The No. 1 statistic about hair loss, the stat that should get guys thinking about potentially going bald and about preventing it, is this particularly terrifying one: Half of a man’s head of hair will be gone before it becomes cosmetically visible. How unfair is that?
But hair loss, even male pattern baldness, is too gradual to cause panic right away. The fact that most guys aren’t noticing their hair loss until it’s half gone should motivate guys out there to get ahead of the game and assess what they had and what they’ve got, and determine if action is necessary now, while you still have plenty of it to work with.
