Receding hairline is the most common siren which alerts the sufferers about male pattern baldness. The male hormone androgen is generally responsible for the shrinking of hair follicle leading to shorter and finer hair which over the time stops having new hair at all. More often than not, the condition is genetic in nature but patients have also been seen to go through baldness for some other medical condition when the hairline is not actually receding but the hairs are falling out in cluster. This needs immediate medical attention and supervision, when baldness is not a condition but a symptom to something major like cancer.
If fighting MPH is giving you a tough time, you can feel a bit pacified knowing the below given facts:
If you are facing receding hair loss from sideburnor crown area you are suffering from male pattern hair loss already.Even teenagers can suffer from this but MPB is more prevalent in adults over 30 with 80% hair loss occurring at the age of 70 and above. People with maternal relatives suffering from (genetic) baldness are more likely to suffer from this. You can have a single balding spot mostly near the crown in oval shape or may face a receding hairline from forehead, leaving a shape of ‘M’ or inverted ‘U’.
Reasons of MPB are mostly of the uncontrollable nature over which you have limited or no control. Your genes are often at the play. The hair follicle that holds the hair slowly and gradually has thinner and finer hair during the hair growth cycle, ultimately leading to loss of the hair completely with the weakening of the follicle growth. However, stress and anxiety are also said to have their dirty hands which could be worked upon to some extent by yoga and meditation. Other reasons could be medical in nature, like thyroid, cancer, steroids, fungal infection of scalp, or nutritional disorder. However, hair loss due to these reasons is often not fall in the category of MPH and hairs come out in patches rather than reflected as a receding hairline.
The two proven medicines for the hair loss are Minoxidil (Rogaine) and Finasteride (Propecia) are often used in combination with each other and also singularly but are not without side effects to consider (weight gain, disrupted ejaculation). Using these medicines can give results from 30-70 per cent, but often discontinuing the medicines leads to resuming of hair loss.
Semi-permanent in nature, the process involves weaving of wig in to the natural hair, giving somewhat natural look. These weaved hairs stay in most of the rigorous activities like swimming, sleeping, and others. The only disadvantage is the risk to the naturally growing hairs as weaving process can permanently damage the follicle. Also you need to weave again with the new grown hair.
The last resort to severe kind of hair thinning, the process still must be taken early so that the patient has enough donor follicles to cover the baldness (recipient area) smartly. However, opting for this procedure depends heavily on the affordability of the patient. Being very expensive, there are many variables to be considered seriously: skill and popularity of the surgeon, number of transplants performed weekly, number of sittings / sessions the patient might need for a fuller-head look, financing possibilities, selection of the process to extract follicle (FUT or FUE), and risks involved post-transplant.
