Hair loss has many potential causes. Often, the underlying factor is a genetic one. In other cases, an illness or medical treatment, such as chemotherapy, can be the culprit. It’s important not to discount the role that lifestyle plays, however. The choices you make in your life can sometimes have an impact on the health of your hair and scalp, even triggering or exacerbating hair loss. It’s vital to know what the most common lifestyle factors are, and how they can be avoided. We’ll outline just a few of the main ones in this post.

The best results come when action is taken early, which means men should know the common warning signs of early stage hair loss. We’ll review some of them in this post, and also provide some basic recommendations for treatment.
