Over the years, you expect to lose a few hairs here and there. Although male hair loss is often attributed with age, it might occur earlier than you had expected. You’re not alone. About 25% of men will experience male pattern baldness by the age of 21. If you’re among those who have lost their hair in their 20s, it’s easy to feel insecure about your appearance. If you’ve noticed any of the 5 signs of thinning hair in Chicago, don’t wait to turn back the hands of time using an effective solution.
Signs of Male Hair Loss
Male hair loss can be the result of several issues, like genetics, hormonal changes, or stress. No matter the cause, there are various signs of hair loss. Although they may not always be obvious at first, here are the most common indicators of thinning hair:
- Receding Hairline
As your hair thins, your forehead may appear larger. It may not seem concerning at first, but you’re slowly losing hair near your temples or forehead. Eventually, it can create an M-shaped pattern at the hairline.
- Thinning Crown
Losing hair in the crown area can be difficult to detect until it becomes a big problem. Generally, your hair will feel thinner overall while you may also experience a bit of shedding. Over time, you may see a large bald patch.
- Changes to Hairstyling
As you lose your hair, you might notice it isn’t easy to style it anymore. It may not be the result of ineffective products or a bad haircut. Instead, it could be caused by hair loss.
- Hairs Lying Around
If you see more than your pet’s fur on your clothes or pillowcase, you might be losing more hair than you thought. The average person loses 100-125 hairs per day; however, if you’re noticing more hair on the bathroom counter, in the shower drain, or on your shirt, it might be time to schedule a hair restoration consultation.
- Sunburned Scalp
Your hair is important for more than just aesthetics. It also covers your scalp to protect it from UV rays. If your scalp is more susceptible to a sunburn than in the past, it can be the result of hair loss.
