Overview

What is Hair loss?

When you start noticing your hair is thinning, or when you find your hair falling out on combing it, this can be a worrying time for you.

  • Hair loss is a common health condition that worries most men
  • Propecia | Finasteride is a safe, effective and potent treatment for male pattern hair loss
  • Propecia generates weakened hair follicles, prevents damage to healthy follicles, increase hair density and thickness, and accelerates the rate of hair regrowth.

 Is hair loss normal?

Hair falling is a normal process in the lifecycle of each hair follicle. Healthy individuals lose around 100 hairs per day, which are renewed by a process called "hair regrowth". Hair loss occurs when you lose more strands of hair every day than what your hair follicles produce by hair regrowth.

Mild hair loss from time to time is a normal thing and can go unnoticed. However, when we start noticing that hair is thinning to the degree that affects appearance and body image, most of us become worried, and we start looking up for hair loss causes, treatments and how to stop it.

What causes Hair loss?

  • Hair loss or hair thinning can occur due to different causes.

Men

The most common of all causes of hair loss in men is the genetic factor

Women

Hormonal changes with periods, pregnancy, labour, and menopause are the most common cause of hair loss in women. 

What are the treatments available?

While there is no such thing is 'hair loss cure', there are treatments for hair loss that increase the rate of hair regrowth and prevent further hair thinning. Amongst the effective treatments of male pattern hair loss is Propecia (Finasteride). Propecia regenerates weakened hair follicles, prevents damage to nearby healthy follicles, increase hair density and thickness, and accelerates the rate of hair regrowth.
Some men use hairstyles and makeup to make their hair look thicker, some use hats and scarves to cover their hair, while others choose to solve the problem itself by looking for effective treatments to restore hair growth and stop/delay hair loss.

Causes

Is my Hair loss genetic?

Specific "balding genes" control hair loss/hair thinning in both men and women. However, the
way these gene functions are different in men from women.

When a male with these balding genes (or at least some of these genes) becomes prone to develop baldness, a female with these genes experiences hair thinning only and never alopecia (baldness).
In men, balding genes act by conversion of the masculine hormone "Testosterone" into another
hormone "Dihydrotestosterone - DHT", and this is where Propecia (Finasteride) saves the day.

Hormone affecting hair loss

DHT hormone weakens your hair follicle, making them shrink and atrophy. This negatively affects
the rate of hair regrowth, lowers hair density and strength, and finally causes hair thinning / hair
loss.

How does Finasteride/Propecia work?

Finasteride | Propecia is hair loss treatment that works by breaking this process of "Testosterone – DHT – Hair loss" in the most effective way. Propecia hair loss treatment prevents the conversion of Testosterone into DHT, which means no further damage to hair follicles.

Although hair loss, hair thinning, hair falling, alopecia, baldness, etc., all can be the results from a combination of multiple factors and not just a single one. Still, the genetic factor is the most common and most significant single factor to cause hair loss in men.

Thyroid regulation

Thyroid problems can also cause hair thinning or loss in both males and females.

Non-genetic causes of hair loss include:

Drug intake (iatrogenic factors)

Some medical conditions can cause hair thinning. However, the medications for these conditions, rather than the conditions themselves, is what causes hair loss.
These medications include medications for:

  • Depression
  • High blood pressure
  • Heart problems
  • Gout
  • Arthritis
  • Cancer


If you are using any of these medications, you might need to consult your doctor for changing them or for adding anti-hair loss treatments to your regimen.

Unknown (idiopathic)

In some cases of non-androgenic hair loss, the cause of hair loss may not be clear, even with thorough testing and investigations by your doctor. In such case, your doctor will prescribe you Propecia and/or Minoxidil, since many cases respond to these common anti-hair loss treatments.

Use of Harmful hair care preparations

Most of us use hair care products in their different forms, including:

  • Hair dyes
  • Luster products
  • Shampoo
  • Products for hairstyling (in which your hair is pulled straight)
  • Hot hair oils.

If these products are tested, prepared and produced by a trusted manufacturer, and are used according to instructions, then they are unlikely to cause hair loss.
However, if you use unknown products with harmful preparations, or you use hair care products more frequently than you should, then it is possible to weaken your hair and affect the rate of hair regrowth, and thus causing hair thinning/hair loss.

Treatments

What are the treatments available for Hair Loss

Finasteride | Propecia

Hair loss occurs when the male hormone "Testosterone" is converted to "Dihydrotestosterone - DHT" at the base of hair follicles. DHT is harmful to hair follicles, causing them to shrink and become week and atrophy (die). This means your hair will start falling and hair loss will be apparent.

Effective hair loss medications like Finasteride | Propecia are prepared to counter this hair loss mechanism. Propecia prevents the conversion of Testosterone into DHT, and thus prevents further damage to hair follicles, restore hair growth, and increase hair density and strength.

Symptoms

What are the symptoms of Hair loss?

The first symptom may be a comment from a friend on your hair being thinner than it used to be. You may notice your hair is weaker than before when you comb it and find too many hair strands fallen on the brush.

Hair thinning

Hair thinning / hair loss can start in specific areas or patterns. The most common hair loss pattern in men is called the male (androgenic) hair loss pattern (also called androgenic pattern). Hair loss in men starts at the temples, followed by receding of the hairline gradually with thinning on top of the head, and finally the crown (back of the head) hair begins to get thinner as well.

Male pattern baldness

Male pattern hair loss starts to manifest in the second, third or fourth decade of life; with 1 in 5 men affected in their 20s, 1 in 3 in their 30s, and 1 in 2 in their 40s. Male pattern hair loss is called the "androgenic pattern" since it is caused by the conversion of the male androgen hormone "Testosterone" into "Dihydrotestosterone – DHT" at the base of hair follicles. Hair loss treatments like Propecia (Finasteride) acts by preventing this conversion and thus delaying male pattern (androgenic) hair loss.

FAQ

  • Is hair loss reversible? Alternatively, is hair loss permanent?

    Hair loss is "controllable". This means you can use treatments like Propecia
    (Finasteride) to stop further hair loss and restore hair regrowth.
    However, if hair loss is caused by other factors that lead to scarring (e.g. exposure to heat
    trauma), then hair loss will be permanent, and hair transplantation will be the way to go.

  • Does hair gel or spray cause hair loss?

    As long as you buy them from trusted shops and use them as instructed, you are all good.
    However, excessive application of hair gel or spray, or using unknown products can
    sometimes cause hair loss.

  • Do hats cause baldness?

    Whatever you wear on you head has nothing to do with you experiencing hair loss.

  • Is there a cure for baldness?

    There is no 'cure' for diabetes, but diabetes is a very 'treatable' health condition.
    In the same way, there is no 'cure' for baldness, but hair loss can be 'treated' and slowed
    down using medications like Propecia

  • Is it true that if I pluck one grey hair and two grow back?

    In one word, "NO!" You can pluck all grey hairs there, and no more than 1/1 will grow
    back.

  • Hair loss is my mother's genes to blame, is this true?

    This is partly correct and partly wrong. Although the main baldness gene is inherited from
    your mother's side, baldness occurs due to a combination of several genes inherited from
    both sides and is not attributed to just one gene.

  • Is it true that if I use Propecia my hair will become 'addicted' to it?

    Propecia takes around 3-6 months to give results, and results will be visible for up to 5
    years.

    However, since Propecia is a 'treatment' for hair loss and not a 'cure' as discussed before,
    if you stop using it, conversion of Testosterone to DHT will resume, which means hair loss
    will occur again within 6-12 months.
