How to Determine if Men�s Hair Loss is Permanent

Article by Matt Murren

There are many things that can cause hair loss of any kind including men’s hair loss.  Some of these causes may be permanent, and others only temporary. Even so, when your hair starts falling out  in clumps, it can be a scary feeling.

The Process

Hair grows all the time and over 90% of your hair is growing at any one time. But 10% of your hair is inactive and it is normal for this 10% to fall out after a couple of months. When this happens then new hair takes its place. The hair loss becomes a problem when hair doesn’t re-grow or grows in too slowly.

Real and notable hair loss can occur for many reasons, sometimes this hair loss is temporary, other times it is more permanent. Lets look at the different types of hair loss and why they happen.

Temporary Hair Loss

Some people may lose hair after having a major illness or surgery. This type of hair loss is usually temporary and is caused by the bodies reaction to the illness.  This type of hair loss may occur up to four months after the illness, but your hair will eventually grow back.

Even women who have recently had a pregnancy may experience hair loss. But again, this is only a temporary loss and will grow back.If you are suffering from hormonal problems or if your thyroid is overactive or under active, you may experience some form of hair loss. This type of hair loss can be treated by treating the thyroid or the hormone imbalance.

Because many of the reasons for hair loss are temporary, or medically based, when you start to experience hair loss, you should visit your physician to get his opinion. Even infections or medicines can cause hair loss, so your doctor should rule any of these out before you decide to undergo any type of hair loss treatment.

More Permanent Hair Loss

Men’s hair loss tends to be more permanent, although there are some women that are also affected by it. Up until now, it has always been thought that a man’s hair loss was caused by a trait in the genes, and although you may be predisposed to hair loss, this may not be the only reason you experience this type of hair loss. It may also be caused by an excess of  the DHT hormone. Most men can tell if they are experiencing permanent hair loss because they will start to see a receding hair line or a bald spot at the top of their head.

Start Treating Men’s Hair loss Quickly

If you start experiencing hair loss its important that you see your doctor. He may recommend diet changes. Vitamins that will control the DHT hormone and a couple of topical solutions that will prevent you from losing any more hair, or that will slow the process down.
