Before we find out about Scalp Micropigmentation, let us see some reasons as to why men loss their hair.
Here's Why You're Losing Your Hair
If you are considering an Scalp Micropigmentation, chances are you understand a thing or two about hair loss. But it doesn't hurt to cover the basics of hair loss and some of the reasons for it.
1. It's All In Your Genes Man
Many men are genetically predisposed to experience hair loss . If your father or grandfather went bald, chances are you will too. It's all in your wiring, and there's not much you can do about it, unfortunately.
It's the same reason that some men are short and others tall. You just need to look at your family lineage to get an idea of the chances of you going bald as you get older.
2. You Are A Man, Not A Woman
Men are more likely to have permanent hair loss than women. Studies show that 70% of men lose their hair, compared to 40% for women. To be more specific, men are more likely to have androgenetic alopecia - more commonly known as Male Pattern Baldness (MPB).
MPB begins with hair loss at a man's temples and moves backwards to form a signature 'M' shape. But you may also experience hair loss on the crown of your head.
3. Another Dreaded Acronym (DHT) and Its Role in Hair Loss
DHT stands for dihydrotestosterone, a by-product of the hormone testosterone. DHT shrinks hair follicles and makes it difficult for them to thrive.
Because testosterone constantly produces DHT -- but at genetically determined rates that can vary from male to male -- men are more at risk for hair loss.
However, don't be quick to bash the role of DHT as it is responsible for many important male characteristics such as body hair, muscle mass, a deeper voice, etc.
4. The 3 Hair Growth Phases And How They Affect Hair Loss
Having a better understanding of hair loss also includes knowing the three phases of hair growth: anagen, catagen, and telogen.
5. Getting Older Means Losing Your Hair
With aging, our bodies change in different ways, and a man's hair is part of those changes. Our hair gets thinner as we age, the anagen phase of hair growth gets shorter, but - again - the rate of age-related hair loss in each person has a lot to do with genetics.
There are other reasons for hair loss, including medical conditions such as alopecia areata that make hair blotchy, or scalp infections. Some medications and supplements can cause hair loss, while radiation therapy also has an impact.
Meanwhile, lifestyle factors such as diet, smoking, alcohol consumption, and stress can hinder hair growth.
