Proven Hair Loss Remedy
Hair loss in men is, by no means, a medical concern, but can affect a man a multitude of psychological ways. For some, a simple skinhead (or bald) haircut will disguise that awful bald spot. Every day it gets a little bigger, a little more noticeable. This ongoing loss can be crippling to the spirit. But there really is good news!
In recent years, medical science has made amazing advances in the treatment of men’s hair loss, or “Male Pattern Baldness“. With advances in both surgical and medical options, permanent and noticeable hair loss is no longer inevitable for men. It is now possible to slow the progression of hair loss – even to stop it completely – and to replace lost hair with completely natural results.
That said, the vast majority of hair loss treatments on the market today are, at best, little more than spray paint and at worst, metaphorical “snake oil”.
If you are losing your hair, you might have paid some attention to the various internet, magazine, TV adverts and infomercials promoting supposed ‘miracle’ cures for hair loss. Put simply, they just don’t work. You’re just wasting your money – and increasing any anxiety in the process.
Kirkland Signature Minoxidil
Minoxidil has been approved both the American FDA and the MHRA, here in the UK. Who are those people?! You’ve probably heard of the FDA (the “Food and Drug Administration”) in the United States. The MHRA is the United Kingdom Government’s equivalent, the “Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency”.
If a hair loss treatment has not approved by the MHRA or FDA, you are most likely wasting your time and money. Minoxidil is also recommended by the American Hair Loss Association. As far as we’re aware, there isn’t a UK equivalent.
Male Pattern Baldness
Male Pattern Baldness
Male pattern baldness is related to your genes and male sex hormones. It usually follows a pattern of receding hairline and hair thinning on the crown. Each strand of hair sits in a tiny hole (cavity) in the skin called a follicle.
Each of your hairs is ‘planted’ in to a tiny hole in your skin, commonly called a ‘follicle’. Generally, baldness occurs when your follicle shrinks, as a result of your age, your genetic makeup and your levels of hormones, specifically testosterone, all resulting in slower hair growth and shorter & finer hair. Eventually, the follicles simply stop growing new hair. The good news is that the follicles are still ‘alive’, meaning that it is still possible to grow new hair.
Male Pattern Baldness and Testosterone
You have most likely heard it before: bald men have higher testosterone levels and are more virile. It may help us feel a little better about our hair loss, but is it really true?
It’s absolutely true to say that hormones do play an important role in the onset of Male Pattern Baldness (androgenetic alopecia), but it’s not quite as simple as that, there’s more to it than just testosterone. Testosterone is known as the male hormone and, while women do have levels of testosterone in their bodies, men generally have around five times as much as women.
The apparent link between male hair loss and testosterone has been seen for centuries. Aristotle noted that eunuchs didn’t go bald. Eunuchs have almost zero testosterone. A similar observation was also noted in the 1960s by Doctor James Hamilton of Yale University, who observed that castrated boys/men did not develop male pattern hair loss.
Testosterone is responsible for many conditions in the body, from production of muscle mass to the deepening of the voice. But it isn’t simply testosterone that causes these effects. The body also converts testosterone into other hormones, and these hormones are the primary cause of hair loss in men.
Alopecia is the medical term for hair loss. The terms covers a number of types of baldness, botht in men and women.
“Androgenic Alopecia” is the medical term for Male Pattern Baldness. This type of Alopecia can affect men and women and is the most common cause (responsible for as much as 99% of all hair loss) of baldness and hair loss. It is the baldness you see in men, probably every day – the thinning crown, baldness over the temples and the characteristic ‘M’ shaped hairline.
The word “androgenic” refers to any natural or synthetic steroid hormone which regulates the development and maintenance of male characteristics in vertebrates (animals with backbones). Androgen is the hormone created in the testes when a male reaches puberty.
Androgenic Alopecia is simply baldness cause by natural male hormones. Minoxidil is proven to treat Androgenic Alopecia.
Alopecia Areata is different. Sometimes known as ‘spot baldness’, Alopecia Areata is not a ‘normal’ part of genetics and aging.
Characterised by small and apparently random patches of hair loss, of a few centimeters in diameter, which may occur suddenly, on the scalp or elsewhere on the body. Typically, a person affected by Alopecia Areata will find clumps of hair on the pillow in the morning. Hair loss caused by Alopecia Areata is unpredictable and random. Hair may grow back at any time and then may fall out again. The extent of this hair loss and consequent regrowth can vary greatly from person-to-person.
Alopecia areata is a disease – an autoimmune disease. Such diseases develop when your body’s immune system mistakes normal, healthy cells for ‘alien’ substances, and begins to attack them. Normally, your body’s immune system will defend you against foreign invaders, such as cold and flu as viruses, or bacterial infections. Generally, your immune system is your best defence against a multitude of potentially horrific invaders. Without a healthy immune system, you simply would not survive.
However, if you have Alopecia Areata, your immune system mistakenly attacks your hair follicles, causing them to decrease in size and strength and stop producing hair, leading to hair loss.
The causes for this disease are unclear, but it most often occurs in those with a family history of other autoimmune diseases – Type 1 Diabetes or Rheumatoid Arthritis, for example. This is why it is thought that your genetics and family history may contribute to the development of Alopecia Areata. It is also believes that certain environmental factors are needed to trigger alopecia areata in people who are genetically predisposed to the disease.
