Hair Loss

Hair loss happens to 2 out of 3 men, and 1 out of 5 women.

Frequent use of shampoo, poor blood circulation, wearing a cap, or similar personal habits have got nothing to do with hair loss.

For men, hair loss is usually genetically determined. As for women, it is often hormonal changes, including those that appear during the menopause, that are the main cause of hair loss and thinning of the hair. Accidents, burns, and illness can also trigger this unfortunate process.

With genetically determined male hair loss, the earliest changes start to appear already after puberty, where most men will experience slightly higher temples. Hereafter, the hair will slowly thin out throughout the years.

Some men will already start loosing their hair at the age of 20. The hairline in the front will slowly start to pull north, and the temples will become higher. This process is often seen along with thinning at the top of the head, which will slowly result in a bare area on the top of the head - a so-called bald spot.

In the most extreme cases all hair on the head will eventually be lost, and only a belt of hair, along the sides and at the back of the head, will remain.

Hair loss is usually treated with medicaments at first. These can be obtained with a prescription. If you suffer from hair loss, the first step would be to see your GP.
