Brad Pitt. Ron Swanson. David Beckham. These men are the epitome of masculinity, and what do they all have in common? Great facial hair. Even if you rock the clean-shaven look, what guy doesn’t desire growing a lumberjack-worthy beard or mustache once in a while? But if disappointment strikes as every attempt leads to patchy spots and sparse hairs—you’re not alone.
Few parts of our daily routine feel as incredible as a freshly washed mane. The smell of shampoo. The impeccable shine. The sense of peak cleanliness. It really is hard to beat a good scrub.
But believe it or not, many consider washing your hair more than a once or twice a week actually detrimental to overall hair and scalp health. That’s a surprising conclusion for those who grew up with the habit of a daily shampoo.

When most of us think of the typical person suffering from severe balding, our mind usually imagines a greying, old man losing their hair thanks to genetics and age. Medically known as androgenetic alopecia, this may be the most common form of balding, affecting 80 million people in the U.S., but it’s far from the only way we lose our hair.
We love to look our best, and often it all starts with the hair. What’s a better way to enhance our natural look than with a fantastic, fresh new color? Maybe it’s to cover up those greys, add a little edge, or just change up your everyday appearance. No matter the reason, there’s no denying we’re obsessed with dying our locks.
Androgenic alopecia, most commonly known as male pattern hair loss, is an extremely common issue for many men as they age. In fact, approximately half of all men over the age of 50 are afflicted. Though many happily embrace a hairless future, others choose to fight it in hopes of gaining back the confidence connected to their locks.
A major change has been made in the world of surgical hair restoration — the popular follicular unit extraction (FUE) procedure, is now to be known as a follicular unit excision procedure.
Why the change now, thirty years after its initial introduction? Is it worth it to push this new terminology onto hair transplant specialists and patients alike? According to the experts in the January 2018 issue of FORUM, the official publication of the International Society of Hair Restoration Specialists (ISHRS), the answer is an emphatic and nearly unanimous yes.
Hair loss is an incredibly common issue for many men worldwide. According to the American Hair Loss Association, by the age of 35, over one-third of men will experience Androgenic Alopecia, also known as male pattern baldness.
Thankfully, there are many safe and reliable options on the market to combat a hairless future, with some being more invasive than others.
