QUICK FACTS ABOUT HAIR LOSS

Did you know…?

  • According to the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD), Female Pattern Hair Loss, also known as androgenetic alopecia, affects about 50 million men and 30 million women in the US.
  • Up to 40% of women in America experience hair loss.
  • It’s normal to lose between 50 and 100 hairs each day.

Besides hereditary thinning or baldness, other possible causes of hair loss include:

  • Stress experienced due to traumatic events, such as the loss of a loved one
  • Nutritional deficiencies caused by low intakes of protein, iron, vitamin D, and calcium
  • Hormonal changes like those experienced during menopause
  • Illnesses or medical conditions such as thyroid disease, diabetes, lupus or anemia
  • Excessively pulling your hair throughout the years with tight ponytails, buns, and braids
  • Excessive use and application of chemicals such hair relaxers, perms, bleaches, and dyes

How MONAT Can Help

Excessive sebum in the scalp, often accompanying thinning hair, is attributed to general inflammatory conditions in the body. MONAT’s seven Treatment Systems have been specially formulated with key ingredient Capixyl™, which aids in hair regrowth and maintains a well-hydrated scalp. With Red Clover Extract, Capixyl can boost stronger, thicker and healthier tresses.

Men hair and skin care

Not Just for Women

As you know, the hair and skin care industry are very female oriented. Women have long been the primary users of hair care products and services. This is partly true because of an emphasis on hair and skin care for beauty as well as for health, and partly because women tend to be more concerned about their looks than men.

Changing Attitudes

Over the past few years, we’ve really seen that attitude changing. More and more, men are becoming concerned with good grooming and becoming aware of the health aspects of making sure their hair and skin are cared for properly.

Men’s products are a fast-growing segment of the hair and skin care business. This is partially due to the emergence of the “metrosexual”. For those of you who are not familiar with that term, a “metrosexual”.  “Metrosexual” is defined as an urban male of any sexual orientation who has a strong aesthetic sense.  They spends a great amount of time and money on his appearance and lifestyle. The metrosexual male has caused our culture to challenge the traditional notions of masculinity—and taking care of the hair and skin is one of those. The other reason for the increase in men’s care products is that the aging baby boomer (and this means male or female) is scrambling for the fountain of youth. Baby boomers are looking in the mirror and they don’t necessarily like what they see.

The difference between male and female hair and skin

Believe it or not, there ARE some differences between male and female skin. Let’s talk about those for a second. The differences are more along the lines of tendencies rather than structural differences. For instance, a man’s skin is made up of the same kind of layers as a woman’s skin. A man’s skin has all the same numbers and types of cells and sensory receptors for things like heat, cold and pain.

A man’s skin, however, tends to have larger sebaceous glands and thus, produces more sebum than a woman’s skin; men also produce it longer in life. The female hormone, estrogen, influences the production of sebum, so after menopause, the production of sebum slows down considerably. This, on the other hand, is not true for men. Therefore, older men will tend to have oilier skin and scalps than older women.  In general, men will tend to be more prone to acne than women because of that greater production of sebum.

The main difference is facial hair

Men perspire more than women do.  Their skin tends to be coarser and thicker, and then there’s the biggest difference of all, facial hair. Men and women have the same number of hair follicles, but because of the testosterone levels, men grow coarser, thicker hair on their heads, faces and bodies. Beard hair is really abrasive and tough and grows at a rate of more than 5 inches a year.

Male pattern baldness

With an increase of testosterone, men tend to begin to lose hair younger and more rapidly than females – thus male pattern baldness.  (Of course, genetics and environment also tend to have an influence on hair loss as well).

High levels of Testosterone can lead to the loss of connective tissue that surrounds the hair follicle, making it weak and eventually, non-functional

Men need to take care of their hair and skin just as much as women do.  On the average, men are exposed to harsher conditions in their work environment.

  • They tend to get dirtier because of grease, oil, and dirt in the workplace and;
  • Men are often exposed to higher amounts of pollution and harsh environments due to no protective barrier that makeup provides for women.

Because they produce more sebum, men also tend to have more acne-prone skin than women do.

Conditioned to care about hair and skin care

Men as a whole have not been conditioned to properly care for their hair or skin. The typical routine for a man is to use the soap that’s in the shower to wash their face and hair.  Then they lather up with shaving cream, followed by a splash of an alcohol-based aftershave or cologne.  An optimal routine for good grooming? Probably not. Think of this as an educational opportunity!!

It’s important for men to know that proper hair and skin care is an effective and valuable aid to healthy aging.  Prevention is important no matter what age.
