Male Pattern baldness accounts for 95% of hair loss in men. By age 35, two-thirds of men will have some degree of hair loss and by age 50 around 85% of men have significantly thinning hair.
For some men, (approximately 25%) can start this process before they reach 21.
Hair loss in inevitable, but there are ways to energise the scalp and encourage hair growth + thicker hair. As well as slowing down the balding/thinning process.
In this week’s edition of #BarberTalk by New York Barbers, we are going to explain how you can do this.
Male Pattern Baldness is the most common form of balding and thinning hair in men and is also known as inherited male pattern baldness and androgenetic alopecia.
The hair follicles become sensitive to a male hormone called dihydrotestosterone (DHT). This causes changes in the hair follicle, resulting in:
fewer hairs emerging from each follicle each
hair becoming finer
the growth phase of each hair gradually becoming shorter, so that each hair exists for a shorter time
So the hair becomes progressively shorter and finer, and can eventually stop growing altogether, resulting in baldness.
What is the easiest thing to do? The easiest thing to do is to accept it and keep your hair buzzed short or completely bald.
However, for those that want to try and keep their hair while they still have some, there is no magic product that will give you a full head or super thick hair again (unless you get a really good hair transplant) but there are ways you can manage it, stimulate hair growth and slow down the thinning/balding process.
