notably as the brand Regaine. It is a potent vasodilator and increases blood flow to the area increase the length of anagen, the growth part of the hair cycle. The specific mechanism are unknown but the concentrations of 2&5% have been found to restore hair to a cosmetically pleasing level. The major downside of minoxidil is that the success rate are very low, around 20%. (5) It must be applied consistently and for life as once usage is stopped, so will any progress and the hair loss will return with immediate effect.

 

  • Finasteride is another product that can be taken orally but has to be prescribed by a medical doctor. It inhibits the activity of the enzyme 5 alpha reductase which is the key component in converting testosterone into DHT and subsequently causing hair loss (6).

 

Both of these medication have very serious side effects which some men will find outweigh the rewards of increased hair growth. They are mostly due the the lowering of testosterone which can affect libido, erectile function and other blood vessel disorders.

 

  • How can I hide my receding hairline?

 

 

If you have realised that you’re suffering from alopecia or just general thinning of your hair, there are several steps you can take to reduce the visibility of the hair loss and hide if you so choose:

 

-Grow your hair longer,

Only certain parts of the scalp are affected by AGA, so even if you experience loss in certain areas you may still be able to grow hair to a reasonable length to hide or shield thinning areas.

 

-Use hair fibres

Hair fibres can be used to darken of fill sparse areas, reducing the visibility of the scalp.

 

-Hair replacement units

For more widespread hair loss, a wig or toupee can be used in conjunction with the remaining hair for a seamless blend that is virtually undetectable.

 

-Hair transplants

Many men opt to have a hair transplant as a more permanent action to tackle AGA. Donor hairs are taken from the occipital area and inserted into the hairline and crown. This can be expensive but the technology is rapidly improving for less scarring and better results. It is important to note that some people require several surgeries and the newly implanted hairs do not always take or causing subsequent growth.

How To Regrow Hair? 20 Best Natural Tips That Work

If you are interesting on how to regrow hair, this is your guide. Hair loss is a fear of any individual. The thing about hair loss is that you don’t notice it until it’s too late. Losing hair can cause severe self-esteem issues and even depression in some cases. While hair does not have a lot to do with skin, hair loss can make you look older. A receding hair line is often considered a sign of aged look in men. For women, hair loss can lead to thinner looking hair with no volume, thus reducing its appeal.

Hair loss can be battled with several remedies. Celebrities commonly indulge in hair reconstruction, hair extensions and consume several clinically developed drugs to induce hair growth. However, there are over a dozen natural remedies that help with hair regrowth. The best part is that they don’t come with side effects or expensive tags. Here are 20 of the best guaranteed measures on how to regrow hair:

  1. Hair Massage Help Your Hair To Grow

A hair massage is one of the simplest hacks to ensure good hair regrowth. Typically massages help in improving the circulation of the scalp. Here, when you massage your scalp you will be activating your hair follicles. By improving the circulation amongst hair follicles, you will be stimulating hair growth.

You can massage your scalp for about 5-10 minutes about twice a week. Many individuals prefer massages without oil. However, using an essential oil may come with combined benefits. For example, you could use coconut or almond oil to condition your hair during a massage. Always remember not to massage too roughly as this may weaken your hair roots.

  1. How To Regrow Hair With The Right Comb

The best way to ensure hair regrowth is to stop habits that promote hair fall. Many people do not realize that using the wrong comb directly affects hair fall. It is common to witness a little hair fall each time your brush your hair. But when you use the wrong comb you are likely to lose more hair.

A plastic comb or a closely packed comb can stress on your hair while combing, thus causing hair fall. A wide toothed comb, especially a wooden one will prevent this from happening. You may want to give the rest of the styling objects a rest. Using a rolling brush also increases your chances of hair fall. To prevent weak roots and hair fall, stick to a wide toothed comb.

  1. Herbal Rinse

Switch your shampoo bottles with a herbal rinse. No matter how expensive your shampoo is, it will contain a tonne of chemicals. While they give results in terms of shine and texture, they stunt hair growth. If you want to know how to regrow hair, it is by using the right products.

You can buy several herbal rinses from an organic cosmetic shop. Otherwise, you can easily make one at your home. There are several DIY herbal rinses available online. The best combination of rinses usually include chamomile, green tea, hibiscus extract, lavender oils etc. Use the rinse twice or thrice a week instead of a shampoo. These rinses directly come in contact with your hair and scalp. Hence, your scalp can absorb the nutrients more effectively.

  1. If  You Want To Regrow Hair, Hydrate

Drinking water for good hair and skin is an age old saying. If you want lustrous hair then water is your way to go. Make sure you drink at least 6-8 glasses of water a day. By hydrating your body, you also improve the circulation of blood to your scalp. This helps in keeping cells in the scalp and hair follicles active and energized.

  1. Hair wash regularly

Washing your hair or rinsing your hair regularly also plays an important role in hair regrowth. If you have oily skin or tend to sweat a lot then you must have more frequent hair washes. When dirt accumulates on your hair it reduces the shine and liveliness. However, when the same settles on your scalp, it blocks pores thus slowing the process of hair regrowth.

It is very important to maintain a clean scalp for hair regrowth.

  1. Hairstyles

If you want to enable good hair regrowth then you should make a few changes to your hair styles. Avoid any hair style that brings your hair together and clasps it tight. Ponytails, buns and tight intricate braids fit this category. By tugging your hair too much, you put extra strain on the roots. Eventually your hair roots will get weaker and your hair starts falling out easily.

Avoid such hair styles as much as you can. You must try your best to make sure that you don’t strain your strands too much. If you are used to styling your hair often, then the only remedy here is to go easy on the tugging. Let your mane flow freely. More here:

  1. Air drying to Hair Drying

Hair dryers often end up distributing uneven heat or excess heat. Though many dryers come with a cool shot option, the heat delivered is enough to cause damage. Whenever you are not in a hurry, try to air dry. This way you won’t be drying out your scalp and ruining the moisture balance. Air drying also helps in hair regrowth because you are not damaging the scalp.

