Hair LossIntroduction to hair loss treatment.
Hair growth is cyclic, with phases of growth (anagen), involution (catagen), and rest (telogen). The vast majority of males who are suffering from hair loss are usually so intent on finding a solution, they will turn to any number of solutions.
Baldness and hair loss are not always inevitable, and the amount and rate of loss can often be diminished with correct treatment. The good news is, there are more options available now than ever before.
It is a fact that man hair loss is a result of the effects of DHT on the genetically predisposed hair follicles. DHT causes increased hair shedding, gradual miniaturization of the hair, and eventual hair loss.
Which factors result in man hair loss?
Man hair loss is a result of factors that causes a general thinning in the area of the temples, a bald crown mid head or forehead area. These factors are:
- Hormonal Imbalance
- Illness and infectious diseases
- Nervous disorders
- Toxic substances
- Injury and impairment
- Severe radiation
How long before any hair loss treatment will show results?
Results are not achieved in days or weeks. It takes about 3-6 months for any noticeable improvement but again no two people will achieve the same results. What works for one may not work for another.
Side effects of hair loss treatments
While hair loss medicine can lead to either minimal or no side effects on its own, if taken alongside other medications, side effects can be magnified. They may also:

- Although unintended, any area of the body which comes into contact with a topical hair loss medicine may begin to grow unwanted hair.
- Leave a user’s hair looking greasy
