A few years ago, there wasn’t much a man (or woman) could do for hair loss prevention, except to settle for a fake-looking hairpiece or bristly hair plugs that didn’t blend in with his natural hairline. Today, there are a variety of treatments for hair loss prevention, many of which have sound medical research behind them. If you don’t want to go the medical route, there are a variety of natural solutions to help you keep (and maybe even regrow) your hair.

Hair loss prevention begins with ruling out medical causes like thyroid imbalance, liver or kidney disease, anemia, vitamin deficiency, lupus, diabetes or some other systemic cause. If your hair loss isn’t due to a disease or condition, as determined by a physician, it could be that you have a genetic predisposition for a type of hair loss that is treatable. If you aren’t genetically predisposed, there are still solutions based on herbal remedies. If you don’t like lotions and potions and pills, cosmetic sprays are another possible solution.

Let’s assume for a moment that you’ve seen your doctor and have received a clean bill of health. Now you’re ready to explore the alternatives for hair loss prevention. You may have heard of Rogaine® and wonder if it would work for you. It will, but only if you have a specific type of thinning hair called “male pattern baldness.” If your hair is thinning at the crown and temples and front hairline, it’s likely that you have this condition, which is caused by an overproduction of the male hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT). DHT attacks the some follicles that are genetically predisposed to be sensitive to DHT. The follicles weaken until eventually they stop producing hairs. Rogaine® is a topically-applied solution that blocks the action of DHT, preserving the hair in the process. This product is widely available over the counter without a doctor’s prescription.

Propecia® is another product to consider for hair loss prevention if your thinning hair is due to overproduction of DHT. This is a prescription drug that blocks the action of an enzyme needed by the body to make DHT. No enzyme, no DHT, no hair loss. It’s that simple! With both Propecia® and Rogaine®, you have to take or use the product regularly; otherwise the benefits will begin to reverse.

Want to try the herbal route for hair loss prevention? Try saw palmetto as a dietary supplement or apply it topically in a shampoo, conditioner or serum. Saw palmetto blocks the action of DHT. Green tea is another possible solution. It blocks an enzyme needed for DHT production. Another enzyme blocker, stinging nettle, is also thought to be effective. There are some products available that contain various combinations of these herbs in the form of dietary supplements.

Male Hair Loss- Some Causes and Treatments

by Brent Ruyle on January 31, 2011

Suffering from premature male hair loss? Want to know what causes it and how to treat it?

What causes male hair loss? There are many answers to this question, but in truth only a doctor can make a concrete determination. First, medical causes like thyroid imbalance, lupus, diabetes, liver disease and kidney disease must be ruled out. This necessarily involves traditional medical tests prescribed and evaluated by a physician. Your male hair loss, if it has an underlying medical cause like thyroid imbalance, can be treated and possibly reversed.

Your doctor may diagnose you with androgenic alopecia or alopecia areata as causes of your male hair loss. Androgenic alopecia is commonly known as male pattern baldness and occurs as the result of a complex set of genetic, hormonal and enzymatic interactions. Alopecia areata is thought to be an autoimmune disorder in which the body’s immune system destroys body tissues (like hair) that it normally would ignore. Alopecia areata is treated with medium to very high potency topical corticosteriods, subcutaneous steroid injections and ultraviolet light.

Androgenic alopecia is by far the most common cause of male hair loss. Hair begins to thin at the temples, frontal hairline and crown. Over time hair will be completely lost in these areas, resulting in a fringe of hair remaining at the sides and back of the head only. The process of androgenic alopecia is thought to be genetically linked, that is, the follicles in the areas of the head experiencing balding are inherit a sensitivity to the action of a hormone called DHT or dihydrotestosterone. DHT is formed when the hormone testosterone is converted via the action of an enzyme named 5-alpha reductase.

An overabundance of DHT in a man’s body causes the DHT that is present in the scalp to attack follicles that are genetically predisposed to be sensitive to it. DHT works to make the follicle miniaturize, with the result that the hairs produced become thinner and thinner. Eventually the hair becomes transparent and the follicle becomes inactive — it stops producing hair. Note that only susceptible follicles are affected. The hair at the sides and back of the head is naturally resistant to the action of DHT — an important fact to know when considering treatments for male hair loss. This resistant hair can be transplanted to balding areas to recreate your hairline.

Treatments for androgenic alopecia include drugs that block the action of DHT. These drugs may be combined with growth stimulators that cause the follicle to produce hair despite the action of DHT. The best-known DHT blocker is the prescription drug PropeciaÒ, generic name finasteride. Finasteride actually works to block the action of the 5-alpha reductase enzyme that is responsible for turning testosterone into DHT. In a clinical study, 64% of patients who took this drug for male hair loss experienced hair regrowth after to 2 years. The drug is even more effective in helping you keep the hair you have.

The most familiar growth stimulant is a non-prescription topically applied product named RogaineÒ, generic name minoxidil. In a clinical study, 59% of male hair loss sufferers began regrowing hair within 4 months. Minoxidil may also be a good preventative.

The best regimen is a combination of finasteride and minoxidil as a treatment for male hair loss caused by androgenic alopecia. See your doctor first. If you have androgenic alopecia, there are potent medicines to help you combat it.
