The chances of men getting a moon due to balding on their head is not once in a blue moon as baldness is quite a common trait in men. Male pattern baldness has been present in males since time immemorial. And though many don’t want it to happen, they just go with the flow and end up sad and feeling sorry for themselves when they realize that their once beautiful hair, which sat majestically upon their head have now faded away into nothingness.

Hair fall is indeed a very sad process and though many men insist that they will look better with a physique after all their hair is gone, they will always have an empty feeling inside.

What Is Balding?

Balding in men

Balding is the slow and painful (metaphorically) process of watching your hair fade away until there is nothing left to watch. But this process is something that many people face and can’t do much about usually. Also known as alopecia, it is something that is known to affect both women and men (although more prevalent in men, termed as male pattern baldness). But what is the definitive hair fall reason?

Why Does It Happen?

A definitive hair fall reason doesn’t exist but the reason for hair fall is something unique to every one… There can be multiple reasons for hair fall. Most commonly known ones are genetics, showering with hard water etc, but this section will elaborate on these reasons in a more articulate manner.

1. Hormonal Changes

As people transition into adulthood, they experience multiple hormonal changes… Hair fall can be caused due to these rapid and fast changes occurring in the body… In the case of men, the production of DHT is a primary reason as it is infamous for hair fall and male pattern baldness. During these times hair care has to be administered properly by these individuals on themselves or they will be left with hair at all…

2. Hair Styling Practices

A person’s hair styling practices can also be a major reason for balding. There are multiple people around who aren’t satisfied with their hair and keep changing them in usually drastic ways. Such recurring and abnormal amounts of change doesn’t fare well for their hair. As pointed out earlier, hair care is crucial and if not done properly can lead to balding.

3. Stress

Stress can cause your

hair to be a mess. And this stress doesn’t just relate to emotions as many usually relate it to. While it can be caused by this emotional stress, physical stress comes from the physical environment which your hair is exposed to. Wearing a cap all day and keeping their hair suffocated is the reason why some people will have to continue wearing caps for the rest of their life… not to look cool but to hide their head.

4. Genetics

Your genetics are… inevitable. Usually men pass down these genetics to their male offsprings and they too are left with a shiny bald head to pass down to future generations. But can this be changed? Obviously, yes. If hair care treatment is administered properly then yes, there is still a chance that you can turn the tables around and have a good set of hair to flaunt.

5. Nutritional Practices

Diet plans filled with nutrition are usually looked down upon as they seem tedious and many people feel that they can’t stick to it. Plans filled with iron, zinc etc., having 3-4 litres of water daily have helped people retain their locks. These nutrients are important for keeping your hair healthy and thus consuming them is a must do!
