What Causes Hair Loss?

Hair loss, known medically as alopecia, has many causes. The most common type is male pattern baldness (androgenic alopecia). This means that you have genes running in your family that cause your hair follicles to shrink and stop producing hair. The first sign is usually the classic bald spot on the top of the head or a receding hairline.

Another cause can be when your immune system attacks your own hair follicles, a condition called alopecia areata, where hair loss can occur not only on the head but also on the eyebrows and eyelashes. Hair can grow back but if it does not, you might need to consider hair loss treatment. 

What are the Different Types of Hair Loss?

The main types include:

  • Androgenic alopecia
  • Alopecia areata
  • Telogen effluvium
  • Anagen effluvium
  • Tinea capitis
  • Traction alopecia

With so many different causes, it may not be so straightforward to figure out what type of hair loss you have. If you are experiencing unexplained hair loss that is sudden or patchy or notice more hair than usual in your hairbrush or sink, our doctors are just a free online consult away.

Thinning at the crown

Largely due to genetic reasons, many men experience this classic symptom. For best results, we recommend a finasteride + minoxidil combo.

Receding Hairline

Often the earliest sign of hair loss, hairline recession is best tackled early. For guys who want to reclaim more of their forehead, we recommend a finasteride + minoxidil combo.

What Treatment Options Exist for Hair Loss?

Since there are so many causes of hair loss, the best treatment will depend on the cause. Fortunately, effective Health Canada recommended treatments exist for the most common form of hair loss, male pattern hair loss.

Topical minoxidil (the active ingredient in Rogaine®) is a Health Canada approved treatment for male pattern hair loss. It is applied to the scalp and works by enhancing hair growth and reducing hair loss. Men typically see results in about 3 to 6 months. Topical minoxidil is available without a prescription – simply add to cart to begin your journey of follicular fortitude.

Finasteride (the active ingredient in Propecia® or Proscar®) is another prescription pill recommended by Health Canada to treat male pattern hair loss. Not only does finasteride promote scalp hair growth and prevent hair loss, but it is also quite effective at doing so. In clinical trials, more than 85% of men enjoyed reduction in hair loss while more than 65% experienced substantial increase in hair growth. Finasteride comes in an easy once-a-day pill or already blended with minoxidil in a custom premium gel, designed to enhance delivery of both active ingredients.

The minoxidil+ finasteride combo: The DHT fighting action of finasteride and regrowing power of minoxidil is the one-two punch that will keep hair loss down for the count.

Dutasteride (the active ingredient in Avodart®) is a medication recommended by Health Canada to treat an enlarged prostate. However, it is clinically effective at reducing hair loss and can be prescribed “off label” in cases where hair loss does not respond to finasteride.
