Hair loss is a very common problem for both men and women. Embarrassment is one of the major factors associated with hair loss, as many people believe that when they begin to lose their hair they become less attractive.
The ‘comb-over’ is a notorious hairstyle worn by many men in order to cover their bald patch. The hair is grown long on one side of the head and then combed over to hide the bald area. The ‘comb-over’ dates back for many years and is sometimes still employed by men of a certain age. Luckily for people who experience hair loss now, there are a number of modern ways to combat this issue without needing to resort to the comb-over.
The root cause of hair loss in men lies within the scalp, which comprises small sacks known as hair follicles which are under the skin surface. The hair grows from these follicles for few years and then they shed, making way for new ones to grow. This normal pattern of hair growth is hampered by the shrinking of hair follicles because of their sensitivity to dihydrotestosterone (DHT). As a result, the affected hair follicles shrink to such a size that they are not able to sustain hair and even grow new hair.
Some people with hair loss problems take extreme measures to overcome this issue. One of the most extreme measures that men and women choose is hair transplant surgery, which is sometimes very risky and can cause complications.
Generally, if you look at laser combs such as the HairMax comb, they are convenient and easy-to-use. The advantages surely overshadow the disadvantages, which is the reason why an increasing amount of people prefer to use a laser comb over a hair transplant surgery.
