Male Hair Loss Treatment – Some Popular Methods

Hair loss is one of the most common issues that men experience. Research has shown that male hair loss is mostly due to increase in androgens or sex hormones, and the hypersensitivity of the hair follicles to this increase. The result is male pattern baldness, which is sometimes a genetic condition as well. However, you need not fret; going bald is in fashion these days. Yet, if you are worried, you can choose a suitable male hair loss treatment from below.

Hair Transplant

Here, hair is transplanted in the form of minute hair plugs extracted from the rear of the scalp and then transplanted to the bald spot.

Minoxidil

Also known as Regaine, Minoxidil is used for hair loss and is found to give reasonable results. It comes in the form of a cream, which should be applied two times every day. Firstly employed for treating high blood pressure, Minoxidil should not be used by people suffering from heart ailments, hasty heartbeat, or chest aches.

Finasteride

This is another commonly used treatment. It consists of a 5-Alpha Reductase Inhibitor, which works by obstructing 5-Alpha reductase, and thereby preventing the conversion of the enzyme into DHT (Dihydrotestosterone); DHT being the main cause of male pattern baldness. Finasteride was at first used for treating prostate problems; now it is used as an effective drug for stopping balding. Rarely, it may cause some side effects like impotence, ejaculation disorders, rashes, breast tenderness etc.

If you are looking for a Natural Hair loss Treatment, the truth is that you won’t find one. Although the market is filled with many so called natural hair loss treatments, they won’t give you fast results as a hair transplant or DHT blocker would. However, you can consider the intake of certain foods as your natural hair loss treatment. For example: a healthy diet, rich in zinc, calcium and iron, will help a lot in checking hair loss.

Although these treatments help in reducing the speed of balding – as already said – there is no complete cure for male hair loss. One sure way of forgetting your hair loss, is to go for a very short hair cut or a clean shave. This is surely a fashionable means of solving your hair loss worries, if not a way of getting back your hair.
