Irrespective of the gender there is one common problem faced by several people across the world which is none other than hair loss where it is pretty much normal to lose 100 hair strands on daily basis.
Changing your diet, easing up on stress, and a visit to your doctor are just a few of the things men can do to prevent balding.
Watch what you eat: Healthy eating habits can do wonders for creating thicker and fuller hair. (These certain foods may help you have healthy hair.) Lean protein found in fish, lean meats, and soy supports hair growth, and nuts and seeds are packed with vitamin E and healthy fats to provide your hair with the oil it needs to stay soft and healthy.
Avoid brushing wet hair: When hair is wet, it is in its weakest state. So avoid brushing wet hair because the chances of hair loss increases. But if you must comb wet hair, use a very wide-toothed comb. Also avoid brushing hair too frequently as doing so can injure hair and increase loss. Use your fingers to undo tangles, not a comb or brush.
Limit your smoking and drinking: It’s common knowledge that smoking and excessive drinking can do terrible things to our bodies, but you may not have realized that these habits can affect your hair as well. There is a growing list of studies that show that smoking and drinking can be a supplemental cause of hair loss. Smoking can be an issue because it impacts the blood flow to your hair follicles, while drinking alcohol in excess can cause dehydration and nutritional deficiencies.
Take your vitamins: Next to stress, genes, and medical issues, vitamin deficiency is a primary reason for hair loss in men. To help prevent balding, get enough vitamins from a well-rounded diet. Vitamin A is helpful in regulating the synthesis of retinoic acid in the hair follicles. Vitamin B can help you reduce your stress levels (a contributor to hair loss) while vitamins C, D, and E help your body maintain the necessary nutrients that it needs to remain healthy. Here are clear signs you could have a vitamin deficiency.
Manage stress: Some men may even stress so much about losing their hair that the stress they create leads to additional hair loss. High levels of stress can result in numerous medical hair loss conditions including telogen effluvium (a condition that essentially pushes your hair out of your head), trichotillomania (a man’s urge to pull his hair out of his scalp), and alopecia areata (where your immune system attacks the hair follicles). It is best to manage this stress by reevaluating the parts of your life that are causing this tension while implementing stress-easing techniques such as practicing deep breathing or engaging in daily exercise.
Regular exercise can help: You know that exercise is good for your body, but did you know that it can be great for your hair as well? Exercise is a proven stress reliever and promotes circulation and good health overall, which may encourage hair growth.
