Hair Thinning: Male Pattern Baldness
Men may not like to admit, but they are attached to their hair as well. Going bald can be a very scary thought. When you think of beautiful hair the first image is most likely some kind of long flowing locks on a woman; those are the images were inundated with on a daily basis. Our culture associates hair and beauty with women; however, anything that makes you look youthful is celebrated in both sexes these days.
So what can men do when they start to experience thinning hair or a bald spot? First, don’t panic! This just means you’re still alive. Before you go straight for the MJ look or Kelly Slater look please realize that once your hair is gone the earth will still spin. What you need to accept about male pattern baldness and thinning hair is that there’s not much you can do about it.
According to Medical News Today, “Male pattern baldness refers to a loss of hair on the scalp in men. It happens as hormone levels change over a man’s lifetime, and especially in the later years.
It is thought to affect 50 million men in the United States (U.S.), and half of all men by the age of 50 years. Although a natural part of the aging process for millions of men, hair loss can be psychologically distressing. Sudden or unexpected hair loss can sometimes indicate a more serious health condition that may need medical attention.”
While hair loss is often accepted as a sign of aging there are still steps you can take to keep your hair looking full and natural.
