9 Factors that Affect Male Hair Loss
The Nine Factors That Affect Men’s Hair Loss

1) Genetics & Balding

Unsurprisingly, genetics played the biggest factor in hair loss in front and on top (but not on the sides).

If hair loss is in your genes, you are more likely to lose your hair.

2) Age (Older = Hair Loss)

Again, not surprising: the older a man was, the more likely he was to have hair loss.

This was true on every part of the head .

3) The Number Of Children (More equals More Hair Loss!)

Maybe this one isn’t as surprising to those who have children: the more children a man had, the less hair he had in the front.

Possibly, this is due to the increased stress associated with having children (but they’re worth it anyway, right?)

4) Diet & Hair Loss (Specifically Caffeine & Alcohol)

More caffeine was correlated with more hair loss in the front and top of the head.

Those men who drank more than 4 alcoholic drinks in a week had more hair loss on the sides and top of the head.

Interestingly, those men who completely refrained from alcohol also had more hair loss on the sides and top of the head.

5) Smoking & Hair Loss

Men who smoked had more hair loss on the front and top of their head.

The researchers suggested that smoking restricts blood flow to hair follicles, and this makes the follicles die.

6) Skin Disease History & Balding

Men who had a history of skin disease lost more hair on average on the sides and top.

7) Clothing (Hats and Balding)

Here’s a surprise: wearing a hat actually protected men from hair loss on the sides of their head.

I’ve always heard that hat-wearing led to hair loss, but the researchers suggested that hats protect the scalp from sun damage, and this may explain why hat-wearing prevents hair loss.

8) Stress & Balding

Here’s another interesting twist: increased lifelong stress led to less hair on the top of the head, but more on the sides.

9) Hormones & Hair Loss

Twins with more salivary testosterone than their twin counterparts had more hair on the sides of their heads.
