A lot of men simply assume that they will one day go bald. This may be because they have seen their male relatives lose hair. It may also be because they noticed their hairline receding from a fairly young age. While hair loss in men is certainly common, it never has to be permanent. At Custom Design Hair, we’ve helped many men regain their look and their self-confidence. We’re pleased to offer a range of male hair loss solutions, including options that fit all goals, lifestyles, and budgets.
It can be helpful to explore the causes of male hair loss, and to get a better sense of why your hair is thinning. That’s something our stylists can help you determine. When you join us in our Rogers, AR studio for a FREE hair loss consultation, we’ll provide a brief and non-invasive scalp analysis, which can be useful for determining some potential male hair loss reasons. In turn, that information helps us to better customize the solutions we offer.
Several causes of male baldness exist, and the most common by far is male pattern hair loss—or as it’s more formally known, androgenetic alopecia. This is a condition caused by DHT, a testosterone byproduct that can prevent the follicles from doing their job. This condition causes new hair growth to get smaller and smaller, and ultimately to disappear. More than 90 percent of all male hair loss cases have androgenetic alopecia at their core.
With that said, there are also a number of other possibilities. Some men have either alopecia totalis or alopecia universalis, both of which can cause hair loss not just on the scalp but across the whole body. These conditions are rare, but they do occur, and they can cause total baldness.
Other men may lose their hair due to anxiety disorders, and in particular trichotillomania. This is a condition marked by the compulsive pulling or twisting of hair. Over time, it can cause scarring to the follicles, meaning no new hair growth is possible without a clinical intervention.
There are a number of other medical conditions that can lead to male hair loss. Cancer treatments, including both chemotherapy and radiation, can often result in the loss of hair. There are also many medications for which hair loss is a primary side effect.
Lifestyle factors are also important to consider. Men who wear their hair in tight ponytails or in “man buns” run a risk of traction alopecia, a condition where the hair is pulled with such force that it causes scarring to the follicles. Again, the result may be permanent hair loss. Inadequate nutrition may also be a contributing factor to male hair loss.
