Pattern Baldness In Men-Causes and Solution

pattern baldness in men solution Pattern Baldness is also known as androgenic alopecia. It is a type of hair loss that occurs in males under the influence of circulating testosterone.

Cause of Pattern Baldness
Testosterone, in general, promote hair growth but with the unfortunate exception of scalp hair. Androgen-sensitive hair follicles gradually disappear under the influence of circulating testosterone.
Testosterone itself causes less damage. It is converted into more active form Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) in testes, prostate, hair follicles and adrenal gland by the action of enzyme alpha-reductase. This dihydrotestosterone damages hair follicles of scalp and they gradually disappear. Pattern Baldness is a natural non-pathological form of hair loss in men and countless men are affected by this pattern baldness.
The solution of Pattern Baldness:
Nothing much can be done to stop hair loss. You shouldn’t be worried about hair loss as stress is a contributing factor. Other contributing factors are zinc deficiency, vitamins deficiency, protein malnutrition, use of synthetic hair creams gel and dandruff etc. Contributing factors should be avoided. Following options are available:
  • Alpha-reductase inhibitors: (finasteride – Propecia)
  • Minoxidil Hair Spray
  • Hair Transplant
  • Hair Wig
  • Colouring Agents
  • Hair thickening sprays
Hair wigs, Coloring agents and Hair thickening sprays can be used on a temporary basis. Hair transplant needs repetitive surgeries and is costly and there is a risk of surgical complications and problems but still, this method is practised widely.
Propecia (Finasteride) is a drug that limits the conversion of testosterone to more active dihydrotestosterone which is specifically responsible for hair loss. But this drug has potential side effects, especially decreased sexual desire and loss of libido which is not acceptable by most men.
Minoxidil is another drug which is available in spray form has been proved to be effective in the treatment of pattern baldness in some cases. Minoxidil promotes hair growth when applied topically.
Combination of finasteride and minoxidil has also been practised and is more effective. But there are the side effects of such treatments.

Live with Baldness:
Pattern baldness is a sign of high testosterone and many women like it. Many men like to shave their full head off. It is a natural condition and try to concentrate on other goals of life. If you don’t want to loose your hair at any cost than try any of the methods given above.
