Learn more about how you can have stronger, healthier hair.
It’s inevitable that most men will experience hair thinning and hair loss as they age. This is down to a time triggered inherited condition called Male Pattern Baldness or “Androgenetic Alopecia” (when hair follicles are sensitive to the action of Androgens).
Male Pattern Baldness is noticeable by a receding hairline; thinning hair at the temples and/or in the crown area. Unfortunately, this genetic predisposition can be passed down from either parent and usually begins during a male’s late teen years and early twenties. By the time a man reaches his thirties Male Pattern Baldness will be well on its way to eventual baldness.
At Clive Hair Clinics we can help keep Male Pattern Baldness in control by strengthening weak hairs and promoting new growth. We recommend early action to all our male clients for the best results. If baldness has already been reached, nothing can be done to reverse the hair loss as
Male Pattern Baldness is an inherited condition from either parent and cannot be cured, but can be delayed with treatment.
However hair loss can be compounded and made worse by factors such as stress, poor diet, tension of the skin crownal area and scalp disorders.
Stress in men can promote enzyme activity within cells and stimulate testosterone production, mainly from the adrenal (stress) glands. Monitor your stress levels or ask a Trichologist for help in assisting your body to deal with stress. In general, anything unusual experienced by the body can cause stress.
Pituitary or adrenal gland disorders can also trigger androgen levels to increase. Appropriate tests should identify the cause which can then be corrected.
Hair Mineral Analysis
Due to a poor diet, high levels of toxins can accumulate at the hair roots and intensify hair thinning. We offer extensive hair analysis tests that provide indicators of nutritional and mineral deficiencies and possible toxicities. The results of a hair mineral analysis are used by our Trichologists to provide a treatment programme designed specifically for you.
Drug Free Treatments
We use natural Di-hydro-testosterone blockers that can reduce the rate of hair loss. Di-hydro-testosterone (DHT) is a chemical messenger found in our body that sends messages to follicle cells in our hair roots telling them to “STOP PRODUCTION”. If this message is continually repeated these hair cells will stop participating in growing hair.
Our natural DHT blockers are drug free and are found in our exclusive Kankho range of products. We also recommend Pro-Anagen capsules containing the extract Saw Palmetto, a natural alternative to decrease DHT in hair roots and assist hair growth. Pro-Anagen also complements the effectiveness of our Kankho products.
We recommend natural topical blockers including vitamin B6, zinc and azelaic acid.
Consultation With A Trichologist
If you think you are suffering from Male Pattern Baldness we strongly recommend a consultation with our Trichologists for an expert diagnosis.
