Male hair loss may not seem like much of a big deal. After all, it's trendy and acceptable now to just shave your head when your hairline recedes too much, or at too young an age. Women don't really care if men are losing their hair, do they?
The Effects of Hair Loss on Men
In spite of increased acceptance of this very common problem, many men experience a loss of self-esteem and other negative effects when they start to lose their hair, which happens to 20% of men in their 20s, 30% in their 30s, and 40% in their 40s. Men in these age groups are considered to be balding prematurely, and here is where the effect on self-esteem is most pronounced.
In addition to lowered self-esteem, men's hair loss can also trigger depression and other psychological problems like body dysmorphic disorder or even a psychological breakdown for some men. While some men will take hair loss in stride, for many, it has a profound impact on how they view themselves and life decisions they may make as a result. Some men will look to find a woman to marry quickly before they lose all their hair, even if that woman may not be a good choice for them. Others may stay in a dead end job because they lack the confidence to try for something better.
Although many men feel like there is nothing they can do to stop or reverse hair loss, there are treatments available that can help. Knowing that hair loss is not inevitable may help men overcome their loss of self-esteem and move forward in life.
Treatments for Male Hair Loss
Many celebrities and others in the public eye see a full head of hair as part of their allure. When these public figures begin to lose their hair, they turn to hair transplants to regain what has been lost. Even hair stylists like celebrity stylist James Brown have turned to transplants, and this can be an effective, if expensive, way to get a full head of hair back.
For those who don't have thousands of dollars to spend having surgery to look better, treatments like the medicine Rogaine can help hair to regrow for some. But Rogaine (generic name minoxidil) has side effects from burning and stinging to rashes and swelling. Rogaine can also cause hair to grow where you don't want it. Nevertheless, for most people seeking hair regrowth, this is a good option.
Sometimes the cause of hair loss is that hair follicles aren't healthy enough to produce hair. The causes of hair loss are not yet fully understood, and neither are the cures. Scalp regenerating shampoos aren't as quick as some other treatments, but with faithful use, they can help hair follicles regain their health so that they can start to grow new hair. The best scalp regenerating shampoos contain healthy oils like coconut oil and superfood extracts like noni. They also avoid harsh chemicals that may compound the damage that caused hair loss to begin with.
Biconi's Hair Rejuvenating Solid Shampoo contains both coconut oil and noni to stimulate the scalp to produce new hair as well as thicken existing hair so it looks fuller. No harsh chemicals are used, which protects hair from further damage.
