Solutions to Thinning Hair & Hair Loss in Men

Solutions to Thinning Hair & Hair Loss in Men

According to the American Hair Loss Association, as many as two-thirds of US men will notice some hair loss by the time they are just 30 years old. At age 50, up to 85% experience significantly thinning hair and extensive hair loss. At 18|8 Fine Men’s Salon in Barrington, we know that these figures represent more than just numbers. They represent a struggle almost universally experienced by men. Fortunately, there are methods available today that can help affected men reverse hair loss and increase hair growth.

Causes of Thinning Hair

Male Pattern Baldness is the most common cause of hair loss among men. This genetic form of hair loss occurs when hormonal changes in the body cause hair follicles to shrink. Hair growth slows significantly over time, then ceases completely and the hair begins to fall out. Other potential causes of hair loss include:

  • Hypothyroidism
  • Autoimmune disease
  • Chemotherapy
  • Vitamin and mineral deficiencies
  • Infection
  • Certain medications

Even severe stress can greatly contribute to hair loss.

Fighting the Problem

With such a significant issue affecting so many men around the world, it isn’t surprising that many scientific advances have been made to find solutions to the problem. Even so, most treatments still work best in the early stages of thinning.  In the first 10 or 15 years of shedding, follicles retain their potential.  After 15 or 20 years, however, fewer have that potential.

While consumers must be wary of many sham hair loss products on the market, there are proven solutions to thinning hair.  High performance hair stimulating shampoos and conditioners equipped with vitamins and minerals to nourish follicles and promote scalp vitality are now available.  Low Level Laser Therapy has been clinically proven to reverse hair loss by stimulating follicles and increasing blood circulation with greater effectiveness and without the side effects of minoxidil and rogaine.  For advanced cases of hair loss, hair restoration surgery may be the answer.
