Why is my hair falling out?

Male pattern baldness

You're not alone. Male pattern baldness (MPB), or androgenic alopecia, is extremely common. It affects up to 30% of men by the age of 30 and 50% of men by the age of 50.

The causes


Don't just blame mum

There is definitely a strong genetic component to going bald. Many guys point the finger at their mother's male relatives. This is probably unfair, as paternal genetics have just as much of a role to play.

The love/hate hormone

DHT is a necessary hormone for male development, but it's the culprit that's causing you to lose your hair. Treating hair loss isn't as simple as wiping out your body's DHT, because you need that androgen for other functions.

Lifestyle causes

🍷 Alcohol

People who drink more than the recommended number of standard drinks a day risk balding.

💪 Anabolic steroids

Yes, you guessed it. Steroids cause hair loss (and manboobs).

🚬 Smoking

Men who smoke are twice as likely to be bald.

Other causes

Underlying issues

Apart from age and family history, certain medical conditions, such as diabetes and lupus are also factors. If you have either of these you should visit your GP regularly.

Luck of the draw

Sometimes the cause of your hair loss is unknown and is just bad luck. A combination of unlucky genetics and environmental factors all play a role.

The treatments

Oral treatments

DHT Blockers
  • Most effective for preventing further hair loss
  • Suppresses as much as 70% of DHT.
  • These work for 9/10 males.
  • Some guys experience results as fast as three months, but it could take as much as a year.

Proven to help prevent testosterone conversion to DHT. This is a natural supplement that is complementary with DHT blockers & the spray.

Other treatments

  • Widening blood vessels, allowing more blood (full of oxygen and nutrients) to your hair follicles.
  • 1/3 of guys experience regrowth using the spray.
  • You should see results between three and six months, although results do vary

Isn't as effective as DHT blockers or the Spray, but it's a useful tool to add to your arsenal. For best results, use it like a shampoo (massage in and leave on your scalp for 5-10 minutes) about twice a week.
