Baldness to a much extent is due to genetic and hormonal imbalance.Ofcourse there are treatments to it but I suppose the best would be to go for a hair transplantation.A hair transplantation using the FUT/FUE is the best and newest for hair treatment .The site http://www.theskinandhairclinic.co.uk will give a complete reference and cure to the baldness issue.Its therapy has a long lasting effect which is also worth it.

Losing hair is the worst problem a man can face in his life. Stressing out too much can lead to hair loss. Not taking proper care of our hair can also add to losing of hair. There are several remedies available online to deal with hair loss. i may advice to massage the scalp with Coconut oil at least once or twice a week.