  1. Sensible Styling

Styling tools such as curl irons or straighteners often come with damaging heat settings. The best you can do is to not style your hair when it is already falling too much. However during your process for regrowth, use sensible styling equipment. Hair straighteners can make your hair appear longer but thinner. Curls look voluminous on the other hand. You can opt for heat less styling options that come with minimal to no damage to the hair.

  1. Citrus Power

Consuming citrus fruits such as oranges and lemons can greatly promote hair growth. The vitamin C present in these items directly appeals to the hair follicles. Many individuals have reported an increase in hair growth and a decline in hair fall once they included more citrus fruits.

  1. Eat clean

Avoiding fatty substances causes an overall improvement in health. Hair is nothing but an extension of our body. What we eat is what causes the appearance of our hair. If you consume more protein then you are likely to have shiny locks. If you consume fruits and veggies with more water content then you will have a balanced scalp. Eating clean and right benefits your hair in ways you don’t know, starting with hair regrowth.

  1. Banana Pack

Banana packs are a famous trend amongst many women. Bananas are known for their nourishing and moisturizing properties. When it comes to applying it on the scalp, bananas are expected to do the same thing. Bananas are loaded with potassium and while applied on the scalp, improve the scalp’s conditions. Dandruff, dry skin etc. can be cured with a banana pack.

Take one or two bananas based on your hair length and blend them. You can even use a fork to mash them. Apply a little olive oil to the mixture and blend further. When you get a thick paste, apply carefully all over your hair and scalp. Leave for 30-45 minutes. Rinse thoroughly.

  1. Hot Oil Therapy

Oil massages are hands down the best way to pamper your senses and your hair. Applying hot oil on the hair and scalp is known to moisturize and condition your hair. Similarly, on the scalp it is said to open hair follicles that stimulate regrowth. Hot oils massages are definitely more effective as they are absorbed faster. Heat a tablespoon of coconut, jojoba or olive oil and apply it to your hair. Alternatively, you can add a few drops of essential oils too. Peppermint or lavender essential oil prevents dryness of the scalp and hence can be mixed with the hot oil.

Apply the oil on your hair and scalp, massaging it gently. Wrap a towel dipped in hot water around your hair so you can seal the moisture. Shampoo and rinse thoroughly after an hour.

  1. Onion Juice

Onion juice is popular worldwide for inducing hair growth. Blend a few onions and squeeze out the juice. Apply the juice on the scalp and on areas with receding hair. Leave for a minimum of 20 minutes and rinse. Onion juice has been known to have helped in treating alopecia in the scalp.

  1. Stay Stress Free

One of the main reasons for hair fall is stress. If you want to know how to regrow hair then it is a good excuse for you to let down your guard and take a chill pill. Unwind and relax when you feel stressed out by doing something fun and easy. Surround yourself with good vibes. If you are stressed then remember not to touch your head at all. Studies have shown that several individuals under stress fiddle with their hair. This too leads to hair fall. More about Hair Growth Oil

  1. Get Good Sleep

The time our body secretes growth hormones and other hormones is during the night. So make sure you are always asleep from the period of 11-3. You need to sleep a minimum of 7 hours to wake up with a fresh and happy mood. A lighter mood in the morning promotes great skin and hair length.

Getting a decent amount of sleep is known to decrease greying of hairs and hair fall. So hit the bed and hit snooze till you reach the 7 hour mark.

  1. Organic Colors

Avoid using artificial hair colours. Even the most expensive saloon treatments could be ruining your hair. When it comes to colouring, even when it is as simple as high lights, make sure you go for organic colours. Even if the stylist is too careful not to apply it on your scalp, the colour bleeding from your hair may come in contact with your scalp during hair wash.

Organic colours do not possess harmful chemicals that ruin your hair in the long run. Besides, when you have an option to go organic it is better to embrace the change and go with it. Henna is a known element for naturally colouring your hair. The best part is that you can add colours too. Several DIY instructions suggest using strained tea leaves to give a brown tone to the hair. Likewise, you can find one for almost any shade.

  1. Don’t stay sweaty

When you are working out at the gym or going for a swim, chances are you are going to have a lot of dirt. Be it sweat from working out or chemicals from the pool, you need to wash up quickly. This way your scalp is free of extra elements. Sweat leads to clogging pores while chemicals down right go up to causing baldness.

When you go for a swim or work out, shower as quickly as possible. Use a mild herbal shampoo to rinse your hair.

  1. Wet Care

One of the best ways to regrow hair is to not interfere with wet hair. The rules are simple- Don’t tie or braid wet hair; don’t comb wet hair; don’t rub the wet hair too hard on the towel. Do not rub your scalp to dry when it is still wet. Taking care of your hair while it’s wet goes a long way in providing strong roots for hair regrowth.

  1. Omega 3s

Omega 3s are the best hair problem solver of the century. Since they are loaded with nutrients, they help in enabling growth and regrowth of your hair. Consume a lot of fish instead of depending on store bough supplements. You will see a visible change in a few weeks.

  1. Avoid the Sun

Avoid the sun from directly falling on your hair or scalp. Direct sunlight may cause irritation and itching or dryness of the scalp. This in turn affects the balance of the scalp. You can protect your head with a hat or a scarf during summer.

The sun’s rays cause cancer, making us run for sunscreen. Likewise, run for a good serum and a mask before things get too hot.

DHT Blocker – How To Choose The Best And How Do They Work?

DHT Blocker – How To Choose The Best And How Do They Work?

 

DHT blocker can be an effective way to stop hair loss.

Science has struggled for decades to better understand the biological cause of hair loss. It is not an easy question, but nowadays we can answer it confidently. It is widely accepted that, in 95% of cases, hair loss is caused by a substance called Dihydrotestosterone – commonly referred to as DHT.

A powerful metabolite which occurs naturally in the human body, and the largest cause of hair loss in men and women alike. DHT is very important for men in early ages, as it’s necessary to develop certain male characteristics such as facial hair. Over time, it becomes less essential but still plays a role in your hormonal balance.

