What are the causes of hair loss in men? Read more on the most common reasons for hair loss in male patients
Men experiencing thinning hair will typically wonder about the reasons for their hair loss. So why do men lose hair? The causes of hair loss in men vary widely, but alopecia – genetically inherited, male pattern baldness – is what causes male baldness most often.
Nevertheless, there are many other reasons for hair loss, ranging from illness (including thyroid disease and anemia), medications (such as chemotherapy), and lifestyle, including stress, exposure to chemicals or UV rays, smoking, or the consumption of alcohol.
However, all of these factors will affect different individuals in various ways. For example, not everyone who experiences stress or has a family history of male pattern baldness will be affected in the same way. Thus, in most cases, the best option for determining the causes of hair loss in men is to see a physician.
Weathered hair is caused by excessive sunlight, excessive wetting, chemical and physical damage and hair shaft damage. Weathered hair, like weathered skin, detracts from your appearance and makes you look older than your actual age.
