10 reasons men experience hair loss

If you think your hairline is receding every time you look in the mirror, you’re not alone. More than half of men 50 or older have signs of hair loss. It reaches 4 out of 5 men by age 70.

Why? It's usually something you can blame on your family tree, but there are several other possible reasons.

  1. Genetics: Male pattern baldness is the most common cause of hair loss in men and is thought to be inherited from the mother's side of the family.

  2. Age: As men age, their hair may thin and become more brittle.

  3. Hormonal imbalances: An imbalance of testosterone and other hormones can lead to hair loss.

  4. Medical conditions: Certain medical conditions, such as alopecia areata, lichen planus, and thyroid disease, can cause hair loss.

  5. Nutrient deficiency: A deficiency in certain nutrients, such as protein, iron, and zinc, can lead to hair loss.

  6. Medications: Some medications, such as those used to treat cancer, depression, and high blood pressure, can cause hair loss as a side effect.

  7. Physical stress: Physical stress, such as a high fever or surgery, can cause temporary hair loss.

  8. Emotional stress: Chronic stress can lead to hair loss.

  9. Tight hairstyles: Hairstyles that place a lot of strain on the hair shaft, such as ponytails and braids, can lead to hair loss.

  10. Environmental factors: Exposure to harsh chemicals or extreme weather conditions can lead to hair loss.
