A Calculator to Predict Baldness is Now Available
Baldness seems to be a nightmare for people’s looks, especially when they reaches above the age of 30. For some men, baldness even began to occur at younger ages.
If you want to know whether you are likely to go bald in the future and on what age will it happen, now there might just be an answer to that.
There is a calculator in the cyberspace that you can use to know the future of your hair. Dr. Adolf Klenk, a hair specialist in collaboration with German research institutes, Alpecin was those who invented this device.
The ‘baldness’ calculator will give a series of questions to each visitor. Then, from the answers given, the calculator will predict whether you are a person who will experience hair loss and baldness, and at what age it will occur. If you have more courage, you can even download a photo of yourself when you go bald.
Various studies have found that baldness affects more men and a few women of all ages and incomes. The most common form of baldness is alopecia androgenic, which is caused by a genetic condition.
“Baldness is not a disease so there is no cure,” said Alpecin spokesman, Rick Guttridge, according to Sky News.
From the results of Alpecin’s study, testosterone levels affect baldness. Testosterone deficiency would erode the hair follicle so that it damages faster and also affect the faster occurrence of hair loss.
He said the caffeine helps balance the effects of testosterone. However, excessive caffeine consumption instead of fixing the hair follicle growth, but will have effect of toxins to the body.
As many as 80 percent of baldness is heredity. So, if there is a history of baldness in the family, the odds of baldness in the future are also bigger.
According Guttridge, an unhealthy lifestyle factors including stress can cause baldness to occur much faster. “The level of stress we experience very high, with a” double crisis “in life. The first, at the age of 20’s and 30’s, and the second at the age of 40 and 50’s.”
Thus, he argues, one of the quickest ways to prevent hair loss is to maintain stress levels.
