Non-Medical Treatments for Male Hair Loss


Hair loss can be a tough problem to deal with, especially for younger men. Fortunately, these day there is not the negative stigma surrounding male pattern baldness and hair loss and many men, even those with full heads of hair are choosing to go completely bald.

We have a young guy who works in our barber salon who just turned 18, but his hairline is middle-aged. He has chosen to not fight nature and shave his head completely and the look works quite well on him. For those of us who are thinning and not lucky enough to have the right dome for a bald head, following are a few non-medical treatment options to consider.

Cut it Short
As someone with a bit of male pattern baldness myself, I have chosen to simply keep very short haircut and recommend this to my clients as the best option for dealing with hair loss. The rule of thumb is this: if you see scalp on top, cut the sides short enough to expose an equal amount of scalp. This will help balance out your coverage and minimize the appearance of balding.
Growing hair out or combing it over never works.

Mess it Up
Applying a small amount of light product such as a American Crew's Light Hold Texture Lotion or light gel and tossing the hair around on top can add texture and help make the balding area less noticeable.

Turn Up the Volume
Volumizing shampoos and conditioners can add thickness by lifting the cuticle and swelling the hair shaft. Look for a conditioner that specifically states that it is "weightless" and follow the instructions carefully. Always use a light styling product to avoid weighing the hair down. A blow dryer can be used to dry the hair and add volume as well.

Look Healthy
A trim, fit body and healthy skin can do wonders for your appearance. If you can't have great hair, make everything else look as good as it can from the clothes to the tan.

Buy a Rug
Just don't buy a cheap rug. Burt Reynolds got it right - everybody knows it's a piece, but it looks so good the hair piece does not distract from his appearance. A good hair piece will cover your baldness, but it's difficult to pull off around people who already know you are bald. Never opt for an inexpensive hair piece. People can spot a bad rug from a mile away. Also keep in mind that no hair piece should be sutured to the scalp due to the risk of scarring and infection.

Turn on the Laser
Laser therapy devices, such as the HairMax LaserComb have been successful for some patients. These devices claim to reverse hair loss by energizing hair follicles and promote growth. The HairMax comb has been cleared by the FDA for the promotion of hair growth.

I believe it is always best to keep yourself looking great by staying healthy and working with your barber or stylist to create a style that works well with what you've got. If you are looking for additional options for treating hair loss.
