Millions of men all over the world have to deal with hair loss.
The main effect of hair loss or balding is not only that the person looks older but it also hurts one’s self-esteem and social confidence. That’s why hair loss treatments are getting more and more important.
The reasons for hair loss are numerous. One of them is heredity. Though hair loss runs in the family, scientists claim now it can be cured by gene manipulation. Men with genetic predisposition for hair loss may have sensitive areas in the scalp for male sex hormones. As age advances, these sensitive areas suffer from severe biological imbalance. The male hormone DHT is the culprit who ruins the hair. Slowly, over a prolonged period, the follicles wilt and finally the hair become thinner and shorter.
Hair loss can be treated with natural remedies and also chemo-therapically. There are three types of hair loss treatment available for the persons suffering from this condition.
