What Causes Hair Loss?

Hair loss, or alopecia as it is known medically, has many causes. The most common type is male pattern baldness, commonly known as 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. Hair loss can occur not only on the head, but also on other parts of the body, including eyebrows and nose. Hair can grow back but if it does not, hair loss treatment may be helpful. You may notice more hairs left on your hairbrush after a stressful event in your life.

What are the Different Types of Hair Loss?

With so many causes of hair loss, it may not be so straightforward figuring out what type of hair loss you have. If you are experiencing new hair loss that is sudden or patchy or notice more hair than usual in your hairbrush or sink without an apparent reason, 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 finasteride + minoxidil combo. 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 ingredient.

Receding Hairline

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

Receding hairline and thinning up top

If you are experiencing loss of hair from your hairline and at various spots on top of your head, cover all your bases by supplementing your finasteride and minoxidil combo treatment for growing strong and healthy hair.

What Treatment Options Exist for Hair Loss?

Since there are so many causes to hair loss, the best treatment will depend on the cause. Fortunately, effective Health Canada approved 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 approved 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.

Dutasteride (the active ingredient in Avodart®) is a medication approved 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.
