Your Guide to Hair Loss
Shedding some hair is natural; it is normal to shed in the range of 50 to 100 strands per day. If you start losing more, or you see that your hairline is changing, it’s time to take notice. One of the significant concerns for men is thinning hair and a receding hairline. Hair loss can be caused by various factors, including genetics, poor nutrition, stress, or as a side effect of some medications. Thick, healthy hair is admired in our culture – it is no wonder that stress increases when hair loss begins.
Types of hair loss
Men vary in how they lose their hair. DNA plays a significant role in hair loss, the rate of shedding, and the type of balding. If you are experiencing hair loss, it is crucial to recognize the source.
Receding hairline—A receding hairline is often the first sign of hair loss. Rather than losing hair evenly, most men start to thin out on the left and right sides of the upper hairline, creating a horseshoe pattern.
Thinning at the crown—This type of balding is widespread in men. The hair gradually disappears from the crown and frontal scalp. Unfortunately, because of the location, you may not notice the initial signs of balding until significant hair is lost on top.
Diffuse thinning—This type of hair loss is not in just one area of the scalp. Diffuse thinning means that hair is disappearing from all over the scalp. It is thinning at a steady rate, often affecting women.
If your hair is changing, don’t panic yet; hair loss doesn’t happen overnight. Fortunately, several safe and effective treatments can prevent or slow the early stages of hair loss.

When treating hair loss, skill, and experience matter.
Before jumping in, do your research. There are many commercial hair loss treatments as well as clinics that promise to reverse hair loss and restore your full head of hair. Tread carefully. Forums can be helpful to some degree, but just because one person has had a successful treatment and recommends it highly, it doesn’t mean that the same procedure will be right for you. Your best plan is to consult an expert. For your treatment to be successful, you need to feel confident with the skill and expertise of your doctor and what he has planned for your head of hair. Talk to a professional hair restoration specialist and get the guidance you can trust.
