Men’s Hair Loss
Welcome to the Men’s Guide. There are 4 steps to this guide. It is quick and straight forward. When you’re finished, you should know exactly which treatments you need.
Pattern hair loss in men is not a result of stress, wearing that baseball cap every day, or that sweet ponytail you had in your wild years. The male version is called “Androgenic Alopecia” for a reason. Its the result of Hormones (Androgens) and a Genetic Predisposition. “Andro-Genetic”. Simply put, you’re losing hair because you are genetically-predisposed to. Your follicles have been programmed to become sensitive to the changing hormonal activity in your scalp. When this happens your body begins to reject them.
What is the significance of this?
Only three types of treatments are going to work: Treatments that address the hormonal problem. Treatments that stimulate growth. And anti-inflammatories.
Antiandrogens. These primarily prevent further hair loss, and stop the underlying cause of thinning hair. Antiandrogen Treatments >
Growth Stimulants. These work to generate new hairs, and bring dormant follicles back into growth-phase. Hair Growth Stimulants >
Anti-inflammatories. These calm the scalp, and eliminate the inflammation that makes thinning hair much worse. Anti-inflammatories >
When you hear about a new treatment – the only thing that matters is the ingredients. And the data supporting them. Always get the ingredients list, and question whether there are studies supporting them. Since you probably aren’t a scientist, we’ve done the work for you. We only present the treatments that have clinical backing or scientific proof. And if you choose, you can even get them in our Product Center.
Here’s the general rule: hair can be thickened anywhere it’s still growing. Therefore a hair loss treatment regimen is worth pursuing for all types of hair loss. Hair Transplants can be considered if you have tried a treatment regimen for a solid 2 years without results. The real challenge is deciding which treatments will best meet your needs, and optimize your chances for success. First, we will cover the causes, and types. Then we will present product comparisons and reviews, to help you make a decision.
Hair loss treatment is best viewed as a gradually increasing process. In other words: start small, and build on your regimen. It’s important to pace yourself, as you’ll want to maintain your results for decades. Additionally, a smaller regimen is less costly and easier to maintain. Just like you need to brush every day to avoid tooth decay, you must now begin using treatments to avoid “hair decay”. Legitimate treatments need a minimum of 1 year to really start working. Optimal results at around 2 years, and then maintenance from there forward.
