Signs You Need a Hair Loss Solution
You May Need a Permanent Hair Loss Solution
Has this ever happened to you? You’re brushing or combing your hair and you notice your hair isn’t as thick as it used to be. Do you look in the mirror and notice patchy spots or a receding hairline? You may not want to admit it, but the writing is on the wall. You’re experiencing hair loss and starting to go bald.
This can be an absolutely devastating discovery, especially for men who experience hair loss in their early 20s. Unfortunately, hair loss is an extremely common affliction and causes mental and physical hardships for men the world over. While you may be less than thrilled with the realization that you’re losing your hair, it’s important to remember that you do have options.
Why is This Happening?
Hair loss and male pattern baldness can affect the scalp exclusively, and sometimes one’s entire body. The loss of hair can most commonly be attributed to genes and hereditary factors. Additionally, hormonal changes, medical conditions, and medications can lead to or exacerbate one’s hair loss. Surprisingly, it can even result from environmental factors and exposure to stressful situations. Either way, anyone young or old can experience hair loss. And that might include you.
Whether your hair loss is advancing slowly, or you’re losing your hair a faster pace, permanent hair loss solutions are available. If you’re starting to feel like hats and comb-overs just aren’t cutting it anymore, you may be in need of a permanent hair loss solution. But how can you tell? Check out this list to see if you may be in need of a permanent hair loss solution.
The most common sign that you need a permanent hair loss solution is thinning hair. As you get older, you may notice that your hair seems to thin out over time. It isn’t regrowing or regenerating as fast as it used to. Additionally, you may even notice streaks as you brush or comb through it. In men, hair often begins to recede from the forehead in a line that resembles the letter M. This is your scalp beginning to show.
As your hair thins, more and more of your scalp comes through. Many men try to use hair regrowth products like Rogaine (Minoxidil), Proscar (Finasteride), and even supplements to treat hair loss. However, if these products don’t seem to be helping and the hair doesn’t grow back or thicken up, you may find that a permanent hair loss solution like FUT or FUE hair transplantation is in your best interest.
Circular or Patchy Baldness
Patchy hair loss is also referred to as alopecia, of which there are many variations. These small patches generally form in ovals or circles in the area where hair has begun to thin. Some hair loss sufferers experience smooth, coin-sized bald spots. Additionally, patchy baldness sufferers may experience an itchy scalp or sensitivity in these areas as well. This type of hair loss usually affects just the scalp, but it sometimes also occurs in beards or eyebrows as well. In some cases, your skin may become itchy or painful before the hair falls out.
A physical or emotional shock can cause hair to loosen as well. Handfuls of hair may come out when combing or washing your hair or even after gentle tugging. This is also common after certain procedures like bariatric sleeve surgery and gastric bypass. While hair normally grows back after bariatric surgery, some unfortunate patients may experience these symptoms more severely. Some may need to look for permanent hair loss solutions.
If you suffer from alopecia or you’re worried that your patchy baldness could be caused by it, it’s important to schedule a consultation with a hair restoration professional at Best Hair Transplant. Our friendly knowledgeable staff will be happy to discuss your hair restoration options.
A Receding Hairline
Receding hairlines have two main causes: genetics and age. You may have noticed that your hairline is receding faster and faster each year. Naturally, this will become a concern for you. You may even be trying to grow your hair out longer to cover this issue. However, if your combover is getting to the point where the wind is your worst enemy, finding a professional to help you with permanent hair loss solutions is the way to go.
