Lost and Found: Is Losing Hair Daily a Sign of Male-Patterned Baldness?

Even if you seem to be cleaning out loose strands of hair from your shower drain more than usual, there is still a silver lining: it may be too early to diagnose yourself with male-patterned baldness just yet.

Male-patterned baldness (or androgenetic alopecia if you want to impress your dinner date with a fancy new word) is the most common form of hair loss in men – in fact, about 95% of all hair loss in men is attributed to this pesky little disease.

If you find that you are shedding your mane at a rapid rate — well, there is good news and bad news:

The Good:
Depending on your age, lifestyle, and your hair’s growth cycle, we all lose between 40 to 120 strands per day. With male-patterned baldness, the issue is not losing the hair – the problem lies in the inability to grow it back.

The Bad:
The only way to know for sure if you are indeed suffering from male-patterned baldness is time, so before you go mourning the loss of your locks to the teeth of your hairbrush, it’s best to face the facts.  According to the North American Hair Research Society, as many as 50% of men are affected by male-patterned hair loss by the time they reach 50, with hair loss beginning as early as puberty – and you thought all you had to worry about your awkward existence at that age.

If your patience is wearing thin (much like your hair), there are treatments that can help defy the cruel prank that Mother Nature has played on you.

For some OTC help, studies show that there is a 45% increase in hair thickness when using Rogaine’s 5% solution, with re-growth occurring as early as two months after starting treatment. For some big-time follicle stimulation, prescription-strength Propecia is the only medication available for male-patterned baldness. If instant gratification is more your speed, you can always shell out the bigger bucks for a hair transplant.

Then again, there are always hats…
