THE BALD TRUTH
Learn more about the causes of hair loss
and what you can do to prevent it.
Pattern Baldness, also known as androgenetic alopecia, is the most common form of hair loss. And it happens earlier than anyone expects. In fact, 2 out of 3 guys will experience some form of MPB by the time they’re 35. Even with today’s advancements in science, there’s still no known cure. The good news? There are proven treatments that can combat the symptoms.
IN CASE YOU WERE WONDERING
Things that do not cause hair loss
Genetics often serves as the primary factor behind hair loss, although it's important to note that it can be inherited from either parent's side. Recent research has identified as many as 287 genetic regions that contribute to male pattern baldness. However, external factors can also influence hair loss. For instance, using chemical dyes or relaxers that are harsh on the hair can aggravate the condition. Additionally, stress or an imbalanced diet may contribute to further hair loss.
Good news. There are two safe and effective formulas — minoxidil and finasteride — that are FDA-approved for preventing hair loss. Depending on whether you have a receding hairline, balding at the crown, or overall hair loss, your provider may recommend one or both of these treatments.
In addition, Keeps offers a prescription shampoo to help clear your head of any dandruff, itching, or flakiness that can prevent your hair from looking as good as possible.
While finasteride and minoxidil tend to provide great results for most guys, some may still be looking for a way to further boost their hair regrowth or a permanent solution to hair loss altogether. The two procedures offered by Keeps Hair Restoration (KHR) can help here. We offer the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) hair transplant and Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) procedures at our NYC studio.
