It’s very frustrating to see your hair falling especially if you are in your late teens and early twenties. You can deal with other hair problems such as dandruff or dryness but when it comes to hair fall there is a big question mark.
Usually somewhere around 100 hair strands fall of daily and they are replaced by new ones. But the main problem starts when this replacement does not happen. Each and every hair strand goes though a cycle.
There can be a lots of things which can cause this cycle to go haywire and eventually lead to hair loss in men. Hormones, lack of proper nutrients, stress, genetics, etc, but the most dangerous of them all is the genetically induced hair loss. Because once it sets in and nothing is done about it then it becomes really late to try all possible cheaper therapy options.
According to surveys done across the world, approximately 25% of men are turning bald by 30. Increasing number of men are experiencing hair loss in their late teens. But one big mistake commonly done by majority of men is to overlook the excess hair fall happening initially. Anything wrong when happens in our body, it has a way telling things and in that way we take care by understanding and treating major symptoms. But many of us fail to understand that hair fall can also be a sign to tell that something is wrong inside our body.
Understanding why the hair fall is happening is very important as it might give an early important insight like, a deficiency of vitamins or proteins or may be even an infection to the skin which holds the hair follicles.
Doing this has two major advantages:
- You have enough time to arrest the hair fall (whatever may be the reason)
- The cost of required treatment is very low
As the famous saying goes,” A stitch in time saves nine”, it stands very much true for treating hair loss in men. Hair loss in men can be controlled much better if the cause is understood at the earliest. If you feel you are losing more hair than usual or if you feel that you have some less dense hair on a particular part on your head you should immediately consult a trichologist or at least your family physician without wasting any further time.
In my further blogs I will try to cover more on hair care and treatment options that are available and when to go for them.
