If you are experiencing hair loss, male pattern baldness or thinning hair, you are not alone!
Male pattern baldness is the most common form of men's hair loss throughout the world.
It has the universal effect of lowering men's self esteem, loss of confidence and prematurely aging your appearance – often by 10 years or more.

» "Male pattern baldness" is medically known as Andro-genetic Alopecia. Andro is derived from androgen, i.e any of the various hormones that control the appearance and development of masculine characteristics. Genetic male pattern baldness is inherited from either your mother or your father. Either may carry the dominant gene, which triggers hair loss. Couple these ingredients with a particular age when your genetic alarm clock goes off, and male pattern baldness ensues. Fortunately, Transitions offers every form of thinning hair and baldness treatment available today.

» Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) is the hormone directly responsible for male pattern hair baldness. DHT formed by the male hormone, testosterone, binds with an enzyme named alpha five reductase. Men experiencing male pattern hair loss will either have an abundance of this enzyme in the hair follicles in the frontal scalp, or they may have more sensitive follicles than their counterparts with a full head of hair, thus making them more susceptible to thinning hair. Transitions has treatments that help to block the formation of DHT and counteract its effects of thinning hair and ensuing baldness.
Other Causes of Hair Loss
» Stress can also trigger hair loss and cause thinning hair. Stress related hair loss might be reversed by elimination of stress factors. Furthermore, stress can increase the speed of hair loss in people who have a genetic predisposition to thinning hair and male or female pattern baldness. Severe stress, such as the loss of a loved one, severe illness or major surgery, may also lead to hair loss. In addition, anxiety habits, such as hair pulling or scalp rubbing, damages hair follicles. Often, when a person begins to use one of our hair restoration, hair replacement or baldness treatments, their stress levels rapidly decrease because they feel more in control of their lives and more confident in themselves.
» Prescription drugs, chemo and radiation therapies, and diseases can cause thinning hair and complete hair loss. Burns can permanently and deeply damage the exposed skin, causing baldness. Excessive intake of iron or vitamin A becomes toxic to the body and can lead to hair loss. Some illnesses may lead to thinning hair, such as thyroid disease (overactive or under active thyroid gland), ringworm, syphilis, and even high fever. Usually hair regrowth will take place after terminating the medical treatment or overcoming the illness. Always check with your doctor first if thinning hair or hair loss is symptomatic of the illness.
» Inadequate diet such as crash dieting or insufficient protein in a person's diet is another cause of thinning hair. Iron deficiency may also occur and cause thinning hair. The body's protective mechanism will save internal protein by shifting hair into the resting phase. Hair loss will occur two to three months later. Usually new hair growth will be seen again if the person goes back to a healthy diet with adequate amounts of protein.
» Alopecia areata is an illness where half an inch or larger patches of hair fall out in clumps to cause bald spots, and at times progresses to complete hair loss. Men, women and children may experience alopecia areata at any time in their lives. Some start losing hair with bald spots in certain areas and others with thinning hair all over. While there is no agreement on the causes of alopecia areata, most doctors believe that the body's autoimmune system attacks its own hair follicles, causing hair loss. Alopecia totalis and alopecia universalis are extreme cases of this condition. Alopecia totalis is the total hair loss of the scalp. Alopecia universalis is total hair loss of all body hair. Hair regrowth usually is seen within 6 months, but if there is no hair regrowth within a year, then it is unlikely that any hair will ever come back. Transitions Hair has specialised treatments for baldness of this kind. See below for further information.