Science behind the Dihydrotestosterone and hair loss

 

Over time, however, DHT tends to inhibit the hair growth ability of the follicles. Some people are not affected by it in the scalp, but individuals with a genetic tendency to hair loss are sensitive to DHT’s effects.

Now that science better understand what causes hair loss. It becomes much easier to treat.

In fact, there is a wide variety of products on the market right now which will effectively protect you from the effects of DHT, or even reverse them altogether.

These products are known as DHT blocker, and they can work in a variety of ways.

 

Several pharmaceutical companies who produce hair loss products claim this function.

For decades scientists have struggled to find out the biological causes of hair loss and until recently this proved extremely difficult as there are several types of hair loss and seemingly just as many cause for each type.

However as technology and research methods have improved it has become clear that most forms of hair loss may follow a similar route and a common component is DHT.

Role of DHT

 

Dihydrotestosterone is present in the body of all people and is actually very useful. It is crucial in the sexual development of males. It is very similar to testosterone and is synthesised more during puberty where it is responsible for changes in voice facial hair and reproductive development.

As we age we still maintain a small need for DHT but some individuals become sensitive and it starts to act inconvenient ways.

The most common type of hair loss in men (95%) is Androgenic Alopecia, most commonly referred to as male pattern balding. It is very recognisable as the is distinct hair loss as the crown and temples leaving hair only at the back and sides of the head before full baldness ensues.

==> more about signs of balding

Cause of any hair loss

 

It is important to establish the cause of any hair loss, as this will determine the next steps in terms of treatment or management.

While there is no method to fully reverse baldness as yet, it can be managed in different ways.

If hair loss occurs suddenly, the cause may be medical and it is important to see your doctor. Some types of hair loss can be an indication of a stress, nutritional deficiencies or using the incorrect hair products. A simple blood test may be able to find any reasons and also improve the diet and eating healthy will improve hair growth.

How DHT affects hair growth

 

DHT tends to inhibit the hair growth ability of the follicles by acting as competition for receptor space instead of behaving as a sex hormone. Some people are not affected by it presence in the scalp, but individuals with a genetic tendency to hair loss are sensitive to DHT’s effects.

When a DHT sensitive individual does not protect themselves, the substance will damage hair follicles, which will begin to produce less and thinner hair, until it stops producing any hair at all.

 

This explains the gradual loss of hair that occurs with Androgenic Alopecia and can occur over several decades starting as early as the end of teenage years.

Basically the process consists of DHT attaching itself to receptor cells in the hair follicles, preventing vitamin, minerals and proteins from reaching them. Without these important nourishing substances, the follicles slowly become unable to sustain life, shrinking in size.

dht in action
How 5α-Dihydrotestosteron (DHT) block grow your hair

 

Of course, the miniaturization of the follicles will cause hair to grow at a slower and slower rate, either lengthening the resting stage or shortening the growing phase. The hair shaft becomes thinner with each growth cycle, until hair stops emerging.

This change can be permanent once the follicles reach a certain size however most will still produce some hair which may resemble vellus hair (covers most of the body) or the hair cycles becomes so long that they seem dormant.

Androgenic Alopecia in women

 

AA is not limited to men but the expression and look of the hair will be different.

Women can experience hair loss at anytime in their life and may actually have more recorded cases compared to men.

Most are due to human error caused by using strong chemicals or improper hair dressing techniques.

Women are prone to more hormone changes which can result in hair loss. But in most cases these are temporary and can easily be reversed.

Common causes of hair loss are due to pregnancy or taking contraceptive medications.

DHT and hair loss in women

 

As women age and approach menopause the balance of the sex hormones (androgens) changes. Even a subtle rise is testosterone and DHT can cause hair loss in those who have a genetic predisposition. It can be hard to test for confirmation as the baseline level of DHT can not always be measured for a comparison before and after the onset of AA.

The characteristics include a general thinning if the top of the hair from hairline to crown. Unlike men the area will not become bald. Will be very sparse and the hair will look see through making the scalp easily viewable.

As women tend to experience this type of hair loss in smaller numbers and at a higher age most of the research and products are aimed at men.

Many women will use other means to disguise the hair loss rather than seeking treatment. They are more likely to seek advice solely from their hairdressers who would probably suggest a new hair colour, cut or even wigs.

As Androgenic Alopecia a genetic condition it is possible to tell from older immediate family members if you are probably going to lose your hair in this fashion. You can inherit AA from either parent and will possibly start to lose your hair at a similar age. If that is the case you can either embrace the journey or seek to find alternative methods to maintain your hair.

How Can You Prevent Hair Loss Caused By DHT?

 

While leading a stress-free life and maintaining proper nutrition are important steps that’ll help with hair loss, they aren’t likely to be enough, as DHT occurs naturally in the body and some individuals are sensitive to it.

Instead, to prevent DHT-induced hair loss, it is best to use a DHT blocking product.

 

In general, there are four ways to effectively block DHT and prevent hair loss. Products usually have one of these effects, or a combination of them:

1. Reducing DHT production in the body.
2. Inhibiting the production of 5 alpha reductase – the enzyme which converts testosterone into DHT.
3. Reducing substances that produce said enzyme, such as cholesterol.
4. Preventing DHT from attaching to the hair follicles‘ receptors.

Any product that achieves one or more of these goals can be considered a DHT-blocker, and if it manages to do that effectively, it will prevent hair loss to varying degrees.

Choosing The Best DHT Blocker Product

 

An effective DHT blocker will undeniably protect you from hair loss.

They will come primarily in the form of supplements or shampoo.

Some products promise to reverse it entirely in a mere 4 months, while others make more conservative claims.

Over the last few years, hundreds of new DHT-blocking products have been launched. This can make it hard to properly understand your options and make a conscious choice.

In the end what matters is to make sure the product contains effective DHT-blocking Ingredients and is generally safe to use.

A simple online search on a products’ active ingredients will let you know whether the substances are powerful blockers or not. Similarly, search online for reviews and accounts from individuals who have used a product and carefully consider their opinions on it.

