Male pattern baldness (androgenic alopecia) is the most common type of hair loss in males, and it’s believed that 50% of all men over the age of 50 will be affected by baldness to some extent.
What Is Balding Caused By?
Baldness in men in many cases is caused by genetics and through a family history of hair loss. Research has suggested that male pattern baldness is associated with male sex hormone called androgens, as these have the job of regulating hair growth (among other things). While inherited male baldness usually has no medical ill effects, sometimes baldness can be due to more serious causes such as thyroid conditions, cancers, medications and anabolic steroids. Doctors use the pattern of hair loss to diagnose male pattern baldness.
Can Balding Be Prevented?
There is currently no known way to prevent male pattern baldness. There are theories that stress can cause hair loss due to the increasing production levels of sex hormones in the body. Reducing your stress levels by participating in relaxing activities such as exercising, walking, listening to music and enjoying quiet time can help in reducing stress and this reducing signs of hair loss, although this is no guarantee.
While the UK has an excellent healthcare system, issues with budgeting and stretched resources mean that hair transplants are not available to be had under the NHS. Similarly, if you go to cosmetic surgeons to get a hair transplant, you can be quoted anything to £20,000 in some cases which has given rise to the popularity of health tourism. Health tourism is defined as travelling abroad in order to receive medical care.
Many Brits have recommended the company Longevita for the best hair transplant in Turkey. Hair transplants have been changing the way people feel about their appearance for years. Losing hair can cause a massive drain to your confidence which makes the hair transplant procedure so important in restoring people’s lives to normal. From personal to professional pursuits, hair transplants have helped alieve people’s anxieties. Hair transplants are also one of the more natural cosmetic procedures medical practitioners can perform. The process is fair non-invasive and is far quicker than undergoing other procedures, meaning you’ll be back to your everyday life in no time at all.
Am I At Risk?
Male pattern baldness can begin young as teenagers but more commonly occurs in men, particularly as they grow older. Genetics also play a big role, so if you are aware of other male members in your family suffering from the conditions, it does increase your likelihood of contracting male pattern baldness.
How Do I Know If I’m Losing My Hair?
We all lose (on average) 50-100 hairs a day so there is no need to worry about male pattern baldness unless you are beginning to notice hair loss on the temples or crown of your head. Some men will get a single bald spot while others experience an ‘M’ shapes receding hairline. If you’re worried about your hair loss, simply contact your doctor for a proper diagnosis. With advancements to technology making hair transplants easily attainable and easy, you shouldn’t worry about being left with no hair on your head.

New York Giants’ Odell Beckham Jr. Goes Undercover As Head & Shoulders Massage Therapist
New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. picked up a little side gig, working as a Head & Shoulders massage therapist, much to the surprise of his fans.
Actually, Head & Shoulders’ new mane man pulled off a hilarious prank, going undercover at the Shoulders of Greatness Spa as a massage therapist. Odell surprised some of his fans with scalp and shoulder massages to help relieve the pressures they carry on their shoulders.
Watch as Beckham rubs them down and goes on and on about how his fans have “shoulders of greatness” and “really nice scalps” before revealing his true identity and making the day of some of his biggest fans! Seriously, how great is that?

Say Goodbye To Shaving Nicks And Cuts With Glyder Styptic Balm
Shaving technology has advanced pretty far since the introduction of the straight razor, but it is still no walk in the park. Not only that, but unless you work as a lumberjack, you probably need to shave regularly in order to professional.

Electric razors never give you a clean enough shave, leaving you with no choice but to risk turning your face into a labyrinth of bloody cuts, even if you’ve got the steady hands of a surgeon.
