How to Prevent Hair Loss - Nine Easy Steps to Save Your Hair

Feb 28, 2008
As men start to mature unfortunately there are some physical changes. We start to get wrinkles and our bellies start to get bigger. One of the worst changes though and one that can keeps many a man awake at night is the loss of you hair.

Hair Loss actually begins for most men in their late 20's early 30's. The loss is most evident around the crown and temples. It is put down to a chemical called DHT. This hair loss can be stopped and even in some cases reversed with the use of certain hair technology systems (which we will come to later).
There are though a series of measure listed here that may seem obvious but if followed are easy steps that can naturally slow hair loss.

1. Don't pull you hair

By pulling ones hair you are placing strain on the hair follicle and may cause permanent damage which results in that particular follicle not being able to grow hair again.

2. Be careful not to rub you scalp against a towel to dry it.

The same reason as for not pulling your hair rubbing your scalp can damage a hair follicle. If possible pat away excess moisture and then leave the hair to dry naturally.

3. Don't use wigs (unless advised to by a doctor

The scalp needs to breathe for the hair follicles to work to their maximum effect. Using a wig suffocates the follicles and leads to damage which results in further thinning of the hair.

4. Use the correct shampoo according to your hair.

Follow the directions and use the right shampoo for your hair (i.e. for thin hair use a thin hair shampoo). Shampoos are formulated for a reason and giving your hair the most help possible is a good idea. Also never over wash your hair otherwise you deprive it of all its natural oils and it will lead to irreversible damage.

5. Don't use permanent or colorants.

Using any chemicals on the hair can lead to damage of the scalp and hair follicles and thus leading to these follicles no longer being able to support hair growth.

6. Always wash you hair thoroughly after using shampoo

Shampoo contains soap and chemicals and needs to be washed of thoroughly after use otherwise they will also ruin your scalp.

7. Don't eat greasy food.

Your hair is a good way to measure you health. In fact scientist now use one single strand of hair to test if a person has been taking drugs or test if a person maybe allergic to any foods. The old nugget "You are what you eat" is never more accurate than with your hair. Treat your body well and you hair will show the benefit.

8. Don't led your head get sunburn (Be careful of exposure

If you are going out in the sun be sure to use cream on your exposed scalp or use a hat so that you don't damage your scalp and follicles.

9. Wash your hair after bathing in the sea or in a chlorine swimming pool.

This is for similar reasons to making sure you wash you hair after shampoo. Washing your hair gets rid of the salt/chlorine making sure your that your hair and scalp are protected.

These simple steps will help any man to slow down the effects of hair loss. There are other systems out there that can help revive hair follicles so that it can support hair growth again. Most of these systems use laser technology such as the Androhair laser comb for example.
