How To (Really) Stop Hair Loss?

Mark Thomas just turned 29 in January and is already facing a bald future. He speaks to a pharmacist about his hopes for regrowing his hair.

I’ll never forget the morning I looked in the mirror and saw the spitting image of my grandpa Joe. At first, I thought it may be the smile, or maybe the deep blue eyes. Then I realized the shocking truth – my hair was abandoning ship. It was so subtle at first that I didn’t make anything out of it. But that morning I knew – the old family curse is creeping up on me.

It all started with a letter: a big “M” written across my forehead. A picture of me I don’t even remember taken tagged and hung up on Instagram for the world to see. The man I saw in the picture was nothing like the image of myself I had imprinted in my head. I quickly ran my fingers through my hair, going through either a panic attack or a full-blown cardiac arrest, and expecting all my hair to shed like I was dusting off an old statue. To my relief, the hairs still stuck. My heart slowed down.

But this was just the beginning.

Bald patches started to form on my scalp within a year like a disease. Soon enough, every picture I had shown this balding, insecure man trying to find an angle to hide it. I tried every single natural remedy I could find online, but none of them made a dent in my hair loss.

The more I researched hair loss, the more I realized that my grandpa Joe’s bald head was not a coincidence. Hair loss is passed down through genes, and unfortunately, there’s not much you can do to change it.

Or is there?

I bet you’ve probably seen the ads for Hair Loss treatments online. After all, 30 to 50% of men between 30 and 50 start experiencing the first signs of hair loss, so there’s no wonder there’s such a huge demand for a way to keep your hair to yourself.*

But if you’re like me, you’re probably skeptical. I mean, how can a topical solution really help reverse hair loss?

Well, it turns out that a few treatments may be highly effective in preventing hair from thinning and falling off. The catch is that most of them require prescription medication.

That’s when I remembered, one particular hair loss treatment ad from a company called TrueMedical. The name stuck in my head ever since I first saw their ad, and a few years later decided to visit their website and see what it’s about.

Losing your hair is not something to lose sleep over at night, at least not at a normal rate. That may be why a lot of guys don’t see a dermatologist unless the hair loss is sudden and followed by itching, clumps of hair coming off, or other symptoms. Part of it might be due to the shame. Losing your hair can lead to psychological trauma, emotional suffering and can significantly hinder a man’s self-esteem.

Indeed, men suffering from hair loss are more likely to develop depression, anxiety, social discomfort, and paranoia. In other studies, people with hair loss were compared to people grieving the loss of a loved one.

The good news is that hair loss may be reversible, but the bad news is that there are no guarantees. So if you’re starting to experience hair loss, the best thing to do is go see a specialist as soon as possible – before it gets too late.

Hair loss may be caused by a number of factors, including genetics, age, hormones, scalp infections, and autoimmune disorders. Male-pattern baldness, the most common type of hair loss in men, is caused by a combination of genes and hormones.

The sooner you address the issue, the better your chances are for reversing hair loss. So if you’re starting to see thinning hair or bald patches, don’t wait – act immediately.

Balsam Alabassi, a pharmacist at TrueMedical helped me understand hair loss better. “You wouldn’t believe how many people are hesitant to look for hair loss treatment,” she said.

There are a number of different causes of hair loss, including genetics, hormones, scalp infections, and autoimmune disorders. Male-pattern baldness, the most common type of hair loss in men, is caused by a combination of genes and hormones.

But what is this about testosterone causing hair loss I’ve been hearing so much about?

DHT, or dihydrotestosterone, is a hormone that’s found in both men and women. And while it’s important for normal bodily functions, too much of it may lead to hair loss.“ DHT is made from testosterone, and when it binds to receptors on the scalp, it may cause hair follicles to shrink and die. This can lead to hair loss, and the sooner you start treatment, the better your chances are for stopping the hair loss process.

There are a number of potential treatments for hair loss, including prescription medication, laser therapy, and topical solutions. However, not all of these treatments are effective for everyone.

The best way to find out which treatment is right for you is to speak with a specialist. They might be able to help you determine the cause of your hair loss and recommend the best treatment for you. Alternatively, True Medical offers a free consultation that may help determine the best treatment for you by having you answer a few simple questions about your hair loss, medical history, and habits.

While there is no cure for hair loss or male pattern baldness, there are a number of treatments that may help slow down the process and reverse it to some extent.

So what are these treatments for hair loss?

Finasteride and Propecia are two of the most common prescription medications used to treat hair loss. They both belong to a class of drugs called 5-alpha reductase inhibitors, which work by blocking DHT production.

By blocking its production, these medications may help stop hair thinning and falling off and reverse the process to some extent. While they may not work for everyone, they’re still some of the best options available for treating hair loss.

