Hair Loss in Men: the Why’s and the How’s

You’re losing your hair and you don’t know how to save it. All the wrong people are trying to diagnose you and telling you what to do and what not do. Yes, there are ways to get your natural hair back. All hope is not lost yet. But first, you need to understand what type of hair fall, its’ causes you have and then go on to treat it.

All men experience hair fall, receding hairlines and balding and nobody is a fan. Before trying to treat your hair problem you have to understand the ‘root’ problem - like literally! Talk to a hair specialist to understand your hair and hair fall pattern. In-house hair specialists at Kaya do a step-by-step scalp diagnosis to understand the type and causes of your hair fall and then recommend the most effective solution and treatment for your hair problems.

Each strand of your hair goes through a three-phase cycle - Anagen which is the active growth stage, Catagen phase - your hair enters the transitional phase, and finally the Telogen Phase when the strand leaves the follicle and falls off. After which the follicle is inactive for three months and then the cycle repeats itself again. Stressed lifestyle, hereditary factors, hormonal imbalances, exposure to harmful chemicals and pollution are some reasons why you could be experiencing hair fall. There are three major types of hair fall and it's important to diagnose the type and cause of hair fall before getting into any treatment.

  1. Male Pattern Baldness - Androgenetic Alopecia
    Symptoms of male pattern baldness present itself with hair thinning on the crown area and receding hairlines. Sadly, this type of hair fall is in your DNA and it is something you have to face eventually. You will notice that your hairline slowly moves backward forming an ‘M shape’ in your crown and then the hair at the back of the head gets finer, shorter, and thinner eventually forming a U-shape. It forms a U shape because the hair in the sides of the head is not affected by the male hormone DHT (dihydrotestosterone) that causes hair follicles to shrink, eventually becoming bald.

  2. Diffused Shedding - Telogen Effluvium 
    Diffused hair shedding occurs when hair follicles throughout the scalp enter the Telogen Phase early and hair continues to fall out for 3-6 months. The cause for this type of hair fall can be hormonal imbalances which is why it can be very unpredictable. 

  1. Spot Baldness or Bald Patches - Alopecia Areata 
    Alopecia Areata is considered an autoimmune condition because in this type of hair fall your immune system attacks your hair follicles which leads to hair loss. You may see round bald patches on your head when you have this condition. 

Treat your Hair Fall

Once you’ve understood the cause and type of hair fall you’re experiencing, it can be treated with either cream, laser treatments, Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy or hair regrowth by Hair Transplant Treatment. You can talk to the dermatologists at Kaya Clinic and understand more about the type of hair fall you’re experiencing and the causes behind it. The experts at Kaya will also recommend the best products and treatments for your condition to boost hair regrowth and get your hair back. Hair transplants are considered one of the most effective methods of hair regrowth because in this method hair follicles from another part of your scalp, generally the sides and back of your head, are harvested and transplanted on the balding area of your scalp. The transplanted hair then grows normally and would take a few months to grow back. Kaya’s dermatologists suggest a hair transplant method called Follicular Unit Extraction for Hair Transplant coupled with other hair regrowth solutions to give you a completely natural look.

Now you don’t have to live with har fall, receding hairline or balding anymore. You have a problem and Kaya has a solution. It’s important to get your hair fall problem correctly diagnosed with an expert. So head to your nearest Kaya clinic and reclaim your natural hair back!
