What causes hair thinning in men?

Other than genetics and DHT, there can be various other reasons leading to hair fall in men. Some of these factors have been listed below to aid you in analyzing your hair fall determinant:

  1. Age: It is important for you to know that the rate of hair growth slows down with age. The amount of hair shedding each day matters, but not as much as the rate of hair regrowth. There are very few aged people with a head full of hair who have been able to defy genetics and aging factors to get here.
  2. Improper diet: Another hair thinning reason can be a poor diet. A good diet can provide exceptional results for your hair health. The two major diet components that have an impact on your hair are protein and iron. Protein helps in prolonging the hair growing phase while lack of iron in your diet can be a reason for excessive hair loss.
  3. Alcohol: Having a cocktail or two each day won’t cause much harm. However, unrestrained alcohol consumption can prove to be bad for your hair health. Consuming alcohol raises the estrogen levels at the same time reducing the zinc level which is an extremely important mineral requirement for growing hair.
  4. Smoking: It is a proven fact that heavy smokers have to go through a hair loss problem much more than non-smokers. A cigarette or two a day won’t do you much harm, however, if you smoke around 20 or more cigarettes a day it can prove to be fatal for your hair. Smoking disorders blood circulation leading to a disturbed blood flow to the hair follicles.
  5. Medications: The drugs you take can have an impact on your hair health, especially antidepressants, antifungal drugs, thyroid medications, non-steroidal inflammatory drugs, high blood pressure medications, cholesterol-reducing medication and weight loss drugs among many others. The impact of drugs is completely dependent on their type, dosage and your body’s sensitivity to them.
  6. Stress: Along with all the other practical reasons, stress can make your hair fall at an unimagined rate. One of the main reasons for hair fall is excessive stress. Excessive stress can eat up your body internally and have yet another visible impact on your hair. In order to take care of your hair, you must relax!
  7. Other causes: There can be numerous additional reasons affecting your hair such as skin disorders including psoriasis and dermatitis, fungal infections, diabetes, thyroid, lupus and anemia among many others.

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.
