50 Million Americans Suffering Hair Loss In Silence! - Articles Surfing
My Hair Is Thinning!
If your hair has started to thin out, take heart. You can do something about it. There are more options available than ever before to prevent and treat hair loss and thinning hair. A vast number of prescription medications have been scientifically shown to slow down, even reverse, hair loss. Newer, over-the-counter potions offer hope, too, when before there was none. What's more, huge advances have been made in surgical procedures, such as hair transplantation and scalp reduction, to help restore your hair to its former crowning glory.
How Long Does Your Hair Survive?
Each individual hair survives for an average of 4-1/2 years, during which time it grows about half an inch a month. Usually in its 5th year, the hair falls out and is replaced within 6 months by a new one. Genetic baldness is caused by the body's failure to produce new hairs and not by excessive hair loss.
50 Million Men Suffering Hair Loss!
Male pattern hair loss affects nearly 50 million men in the United States, says the American Academy of Dermatology. Approximately 20 percent of the white male population experiences hair loss in their 20s. That percentage rate increases by 10 points for every decade. Other authoritative sources say that 3 in 5 men will be affected by male pattern baldness by the time they reach their 50s.
If you go about your everyday life and take the time to observe hair loss patterns in men, you'll notice that most men have some degree of frontal hair loss and temple hair loss. While making this observation, you'll notice that it is almost a rarity to see men with no frontal hair loss at all. See http://HairCare.hairlossfact.info.
Hair Loss: Diet Considerations
Hair loss may also occur due to dieting. Franchised diet programs which are designed or administered under the direction of a physician with prescribed meals, dietary supplements and vitamin ingestion have become popular. Sometimes the client is told that vitamins are a necessary part of the program to prevent hair loss associated with dieting. From a dermatologist's standpoint, however, the vitamins cannot prevent hair loss associated with rapid, significant weight loss. Furthermore, many of these supplements are high in vitamin A which can magnify the hair loss.
Avoiding Hair Loss Tips
1. Use mild shampoos and conditioners made from natural ingredients.
Both men and women tend to lose hair thickness and amount as they age. Inherited or "pattern baldness" affects many more men than women. About 25% of men begin to bald by the time they are 30 years old, and about two-thirds are either bald or have a balding pattern by age 60.