It is important to note that most DHT blocking specific products come with a variety of side effects. Many only work while the products are continually used so it is crucial to make any informed decision before starting any treatment

Minoxidil

 

How to these commercial products fair when tackling hair loss

Minoxidil is the active ingredient in the GETTIK line of products and many others. It was actually discovered during trials for blood pressure treatments. Many patients reported that their hair was growing back even though they had been bald(ing) for several years.

More research was done and it was found to be a powerful agent at not only disrupting but revering Androgenic Alopecia in men and women.

Minoxidil increases blood flow which stimulates hair follicles, promoting hair regrowth in 4 ways:

1. Reverses miniaturisation of follicles.
2. Increases blood flow around follicles.
3. Stimulates follicle movement from resting to hair growth phase.
4. Extends each follicle’s growth phase.

This has seen it become one of the leading products around the world for men and women in the battle against hair loss.

Sideefects include:

Acne

Burning sensation at site of use

Coughing

Headache

Nausea

Low libido  plus many others

Although minoxidil is a proven hair loss drug and when used consistently it can reduce the appearance of hair loss and increase growth.

 

It will only work when used continually. so imagine for most men AA starts in the mid twenties. This would mean applying a product daily for the rest of your life.

Minoxidil products are apply topically to the area affected (scalp) in the form of foams, ointments and shampoos. This allows for the quickest penetration and reaching the target site. A lot of dermatologists prefer this method as less of the body is exposed to this strong chemical, this can be disputed as to be effective some traces will be found in the surrounding tissue as blood due to diffusion although much lower than if it was taken internally.

Finasteride (1mg)

 

Is another treatment for hair loss. It is taken in pill form (internally) and works to inhibit the enzyme 5 alpha reductase which in turn can decrease serum levels of DHT by up to 70%.

Generic Name: finasteride
Brand Names: Propecia, Proscar

It is also commonly used to treat a number of other conditions including prostate enlargement, excessive hair growth and for the hormone replacement therapy in transgender women.

Unlike minoxidil which can treat both male and female pattern hair loss, Finasteride is only effective with males. This success rates for commercially viable hair growth even after 6 months of treatment is around 25%. Aside from low success rates it is the preferred choice as the side effects are milder and less common.

Some products containing either drug are available on the highstreet for all to purchase however the concentrations are so low it is not worth the money.

Before you take it, ask your pharmacist or doctor. They can first confirm that safe for you. Or it will be a complete waste of time and money.

Going For A Natural Option

 

Instead of using artificial products, a lot of people choose to treat their DHT-induced hair loss through the use of foods that naturally block it.

A lot of foods can have that effect, which make it relatively easy to treat your hair loss by consuming at least one of them every day.

Some can be used internally while others can be applied directly to the scalp.

As they are all natural the benefits will not be limited to preventing or treatmenting hair loss but will also generally improve your health and well being.

Even if you would rather get a supplement or a topical product, these will almost always contain natural blockers, so it’s important to educate yourself on the effectiveness of each, so you can pick a something with all the most effective ingredients in it.

Top Hairstyles For Women Over 50 | 2018 | Photos and video

hairstyles for women over 50

  Top Hairstyles For Women Over 50 And Who From Celebrities Use It

Here are some of the more appealing hairstyles for women over 50. A timeless, beautiful look is always cherished, and something women should strive for.

1. Favorite hairstyle for women over 50: BOB

One of my favorite looks for women over 50 is a Bob, there are so many options with Bobs. You can go with a classic bob but why, the length is great for lifting your face and giving a more youthful appearance.

  • Bob-a is a classic bob but with a shaggy bang, I love giving women the option of a bang as we age because you can soften some of the fine lines. You do need to be careful adding a bang to and older face because if the bang becomes too heavy or too solid it will block the face off and make the wrinkles more noticeable. Always think soft, flowing, movement are great words to keep in mind for older hair. So this bang I would add with a Razor to keep the ends wispy, I would also layer the bangs into the back and overextend some of the back into the front. This kind of layer is soft and subtle but keep the hair soft looking without the harsh lines.
  • Bob-b is very layered and a really fun option for hair, this is one of my favorite cuts for women of all ages but works really well for over 50. This bob has a Box layer, that is where the hair is pulled straight out from the head and layered, then brought straight up into a long layer position and laired again. The 2 areas are not blended so it leaves the top a bit longer then the bottom. This effect makes it look soft and movable but still short enough to not look weighed down. The next step in the layering is the sides are over extended into the back leaving the front area longer. This look looks great when done with a razor cut but it has to be the right hair type for the razor.
  • Bob-c is a regular classic long bob. This look should be just slightly under the chin for length. To make this better for over 50 is should have a slight layer added to it with some soft face framing layers in the front.
  • Bob-d and Bob-e I wanted to show what doing different kinds of layers to a bob can change the look completely.

When choosing a style always save a picture to your devise or print a copy up and bring it too your appointment. All stylists have different kinds of training so descriptive words can become confusing and that is where mistakes happen. All stylists are visual artistic people and pictures help us immensely when helping you choose a style.

 2. Long haistyles for women over 50

Over 50 isn’t stigmatized like it used to be it is still young and you can really do anything you want with your hair but remember a few key tips to keep yourself looking young!

Have layers in your hair, don’t do sharp angles, keep hair soft looking not heavy. If you choose to have long hair make sure you have lots of movement (layers, face framing layers and or bangs but soft bangs) and spend the time to add waves and finish your look.

Both of these look are long both have layers in varying degrees and B has the perfect kind of bang for over 50 hair.

Another look that looks great on women over 50 is a bit longer look but one with lots of layers.

  • Long Layer a is the perfect length, it is just slightly below the collarbone this look has a long layer and face framing layers. The long layers should only be in the bottom 3 or 4 inches of the hair but the face framing layers can be as many as you want. The length of her face framing layers are about her cheek length, she also has a soft long bang.
  • Long Layer b is a bit more of a classic long layer look. Her long layers again are about the bottom 3 to 4 inches of the length and her face framing layers are just below or right at the chin.
  • Long Layer c is a little bit shorter then the others, this length should be just above or right at the collarbone. She also has long layers in the bottom 3 to 4 inches, she does not have face- framing layers but you should finish the layers on the length around the sides as well.

