Hair loss among men is a concern
that is familiar even to those living many years ago. In the ancient times, men

of it represented a man's powerlessness. Many of the ancient leaders then, took
great measures to prevent hair loss by creating their own brand of hair loss
Even while many men don't admit it, hair loss is something they secretly wish do
not happen to them. The loss of hair not only makes one feel less presentable;
it is also identified with aging or growing old. Because it could be hereditary,
there is no known cure for hair loss. There are, however, many hair loss
products and hair loss treatments one can consider, to at least slow down the
Before anyone else tries the medical or surgical route for hair loss treatment,
a couple of lifestyle and grooming changes may be in order. Since hair loss
could be inevitable, to try and alter someone's lifestyle and preference might
help a person change his outlook on hair loss. Below are some suggestions:
- Focus on other aspects of your look. There are plenty of grooming products
available in the market today. These products, and even some special treatments,
are not just for women’s use, as some target the male population. Using these
products to emphasize, for instance, the eyes or the lips, will draw attention
away from the thinning hair. Consult an expert before you try the products
- Change your hairstyle to make the most of what you have. You could opt for a
shorter hair or that shaved and clean-cut look. People cannot tell the
difference if you are balding or just going with the trend.
- Change the way you dress. Learn to dress sharply. It gives the impression of
confidence and makes your appearance a lot more pleasing. Experiment with
wearing a hat and try to incorporate that with your whole look.

treatments: medical or surgical.
- Finasteride is an inhibitor that blocks and prevents hormones from turning
into DHT or dihydrotestosterone. DHT causes hairloss. Finasteride is an
ingredient found in two popular hair loss products today: Proscar and Propecia.
These are drugs meant to treat prostate problems but studies have proven that
its effect helps reverse hair loss. It takes a while for the drug to work, and
results should be seen after three months or so.
- Minoxidil is a topical applied to the bald spot everyday. It is an
ingredient originally meant to cure high blood pressure but was found to have
been effective at reducing hair loss to about 25%. Minoxidil is found in Rogaine
and other topical hair loss products.
- Hair transplants is a cosmetic surgery procedure. Small plugs of hair are
transferred from the back to the bald spots and the procedure has to take a
couple of weeks for the results to show.
- Scalp reduction is another surgical procedure. It is done by removing the
loose scalp skin out and pulling hair from the sides to the bald spot. The
procedure is ideal for men with bald spots near the forehead.
- Laser therapy is a year long program that involves a series of therapy using
laser. It is believed to have therapeutic effects, as the laser is able to
breakdown DHT, thus preventing hair loss. However this is a fairly new procedure
and its long-term effects are still being researched to this day.
