The Best Hair Loss Remedies.

Updated on May 13, 2018

Men's Health Problems

Hair loss is common amongst men, men can go bald at any age; some men start losing hair as young as 17. Hair restoration products are big business and hair transplants are becoming more accessible with prices coming down year on year.

Our hair can start to recede at any age, mainly from the temples and the crown of the head.

For a small minority of men this can start in their teenage years, but for the majority of men hair loss is delayed until their late 20s and early 30s.

A small proportion of men don't worry about hair loss; many others, however, become emotionally distressed by losing hair and suffer low self-esteem, lose self-confidence and even fall into depression.


Baldy Men

Women love baldy men, apparently it makes men look macho. Being a baldy myself this is a real bonus.

On a serious note premature hair loss is a big problem for men, especially younger men.

In this article we will explore the reasons behind losing your hair, over the counter hair replacement treatments and natural hair restoration remedies.

The first explanation I would like to offer is why hair thins or falls out as part of the natural human process.

Male baldness can be inherited, therefore if family members are bald then you are more susceptible to early hair loss. Hair loss can occur due to having too much of a chemical called dihydrotestosterone, or DHT.

An excess of DHT causes the hair follicles to make thinner and thinner hair until they eventually stop producing hair.

Hair loss- Fact and Fiction

Medical Causes of Hair Loss

All premature hair loss in men is not down to ageing or hereditary factors, there are a number of medical conditions that could be behind sudden hair loss such as:

  • An Iron Deficiency
  • Anemia
  • Under Active Thyroid
  • Scalp Infections
  • Stress and Anxiety
  • Reaction to prescription medication

If you have suffered sudden hair loss or are in any way worried about losing your hair; you should seek professional medical advice before the problem escalates.

Hair Restoration, Hair Replacement and Hair Transplant

There are many "apparently" successful surgical and non surgical procedures available to restore your hair.

Predominately these procedures are performed by private clinics; all who claim to be the answer to your hair loss prayers. I guess it is a matter of interpretation of what successful hair replacement means but anything that helps to restore your self esteem is fine by me.

I am sure there are some very happy customers out there and I would not attempt to besmirch anyone or any claims made but in my opinion the replacement results I have seen honestly look unatural at best and down right stupid at worst.

I certainly am not going to dismiss these procedures as I am not qualified, I am sure some will be very happy with the results and in the interest of fairness I have provided a video below that seems to be a successul outcome.

Wearing a Wig

There used to be a stigma to wearing a wig, mainly because they were ill fitting, styled badly and looked so out of place that your eyes were drawn to them. However times changed as consumers became more demanding, hair substitutes were found and companies recognised there was a profit to be made.

Wigs can be used after medical treatment or for cosmetic purposes, regardless of the reason the main consideration nowadays seems to be style and natural look, wig designers have responded to this demand and created a wig for everyone.

 

Natural and Chemical Hair Replacement Remedies

We have all seen the adverts for natural hair replacement remedies, I have even seen some really wacky hair products too.

However in order to grow healthy hair; certain chemicals and nutrients need to be present in our bodies and that is were natural hair growth products come in. By providing your body with the ingredients to grow hair you increase your chances of actually growing more hair; simple really.

There are of course many charlatans waiting to pray on desperate baldies like myself so my advice is always buy from a reputable company and always check the ingredients to make sure you are not allergic to them.

I would just like to say, whatever way you choose to solve your hair loss problem; I wish you the very best of luck. I have decided to go baldy gracefully and let my body take it's natural course.