My favorite length for women over 50 is mid-chest,

that can be a couple of inches above your chest line to collarbone length. I think this gives women the most flattering length. It helps us life our face keep thing light and fresh and works well for volume.

I also think one of the best Go To styles is to stick to a pretty basic but always flattering long layer with face angling and shorter layers in the front area.

I also like a longer side bang, that gives women added softness around the face without cutting the face off with a full bang.

However long side bangs don’t work for all lifestyles if that is the case and you need/want a regular bang just make sure it is done with soft edges and has a layer to it to help it but light and airy.

These are all cut very similar with varying degrees of layers and bangs.

1) The Blowout Hairstyle

This is a fantastic look and striking at the same time.

The hair is blown out as the name suggests with luminous waves. It makes it stand out in the right way. If you start to include highlights into the mix (golden), you are going to look fantastic.

A celebrity who rocks this hairstyle would be Raquel Welch. It’s easy to the eyes, and she enjoys a gold tinge to her hair that emphasizes volume.

2) Ombre Waves Haistyle Is Nice For Women Over 50

This is a look that has been made famous by none other than Michelle Pfeiffer who has earned acclaim for her charming hairstyle.

The ombre wave is subtle but aesthetically pleasing at the same time.

The goal is to create waves in one’s hair and go from “dark to light” color wise. So, with Michelle Pfeiffer, you are looking at the hair starting dark brown at the top and converting into a light blonde near the bottom. It’s a unique look and one that does add value to her overall appearance.

3) Long Shag

This is a look made famous by Suzanne Somers and is eye-catching, to say the least!

Suzanne Somers looks to rock a hairstyle where it adds volume to straight hair. She mixes short and long bangs and ensures the variation is what adds to her look. With Suzanne Somers, you are also looking at blonde hair, which pops out even more.

While the color doesn’t matter, it’s good to look into a lighter color for texture. It helps define the different bangs and how they join to create a “long shag.”

4) Classic Hairstyle Layered Bob Specially For Women Over 50

This is a classic look when it comes to top hairstyles for women over 50.

Diane Keaton loves the layered bob and has rocked it for a while due to how pleasing it is. The premise is to create a look that falls right under the jawline (i.e. bob) but has layers present. She mixes things up by having short-swept bangs near the front of her face.

This adds texture to the look in comparison to a straight bob as most women get.

If you want to gain a bit of “oomph” with your hairstyle, the side-swept bangs are a real winner.

Additional Recommendations

1) Long Layers (Madonna)
2) Gentle Waves (Dana Delany)
3) Loose Curls (Sarah Jessica Parker)
4) Wavy Lob (Glenn Close)

Each look is unique and adds something to the celebrity’s appearance. If you want something that resonates and adds personality to your appearance, these are the ones to go with.

Brunette with Blonde Highlights

Hair Cloning 2018 | How Does It Work And When Will Be Avaliable?

Hair Cloning 2018 | How Does It Work And When Will Be Avaliable?

 

Hair cloning is one of the most promising treatments for common genetic hair loss (a.k.a. androgenetic alopecia). It is being researched by pioneering hair restoration physicians such as Dr. Bernstein, who works in collaboration with Columbia University and hopes to be the first to develop a treatment for hair loss.

Hair Cloning And Multiplication Processes

 

Hair cloning is one of the latest fields of scientific research to make rapid advances in the quest to cure genetic baldness and androgenic alopecia.

The treatment involves the removal of around 60 to 120 hair follicles followed by the micro-dissection and removal of specific cells, which are multiplied inside a laboratory.

The new cells are then implanted into balding areas on the scalp to result in new and permanent hair. In theory, this “unlimited” supply of new hair can be created and then implanted using the original 60 to 120 follicles.

It has been suggested that this technology could become a reality by 2027.

 

However, substantial work is required to make “hair cloning” a successful option.

The Hair Growth Cycle

 

To know the processes involved in “hair cloning”, you first have to understand hair growth cycle as well as sheds. Hair regenerates naturally in a cyclical pattern which involves:

the anagen phase (growth)

the catagen phase (transition)

the telogen phase (shedding and resting)

and the return to the anagen phase (regeneration)

 

The stem cells found in the hair follicle base (the dermal papilla) controls regeneration processes.

The presence of an abundance of these stem cells results in fuller and thicker hair. When it comes to female and male hair loss, the number of dermal-papilla cells decreases during the anagen phase, along with subsequent hair which is miniaturized.

Eventually, dermal papilla stop generating enough cells for regeneration.

Once this occurs, there are no new hairs that need replacing and the older hair falls out, resulting in baldness.

Hair Cloning Process?

 

Hair cloning is a process that involves the extraction of a small amount of follicular units from the scalp. The extraction is done using a local anesthetic.

These follicular units will then be cryopreserved and banked until needed.

This will be followed by unfreezing a few of the follicular units. Then processing these units to isolate specific cells that are actively involved in the production of a hair shaft.

The cells will then divide and multiply.

The cells will be injected into balding areas over the patient’s scalp.

These implants are designed to rejuvenate thinning hair and result in the production of thicker hair shafts.

Differences Between Hair Multiplication And Hair Cloning

 

The idea behind hair-cloning process involves extraction of healthy hair-follicle cells from the patient, followed by cultivating a number of clones “in vitro”.

After a period of time, the cloned cells are transplanted back into the patient’s scalp.

Hair multiplication involves hair follicles which are extracted and transplanted onto the bald areas where they will regenerate. 

Hair Multiplication

 

In hair cloning, germinative cells are usually multiplied outside the body, ideally in unlimited amounts.

On the other hand, hair multiplication involves removing hair follicles from the donor‘s scalp and manipulating them such that the number of hairs is increased significantly.

This might involve cutting or transecting hair follicles and directly implanting them into the scalp, in the hope that the hair follicles will regenerate and grow new hair.

