Men's Hair Loss TreatmentA head has about 100,000 to 150,000 hair and each hair grows from a sac like structures called follicle. In fact, what we see as a hair is the shaft of the hair and its part that lies deep beneath the skin is the root. Interestingly both the shaft and the root are nothing but a dead appendage of the skin; the only living part is the follicle below the skin and surrounding the root. The follicle is nourished by blood & nerve supply in a junction area called 'papilla'.
Most of the hair problems are the repercussions at follicle level, by causative factors in any of our functional organs.
FAQs about Men's Hair Loss
1. How does the hair grow and why do we lose them?
A head has between 100,000 and 150,000 hair. Each hair grows up to 0.4 mm in a day (multiply 0.4 mm with 150,000 to have 50 meters or more of hair growth every day. Vow! ). A hair may grow up to 7 years to reach a length of over one meter. People whose hair can grow up to ten or more years can have hair up to the floor.

Yes, the patterns are generally very different but do have their similarities. In female pattern baldness, hair is most commonly lost on the top of the scalp while sparing a rim of hair along the front border. In women, only 12% will show any temporal thinning, while in men this is seen in over 80% as one of the fit signs of loss. Like men, the crown in women may thin but the loss is highly variable. Crown thinning in men or women is considered one of the patterns of hair loss associated with the balding gene and androgens.
