Hair loss in Men

YELASI help men across Europe regain hair growth and fullness. But how do they do it? And, what actually works? In this guide, we cover the causes of male hair loss and give advice on growing hair naturally. 

Firstly, hair loss is common.

It may ease your worries to learn that hair loss is one of the most common issues that effects men worldwide. This does not mean, however, that the symptoms of hair loss are any less impactful for men experiencing it. 

It is important to understand that natural hair growth can be encouraged and that simply ‘putting up’ with losing your hair, is a thing of the past.

How likely is it that men will experience hair loss?

Around 35% of men aged 18-60 will experience a form of hair loss at some point in their life.

At aged 30-60, the likelihood increases to around 65%.

Signs of hair loss

The signs of male hair loss can be challenging to identify during the beginning stages. However, there are indicators. Gradual hair loss appears over time and presents itself as a slowly receding hairline at the forehead or a horseshoe pattern that exposes the crown of the head.

Clumps of hair that suddenly come away from your scalp when you sleep, move, or wash your hair can indicate a form of alopecia.

Rather than waiting until the signs of hair loss are significant, speak to a YELASAI expert who can identify the symptoms and recommend appropriate support. The earlier the hair loss concern is identified, the easier it can be to care for.

What causes male hair loss?

According to Ayurveda, hair loss is the result of an imbalance in the body. When our inner workings are shifted, natural cycles are disrupted which can impact the growth of hair. 

Unlike popular medicine, Ayurveda cares for hair loss through a natural and holistic approach. YELASAI focus not just on the symptoms of hair loss, but also on the root causes of such symptoms. 

Common causes of imblance:

  • Puberty and ageing 

  • Inappropriate hair care and washing

  • Tension in the neck and head

  • Stress and lack of sleep

  • Lack of nutrition or rapid weight loss

  • Underlying medical conditions

  • Genetics

Hair loss concerns and how to care for them naturally

Hereditary hair loss – Androgenetic Alopecia

Androgenetic Alopecia is a gradual, progressive form of alopecia. It can often begin in amn's early twenties or thirties and causes loss of hair on the crown and at the temples. The condition is often referred to as ‘male-pattern baldness’, as the hair fades in an ‘M’ pattern, receding at the temples, scalp and back of head. 

This type of gradual hair loss can also begin during teenage years. Hormonal changes that occur in male puberty cause an increase in the hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT).

As DHT increases, other chemicals that are responsible for fuelling growth in the scalp are prevented from reaching the top of the head. Although Hereditary hair loss is something that can be passed down through genetics, it is a common misconception that it cannot be prevented or escaped. 

Is there a cure?

Designed by experts, our products fuel the scalp and skin with the nutrition it needs to rejuvenate itself. YELASAI products help to build sustainable hair growth cycles and can combat genetic hair challenges.

Circular Hair loss – Alopecia Areata

Alopecia Areata can appear quickly and worsen within a short amount of time. Its symptoms appear as bald patches or ‘circular spots’ across the scalp and beard. Hence the name, Circular hair loss. Circular hair loss occurs suddenly, as opposed to a gradual thinning that is present over many years. 

The definite causes of Alopecia Areata are unknown, but medical researchers and doctors believe that it is a result of the immune system attacking hair follicles. Factors such as medications, stress, nutrition, sleep deprivation, and traumatic events can cause imbalance and trigger Alopecia Areata. 

As an imbalance occurs, hair follicles are inappropriately targeted and the natural cycle of hair loss is disrupted, which causes hair to thin and fall out. Stress and influencing factors can push roots into their ‘resting’ phase and cause hair to temporarily stop growing. 

CARING FOR CIRCULAR HAIR LOSS:

The imbalances that cause inflammation to the hair follicles under the skin can be restored with consistency and care. If you are experiencing alopecia, we recommend seeking the support of a professional consultant. Our Hair Active Experts offer a discreet and informative service to help men accurately diagnose their symptoms and navigate a support plan. Book a consultation now

Total Hair Loss - Alopecia Totalis

Alopecia Totalis is referred to as ‘Total hair loss’ as it causes complete baldness of the scalp. It can occur rapidly within a matter of days or weeks and can cause a significant amount of hair loss. Bald patches caused by circular hair loss can join together to form larger bald patches, which can result in a case of total hair loss.  

If you are experiencing sudden hair loss, we recommend seeking the support of a professional to appropriately diagnose and care for the condition. Our experts are successful in restoring hair growth across salons in Europe. 

Alopecia Universalis - Unlike other forms of Alopecia, Alopecia Universalis is characterised by the complete hair loss on the head and body. Our products encourage growth at home and our experts are at hand to optimise support. 

 


Preventing hair loss in men

  • Use hair products specifically designed to promote and sustain growth

  • Use suitable products as early as possible - Swap teenage hair care for natural and growth-stimulating alternatives

  • Brush the scalp daily with a boar brush or wooden brush to distribute sebum

  • Introduce vitamins and minerals into your diet

  • Avoid synthetics and chemicals that cause further imbalance
