How to Stop Hair Loss (MPHL)

How to Stop Hair Loss for Male Pattern Hair Loss?

Male pattern hair loss, also known as androgenetic alopecia, is an extremely common health issue faced by many. Over 95% of men’s hair loss is due to androgenetic alopecia. Symptoms include a receding frontal hairline, increased hair shedding and a slow onset of hair loss.

Some would say that hair loss is such a trivial matter to be concerned over, compared to the wealth of other diseases present that you could potentially contract. Well, I sincerely beg to differ. Significant hair loss affects over 85% of men over the age of 50. 85%! That means that over 572,050 men in Singapore could potentially be feeling insecure about their appearance or even resigned themselves to a fate of not having beautiful hair. Being social creatures who resort to flaunting our physical attributes to attract our partners, wouldn’t these men have a noticeable disadvantage in attracting women?

Additionally, androgenetic alopecia has been known to lead to increased risks of suicide and psychological distress. This shows without a doubt that men treasure their hair, and without it are definitely at risk of suffering from low self esteem. This is why we must treat this condition with the appropriate seriousness: Hair loss is a genuine problem.

Hair Loss Cure for MPHL?

Well fret not. It is 2017, and in our modern day and age, no one should have to suffer the humiliation of not having luscious hair. Here are some proven hair loss remedies that are available for you:

Rogaine(Minoxidil)

Rogaine works by widening your hair follicles, causing your hair follicles to appear thicker. It also works by prolonging the growth phase of your hair, known as anagen, causing you to have more strands of hair that grow longer. Though Rogaine is not controlled and you can readily purchase it at the nearest pharmacy near you, it is highly recommended that you consult a medical professional for advice before purchasing it. This is because Rogaine is available in different concentrations and might cause allergic reactions.

It is worth noting that 3-6 months of Rogaine application is required before noticeable hair growth can be observed, and any hair growth that occurs during the application of Rogaine should be expected to fall off if Rogaine is discontinued. Although not really a hair loss cure per SE, this is considered one of the more effective hair loss remedies for MPHL.

Rogaine is available both as a foam and a solution.

Propecia(Finasteride)

Another popular MPHL hair loss cure strategy is Finasteride. Finasteride deals with the root(pun intended) cause of androgenetic alopecia. You see, the reason why men lose their hair is due to this pesky hormone called dihydrotestosterone(DHT). When you have too much of DHT, you experience hair loss. DHT forms by an enzyme converting testosterone into DHT. By introducing our superhero Finasteride into your body, this drug inhibits the enzyme, preventing it from converting testosterone into DHT. Thus, after a few months of beginning treatment, you will begin to notice hair growth!

As above, do consult with a medical professional before beginning treatment. This is because consumption of Finasteride can lead to side effects such as sexual dysfunction or increased risk of prostate cancer. In order for you to evaluate the risks appropriately, it is necessary to have someone educated about the matter to help you.

Propecia is available in pill form.
