Hair loss is a common occurrence in men and women. The problem is more commonly seen in men as compared to women. Therefore, a hair transplant is more common amongst men.
There may be several causes of hair loss such as genetics, stress, use of certain medications, poor diet, mineral deficiency, and pollution.
Hair loss impacts the esteem and self-confidence of a man, and result in a compromised personality. A man with hair loss is usually on a constant lookout for various remedies to correct hair loss.
In this article, we will be discussing the best methods for hair loss prevention in men.
Tips to prevent hair loss in men:
A nutritious diet high in protein has a positive impact on the hair, skin, and overall health of an individual. Some of the protein-rich food items that can be included in your diet are paneer, soy, tofu, lentils, beans, fish, eggs, cheese, yogurt, lean meat, milk, seeds, and nuts.
2)Regular Hair Wash
Regular hair wash keeps the scalp clean and oil-free. This reduces the risk of dandruff and infection in hair. One must use a shampoo which is mild or organic, to prevent damage of hair due to the harsh chemicals. Regular hair-wash with mild shampoo prevents hair loss.
3)Massage of the Scalp
Massaging the scalp with oil helps in activating the hair follicles and improving the blood circulation in the scalp. This helps in hair growth and stopping hair loss. Some essential hair oils like almond and sesame have hair growth properties.
4)Gentle Hair Brushing
It is advisable to prevent brushing your teeth right after a shower when the hair is wet and is more likely to break. If one must brush their hair immediately after a bath, it is advisable to use a wide-tooth comb instead of a hairbrush after untangling the hair using fingers.
5)Drink plenty of water
One human hair shaft consists of a quarter part water. Drinking a minimum of 6 to 8 glasses of water in a day and staying hydrated encourages healthy hair growth.
Some form of moderate exercise like walking, swimming, cycling, yoga, etc. daily is a must to keep the hormones balanced and a reduction in stress level, resulting in less hair loss.
Smoking prevents blood flow to the scalp region resulting in lesser hair growth and an increase in hair loss. Quitting smoking is not only beneficial for the hair but, also for the overall health of an individual.
8)Abstaining from Alcohol
Just like smoking, alcohol too prevents blood flow to the scalp region causing an increased hair loss and a decrease in hair growth. Abstaining from alcohol has many health benefits including prevention of hair loss and an increase in the rate of hair growth.
9)Hair loss supplements
Vitamin supplements help in the prevention of hair loss. Vitamin A helps in the production of sebum, which is useful for a healthy scalp. Vitamin B helps in natural hair color retention. Vitamin E improves blood circulation and keeps the scalp healthy and productive to improve blood circulation.
Stress leads to increased hair loss. One can try yoga or meditation, go for a walk, listen to music, or read a book to reduce stress levels.
Mesotherapy can be used to treat hair loss problems like alopecia. The doctor injects Minoxidil, Finasteride, vitamins, or natural plant extracts into the scalp in the process of Mesotherapy. It helps in stopping hair loss and increased hair growth. Minoxidil and Finasteride can also b taken as medications. They help in giving essential nutrients to the hair, improvement in blood circulation, and balancing the hormone levels.
