Remember: not all hair loss is the same, and most importantly, not all hair loss is permanent. It’s critical to identify and learn to understand what’s causing your thinning hair— stress, genetics, or environmental factors— to reverse it.
This blog post seeks to educate men suffering from hair loss or thinning hair by offering additional information on the effects of hair loss, the men’s hair restoration options available for dealing with hair loss, as well as tips for preventing further hair loss.
First, How to Know if You’re Going Bald
If you have ever had a passive aggressive friend asking you “is it normal to see your scalp through your hair?” then it’s likely that your hair might be thinning out. However, if your friends are kind enough to hold back on the hair comments then there are other ways you can track any hair loss. Of course, all of this depends on your age. If you’re in your 20s and you are concerned that you could be suffering from premature hair loss, there are some signals to look out for.
The first thing you need to ask yourself is “is my hair getting thin?” and keep track of any further signs of hair loss. Are you noticing more hair on your pillow in the morning? When you shower, do you feel like more hair is going down the drain? Male pattern baldness only affects the top of the scalp so you shouldn’t notice any hair loss on the sides of your head. If you think you might be losing hair, keep track of your normal hairline and see if you notice any changes. Keep an eye out on chart below.

Fortunately, there are modern non-surgical hair replacement solutions that offer the opportunity to add as little or as much hair as an individual may desire to regain the overall hair density they dream of.
Modern hair replacement advancements, along with the skill and artistry of trained hair replacement stylists, allow you to look in the mirror and see the hair you have always wanted.

A high quality hair replacement not only appears totally natural to the eye, but it also feels completely natural to the touch as your run your fingers through it.
Hair Loss Prevention
Unfortunately, when a man begins to go bald or shows signs of thinning hair, confidence is likely to follow the hair down the drain. However, baldness can be deceiving— many men who face hair loss at a young age are often dealt a bad genetic hand. Male-pattern baldness is caused by an inherited sensitivity to dihydrotestosterone (DHT), which leads to finer hair, a receding hairline, and finally a barren scalp.
Regardless of age, anyone who notices hair loss or thinning hair is prone to hop on the computer for some information to calm their nerves.
