What are the Causes of Hair Loss in Men?
Hair loss in men
Hair loss is inevitable with aging. Hair loss in some people (especially men) starts at a younger age, which may be scary for some people. But more scary than premature hair loss which is sudden hair loss! It means that a person who did not have any problem in terms of hair loss until some time ago, in a short period suddenly loses a part or all of his hair.
In general, daily shedding of up to 100 hairs is considered normal in humans. This hair loss mostly happens when combing hair, bathing, or sleeping.
The most common causes of sudden hair loss
In many cases, the reason for hair loss in young or middle-aged adults is what is called “androgenic alopecia” or male pattern baldness. Research shows that today about 20% of men suffer from this type of hair loss in their youth. It is interesting to know that this statistic reaches 40% among men who are in their fourth decade of life and more than 50% among men who are in their fifth decade of life. There are many reasons for this type of hair loss, but after puberty in boys, usually, the hair on their heads gradually thins. For this reason, hair follicles are more ready to fall older. Of course, with measures and techniques, it is possible to prevent hair loss in men to a large extent (including hair loss treatment with minoxidil or hair loss treatment with medicinal plants) and in cases where the loss is severe, depending on the doctor’s diagnosis, implantation methods Hair or hair restoration can fix this supply and prevent it.
So far, three reasons for male pattern baldness and hair loss have been identified, which are:
In many cases, male pattern baldness is hereditary and its gene is passed on from one of the parents. However, it has not yet been discovered how these genes are passed from one generation to another. So it is possible for two brothers, one of them will suffer from this problem in adulthood and the other will not lose his hair. Some people may carry this gene, but they do not experience hair loss or baldness.
The interesting point is that contrary to what many people think, men who inherit the hair loss gene from their mother are more prone to hair loss than men who inherit this gene from their father.
Of course, pay attention to this important point that, contrary to many rumors that have spread among people, just having the hair loss gene alone cannot be the cause of severe hair loss and baldness, but other influential factors such as increasing age and hormones or Lack of hygiene and neglect of hair are also very effective in this field, and genes can only provide the basis for more hair loss. Currently, the best method to solve the problem of those who have this gene is hair transplant methods (including Sut hair transplant).
Dihydrotestosterone (Dihydrotestosterone) or DHT is one of the hormones that is related to testosterone and causes hair loss and in some cases baldness in men. This hormone is released when testosterone reacts with an enzyme called 5 alpha-reductase.
Hair follicles become thinner when DHT is secreted and over time the hair shaft becomes weaker and smaller. Later, over time, many of these hair strands stop growing. In many cases, men notice that their hair loss is severe when more than half of the hair follicles on the head have thinned or fallen under the influence of DHT.
Remember that DHT hormone does not affect hair follicles suddenly and overnight, but its effect on hair follicles and the beginning of hair loss happens over time. In this context, the effectiveness of the relevant hormone depends on having the hair loss gene and also the age of the person. Those who have this gene usually lose their hair before the age of 30, while in other men, this may happen at the age of 30 or even 40.
In general, it can be said that for men who suffer from male pattern baldness or androgenic alopecia, their hair loss rate decreases or increases in different periods, and even in certain periods, this loss may stop for a while. Male hair loss statistics in different countries show that androgenic alopecia is the cause of most hair loss in men around the world, and hair transplantation is considered the best treatment for these people.
In general, it can be concluded that men who have the androgenic alopecia gene are more prone to hair loss, and today many people who refer to hair transplant clinics belong to this category. But this does not mean that other men do not suffer from hair loss and baldness and are safe from this problem! Rather, all young men can use different methods to help their hair grow thicker.
It is important to mention here that there are rumors and some notions of people who suffer from hair loss and want to use hair transplants on their heads. We check:
Poor blood flow
Some think that the amount of blood circulation in the scalp is the determining factor in the growth of hair follicles, and any disturbance in it will quickly cause hair loss. If the blood flow decreases, some hair follicles may fall out for a while, but this often does not become severe, and if the only cause of hair loss in men was blood clots, those who have hair transplants It was possible, the transplanted hairs did not grow in the front part of the head (the area receiving the seizures).
Using a hat
Wearing normal hats or helmets in different seasons of the year does not normally cause hair loss. Unfortunately, since many people who had this problem and visited hair transplant clinics used hats, many people mistakenly thought that covering their head with a hat was the cause of their hair loss. If, on the contrary, wearing a hat can even be beneficial for the health of the skin and hair, especially the use of sun hats in the summer.
Some people think that the only reason for men’s hair loss is lack of hygiene. If this idea is completely wrong, and if it were so, all the people who lived in the poor countries of the world and the slums, would probably suffer from hair loss and baldness. Simply using different shampoos and soaps to wash the skin and scalp cannot help the growth of hair strands. On the contrary, it is said that since the use of shampoos in men and women, the number of baldness and hair loss has also increased.
Drying hair with a hair dryer is not something that alone causes hair loss and thus the need for hair transplantation. Although it is often recommended to dry the hair at a mild temperature after bathing, and if a person dries the hair at a hot air temperature, it will damage the hair, and many strands of hair may fall out, this issue in cases happens a little and using a hair dryer with a mild temperature cannot by itself cause thinning or weakening of the hair.
Stress and nervous tension bother many people these days, and many mistakenly think that stress alone can cause hair loss and baldness in men. If this is not true stress may lead to aggravation of hair loss, but it is not the only cause of baldness and hair loss. Rather, as mentioned earlier, in people who have inherited hair loss genes or are old, stress in the short term may lead to a type of hair loss called “effluvium”, but this type of hair loss is specific It is not men and it is not permanent either.
