What Causes Hair Loss in Men?

Hair loss is a common concern among men in London & in fact worldwide, and it’s a worrying condition that affects a significant portion of the male population at some point in their lives. While losing hair, is often seen as a natural part of aging, hair loss can have a profound impact on both self-esteem and confidence. There are various causes of hair loss in men, and there are common factors and lesser-known triggers that contribute to it.

Some misconceptions and old-fashioned beliefs (myths) exist regarding hair loss, where many of them have not been medically proven. For example: wearing baseball caps and hats does not lead to hair loss.  Swimming in Chlorinated pools or Salt Water does not lead to hair loss. Applying sunscreen does not cause hair loss, it’s useful for safeguarding the hairline from the sun’s harmful UV rays.

Using a hair dryer can make the hair more brittle but this doesn’t cause permanent hair loss. So myths shouldn’t be confused with the facts.

Spectacular place. Simon made me feel confident in understanding the steps and treatment beforehand, and I couldn't be happier with the outcome! Amazing customer service, very friendly. I compared many different artists, Simon's work is much more realistic, which you can compare from his instagram profile. His workplace is discreet and immaculate inside, on arrival, you will be offered simons special selection of coffee and tea😂. Simon had a passion for his work, and I can guarantee he will not allow his work to finish till you are satisfied.I highly recommend. Thank you Simon.
The results speak for themselves. A true professional while remaining a really humble down to earth guy. I honestly enjoyed each and every session and Simon remains there for support and advice till this very day. 5 out of 5 from me.

If you are looking for the best practitioner of SMP then look no further because you have found him - Simon is as good as it gets and he offers expertise that can't be found anywhere else. He is MORE than worth the price and will ensure that you are taken care of properly. I'm very glad that I found him and chose him to do my SMP; his attention to detail is top level and even with the work aside, he is just a great guy to chat with and be around. Even outside of the SMP he gave me a lot of great advice and knowledgeable insight on things for many topics. You will be in safe hands with Simon so I advise anyone reading this to contact him for SMP as soon as possible - your search has finally led you to the right place! I highly recommend. Thanks for taking care of me, Simon, and thanks for the great work. - Aaron

I’m a woman that suffered from traction alopecia which did affect my confidence for many years. My nightmare changed as soon as I met Simon. He did turn things around for me and restored my confidence with his work of Art! From his professionalism, to his warm personality, I can sincerely say without a shadow of doubt, Simon is unequivocally the best! If you’re thinking of having an SMP done, look no further. Thank you Simon for making it possible to smile each time I look in the mirror 🙏🏽

I will sum up Simon in a few words, 'a truly phenomenal artist'. It took me over a year to research the right company to do my SMP. Over that time, I kept coming back to Simon - I am so pleased I took the time to find the right person. Money, it is very simple, if you want quality, you have to pay for it. Some of the horrific SMP procedures I have seen, made me spend time to find the right person. If I could give Simon 10 STARS, I would! If anyone would like to talk to me, I have told Simon, I am happy for him to pass on my contact number. Thank you so much Simon, for changing my life for the better!


SMP for Genetic Hair Loss

Do your relatives experience hair loss? Male pattern baldness (also known as androgenetic alopecia) is triggered by genetic makeup (the genes you were born with) and it tends to run in the family.

Hair follicles can shrink, and for most men the balding process gradually happens in the same pattern. Issues usually start with the hairline thinning above the temples and around the crown.

MPB (Male Pattern Baldness) can start early in life. You may have already seen the signs: hair’s getting thinner, and then it becomes fine, shorter and softer.

Hormonal Imbalances
& Hair Growth

Hormones play a significant role in hair growth. An imbalance in hormones, particularly  dihydrotestosterone (DHT), can lead to hair follicle shrinkage, resulting in thinner and weaker hair. Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) (mainly found in women but characteristics seen in men or an overactive or underactive thyroid gland) can also contribute to hormonal imbalances and hair loss.

High Stress Levels
& Lifestyle Factors

High stress levels can lead to telogen effluvium hair loss. In this situation, stress triggers hair follicles to go into a resting phase but it is a premature resting phase. So it’s highly possible to lose more hair than usual on a day to day basis.

If you live a unhealthy lifestyle (eg poor diet and food intake) and you don’t get enough sleep, the follicles can become weaker, and this can also lead to losing hair.

Hair loss can occur after sudden or excessive weight loss. This comes as a severe physical and emotional shock. Even surgery, or going through a fever or the flu can mean losing your hair.


Medication, Medical Conditions & Treatments

If you’re someone who takes medicines and prescriptions for health conditions, losing hair may be a definite side effect.

Conditions such as cancer, diabetes, lupus, arthritis, depression, heart problems, Gout, high blood pressure and heart problems, together with chemotherapy and radiation treatment may lead to excessive hair loss. It is common though for hair to gradually grow back after treatment but permanent hair loss can result.

Hair falling out is associated with chemo medicines and blood thinners as well as other underlying conditions such as: Scalp infections and autoimmune diseases such as alopecia areata.

Alopecia from
Hairstyling & Haircare

When traction alopecia occurs it causes temporary hair loss.  All through when you wear a pony tail or braids or if you use harsh chemicals. The hair next to the scalp shouldn’t be pulled too tightly. The more the hair follicles become damaged, the more chance of the damage being more permanent & long lasting.

Hair perms, use of heating tools, aggressive brushing and hot oil treatments can weaken hair strands and leads to the hair breaking.

A Balanced Diet -
Insufficient Nutrients?

Following a balanced diet rich in essential nutrients goes a long way towards achieving healthy hair growth. A deficiency in vital vitamins and minerals, such as iron, biotin, and zinc, can lead to hair thinning and the hair falling out. Make sure your diet is healthy and filled with essential nutrients.

Age and Ageing

While losing hair is a normal part of aging, SMP is available to mitigate your hair loss.

As men get older, it’s quite common for hair to thin and recede even with no presence of male pattern baldness. Women can also go through pattern baldness. 

This natural process, is often referred to as ‘senescent alopecia’ (involutional alopecia), and it is influenced by genetics and hormones.

What Happens During SMP Treatment?

During an SMP procedure, a trained SMP technician will use a tattoo like technique (only it’s a not a tattoo in the traditional sense) to deposit tiny pigment dots onto the scalp’s surface. Each 3D dot mimics the look of a hair follicle.

The procedure is considered minimally invasive and is generally done in multiple sessions to achieve the desired results. The pigment used in SMP is specifically chosen to match the natural hair color, and close attention is paid to the angle, the density, and the distribution of the pigmented dots to ensure a natural and realistic outcome.

Results are relatively long-lasting and require minimal maintenance.
