HAIR TODAY, GONE TOMORROW: WHAT TRIGGERS HAIR LOSS IN MALAYSIA?

hair loss treatment for men

Hello, it’s 2024 now, a time when being S-H-O-R-T is no excuse to think “I’m short because both my parents are short, it’s all in the genes.” On the contrary, poor nutrition during childhood and adolescence can affect growth and lead to shorter stature.

Likewise, blaming hair loss or B-A-L-D-N-E-S-S on bad genes “My father is bald, so I’m destined to follow suit; or simply accepting that “it runs in the family…” is like, so OUTDATED!

While hereditary factors play a role, the triggers extend far beyond mere genetics.

In this article, we prepare you to embark on a journey of discovery, where understanding the enemy is the first step towards victory in the battle against hair loss.

UNLESS YOU ARE THE ROCK (DWAYNE JOHNSON) WHO GOES BALD BY CHOICE & NOT BY GENETIC PREDISPOSITION, HAIR LOSS IS THE #1 ENEMY FOR MANY MEN (AND WOMEN)

 

Male pattern baldness, also known as androgenetic alopecia, is a common condition worldwide. Nearly 40% of guys in their 30s will experience some amount of hereditary hair loss, affecting approximately 50% of men by the age of 50, according to a hair loss in Malaysia survey.

You may have noticed your father’s balding crown or your uncle’s receding hairline. But just because this has happened to the men in your family, doesn’t mean you’ll experience the same.

While genes typically play the largest role in male hair loss, hormones, diet, medications, and a few other causes can also be to blame. 

DON’T JUST BLAME IT ON THOSE CURSED FAMILY GENES! 

 

Hereditary Hair Loss 

Hair loss is not just a guy thing, it can happen to ladies too. It’s so prevalent in men that it’s even referred to as male pattern baldness. Generally, the genes inherited from your parents will cause your hair follicles – which each hair grows out of – to shrink or weaken and eventually stop growing new hair. 

 

Stress and Psychological Factors

Thinking everyday thoughts that do not worry or stress you out do not cause hair to fall as far as you are not stressing. The leading cause of stress hair loss (telogen effluvium) is the stress hormones known as cortisol.

Cortisol disrupts hair growth hormones and prevents healthy hair from growing. This results in weak hair growth, leading to severe hair loss.

 

Medical Conditions

Several medical conditions can contribute to hair loss.

Medical conditions affecting the thyroid gland can lead to hair thinning, even causing hair to come out in clumps when brushing. Treating thyroid disease may reverse this hair loss as it does not damage the hair follicle.

Alopecia areata, an autoimmune disease, causes hair loss by attacking hair follicles, impacting hair growth. It’s most noticeable on the scalp but can lead to baldness anywhere hair exists on the body.

 

Nutritional Deficiencies

Everyone knows that malnutrition is bad, not only for your health but also for your hair health. Studies have proven that quantity and quality of hair are closely related to the nutritional state of an individual. 

If you’re not getting enough of one or more of these nutrients; biotin, iron, protein, zinc and Vitamin D which are essential in maintaining healthy hair, you may experience a noticeable amount of hair loss.

 

 

Lifestyle Factors

There are some people who have a tendency to pull their hair, often as a way to relieve stress. They may be completely unaware that they’re doing it. If follicles have not been destroyed, then regrowth is possible, so you may need to consider therapy in order to stop pulling.

 

Environmental Factors

In addition to a poor diet, other environmental factors can also cause long-term hair loss, such as poor hair care and exposing your hair to harsh chemicals or intense heat. Once a hair follicle is damaged, revival becomes nearly impossible. 

Heat, particularly from hot water, blow dryers and UV radiation, is a major culprit in hair damage. To mitigate this, consider lowering shower temperatures, using heat protectant products, or wearing a hat in the sun.

And that’s just six of the nine root causes of hair loss in men! 

And genetics is JUST ONE of the factors. But don’t press the panic button yet, as there are some effective treatments that can slow down your hair loss and reverse its effects at Premier Clinic, Malaysia aesthetic clinic that offers best hair growth treatment and hair loss treatment for men.
