Why most men start losing their hair
Losing you hair can be very frustrating. We all know that.
But why do men lose their hair…?
Hair loss in men is more commonly known as ‘androgenic thinning’ or male pattern hair loss.
This type of hair loss can be more or less severe. The extent of hair loss can be devided into several stages as shown below:
Figure 1: Male pattern hair loss can be divided into 7 stages besides several subtypes. The Norwood scale is the leading classification system used to measure the extent of male pattern baldness (source).
Most men start losing their hair in the temples and the crown.
The reason why this happens is that the hair in these areas are exposed to a sex hormone called dihydrotestosterone (DHT), with powerful androgenic actions.
When the hair follicles are influenced by DHT, they start to miniaturize.
Miniaturization of hair follicles means that:
- The hairs get smaller and thinner
- The growth phase of the hairs is shortened
- Hair shedding happens faster
- It takes longer time from hair shedding to a new hair starts to grow out
This process is illustrated in the figure below…
The result is hair thinning and can lead to complete male pattern baldness.
Figure 2: The male sex hormone, DHT, results in miniaturization of the hair follicles. In other areas of the scalp such as the back of the head and the sides, the hair follicles are unaffected by DHT. That’s why the hair is preserved in these areas throughout life.
How old you’re when you start to experience androgenic thinning as well as the extent of hair loss is mainly determined by genetics.
Thus, men who are genetically deficient in Type 2 5-alpha-reductase do not develop androgenic hair loss.
Moreover, Type 2 5-alpha-reductase has been detected in scalp hair follicles, and balding scalps contain increased Type 2 5-alpha-reductase activity and DHT levels.
Taken together, these findings provide a rationale for the use of Type 2 5-alpha-reductase inhibitors in the treatment of men with androgenic hair loss.
Now, let’s talk more about finasteride… and the treatment of androgenic baldness.
What is Finasteride?
Finasteride (better known as ‘Propecia’) is one of the few proven medications on the market which is used to treat male pattern hair loss.
Finasteride is a specific and potent inhibitor of Type 2 5-alpha-reductase, which decreases the formation of DHT from testosterone.
What type of hair loss can be treated by Finasteride?
There are many types of hair loss with different symptoms and causes. The most common one, no doubt, is androgenic thinning.
Finasteride works excellent for treating androgenic hair loss in men aged 20-50 years who suffers from:
- Mild to moderate hair loss
In men with extensive hair loss (i.e. Norwood V-VII), hair loss is usually better treated by a hair transplantation and post-operative oral finasteride to stop further hair loss after surgery.
Diffuse thinning in young men, however, can also be treated by Finasteride with excellent results.
How does Finasteride work?
As stated earlier, androgenic thinning is caused by too high concentrations of the male sex hormone, DHT.
DHT is made from testosterone, and the production of DHT is regulated by Type 2 5-alfa-reductase.
Finasteride works by inhibiting the expression of Type 2 5-alfa-reductase.
Hence, Finasteride lowers DHT levels in the scalp, and reduces DHT’s harmful effect on hair follicles.
This is shown in the figure below.
The benefits of Finasteride are that it helps most patients by preventing further hair loss and makes new hairs grow.
The mechanisms of finasteride are:
- Lower the concentration of DHT in the scalp
- Restore the hormonal balance around the hair follicles
- Increase the follicle growth phase
- Increase the thickness of each individual hair so the hair gets thicker.
- Shortens time from hair shedding to new hair growth.
What are the benefits of Finasteride?
Finasteride increases hair growth and makes the hair thicker in most men.
This can be seen by an increase in number of hairs/ cm2, increased hair thickness and increased growth of each individual hair before shedding.
The best results are achieved by combining oral Finasteride with topicals which further stimulate hair growth.
Some of the benefits of oral Finasteride are:
- The treatment is simple and easy to commit to
- Well-tolerated by most patients
- None of few side effects
- Prevents further excessive hair loss and makes the hair grow thicker in most men
When will Finasteride work?
Increased hair thickness can typically be seen after 6-10 months of treatment.
It is important that you continue the treatment on the long run.
We recommend that you take a photograph of your hair each month to monitor the results.
How long should I keep taking Finasteride?
Finasteride lowers the DTH level only as long as it is taken.
If the treatment is stopped, DHT levels will normalize within few days and hair shedding will be obvious within 2-4 months.
Therefore, you should continue the treatment if you’d like the result to last.
Does Finasteride work on hair follicles in other areas than the scalp?
No, not significantly. The Type 2 5-alfa-reductase is mainly present in the scalp area. This means that you should see no increase in hair growth in other body areas.
What is the recommended daily dosage of Finasteride?
The recommended dosage of oral Finasteride is 1-1.25 mg daily.
