Men’s Hair Restoration FAQ

Proven Hair Loss Solutions for Men – Studio 5 Hair Gallery / Mechanicsville, Maryland


Hair loss is a common occurrence as we age, and while it may be natural, it can also cause heightened levels of anxiety and depression. As a result, more and more men are actively seeking solutions for not only male pattern baldness, but other forms of men’s hair loss.

Here are some of the most frequently asked questions we receive. If you have questions about which hair loss solution is right for you, please contact us, and we will be happy to help.

Unfortunately, the answer is not simple. Some guidelines can be set, but a thorough analysis of your scalp, changes in health, medications, diet, and genetics can yield some answers and possible solutions.

Hair loss is a common concern for many individuals, but it’s important to understand what amount of hair loss is considered normal. On average, it is normal to lose between 50 and 100 strands of hair per day. This shedding is a natural part of the hair growth cycle and is usually replaced by new hair.

The key doing something about your hair loss is starting as soon as you detect your hair thinning. Once your hair follicles stop working and disappear, they are gone forever. If you notice thinning hair on the crown or a receding hairline, laser hair therapy – an FDA approved treatment – can help stop the progression of hair loss and restore the appearance of thicker, healthier hair. For some men, a hair system may be more appropriate, depending upon the degree and cause of hair loss.

Non-surgical hair replacement requires regular routine maintenance to look it’s best. Providing your hair replacement is kept clean and is well maintained then it will not damage your scalp or existing hair. In fact, it will offer a level of protection against the sun and will protect sensitive scalps from the elements.

Although these conditions can occur independently, there may sometimes be a link between an itchy scalp and hair loss. Allergic reactions, fungal infections, and scalp inflammation are a few things which can cause your scalp to itch, which may lead to damaged hair follicles and ultimately to hair loss.

Hair loss medications, whether prescription or over the counter, can often help slow the progression of hair loss for individuals who are just starting to notice thinning hair. Each individual case is different. Many people find working with a professional to be beneficial in evaluating the most appropriate hair loss treatment that is likely to be successful for them.

The short answer is no. If applied and maintained correctly, your hair replacement will be completely undetectable, even up close.  Today’s hair systems are made from the finest quality material and natural human hair. After an initial consultation, our stylists create a custom hair replacement designed specifically for you and perfectly blend and cut it to integrate and precisely match your own hair.

In recent years, there have been extraordinary advancements in men’s hair replacement. Wearing a hair replacement system is like wearing contact lenses. It takes a little bit of getting used to at first, but after a few days, it basically becomes a part of you, and you forget you are even wearing it. It is very quick and effective, and above all undetectable.

Male pattern baldness and female pattern hair loss (androgenetic alopecia) is a progressive condition that will continue throughout a person’s lifetime. If you are experiencing the early stages of hair loss, talk to a qualified hair loss professional to determine the most appropriate option to address your specific situation and concerns.
