    Do you ever wonder where that full head of hair from the past has gone? And what remains of it if your hair continues to fall out? Then you are certainly not alone. Unfortunately, hair loss in men is common. More than 70% of men will experience hair loss or baldness at some point. And for more than 50% of men, this happens before they are 50 years old. About 30% of men are not even 30 years old when their hair is already thinning. This makes hair loss in men a very natural phenomenon. But of course that doesn't mean it's easy to accept.

    For many men, thinning hair causes frustration and feelings of powerlessness. Hair loss creates a negative self-image and affects self-confidence. You may also be wondering: 'Is there anything that can be done about hair loss?'. We will answer that question in this blog. But first, we will take a closer look at the causes of hair loss in men.

    Hair loss and balding are not the same. We lose about 100 to 150 hairs every day. It is only when you notice that you are losing more hair than normal that you have excessive hair loss. You notice that your hair is thinning. Your scalp may be easier to see through your hair. Or you will have inlets that were not there before. These are signs that there is more going on. In order to look at possible treatment, it is first necessary to discover what the cause of the hair loss is. This may involve:

    Androgenetic alopecia

    Does your hair fall out quite gradually? And does that mainly happen at the front (inlets) and on top (crown) of your head? Then there may be androgenetic alopecia. This is a hereditary form of hair loss that mainly occurs in men. Androgenetic alopecia is not a disease and is the most common form of hair loss in men. This involves hypersensitivity of the hair follicles to the male hormone dihydrotestosterone.

    Alopecia areata

    Alopecia areata is an autoimmune disease. Are you suddenly losing large chunks of hair in random places on your head and are these places round in shape? Then it could be alopecia areata. This disease is not common, only 1.7% of the population suffers from it.

    Telogen effluvium

    Telogen effluvium occurs regularly and is associated with extensive hair loss. The hair loss starts suddenly and in most cases is preceded by a stressful period. The stress can have various causes. Maybe you recently lost your job. Or were you seriously ill, but are now doing better? Telogen effluvium usually lasts about 6 months and goes away on its own.

    Vitamin deficiency

    The hair needs sufficient nutrients to grow healthily and stay in good condition. Are you not consuming enough healthy food? Or is there a change in your diet or a medical condition that is preventing your body from absorbing enough vitamins? These insufficiencies and shortages can make your hair thin and brittle, causing it to break and fall out quickly.

    Unhealthy lifestyle

    A healthy lifestyle is extremely important to keep your body in good and healthy condition. This is no different for your hair. An unhealthy diet, a strict diet, smoking, too little exercise and too much stress can all cause hair to thin and new hair to not grow properly. A healthy lifestyle is therefore also very important for your hair.

    Treatments or medications

    Some medications have hair loss or thinning hair as a side effect. In addition, the treatment of a disease or condition can also cause hair to fall out and make you temporarily bald. Consider chemotherapy in the treatment of cancer.


    Hair loss and thinning hair in men is common. Of course, that doesn't make it any less annoying. Fortunately, in many cases, there is something that can be done about it.

    To combat hair loss in men it is important to:

    Use the right care products

    Your hair and scalp have to endure a lot every day. Due to the products you use, but also due to, for example, the UV radiation from the sun. That is why it is important to use care products that, in addition to the hair, also care for the scalp. At Mediceuticals we have products that help reduce excessive hair loss and thinning hair in men. The Advanced Hair Restoration Technology line has been specifically developed to treat excessive hair loss and thinning hair. The products are suitable for fine, normal and dry hair and can also be purchased as a package for a complete treatment of your hair and scalp.

    Healthy eating

    To keep your hair in the best possible condition for as long as possible, it is very important to eat healthy. Stop smoking and moderate your alcohol intake and eat plenty of fruit, vegetables, proteins and whole grain products. Are you unable to get enough vitamins from your diet? You may consider taking an additional nutritional supplement.

    Plenty to drink

    To prevent thinning hair, a hydrated scalp is extremely important. You can hydrate by drinking enough water every day. One third of your body weight in deciliters is a good guideline to adhere to.

    Discuss concerns with a doctor

    Are you taking medications that cause your hair to thin? Then it is a good idea to discuss this with your doctor. Especially if you have to take these medications for a long time. It may be possible to switch to another medicine that will give you fewer side effects.

    Avoid stress

    Stress can accelerate hair loss in men. A very stressful situation that continues for a long time can even cause telegenic effluvium. It is therefore advisable to avoid stress as much as possible. That is not always easy, but you may benefit from meditation or mindfulness.

    Exercise regularly

    One way to indirectly combat hair loss is sufficient exercise. It contributes to a healthy lifestyle and also helps to combat stress.


    A large majority of men will experience hair loss and baldness at some point. That's not exactly a cheerful prospect. Fortunately, you don't have to passively watch your hair get thinner. By taking timely action it is possible to slow down hair loss. It is important not to wait too long before treatment. The sooner you stop hair loss, the longer you can enjoy your full head of hair.
