Causes of baldness in men:

  • High fever caused by sickness or infections
  • Pituitary and thyroid imbalance
  • Stress
  • Radiation from certain medical treatments
  • Certain medications such as steroids, interferon and chemotherapy
  • Fungal infections such as ringworm
  • Poor nutrition and vitamin deficiencies
  • DHT

By far the greatest culprit behind male baldness is DHT. DHT (Dihydrotestosterone) is derived from the male hormone, "Androgen". Androgen in the bloodstream interacts with a certain enzyme (5-alpha reductase) and gets converted into DHT. Short version: Androgen + 5-Alpha = DHT.

DHT is the hair follicle "strangler". When there is enough of it in the bloodstream, it will bind to the hair follicles, choking out the hair's growth. Not suddenly. At first, the hairs grow thinner because of the condition of the constricted follicles. Eventually, no hair at all emerges from the follicles.

Solutions

  • Surgery
  • The use of topical products
  • Proper diet
  • Dietary supplements

Surgery

Surgery is a very effective and quick solution. It is also a very expensive one. With this procedure, healthy hair follicles from the back of neck are removed and transplanted into the balding area.

Topical Products

Topical products are applied directly to your scalp. The strategy here is to rid your hair follicles of DHT. This is very effective, and a more affordable method than surgery.