There is another technique that uses plucked hair fragments instead of transected or whole follicles.

Hair multiplication using plucked hair is based on the idea that it’s an easy, non-invasive way to obtain germinative cells.

Furthermore, the shaft of the plucked hair serves as a ready-made scaffold where the germinative cells are introduced and aligned at the new site.

Here, the goal is to pluck a small part of the germinative cells to provide enough tissue for the formation of new follicles, while not weakening the original one.

The main problem with this method is that plucking usually yields hair with too few cells to effectively induce new hair follicles to form.

Multiplication process 2

 

Another form of hair multiplication involves plucking hairs from the beard or the scalp that are then implanted into the bald part of the scalp.

The idea here is that the germinative cells on the base of the hair follicle are highly likely to be pulled together with the follicle.

When the hair has been implanted, the cells will be able to regenerate and create a new follicle.

Examining the plucked hair via a microscope helps the doctor establish which hairs have the most stem cells and the ones that are more likely to regrow.

This procedure is referred to as “hair multiplication”, as the plucked follicles will regrow new hair, which can potentially offer an unlimited supply.

 

However, this technique usually has a problem in that when plucked. The cells adherent to the hair shaft don’t seem to play a major role in hair follicle growth.

Plus, the most important stem cells for hair growth, usually found around the bulge region of the follicle, often are not harvested to a significant degree.

Some researchers speculate that adding an extra-cellular matrix (ECM) with the aim of stimulating growth makes the plucked hairs much more likely to survive after they’re implanted. They may grow into fully developed hair.

However, this has been hard to document or prove in clinical trials.

The major limitation of using this new ECM-based technique is that most of the plucked hairs do not contain adequate germinative material to effectively stimulate new hair growth.

This means that only a small number of plucked hairs are actually useful in the transplant.

The other concern with this method is that a portion of the new hair is usually obtained from the skin around the recipient site instead of being solely from the transplanted hair follicle.

For this reason, we can only hope that the new hair, which contains cells from the donor as well as the recipient, will be resistant enough for the miniaturizing actions of DHT and that it won’t disappear over time.

Hair induction method (hair cloning)

 

Hair follicles present a major challenge when it comes to cloning.

This is because the follicles are usually very complex. It’s difficult to multiply them inside a test tube; too, since they are not whole organisms. They cannot grow on their own.

Luckily, a pair of clever scientists, Dr. Colin Jahoda and Dr. Amanda Reynolds, seem to be on their way towards solving the dilemma.

In a report titled Transgender Induction of Hair Follicles, these scientists have highlighted that dermal sheath cells found in the lower parts of the human hair follicle can be isolated from one person and directly injected into the skin of another to form new intact hair.

To stimulate the development of normal, full-terminal hair follicles, the implanted cells interact locally inside the skin of the recipient.

While this is not actual hair cloning, there’s a good chance that dermal sheath cells can be multiplied inside a petri dish and later injected into the skin in great numbers to create a full head of hair.

But this form of multiplication has not been achieved yet, so take this scenario with a grain of salt.

Nonetheless, it seems that this kind of hair “induction” method is the model that is most likely to work.

 

Hair cloning
Hair Cloning (Induction) Process

Hair induction: Notice

 

Interestingly, in the experiment, the donor cells actually came from a male while the recipient, a female, actually grew the hair.

This aspect highlights that donor cells can successfully be transferred from one person to another without being rejected. Even in cases where the recipient was not only of the opposite sex, but also had a significantly different genetic profile, repeated implantations didn’t produce the usual rejection responses.

This shows that dermal sheath cells usually have a special immune status, and that the lower part of the hair follicle is one of the “immunity privileged” sites of the human body.

Additionally, some evidence shows that the recipient’s skin can actually affect the look of the hair. Therefore, the final appearance of the patient is more likely to resemble the original hair of the bald person more closely than that of the inducer cells of the donor.

Hair Cloning Models

 

There are four main experimental techniques for cloning hair:

  1. Implanting Dermal Papillae Cells (DP cells) alone
  1. Placing the DP cells besides other miniaturized follicles
  1. Implanting keratinocytes-containing DP cells (Proto-hairs)
  1. Using a Matrix in Cell Implantation

 

However, though they are minor, there are a few safety concerns that the implanted cells can exhibit malignant growth or induce tumors themselves.

But once such obstacles are overcome, certain FDA requirementsto must be met before approval to guarantee effectiveness and safety. The process entails three formalized clinical tests and usually takes years.

Hair cloning is still a work in progress, and although there has been significant recent success – especially now that we have a working model of how it might be accomplished – there’s still much work to be done.

What Still Needs To Be Done In Hair Cloning

 

When cloning hair, we are still confronted with a number of problems.

1. First, we need to determine the most appropriate follicular components to use. The dermal sheath cells used in the Jahoda/Amanda experiment are difficult to isolate, and may not necessarily produce the best hair.

2. Second, the extracted cells must be cultured successfully outside the body.

3. Third, a cell matrix could be required to keep the cells aligned properly when they are growing.

Finally, the cells should be injected successfully into the scalp of the recipient in a way that they can consistently induce hair growth.

With cell implantation, there are no guarantees that the induced hair will look natural in terms of color, texture, or thickness, or that the hair will grow in the right direction.

This is unlike the conventional Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) procedure where intact follicular units are implanted into the scalp, oriented in the direction the surgeon intends the hair to grow.

To alleviate the problem, the induced hair might be used in the central part of the scalp for volume purposes, and complemented using the traditional FUE procedure to produce a natural appearance.

Nonetheless, it must be ascertained that induced hair follicles can actually grow long enough to create cosmetically significant hair.

Once the hair is shed as part of the normal hair cycle, there is no guaranteed that it will grow and cycle again.

Another major technical problem in hair cloning is that the cells in culture usually start differentiating as they multiply and degenerate. Also act like fibroblasts instead of hair.

Finding the ideal environment where the cells can thrive in a way that differentiates them in a hair-like state is a big challenge for researchers.

