Male hair loss
There are a number of reasons why bald patches might be appearing or you’ve spotted hair thinning, but the most common cause for men is male pattern baldness, properly known as androgenetic alopecia. This progressive, hereditary type of hair loss is permanent if not addressed – and the earlier you take action to prevent hair loss, the more hair you’ll be able to save.
Signs you might be suffering from male pattern baldness often start with a noticeable change in the hairline – it might begin at the temples, with gradual thinning rather than total hair loss, or your hairline might become a more pronounced v-shape. Alternatively, you may experience diffuse thinning all over so compare photos from a couple of years ago.
If you’ve noticed any changes to your locks, there are a number of steps you can take to prevent further damage to your follicles and encourage regrowth so seek treatment as soon as possible. And, even if your hair loss is now quite marked, it’s never too late to get expert advice on what solutions are available.
Female hair loss
Hair shedding is totally normal – on average we lose approximately 80 strands a day – and nothing to be concerned about. But what if you start seeing more hair clogging up your drain or on your pillow when you wake up in the morning? There are a number of potential causes of female hair loss and the first step is to see an expert to pinpoint the exact reason and recommend possible solutions.
Telogen effluvium is hair loss that is caused by a specific trigger, such as an underlying illness, hormonal imbalance, a nutritional deficiency, severe stress or extreme dieting. The good news is that it is typically temporary and resolves itself when the trigger is identified and eliminated.
However, one of the most common causes of female hair loss, particularly in older women, is genetic. Androgenetic alopecia, known as male pattern baldness in men, is a hereditary, progressive type of hair loss. Women don’t typically see a receding hairline, but instead with experience hair thinning across the scalp and a widening parting. Female hair loss can be treated but the type of therapy or combination of treatments will often depend on the amount of hair loss and other factors. If you’re worried about female hair loss, seek expert advice and help as soon as possible for the best results.
