Baldness is always associated with aging, and if you are balding, people tend to think you are already somewhere in your 60s or older.
Then there are those poor souls who bald in their early 40s and 50s. It can be very distressing being bald at this early age. It certainly is very stressful going bald at any age. If you know you are one of those people being prone to baldness, you might want to check out some new hair loss treatment processes that bring back your youthful killer look.
Finding the Right New Hair Loss Treatment
The best possible way to find the right hair loss treatment that fits you is to go see an hair loss specialist, preferably one that kicks ass. How do you find someone that does that? One common tactic is to keep in mind everyone you know that suffers from hair loss. If you suddenly note any major improvement in their condition, simply ask how they did it; what product they used or who they went to. The advantage of doing this is preventing problems that are common with some forms of treatment. Also, some new hair loss treatment products can cause problems, especially if you have had any allergies.
Some of the new hair loss treatment products can contain irritating ingredients or cause skin allergies. Even if the label on the new hair loss treatment product claims that it is hypoallergenic, your scalp can easily become irritated if it is overly sensitive to some substances.
Not everyone reacts to a new hair loss treatment the same way. Different people may need different treatments. Just because a certain treatment works wonders for someone you know, it is not a guarantee that the same treatment will give you the same results. Testing different approaches and persistence is the key. If it seems like the new hair loss treatment does not work for you or if you experience adverse effects, stop that treatment and inform a health professional.
If you decide to use a new hair loss treatment product, be sure to closely follow the instructions given on the package, or by your doctor. Some new hair loss treatments have undesirable side effects when used longer than intended by the manufacturers, so be sure not to use it any longer than prescribed. To further hammer this important point into your head, let me tell you that there have been incidents where someone decided to use a new hair loss treatment longer than prescribed, which lead to ugly hair growth on the face. This sucks big time, especially if you are a woman, so please follow the instructions.
Lots of people are under the impression that the idiot who coined the phrase ‘bald is beautiful’ had a couple of screws loose, in addition to a full head of virile hair. Some people accept that hair loss may be a genetic thing that occurs naturally, but most people are trying to stop hair loss from happening or prevent it from happening. It is a known fact that it is a multi-million market that caters to the crowd who tries to stop hair loss.
About 10 per cent of the hair on a normal, genetically balanced person (somewhere in between neanderthal and nerd) sheds every two to three months. The rest of the hair grows about a half inch every month. When the old hair sheds, it leaves room for new hair to grow through existing follicles. One of the ways to stop hair loss is to eliminate the underlying cause. The underlying cause can be anything from the stress of major surgery, medications or hormonal imbalances caused by aging.
Fungal diseases affecting the scalp can cause hair loss and the way to stop hair loss is by using strong, harsh, antifungal medications. In addition, such diseases as diabetes and lupus have been known to cause hair to fall out. Having a doctor trying to diagnose the underlying cause can help uncovering certain ailments as well as helping to stop hair loss.
It’s Simply Impossible to Stop Some Hair Loss
When the genetics cause it, your gene pool dictate wheter or not you will be able to stop hair loss. In the case of common baldness (more complicated referred to as male pattern baldness), the hair stops growing on the top of the head, and the receding hairline indicates the beginning of a male pattern baldness case. The earlier a persons starts losing hair, usually the more hair they will lose as they get older.
When it is not common in the family to experience male pattern baldness, a visit to the doctor is recommended for tips on what to do next to stop hair loss. If it is determined that medications is to blame, using other drugs may stop hair loss. If the underlying case is a sickness or ailment, a cure is necessary for the ailment. Improper hair treatment could also be the case of hair loss and the doctor could possible be able to tell by looking at your scalp.
When you’re suffering from hair loss, not only are you losing hair, but you are also suffering from the psychological torment. This is usually the reason why people want to stop losing hair, because of the psychological effects, such as lower self-esteem, anxiety, and depression. This was definitely the case with me.
Both my dad and grandfather didn’t start losing their hair until their 40s. There were some hair loss on my mother side though, but nothing bad. Her hair is not thinning at all, although two of my uncles have a bit thinning hair. What helped me most in the beginning, was finding a good hairdresser who could help me find a good hairstyle to cover up my thinning hair.
Shaving my whole head was definitely something that I was not willing to even consider. I know, I know, everyone says to just shave your head, and that bald men appear more virile. My head just looks weird if I were to be bald. It’s oddly shaped, so no thanks!
Hello, I’m Bald Bob, and welcome to my hair loss blog. I’m 29 years old, and the last two years I’ve been losing more and more hair. I decided to make a blog to collect all the research I have been doing for the last two years. There was so much information, that in the beginning I was overwhelmed. There was a lot of opposing information, and therefore I decided to make sense of it all with my blog.
I didn’t want to go bald without a fight, and I am not someone who gives up easily.
