The following are some reasons for hair loss in men…
Alopecia-Hair follicles are mistakenly attacked by a person’s own immune system. It can be a small bald patch or complete body loss. Alopecia is characterized in various stages know as Alopecia Areata, Alopecia Universalis and Alopecia Totalis.
Alopecia Areata is the start of hair loss. This condition does not affect the whole scalp, but rather starts out more localized to one area of the scalp. The hair loss that accompanies Alopecia Areata typically has an appearance to a circle and is soft to the touch. There could be one area on the head that has hair loss or it can be small amounts of hair loss throughout a person’s scalp.
Alopecia Totalis is when a person loses all of their hair on their scalp. A person could start out having total hair loss on their head or they can start out with Alopecia Areata and then it can start to cause the majority of hair on a person’s scalp to completely thin and fall out.
Alopecia Universalis is the loss of all hair on the scalp and body. Just like in the cases of Alopecia Totalis, a person can start out with slight hair loss on their scalp and then it can begin to affect a person’s full body. Unfortunately, this is the most severe type of alopecia a person can have.
Chemotherapy and Radiation Hair Loss-Powerful chemotherapy drugs can attack your hair roots and cause a little hair loss or total hair loss on your scalp and body. Not all chemotherapy medications cause total hair loss. The extent of your hair loss while taking chemotherapy medications depends on the person’s dosage of their medicine. Sometimes if the chemotherapy medication does not cause total hair loss, but rather more sporadic hair loss a person may end up deciding to shave their head so that they can get a hair treatment such as a wig that can help make them feel and look more natural. When a person has hair loss due to chemotherapy typically once their treatments are finished their hair begins to grow back and they can eventually not have to wear their wig or go through their hair treatment. This is more of a temporary fix to help the person continue to have a more normal appearance while they are going through their rough time of chemotherapy. Sometimes a person’s health insurance will help with the cost that comes with buying wigs or hair treatments, so that is something to look into to help with the cost.
Fine Thinning Hair-Both Physical and Emotional Stress can play a rule in the fine limp hair. Hormone Imbalances, Thyroid Disorders, Deficiencies, Disease and Genetics also can play a rule in hair loss.
Male Pattern Baldness– Many men experience this type of hair loss in their lifetime. The hair follicle shrinks overtime, resulting in shorter and finer hair. This can be caused by aging or a family history of male patterned baldness. Not only does aging and family history play a big role in this type of hair loss, but testosterone levels can cause Male pattern balding. Typically, with this type of hair loss, men will notice that the hair on the top of their scalp will start to fall out, but they will continue to grow hair on the sides and back of their scalp.
Trichotillomania-is a disorder that involves irresistible urges to pull out hair from different parts of your body such as your scalp, eyebrows or other areas of your body. For some people, it may be mild and manageable and for others very compulsive and overwhelming.

The donor hair is removed from the back and sides and is transplanted to the front and top of the scalp. As long as the patient has sufficient donor hair, a transplant will be successful. This process can be very expensive and have no guarantees.
