It turns out the long-held belief that men are simply victims of hair loss is not true. A new study by Dove+Men Hair care, reported in an article at dailymagazine.com, says there is a lot men can do to prevent hair loss than they don’t even realize. By the age of 35, two-thirds of men will experience some degree of hair loss and by age 50, a staggering 85 percent of men will have noticeable hair thinning.
So what can you do right now to prevent, delay, and manage your hair loss? While male pattern baldness is mostly genetic, there are other factors at play that can be managed or controlled. One of the most common factors that make hair loss worse is stress—both mental stress and physical stress. Activities such as combing, brushing, towelling your hair too harshly, pulling your hair, and swimming without a cap can all contribute to hair loss.
Dermatologists recommend simple ways to combat these kinds of physical stresses. Swim with a cap on, comb and brush your hair gently, don’t rub your scalp too hard when you’re drying your hair, and don’t dry it with a blow dryer set on max.
For other lifestyle improvements men can do to keep their hair, doctors recommend a diet full of vitamins and amino acids, such as leafy green. You should also avoid eating too much red meat. You don’t need to become a vegetarian, but limit how much red meat you eat weekly.
Doctors and therapists recommend “de-stressing” through the use of mindfulness and meditation techniques in addition to regular exercise. Doing these things will have a beneficial impact on your hair and help prevent or delay your hair loss. Of course, if you are already suffering from significant hair loss, you may want to explore your medical options. Vinci Hair Clinic can help you with this.
