Baldness is losing hair or lacking hair on the scalp; it can be partial or complete. Since a long time, baldness is a term associated with men as it affects them more in comparison to women. Previously, this phenomenon occurred in men post 40-45 years but in recent times men of 20-30 years are facing this trauma.

There is no physical discomfort caused by baldness but the dent it causes on one’s appearance, it torments & causes great anguish to them. Balding has been synonymous to old age; thus, making it difficult to be acceptable among young people. This psychological impact leaves a grim sense of distress, demoralization & low self-esteem which overpowers the people facing baldness.

5 Major Causes That Are Making You Bald



    Also known as Androgenic Alopecia is a genetic disposition. If you have baldness running in your family don’t be surprised if it hits you.


    DHT is a male hormone formed when the enzyme 5-alpha-reductase (5-AR) converts testosterone into DHT. Increased DHT level is considered to be one of the main culprits in male baldness as it miniaturized the follicles.


    Some diseases create havoc in our system & adversely impact the follicles. Some of them are-

    • THYROID: Thyroid gland produces hormones & increases the metabolism. Hyperthyroidism- excess of hormones & Hypothyroidism- producing less hormones, both of these leads to hair loss & balding.
    • DIABETES: In this condition the insulin production or proper use of it is disturbed. The main function of Insulin is to regulate the sugar levels but in Diabetic patients the imbalance occurs leading to excessive hair loss.
    • CHEMOTHERAPY: Cancer patients generally undergo chemotherapy and as a side-effect it sheds hair. Spot balding or complete balding is quite common in cancer patients.
    • STRONG MEDICINES: Many serious illnesses are treated by strong medicines; the side effect damages the hair follicles.

    The modern consumer is spoilt for choice when he goes to buy hair care products but lack of awareness makes him select the wrong products. Chemicals in them make the hair dry, frizzy eventually leading to hair loss.


    The young getting distressed over hair loss & balding but new researches & studies have put the blame on our lifestyle. Some of the major factors are-

    • IMBALANCED DIET: This leads to nutritional deficiencies which in turn will stunt the growth of hair. Follicles need vitamins, proteins, iron, zinc, etc. to flourish & lack of it leads to hair loss & balding.
    • STRESS: It has been termed as a silent killer, if not kept under control it can ruin almost all functions of the body. The reasons are numerous- from professional to personal to emotional- leading to hormonal imbalance of great proportions. Sleep deprivation aggravates this situation.
    • ENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTION: High levels of pollution in the environment harm the scalp & hair.


  1. BALANCED DIET: A nutritional diet will ensure hair regrowth for men suffering from hair loss.

  2. CONTROL DHT LEVELS: For hair restoration it’s imperative to take care of DHT balance.

  3. USE GENTLE HAIR PRODUCTS: Be aware of harmful ingredients in your shampoo, conditioner, serum, etc. Go for herbal & mild products. These will help hair regrowth for men looking for solutions.

I am honestly thankful to Advanced Hair Studios. I suffer from a hair-pulling disorder. There is this constant urge to pull off your hair follicles. It is painless when you pull but extremely painful when you see a missing patch on your scalp. But, I feel blessed with AHS hair fall treatment. I can see baby hair growing. It’s been two weeks. All I can see is low hair fall.

I have done my hair transplant surgery in AHS Delhi Branch on 2019 by travelling to Delhi from Dhaka, Bangladesh. The front and the back portion of my head were bald and through the hair transplant surgery, they have managed to cover the front portion of my head and the former appearance of my face returned back. The way they collected hairs from the donor portion did not affect my donor area at all. I am quite happy with my result. I have been consulting with them for a second seating so that they can cover the back portion of my head as well so that the hair density on top will increase and the bald portion of my head will reduce to a minimum level.
