BOCA RATON, Fla., Aug. 30, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Hair loss impacts millions of men and women every day. Nearly 85% of men will have significantly thinning hair by age 50, and about 40% of women will experience hair loss or thinning by age 40. As part of National Hair Loss Awareness Month in August, Hair Club, the leading provider of total hair solutions in North America, is sharing information about the common causes of hair loss and the options available to help men and women suffering from hair loss.
Hair Loss Causes
It’s normal to lose 50-100 hairs a day as part of the hair growth cycle. But bald patches or thinning may be an indicator of a hair loss condition. The most common cause of hair loss is genetics. However, other reasons for hair loss can include:
- Hormonal changes
- Intense stress
- Autoimmune diseases
- Medical treatments
- Prescription drugs
- Poor diet
- Harsh styling practices
While only a medical professional can determine the exact cause of hair loss, the most common reason men and women lose their hair is genetics. Hereditary hair loss, also known as androgenetic alopecia, can come from either or both the mother’s side and father’s side of the family.
Male pattern baldness is genetic and follows a predictable and visible pattern of loss that begins with thinning at the temples and/or crown. As the condition progresses, the two areas of hair loss meet, leaving only a band of hair remaining around the back and sides of the head. Female hair loss doesn’t always follow a pattern and can be more diffuse in nature. Women may also experience a widening of their part or patches of thinning, especially near the temples.
“Hair loss is different for every person, and people often have more than one contributing factor,” said Lee Zoppa, Hair Club’s Vice President of Marketing and Advertising. “This can lead to a cumulative effect of more severe hair loss that occurs at a faster rate.”

Hair Regrowth Options
EXT Extreme Hair Therapy®
EXT® helps men and women in the earlier stages of hair loss with the only FDA-approved, clinically proven topical ingredient that can regrow hair and slow further loss, Minoxidil. The solution combines professional services at a Hair Club center with at-home products that are easy to use. The EXT program improves the look and feel of a client’s hair, while Minoxidil helps regrow it.
Laser Hair Therapy
Low Level Laser (Light) Therapy (LLLT) is a cutting-edge technology in the fight against hair loss. Designed for at-home use, laser hair therapy is quick and convenient. But even more importantly, this technology is proven to help regrow hair.
Laser hair therapy uses medical-grade lasers to deliver safe, low-level laser light to the scalp. As this light is absorbed, it helps increase microcirculation delivering a richer blood supply and nutrients to the hair follicle. The laser devices offered by Hair Club have been clinically studied for hair restoration, and they’re FDA-cleared†.
Each solution offered at Hair Club is customized to fit an individual’s needs, taste, lifestyle, and hair restoration goals. “Our solutions are completely personalized, and we work with clients one-on-one to achieve the look they want,” said Zoppa. “We’re here to help people learn more about hair loss and show them how to restore their hair so they can transform their lives.”
†Laser Devices are indicated to treat androgenetic alopecia and promote hair growth in males who have Fitzpatrick Skin Types I to IV and Norwood Hamilton Classifications of IIa to V and in females who have Fitzpatrick Skin Types I to IV and Ludwig (Savin) I-4, II-1, II-2 classifications, or frontal patterns of hair loss. The Laser Devices offered by Hair Club are FDA-cleared for men and women and cleared for distribution by Health Canada.
