Every man, when begins to go bald, loses much more than his hair – he loses his confidence. One study in Spain has shown that around 62 percent of all men who participated in the study said that they could easily lose their confidence if they have started to go bald. Experts say that the problem is with what people associate hair loss – aging. Furthermore, for ages thick hair was considered to be one sign of masculinity and youth.
Statistics say that 2 out of 3 men face hair loss by the age of 35 and in most cases the genetics are to blame. Luckily, scientists and doctors have started actively working on fixing or at least slowing down baldness.
If you are facing this problem, here are some things that you can do:
What is the cause?
The answer to this question is something that you have to find out right away. However, this is something that you should not do on your own or consult people online, instead, make an appointment and visit your doctor. According to experts, doctors can sometimes diagnose baldness, just by taking a look at your hair.
Don’t buy advertised solutions
At this moment, there are literally hundreds, maybe thousands, of different products advertised as a solution for baldness. First of all, most of these products were not even tested and second, they do not really help with slowing down your hair loss or help you regrow hair that you have lost. There are soma FDA-approved drugs that really help with maintaining the hair that you have, but they also don’t stop hair loss.
Change your current shampoo
Just like the products that are advertised to help you stop hair loss, some shampoos say that they can help you have thicker hair, however, there are just a few on the market that really do that. Actually, the only nonprescription shampoo that helps you preserve the hair that you have is the Nizoral A-D, a shampoo that contains Ketoconazole, an ingredient that is used to fight dandruff and at the same time helps you save your hair.
Carefully choose what you eat
One research, which was done in India, has shown that skipping fried foods and desserts can have lots of positive effects on your hair. Sugar is known to trigger release of testosterone, which could accelerate the loss of your hair.
Hair transplantation has recently become one of the popular ways to “cure” baldness or at least make your hair look better. There are two different procedures – FUT and FUE. First is the follicular unit transplantation – surgeon takes your hair from your half and make groups of three or four hairs and later they insert that hair where you need it. The second procedure is called follicular unit extraction – the hair is robotically harvested from the back of your head and then inserted where needed. The second procedure is done in around 95 percent of all cases. Unfortunately, both procedures cost between $5,000 and $10,000.
