Guys! Why do we loose our hair?

Hair loss affects everyone to varying degrees at some point in their lives – understanding the causes is the first step to tackling the problem for yourself!

Many people experience hair loss, but most people don’t talk about it, or even know the reason why their hair is falling, thinning, or disappearing. It’s a hard struggle to think or talk about, and even harder to come to terms with.

The good news is that you are not alone! Hair loss affects millions of people worldwide.

Male and female pattern baldness is exactly what it says, loosing hair and balding in a pattern usually starting from the hairline receding moving to thinning of the crown and develop right through to complete loss of hair.

Male pattern baldness can begin as early as your teens or twenties. It may proceed very slowly or happen relatively quickly with a lot of hair loss over just a few years.

Male pattern baldness typically occurs in the following stages, as classified by the Norwood-Hamilton scale:



About 2 out of 3 men will suffer hair loss by age 60, and the most common culprit is male pattern baldness. Caused by male sex hormones and a combination of genes, it usually causes hair to recede in a defined pattern, beginning above both temples. Hair at the crown also starts to thin and gradually progresses to balding.


Hypothyroidism is known as having an underactive thyroid gland. Located in the neck, this gland produce hormones crucial to metabolism, growth, and development. When the thyroid gland does not produce enough hormones (due to an underlying health reason), hair loss slowly develops. Hypothyroidism is very common, and if left untreated continued hair loss can occur.

Hair loss may be attributed to a poor diet. Besides internal health reasons, there are some foods that cause follicular challenges, especially if consumed beyond the norm.


Fried Foods

Foods High in Vitamin A

lack of vitamin B


Physical and emotional stress can result in hair loss. Any traumatic physical event (car accident, pregnancy, severe illness, etc.)

A traumatic event, can shock the normal hair cycle. Your hair follicles themselves can literally go into shock! sometimes laying dormant, other times completely dying.

Emotional stress is less likely to cause hair loss than physical stress, but it can also play a part and exacerbate a problem that’s already present.


We all want to look good! but using too many products and heat, it can lead to root damage and hair fall. Heat-driven hair styling tools, harsh chemical-induced products, or tightly tied/pinned hairstyles are often bad for the hair over long periods of time.


This is a tough one! of course looking after yourself from the inside out is important for everyone! So it is really important that if you notice your hair starting to thin or fall out, to ensure you're receiving the right nutrients, especially iron, vitamin B and Vitamin C, either by food or supplements.

Treat your hair with kindness! repetitive miss treatment of your hair can result in traction alopecia (bald patches if hair is worn up too much) or weak hair that breaks.

Visiting your Drs and requesting your bloods to be taken can help determine if your hairloss is a nutrient deficiency or a hormonal imbalance.

Sadly for many, hairloss is just something that you will need to eventually come to terms with.

The good news is you don't have to live with it! There are so many effective solutions to either help stimulate you hair to grow back, transplanting donor hair into bald areas, plasma therapy, laser and of course scalp micropigmentation!

Scalp micropigmentation can be used as a stand alone treatment or in combination with another treatment!

Make sure you do your research to find the right solution for you and your wallet!
