Learn how to handle baldness
By Leah Zerbe, MenвЂ™s Wellness
Whenever a person starts to get bald, a couple of things go down the drainвЂ”his hair and their self-confidence. Some 62 % of balding guys in a Spanish research stated losing their hair could deflate their self-esteem. It isnвЂ™t 21st-century superficiality: вЂњThick hair has long been related to youth and masculinity,вЂќ claims Albert Mannes, Ph.D., a University of Pennsylvania researcher whoвЂ™s learned perceptions of balding. вЂњHair loss signals aging.вЂќ
But hair thinning can be deceiving: Two-thirds of males face hair thinning by age 35, and a negative hereditary hand is often at fault. Male-pattern hair loss is an inherited sensitiveness to dihydrotestosterone (DHT, a by-product of testosterone), that leads to finer locks, a receding hairline, and lastly a deserted head.
