Hello guys I would like to know what are the causes of hair loss... The reason i created this topic is because i heard that eating certain foods and drinks like coke and all that makes you loss hair which sounds stupid to me cause i really believe it's genetic... By the way I'm 20 years old and i have experience hair loss in the frontal area it's not that bad i still have plenty of good hair but I'm considering a HR in the future to reconstruct my hairline which is not bad at this very moment... But i don't want to make mistakes like other younger guys that are so desperate about the hair loss and don't even care or research for the best surgeons and go to unknown clinics and got worst than they were before. i think I'll wait till i turn 23 cause i also don't want to waste time and lose more hair in the future... I'm also scare about the scare on the back of the head and don't like FUE either i don't like the idea of transplanting CHEST hair on the back of my head... By the way I'm considering Dr. Feller cause i have heard a lot of good things about him... So hope you guys can answer to my question about Hair loss because of certain food and Drinks.

Thank You...

here's a text book answer to your query:

"A variety of genetic and environmental factors are likely play a role in causing androgenetic alopecia. Although researchers are studying the factors that may contribute to this condition, most of these remain unknown. Researchers have determined that this form of hair loss is related to hormones called androgens, particularly an androgen called dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Androgens are important for normal male sexual development before birth and during puberty. Androgens also have other important functions in both males and females, such as regulating hair growth and sex drive.
Male pattern baldness is caused by a genetic sensitivity of hair follicles to DHT, which causes them to shrink when exposed. This shortens their lifespan and prevents them from producing hair normally"

so yes, genetics have a key role in determining if you will suffer from mpb. factors such as diet, stress, environment, etc. may help trigger mpb in people but there are no conclusive tests to prove this.

Whoa hold on there you dumbass. That is the correct answer. So many times I see a poster looking for the deep rooted answer of why their hair suddenly went away. Was it because I drank so many sodas and ate so many sweets? Was it because I went on a bunch of drinking binges? How about my smoking? Was it because I had a stressful year? Was it because I did illegal drugs? And while sometimes in a few cases these reasons may have contributed a bit. The bottom line is that the reason why you lost your hair is purely genetics and DHT which is a known chemical in the body that causes hairloss. Don't Look for so many reasons when the truth is outside of that is the way it was predispositioned to go for your hair life and you could have done little to nothing about it. There are drunk, obese, drug users on the street who have a full head of hair. Who have washed and cared for it little and have never given a thought about their perfect hairline while others who have kept thmselves in meticulous shape their whole lives and given great care to their hair are going bald. So many come on here and talk about how stress cost them all their hair. Ronald Reagan had to be stressed being the President of the USA and had a perfect hairline his entire life. Look how many people keep their hair and live in third world countries where a shower is rarely taken and shampoo does not even exist. Or any vitamins or anything close to a balanced diet for that matter. If anything to eat at all. There are people living in caves for goodness sake who have all their hair. I answered his question very briefly but to simplify things that was the truth. I have been on these forums and fighting my battle for over a decade now. I have used tons of products and I know what I am talking about you dilweed.

Bevalaqua is talking alot of sense,just look at lots of other guys and you will see that. Quite simply you were passed the genes for this type of hairloss where the hairs get thin on top and medical science is along way away from isolating and manipulating these specific genes to wipe out mph because they think their are lots of genes involved in the proccess.All we can do is fight it with whats currently available.

Not really aware of bevalaqua's reading level, but basically he has given the right answer

On the other hand maybe it is nutrients - I am selling Skywalker's Nutrient Bars at 10 Bucks each, guaranteed to supply valuable nutrients which may help your hair - to be taken daily on a minimum 5 year subscription - just PM for an address to send the money....

Have not had an HT, turned down by 3 clinics, sadly they were right, my donor area has miniaturised.
Now here to look for any advances and give newbies another opinion.

There are so many causes of hair loss. Nowadays increased level of stress, depression and many dangerous diseases cause hair loss. So many people have so many myths and answers about this cause, but the root cause can only be identified with the person's genetic disorders. No doubt, environment, atmosphere, work stress, standard of living and unbalanced diet also cause so many hair problems, but the main cause can be vary from person to person.

I wish I knew the answer to this question more than anyone. I started losing hair at 17, and if it was not for Dr. Sanusi Umar, I would not have anything on my head today. In my subjective opinion, I do agree that stress, diet, etc all contribute to hair loss. However, I think they contribute if youare genetically predisposed to hair loss.
