You may be asking yourself if there is something you can do about it or if you just have to live with it. Well, there are things you can do to get your hair back to its glory days. Stop worrying about that patch of hair that is looking thinner these days. Let’s look at the types, causes and treatments for hair loss in men to see what you can do for your hair today. 


Common Types of Hair Loss in Men


    • Male Pattern Hair Loss – Triggered by the genes passed down from your parents, male pattern hair loss runs in families and can happen at any time during a man’s life.   
    • Telogen Effluvium – Hair loss occurs when a large number of hair follicles enter the resting phase in the growth cycle. Hair falls out but doesn’t have new hair to replace it. It can be caused by medical conditions.
    • Anagen Effluvium –  Rapid hair loss that occurs due to a medical treatment such as chemotherapy. 
    • Alopecia Areata – This is an autoimmune disorder, which means the body is attacking healthy hair follicles causing hair to fall out and preventing new hair from growing. 


Causes of Hair Loss in Men

  • Medical Issues – Conditions such as cancer, arthritis, depression, gout, high blood pressure, anemia, thyroid issues and heart problems can lead to hair loss. 
  • Medications – Some medications have been linked to hair loss. 
  • Immune System – When your immune system is fighting your body it harms healthy tissues and follicles, keeping your hair from growing.  
  • Aging – As men age, the likelihood that they will experience noticeable hair loss becomes higher. More than 80 percent of men see some type of hair loss throughout their lives.  
  • Stress – Stressful emotional or physical events can lead to hair loss that lasts several months. 
  • Weight Loss or Improper Nutrition – Sudden and severe weight loss puts a strain on the body and makes it focus on essential functions. 
  • Grooming – Grooming techniques that pull the hair close to the scalp tightly and damage the follicles leads to hair loss.

This cap has been a game changer for me

I’ve been using my Kiierr laser cap 272 system + supplements (shampoo, conditioner, dht vitamins and gummies-so delicious) for 5 months. This all has been a GAME CHANGER for me!! My hair has been growing consistently thicker and healthier since i started as you can see in my photos. The biotin gummies are so good, that I had to start ordering my wife her own bottle. I’m no longer self conscience about my receding hairline. I actually look forward to wearing my laser cap at night before bed. I’ve tried other hair growth products in the past, but honestly never saw results. Kiierr has been amazing and I’ll never go back! Kiierr for life! Thanks so much!

I’m glad I started using this cap

I’ve been using the Kiierr 272 Premier laser cap for almost 3 years now and can’t say enough about how it’s helped my hair stay thick and healthy. I started using it after a friend commented about my male pattern balding areas while visiting in a coffee shop. This was the first time I’d ever noticed or at least been forced to notice/acknowledge this painful reality. After 4-5 months of use I noticed those areas filling in a tiny bit with some new fine hair growth along the edges. After 9 months or so those areas were healthy and mostly back to what I would have expected without my thinning. It even seemed to calm down some of my grey hairs, maybe due to the improvement of hair follicle health. After that initial year or so I now use the cap 1-2 times per week to keep my hair healthy and from thinning again. I have also had several family members start using this cap after my results and have now seen it work for themselves as well.
