The Truth About Hair Loss, Why Most Treatments Don’t Work, And What You Can Do To Fix It

A massive 66% of men start to experience some form of hair thinning or loss by the time they hit 35. By age 50, that percentage increases to a whopping 85%. 

That means the “Hair Loss Industry” is big business. In fact, by 2028, it is estimated that 31.52 BILLION dollars will be spent globally on products promising to help with baldness and hair loss.

And it’s no wonder why. Losing your hair at any age is no trivial matter. Studies claim it can erode self-confidence and even undermine a successful career. So when you start to see those follicles fade, it really is time to take action. 

The question is, what do you do? 

There’s a vast array of products on the market making all kinds of bold promises, but who can you trust? Who should you listen to?

If you’ve noticed that your hair is thinning, there’s a good chance you’ve already tried some of the usual suspects. But if you’re like most men, you still feel like you’re losing ground in the hair loss battle.

It’s time to get real about why those common tactics often fail.  

Reason #1: The Dark Side Of Prescription Meds

If you’ve done your research, you’ve probably seen the same names pop up over and over again. Finasteride and dutasteride are 2 of the most common. 

Finasteride works by stopping the sex hormone testosterone from turning into another hormone called dihydrotestosterone (DHT). DHT is responsible for hair loss in men, so less DHT means less balding and even regrowth of hair.

What isn’t so well broadcasted is the long list of very unpleasant side effects associated with finasteride. These can include the inability to perform in the bedroom, reduced sexual desire, problems finishing in the bedroom, breast enlargement, pain in your lower regions, and depression. 

Dutasteride, held up by some as a “miracle cure”, has some equally horrifying potential side effects, including chest pain, dilated neck veins, irregular breathing, swelling, extreme fatigue, and weight gain.

While the risks of very serious side effects are relatively low, many men understandably choose to avoid potential sexual dysfunction and “man boobs”.

And worst of all, if you stop taking these meds, any hair regrowth often reverses course.
