Hair loss in men is a very common issue. In fact, research suggests that up to 50% of men will experience hair loss at some point, and it is one of the few afflictions to take centre stage in the male grooming market. It can be brought on by any of a multitude of causes, from nutritional deficiencies, to stress or trauma, to hormonal imbalances. Unfortunately, it is often regarded as an unavoidable trait of being a male, and has often been put down to genetics.
The hormones have a lot to do with this, regardless of genetics. As men age, dihydrotestosterone (DHT), the naturally-occurring hormone that promotes the growth of hair, among other functions, begins to wane and cause a shortening in the hair growth cycle, limiting growth. Consistent damage to the hair through dyeing or other harsh grooming products can cause further thinning.
For many men, the issue of balding or hair thinning is that it makes them look older than they are, and this can cause a plummet in self-esteem. The majority of sufferers also do not want to take such drastic measures as surgery to find relief from thinning hair, and would rather avoid the invasive and expensive solutions. The lower end of the market offers various products for men’s hair loss, although there is little evidence to support the claims made by these manufacturers, and they tend to delay the problem rather than offer any solution.
This is where scalp micropigmentation can provide the perfect fix for male hair loss. It offers instant noticeable and long-lasting results without the need for surgery, so men of all ages can feel confident about their hairlines.
