With age, it is not always possible to stop hair loss. But some treatments and remedies can slow this process down.

Men can experience baldness or hair loss for a variety of reasons. Although there are many reasons for hair loss the most likely is a genetic cause. Genetics or other cause can help determine the best course of treatment.
Male pattern baldness is a hereditary condition. Male pattern baldness is the most common cause of male baldness. It can begin as early as puberty or develop much later in life. In predictable forms, affecting the temples and the front half of the scalp. Most of the time, a man will have a horseshoe-shaped hairstyle.
Genetics affect how quickly, at what age, and to what extent male pattern baldness occurs. Men with male pattern baldness inherit hair that is sensitive to DHT, a hormone that can shorten the lifespan of hair follicles.
Other causes include
  • Scalp Infections
  • Patchy hair loss
  • Skin disorders
  • Hormonal changes
  • Hair-pulling disorder


Symptoms of baldness include:
  • Circular or patchy bald spots.
  • Patches of scaling that spread over the scalp.
  • Gradual thinning on top of the head.
  • Sudden loosening of hair.
  • Full-body hair loss.

How is it Diagnosed?

Before making any diagnosis, the physician will do a physical examination and ask about the diet, hair care habits, and medical and family history. You can also get tests, such as the following:
Blood Tests This can help detect conditions that can cause hair loss.
Pull Test The doctor will gently remove dozens of hairs to see how many come out. It helps determine the stage of the balding process.
Scalp biopsy Few hairs are pulled out of the scalp to examine the roots under a microscope. It can help in determining if hair loss is caused by infection.
Light microscope The doctor examines the hairs trimmed at the base using a special instrument. Microscopy helps to detect possible hairline abnormalities.

Treatment Options

Hair transplant procedures include the following:

Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT)

Follicular Unit transplantation is the most “classic” method. It involves removing a portion of the skin at the back of your scalp where there is a lot of hair, removing the follicles from that strip of skin, and then reattaching the hair follicles in the part of your scalp where you are experiencing hair loss.

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)

In FUE, hair follicles are extracted directly from the scalp and implanted in the bald part of the scalp. There are also risks of infections and scarring. You may also have to go through multiple hair transplant procedures to get the results you want.

Laser Treatment

Laser treatment is believed to reduce inflammation in hair follicles that prevent hair from regrowing. There is limited research to support its effectiveness in treating hair loss, but a 2016 review found that low-level laser therapy (LILT) is safe and effective in treating hair loss in men.


Before proceeding with the hair regrowth treatment, consult a doctor or cosmetic surgeon. He will decide after diagnosing your condition what is best for you.
