A Look At Some Of The Common Theories on Causes of Hair Loss

Aug 17, 2007
Hair loss is not a birth defect, nor is it a disease. While the true reason hair loss occurs has yet to be known, one thing is certain: it is a natural act. A natural act, which is becoming more and more common among both men and women. With this fact in mind, it is unfortunate that it can become quite expensive to pursue the re-growth of your once luscious locks.

While it may be unfortunate that re-growth is expensive, it is not actually all that bad: bald men are in fashion these days! As many women are attracted to bald men, it turns out that even men with full heads of hair are deciding to go bald.

As the cause of hair loss is unknown, and therefore investigated, a few theories have been conducted. Some of the possibilities that have been looked into as possibilities include: androgen production, health, stress, and dihydrotestosterone (DHTs).

Hair is grown from hair follicles. If your hair follicles shrink and become too small, it is very difficult for new hair to grow. Because of that fact, one theory behind the cause of hair loss is that the male sex hormone androgen is circulating in your blood and causing your hair follicles to shrink.

On the same note of the necessity to have and maintain successful hair follicles, it is important to keep necessary nutrients and proteins flowing to your hair follicles. Poor health habits can hinder this. Good health habits can improve this.

Another theory on the cause of hair loss is stress. Through various studies, it has been found that most men under stress have more than the average amount of hair fall out about three months after the stressful period occurred. One way to help your hair in this case is to simply try to stay stress-free and relaxed.

The theory, which is most up to date in regards to things that contribute to the cause of hair loss, is that of dihydrotestosterone or DHT production. When the enzyme 5-alpha-reuctase (which transforms testosterone into DHT) is released, it can result in male baldness. Theoretically, if you medically balance your DHT's you should be able to reconstruct your hair follicles in which case you hair should start to grown back.

Many men are experiencing, or will experience hair loss or overall baldness. Remember that this is something, which can be desirable by others, but if it is undesirable to you there are certain products you can look into. If you do look into a product, though, be sure to be knowledgeable on the causes of hair loss, so that you can choose the best product for you.
