Hair loss in men is often a worrying and frustrating time. A lot of men lose confidence, worrying about how they look and how other people view them.

If you’ve recently noticed that you’re losing your hair, or more than one person has made a comment about you going a little thin on top, it’s important that you don’t panic. There are a number of reasons for why this could be happening.

Here are 7 of the most common causes of hair loss in men.


1. Male hormones play a huge part in hair loss.



Hormonal imbalances within the body can lead to hair loss.


2. Genes can be the reason behind hair loss in men.



Androgenetic Alopecia is inherited from family. Hair loss is gradual and increases as you get older.


3. Stress can play havoc on your body.



Severe stress can lead to telogen effluvium. This is a condition where more than a normal amount of hair falls out.


4. Tight hairstyles are unhealthy for the hair.



Hairstyles such as the ‘man bun’ put stress on the hair and cause hair loss. Give your hairline a break now and then.


5. Poor Diet leads to poor hair quality.



Without certain nutrients, vitamins and minerals, your hair will fall out. It’s important to eat a sufficient amount of protein.


6. Certain medications have commonly been linked to hair loss.



Some medication lists hair loss as a possible side effect. These include blood thinners, vitamin A supplements and antidepressants.


7. Health conditions have been responsible for hair loss in men



Health conditions like thyroid disease have previously been linked to hair loss. If your thyroid gland is under or over active, it could cause excessive hair loss. Although, men are less likely to have thyroid trouble than women are.
