Hair loss might start with an additional few strands of hair in your comb or on your pillow. But eventually, you will find that you tend to lose more and more hair as time flies by.
Understandably, many men have a hard time accepting the fact that they are losing hair. On the flip side, this might prevent them from seeking timely treatments, which will worsen the condition.
As per reports, men spend over a billion every year to fight hair loss. The figure is expected to grow over the years.
Although several treatment options are available for hair loss, it is essential to choose the one that will provide tangible results rather than going behind the ones overinflated by the media.

Hair loss medications
Although there are several available medications for hair loss, the commonly sought ones are Finasteride and Minoxidil.

Medical professionals across the globe use finasteride to successfully treat hair loss in men.
DHT is the hormone that causes thinning of hair follicles. Therefore, by decreasing the amount of DHT, it is possible to reduce hair loss and boost hair growth.

Collagen plays a vital role in promoting hair growth and repairing damaged hair. However, as people tend to age, they naturally tend to lose collagen. Supplementing collagen can help the hair to regain the lost vigour and strength.
This option is chosen by those for whom all the above treatment methods have failed. In this method, hair follicles that are highly resistant to DHT are surgically removed from the back portion of the head and implanted into the areas of hair loss.
Unlike other methods, if a person has lost a considerable portion of hair, it will help to give a natural look. However, multiple treatments are necessary to restore the look, and there is a risk of infection.
The real reason for hair loss in men has baffled researchers worldwide, as the pattern is almost similar in people across the globe belonging to various ethnicities.
