  • Receding Hair Line?

    Hi Guys and some Gals

    An item for all those bald headed Property Investors(which is too late) or for those who are now noticing a receding hair line.

    Britons Scratch Their Heads Over Hair Loss

    British men are the most likely in Europe to fret and agonise about receding hairlines and thinning scalps but are the least likely to do anything about the problem.

    Only Germans who are follicly challenged take the issue as seriously as their European neighbours but they use hair-loss treatments, while Britons shave off what little they have, according to a poll published this week.

    "There are so many myths and misconceptions about hair loss, and a lot of men are quite understandably wary of so-called miracle cures," said Dr Tim Mitchell of the Britain's Primary Care Dermatology Society, an organisation of doctors who deal with baldness and hair loss.

    "But we can do a great deal more for men who are losing their hair than even a few years ago," he added in a statement.

    In a GALLUP poll of 1,500 men in Britain, Spain, Germany, France and Italy, Britons and Germans were most likely to admit their hair loss made them feel old, less attractive and insecure.

    Men in Spain, Germany and France dedicated more of their time to hair care than those in Italy or Britain. Spaniards and Germans said tackling the problem was particularly important to them and if a treatment helped, it made them feel healthier, more attractive and confident.

    Hair loss affects about 50 percent of adult men. Male patterned hair loss (MPHL), or androgenetica alopecia, is the most common form of hair loss in men.

    About 6.5 million men in Britain have mild to moderate MPHL. It is inherited from one or both of parents. Their hair follicles are over-sensitive to the effects of dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a male sex hormone which is converted from testosterone.

    Mitchell advised men suffering from hair loss to see their doctor or pharmacist early.

      Going bald or on the way there?

      I suggest Gilette Mach 3 Turbo (much better then normal Mach 3)

      Take the lot off - don't leave little bits here and there - great in the summer too - you can put sunscreen all over.

      BTW - this isn't sarcasm - it's fact !