Topical treatments are a popular choice for hair loss, as they’re easy to use and may be effective for some people. There are a number of different topical treatments available, including minoxidil (Rogaine) and ketoconazole (Nizoral).

Minoxidil is a topical medication that’s available over the counter and may help strengthen the hair follicles. It comes in a liquid or foam form, and you apply it to your scalp twice a day. Minoxidil is thought to work by widening the blood vessels in the scalp, which increases blood flow and helps promote hair growth.

Ketoconazole is a prescription shampoo that’s used to treat scalp infections and seborrheic dermatitis. It helps kill the fungus that can cause these conditions, and some people find it may help improve hair health. Ketoconazole is thought to work by preventing the scalp from over-producing oils, which may lead to hair loss.

If you’re starting to experience hair loss, the best thing to do is go see a specialist as soon as possible. Don’t wait until it’s too late – early intervention is linked to positive outcomes. While there is no cure for MPB, there are a number of treatments that may help stop the hair loss process and reverse it to some extent.

I can totally relate to this. Everyone on my dad’s side lost their hair in their 20s, and as soon as I started noticing my hairline receding I knew I was in for it. I’m only 27 and I’ve already got a full head of thinning hair. It’s so frustrating!

I started to experiment with different hair products to see if that made a difference, and I’ve had a lot of success with this product in particular.

Zain Houghton

I’ve been struggling with male pattern baldness for a while now. I finally decided to try Rogaine and it’s helped me grow back some of my hair. I’m not completely bald, but there’s a noticeable difference in the amount of hair on my head. I was really self-conscious about it before, but now I’m starting to feel more confident. If you’re struggling with baldness, I recommend giving Rogaine a try.

Zack Thomas

I’m sorry to hear about your hair loss! I have been on a diet and it seems that my hair has improved. I’m sure that your hair loss is due to a combination of factors, including diet, genetics, and stress. I would recommend that you try to make some changes to your diet and see if that helps. Good luck!

Theodore Carter

I’ve been dealing with hair loss for a while now and it’s really taken a toll on my confidence. I’m not sure if I should try a hair product or just accept that I’m going to lose my hair.

Ted Jordan

You should definitely try Finasteride. I’ve been losing my hair since early 30s, and Regaine helped me have a better hair now in my 50s than ever. I’d recommend trying out TrueMedical for a few months and see how it works for you.

Sami White

I was going bald and didn’t know what to do. I’m not sure if it’s my age or something else, but losing hair is a big concern for me. I started to research the best ways to deal with hair loss and found a product that worked for me. If you’re experiencing hair loss, you should see a doctor as soon as possible.

Christian Wallace

I was really surprised when I started losing my hair. Everyone in my family always had lush hair. If you’re experiencing hair loss, I suggest you give Regaine a try. It’s a topical product that helps promote hair growth. I’ve been taking it for about six months. It’s not a miracle cure, but it definitely helped me. I hope it can help you too.

Aiden Howard

My mom’s family has thin hair and my dad’s family has low density hair, could this be why I am balding?

Oskar Martin

What are the signs that a male balding pattern is coming to an end? Losing less hairs in the shower? Or sides/crown not changing for like 5-6 years? How can you determine if you’re getting close to the end of hair loss?

Harrison Jones

I noticed while checking my hair that on some days it looks great while other days it looks absolutely awful. How hard should you pull your hair back while checking and is there a reason why hairline seems inconsistent?

Ben Harris

If you pull your hairline too much, you pull the skin which makes your forehead bigger and seem even worse. Try to pull your hairline back and press down so your forehead isn’t stretched.

Arlo Green

I’m a 20 year old male, and I’m looking for feedback on my situation. A couple of months ago, I became paranoid about my hair. I thought that my hair line was receding, but my parents and my barber don’t believe or are just trying to make me feel better. My genetics would lead me to believe I’m fine. My grandpa on the mother’s side had his hair even in his early 60s. Not sure about my dad, as he never met his dad. I shouldn’t be loosing hair but it seems I am.

Sam Davis

Maybe go to a dermatologist to get a check. But if short hairs look thin compared to other places then you are probbably balding.

Wyatt Jenkins

I’m so glad I found this blog post! I have been losing my hair for the last few years and haven’t known what to do about it. This article has a lot of great information, and I am definitely going to try some of these treatments. Thanks for posting this!

Connor Lloyd

It’s a really good article, but I think it would be helpful if you also mentioned that there are ways to fight hair loss. For example, as we age our bodies produce less of the protein needed for healthy hair growth. That being said, one can take supplements or use other methods such as massage therapy and acupuncture to get those proteins back into the body and promote hair growth.

You could also talk about how to style hair to make it look fuller. For example, using a volumizing shampoo and conditioner or styling products that add texture. Great article though, keep up the good work!
