Men are more prone to lose hair before aging, especially on the crown, all over or around their temples alone. Whatever the type of loss of hair you are facing, the cause can be traced to the sensitivity of hormones alone. We try to explain the hair loss causes, especially in men, and some ways to treat it.
Hair loss is a problem brought forth by the hair follicles, the roots of hair growth. Hair loss occurs due to sensitivity to the male hormone, dihydrotestosterone (DHT), resulting from testosterone, which makes all males to have DHT in some quantity.
When DHT reacts with hair follicles, because of the sensitivity, DHT tends to attach to the follicles, shrinking them, and finally no hair growth can be seen in that place. Since this is a process which happens over a long period of time, you can neither reverse nor stop it.
None of your fault
If you are sensitive to DHT, it is not your fault. It is a hereditary problem. So there is nothing you can do about it. If your parents and grandparents had lost hair due to DHT sensitivity, you may also lose it.
Stop the process
When you notice that there is premature hair fall, you have already taken the first step. You notice excessive hair on your pillows or bath tubs, indicating you are losing hair.
Now is the time for all good people to take action to halt the DHT sensitivity. If you can halt this, there are better chances for re-growth of hair.
All males are prone to have DHT because it is a by product of male hormone testosterone. Hence it is predominantly men who witness premature thinning of hair, which finally develops into baldness.
This is something beyond individual action or reversal. All that you can do is to reduce the sensitivity to DHT through natural herbs and cures, as chemical preparation may cause more complications.
When you cannot tackle the sensitivity problem, you may have to go for hair implants, which is a long drawn and expensive processes, and which may, after all the waiting, not bring hair which is nearer to normal hair.