In fact, it seems to be the single largest obstacle keeping this form of hair-loss treatment therapy from coming to fruition. It’s quite similar to the problems encountered in cloning an entire organism, since the environment where the embryonic cells grow is crucial to their proper differentiation and survival.

When Will Hair Cloning Be Available?

 

Stem cell and organ cloning research still in its infancy.

And even though hair cloning sounds simple in theory, there are unexpected complications when it comes to any of the latest medical technologies.

Nevertheless, research continues and every day researchers get closer and closer to a successful cure for baldness and androgenic alopecia.

Conclusion

 

With hair cloning, a sample of the patient’s germinative hair follicle cells are multiplied in vitro (outside the body). Then re-implanted into the scalp in the hope that new hair follicles will grow from them, thereby creating new permanent hair.

This is a fascinating field. Not only due to the rapidly developing nature of the science of cloning hair. But also because hair cloning methods have huge potential to yield an effective treatment that “cures” common hair loss. Many physicians and scientists have been seeking this cure for decades.

Hair cloning is a term that encompasses many different sets of ideas on how laboratory techniques can be used to solve the problem of hair loss. However, there are technical differences between true hair cloning and the hair multiplication technique for treating baldness.

10 Early Signs Of Balding And How To Deal With It Immediatly

male pattern baldness

10 Early Signs Of Balding And How To Deal With It Immediatly

 

The main signs of balding in a man, and in certain cases women, is the loss natural color of the hair, full hand of hair after shampoo, scarring, skin lesions and the growth of dandruff.

As for people suffering from autoimmune disorders like alopecia areata, the first symptoms will be the loss of hair in unusual areas like above the ears, on their eyebrows, or at the backside of their head – places that male pattern baldness never affects.

As for male pattern loss, the loss and thinning of hair starts at the temple and crown before completely thinning out or falling out.

Balding, also known as alopecia, is where one starts losing hair from the body and often on the head.

This form of hair loss is often experienced by men and is commonly referred to as male pattern hair loss.

The causes of this hair loss are attributed to many factors.

However, as we have mentioned above, there are forms of balding that are associated with autoimmune disorders like alopecia areata and alopecia totalis, which is the most extreme with the victim losing all hair on their head and body.

What Causes Balding?

 

As mentioned above, hair loss can be brought about by many different factors.

These include fungal infections, aging, traumatic damage (where a person compulsively pulls their hair off), nutritional deficiencies, and/or chemotherapy or radiotherapy.

In 90% of cases, the main cause of balding is androgenic alopecia, wich means that balding was in your family before. In male hair loss it is caused by genetics and the male hormone DHT. In women it is still unknown

 

Generally, it will take about 15 to 25 years before a person suffering from male pattern hair loss to go bald. However, there are men who go bald in less than five years.

10 Key Signs Of Balding

 

Male pattern baldness is a very common hair loss condition that unfortunately afflicts over 2/3 of men throughout their lifetime.

Believe it or not, but this type of baldness can strike at a very young age. Sometimes people might begin to see signs of it as early as 18 years of age.

Because it is a genetic condition, it is much more likely that you will suffer from it if you have members of your family that have the same condition.

However, it is not true that it is only passed down from your mother’s side of the family.

Thus, if anyone in your family suffers from it on either side, you are at a much greater risk of getting it as well.

 

This type of baldness does not occur overnight. It is actually a process that typically happens throughout a long stretch of time where your hair follicles essentially stop regrowing hair.

Therefore, if you notice during a 1-month large clumps or a significant amount of hair

  • on your pillow when you wake up,
  • during a hair washing, shampooing
  • or on your brush after you brush your hair

you will want to visit a medical professional in order to discuss potential causes for it.

Typically, the pattern in which you lose your hair is indicative of the condition that you suffer from (if any).

There are a lot of different causes that could cause sudden and increased hair loss.

Therefore, just because you find hair on your pillow or you see hair coming out doesn’t necessarily mean you are suffering from baldness.

There are definitely other considerations that could come into play.  You should head to a medical professional to figure out what is going on.

However, there are clear warning signs that you might be suffering from the early stages of male pattern baldness. Below, we will be going over some of them.

Early Warning Signs Of Male Pattern Baldness

 

The problem with men suffering from male pattern baldness is that their hair eventually stops growing back.

It’s not about losing the hair, but about the hair follicles shrinking. After some time, the hair that grows out from the shrinking follicles becomes thin before disappearing altogether.

balding process hair loss scheme1

If you’re losing large chunks of your hair it isn’t a sign of Androgenic Alopecia, but it could be a sign of other types of alopecia.

Men that do in fact suffer from this type of baldness start to lose their hair in a pattern.

The first signs will generally include a noticeable receding hairline, which is gradual, but nonetheless will become obvious with time.

Male pattern hair loss does have a variety of other symptoms that may not exactly be textbook, but can be easy to recognize.

Apart from a receding hairline, thinning or receding hair from the top of the scalp can also be an indicator of permanent hair loss.

The way to know for sure if you’re suffering from male pattern hair loss is to take a look at your scalp.

This type of hair loss will not affect the sides or the back of your scalp. It is almost certain that you do suffer from male pattern hair loss if the only place you notice hair loss is near or on the top of your head.

 

The Standard Balding Process

 

Hair follicles, which are tiny pouches under the skin, are responsible for creating hair.

Each follicle grows a hair for about 3 years. When the 3 years are over, the hair is shed and a new one is grown.

In the case of male pattern hair loss, the affected scalp follicles gradually grow smaller.

 

As they shrink, the new hair that grows from the follicle is thinner than the last one.

 

At the same time, the follicle’s hair growth cycle grows shorter and hairs are grown and shed in a lesser time frame than the previous ones.

 

With time, all that is left is a very small follicle and only a thin hair stump that doesn’t even make it out to the surface.

Hair cycle and balding

List Of 10 Key Signs Of Balding:

1. Receding Hairline

Male pattern baldness typically begins at the hairline.

During the initial phase, your hair will begin to thin at the temples and the front of your hairline.

