Sustainable Hair Retention

It is important to understand as we age our hair characteristics will also change naturally; when younger, later teens generally our hair is at its strongest and not uncommon to change slightly as we enter our early 20´s as men

MPB is generally relatively slow to manifest itself and deciding at what stage to treat hair loss is critical to your long term happiness; with the first signs of thinning if this is something an individual wishes to treat hair loss retention treatments should be the first option

Surgical hair restoration is not necessarily the best option in the initial stages of hair loss and is not a cure; until the hair loss pattern can be better established or the hair loss stabilises a hair transplant should not be considered

Especially at a younger age it is prudent not to panic if some thinning or miniaturising of hair is seen in the temples or generally along the hair line; almost every man will experience this over their lifetime even if MPB does not take an aggressive path

As to whether this will continue into advanced Male Pattern Baldness is a prediction to a great extent, genetically family history can be a guide but only that as the MPB gene can skip generations

The on-set of hair loss normally starts with the temporal regions of the hair line, causing the hair line to become more acute and exposing the temples to give the impression the forehead is larger; the V shaped hair line

The earlier treatment is started the greater chance of maintaining the growth you have; another option is to allow nature to progress and monitor the hair loss and then make a decision as to how best to treat over time

Although there are only 3 FDA approved hair loss treatments and results will vary from person to person it is the logical initial path to take; trying to maintain the hair line and potentially improve upon the weaker hair that is still growing can allow to keep the hair line or at least slow down the pattern of hair loss

The initial use of medications can sustain the growth of your hair for many years without the need for a surgical procedure; when deciding to start a treatment programme is specific to the individual and how severe they see their hair loss
