No one wants to look in the mirror and see a receding hairline or thinning at the crown. It affects a man’s self-confidence and perception of self. There are a number of reasons for male hair loss, with the following being the most common.
While there’s no way to change a person’s genetic makeup, it does provide a clue as to who may experience hair loss. It’s not just men that pass their genes to their offspring. Women supply half those genes and they also experience hair loss.
The chances that an individual will experience hair loss is greater if their father did, but it also depends on the genes inherited from both parents. There are individuals that experience complete hair loss, while their father retained a full head of hair.
As men age, hormone levels begin to decline. Those changes affect the rate of growth, life cycle of each hair, and shrinks hair follicles. The result is thinning and hair loss as strands aren’t replaced as quickly or not at all. Some men are more sensitive to hormonal changes than others.
Cancer treatments are a well-known cause of hair loss. There are some surprising medical conditions that can also affect hair loss. They include cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, gout and arthritis. Those with lupus, diabetes and depression are at a higher risk of hair loss. The hair loss of alopecia areata is an immune system condition that attacks hair follicles.
Many medications have the potential for hair loss. Some of the most common are those to lower cholesterol, blood thinners, beta-blockers, non-steroid anti-inflammatories, and antidepressants. Thyroid medications and steroids can also affect hair loss.
High levels of sustained stress impact the body in a variety of ways and that includes hair loss and thinning. Stress results in the release of fight or flight hormones within the body, which can cause hair follicles to halt their natural growth cycle.