 

As time goes on, your hairline will continue to shrink and shrink until you are left with somewhat of a horseshoe shape on your forehead.

2. Thinning Of Crown Area

Another common sign that you are suffering from this type of baldness is if you have a lot of thining in the crown area of your head.

For a lot of people, this is actually the first place they notice that they are suffering from this condition.

 

Balding typically affects your head in a specific zone.

Therefore, you are likely going to be able to notice this type of thinning much easier.

3. Hair Gets Curly

While this is not necessarily going to occur to every single man that suffers from male pattern baldness, it is a common effect that male pattern baldness is affecting you.

This is when curly hair begins to show near the hairline on the neck and right over the ears.

This usually occurs when the crown begins to thin out and recess.

4. Loss Of Hair On The Top

Another sign that you are suffering from male pattern baldness can be seen when you are beginning to lose the hair on the top of your head.

A lot of men that suffer from this type of baldness end up suffering from significant hair loss on the top portion of their heads which leads only the sides and the back with hair.

If you notice that you are losing hair in specific patches and not just on the top portion of your head, you might be experiencing another type of problem that could be causing your hair to fall out.

Male pattern baldness typically affects the center and top portion of one’s head.

5. You Are Getting Older

When we age, our hair gets much thinner naturally.

The numbers dictate that around half of men over the age of 50 will have experienced around 50% hair loss.

Therefore, preventative measures must be taken in order to prevent this much hair loss if you feel as though you are headed down the same path.

While age is a very key factor to know and understand, if your hair is thinning out at a feverish pace, you might be dealing with balding.

6. Your Partings Are Getting Wider

One of the main things that you should be looking out for is your partings.

While some might not be able to notice if their hair is thinning out until it’s too late, a lot of people are going to be familiar with the way they part their hair.

Thus, if your hair is thinning out where you part it, you are going to be much more likely to notice it.

As a result, if your hair is parting wider or you notice major structural changes in the way your hair parts, you know that you are dealing with balding.

7. Dandruff

While getting dandruff suddenly doesn’t mean you are necessarily dealing with balding itself, it does mean that there is something going on with your scalp and hair.

Dandruff is a common sign that you are dealing with balding because it typically causes your scalp to go through serious changes which can alter the hydration and the production of oil in your scalp.

Thus, if you notice that you are beginning to suffer from dandruff all of the sudden, you might want to consider getting checked out by a professional that might be able to get to the root of what is happening to your hair.

8. Head Sensitivity

Another common sign that you are balding is if you notice any significant changes to the sensitivity that you might have to specific elements.

If you step out in either hot or cold weather, you should pay close attention to how your head feels.

If your head used to get extremely hot in the summer and it doesn’t feel as hot anymore, you might be dealing with hair thinning.

Likewise, if you notice that you are dealing with much more sunburn when you go out into the sun, you are likely losing a significant amount of hair that used to protect your scalp.

You will be able to identify if your scalp is being overly exposed to the sun if you did this.

9. Stop Self Inflicted Hair Loss.

When it comes to losing hair, you want to be sure that you are not causing it directly. There are actually a lot of different things that you could be doing in order to cause your hair to fall out and for you to lose hair in general. To put it simply, you will not want to abuse your hair in any way possible. A lot of people abuse their hair every single day by using extremely hot blow dryers or even hair straighteners. These tools can really cause significant damage to your hair follicles because your hair is not meant to be put through that type of physical stress. Also, hair that is put up too tightly can actually slowly get pulled from their roots.

10. Other Conditions.

Another major thing that you are going to want to keep an eye out for is other major conditions that could directly relate to problems with balding. For instance, if you notice that you are quickly gaining weight, you could be dealing with a thyroid problem that could end up causing hair loss in individuals. Also, you might be dealing with an autoimmune system disorder where your body is targeting your own hair follicles. Another problem that could be causing your hair loss is malnutrition. Lastly, you want to be sure that you are not suffering from ringworm which can cause your hair to fall out.

As you can see, there are plenty of different ways to tell if you are suffering from any type of baldness condition.

By looking and being proactive about it, you should be able to slow down the process significantly to the point where you are going to be able to minimize the negative effects of balding.

You want to be sure to look at all of the key signs that you are balding to ensure that none of them are affecting you and if they are, you will want to be sure to figure out whether or not it is because you are going through a balding process.

By visiting a registered health care professional, you should be able to tell whether or not any specific problem is associated with balding or if you are simply going through another health condition that is causing you to lose hair as a side effect or side problem associated with it.

There are plenty of reasons you can lose hair at a significant rate. Therefore, you want to be sure that you are dealing with male pattern baldness if you are losing a significant number of hair in a short period of time.

That way, you can figure out what to do about it.

 

 

Who Experiences Male Pattern Hair Loss?

 

Almost all men experience some form of hair loss by their 60’s. However, the time or age at which hair loss starts is not constant. Research shows that out of every ten men, about three will start experiencing hair loss by the time they are 30 years. Interestingly, about half of all the men in their 50’s exhibit some significant balding.

 

Can Balding Be Treated?

 

Male pattern hair loss is treatable. There are medications that will help balance out the hormones that affect hair growth. By using such medication (Propecia), the patient’s follicles are given a new lease of life and can easily grow back to their normal size; allowing for the normal growth of hair. Nonetheless, most of these medications will take some time before the results desired can be achieved.

If you are experiencing any form of hair loss, it is important that you visit your doctor or dermatologist for tests and for more advice on how to handle or work with the condition.

 

Hair loss in men that is the result of an underlying cause of hair follicle vulnerability is called male pattern baldness and is also known as Androgenic alopecia. This is usually the most common type of loss of hair, and it will affect nearly 70% if men at some time during their life.Commonly, men will have the recession of hair at their temples and with vertex balding, or baldness that occurs at the crown of the head Is caused by the DHT hormone increasing, but it has been established that baldness can in fact be genetic. Most commonly, male pattern baldness affects men between the age ranges of 25 to 35, but in some extreme cases, it can start as early as the age of 20.
