Whether we like it or not, hair loss is a fact of life for many men in the UK. While many men are quite philosophical about the topic and simply allow it to happen, others aren’t so keen to allow their hairline to disappear. If you fall into this second category, you might be wondering how to know when your hair loss has reached a point at which a hair loss treatment might be necessary. Here are three signs to look out for.
1. Your hairline has receded and the hair has less volume
All men will experience some form of receding hairline as they age, so a higher hairline doesn’t necessarily mean you need hair replacement. That said, if you’re below middle age, have been tracking your hairline for a while, and are still convinced that it’s receding faster than it should be, a hair transplant consultation can be a great idea. Another key indicator is that the hair feels thinner when you run your hand through it, with less overall volume.
2. You’re noticing hair on your pillow and in the shower
If you’ve ever showered, looked down, then noticed an excessive amount of hair on the floor of the shower, this could be a sign of hair loss. If so, you could be an ideal candidate for hair replacement. You may also find lost hair on your pillow and when you brush it. Most men in the UK will lose some hair this way, but a large amount is a warning sign. Luckily, if you’re considering a hair transplant, London (and the UK in general) is the ideal location to find a solution.
3. Your hair is thinning, but you don’t have a “bald patch” yet
Here’s something that many men don’t consider: catching thinning hair early can be a great way to stave off baldness (or slow it down). You may not have a full-blown bald patch just yet, but thinner hair – or a small area where the scalp is more visible – is a sure sign that you’re balding. If this is the case, at least having a hair transplant consultation might be the right choice for you.
