Male-pattern baldness is the most
common type of hair loss, affecting over 6.5 million men in the UK.
pattern baldness starts with thinning of the hair and then develops into hair
loss on the temples and scalp. For the minority of men, male pattern baldness
can start from as early as their late teens, but this form of hair loss most
commonly occurs in men aged between 30-40. By the age of 45, most men have some
degree of hair loss.
majority of men who suffer from male pattern baldness tend to generate
emotional problems even as serious as depression. It is common for young hair
loss sufferers in particular to suffer from low self-esteem and bouts of depression
during the hair fall process.
baldness is usually inherited and can also affect women. It's caused by
over-sensitive hair follicles. Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) is produced by
hormone testosterone, and it causes the follicles to shrink and
eventually stop functioning.
The involvement of testosterone in balding
has led to the myth that going bald is a sign of virility. But men with
male-pattern baldness don’t have more male hormones than other men.
follicles are simply more sensitive to the hormones.
baldness is so called because it tends to follow a set pattern. The first stage
is usually a receding hairline, followed by thinning of the hair on the crown
and temples. When these two areas meet in the middle, it leaves a horseshoe
shape of hair around the back and sides of the head.
Eventually, some men go
completely bald on top. If you
have inherited the genes responsible for male-pattern or female-pattern
baldness there's little you can do to prevent it from happening.
like HR23 can slow down the process and in some cases prevent further hair fall,
but there’s no 100% guaranteed cure. If you suffer from early stages of hair
loss (Norwood Scale 1-4) then natural treatments such as HR23 are excellent
options you can take to hold onto your hair for longer.
Some patients have seen
excellent results from using HR23 including thicker appearance in hair and less hair fall.
