For many men, at some point in their lifetime they accept that they are going to lose their hair. For others this is not something that happens, and many keep a full head of hair right up until the day they die! Male pattern baldness is a genetic condition that is caused by a sensitivity to a by-product of the male hormone testosterone. This then causes the hair follicles to shrink and eventually stop producing hair.
Although baldness is associated with old age, many men start to notice their hair thinning or have a receding hairline before the age of 21, so the fact that it happens to older men is really a bit of a myth!
Many men embrace their baldness – icons such as Bruce Willis and The Rock have paved the way for attractive bald men to rock the look! In fact, many women prefer men to have no hair! But if you want to hold onto your hair there are things that you can do to do this!
Some of the things that you can try if you are wanting to cover up baldness are toupees, hair transplants and scalp micropigmentation – click here for more info on scalp micropigmentation.
The choice of what to do when you are facing a hair follicle challenge is ultimately a personal one and we are lucky enough to live in a world where there are not only many options for covering baldness, but where being bald is also a great style of its own!
