How To Prevent Hair Loss In Men and How To Reduce Hair Fall
I was born with beautiful soft tresses but as I grow older, but now I noticed my hair started to become brittle, dull and limp. The biggest scare was when I started losing hair. I started to look for treatments to prevent the hair loss but the ones that seem to work are either excessively expensive.
I started reading and researching and found that surprisingly, there are natural ways on how to prevent hair loss for men.
Today, I’m going to share with you 3 simple ways how I stopped my hair loss naturally.
Removing the stress from my hair
The first thing I did was stop myself from subjecting my hair to abuse. I love styling and blow drying my hair and I didn’t realized I was causing it to turn dry and dull. My hair lost its natural moisture due to excessive styling and blow-drying.
I minimized the use of blow dryers and let my hair dry naturally. If I use a blow dryer, I set my settings to low. The heat from the curling iron and straightening irons were also affecting my hair,
So I stopped using it for a while. Now I just use it if is necessary. Did you know that when hair is wet, it is best to use a wide-toothed comb? Do not use a brush and comb your hair lightly.
Making changes on my diet
Just like the body, the hair needs nourishment. The hair gets its nourishment from the food we eat. Eating food rich in protein and omega-3 fatty acids can help give the necessary protein needed to help built body tissues. Carrots, leafy greens, and eggs produced Vitamin-A, which is important in healthy hair because it helps with fat synthesis.
Vitamin Some of the most important Vitamins and minerals for healthy hair includes Vitamin B12, Vitamin E, calcium, copper, magnesium, zinc and iron and you can find them from eating vegetables.
Using Natural treatments
Shampoo and conditioners contain chemicals that can damage your hair. Some hair products contain natural ingredients but they can be expensive and this is not option for me.
There are many natural treatments available to stop hair loss. Plants, herbs, and flowers have properties that can act as treatment for hair problems thus, preventing hair loss. What is amazing is that many of these things are available at home.
Aloe Vera is a great at treating hair loss. It helps calm and soothe damaged scalp to create a healthy environment for your hair cells to flourish and replenish. It helps unclog sebum pile up from your hair follicles. To use aloe vera as treatment, just massage pure aloe vera gel directly to your scalp daily.
Onion is one bulb plant that you can always find at home. The sulfur content of onion helps increase blood circulation. It has antibacterial properties which help treat scalp infections. It also encourages collagen growth.
To use, extract the juice from the onion using a juicer.
Apply the onion juice into your scalp and let it rest for 15 minutes. Rinse using regular shampoo. Rosemary is not just an herb used for cooking. Rosemary produces essential oil that you can use for your hair. It has antiseptic, antibacterial and antioxidant properties that help treat flaky scalp, infections, and dandruff that leads to hair loss.
To use, take 5 drops of rosemary essential oil, then massaged directly on your itchy scalp after your bath. Essential oil is strong so it is advisable to dilute it with a carrier oil like Jojoba or coconut oil.
Coconut has hydrating properties that can help restore moisture in your hair. Coconut milk in particular contains essential fats and proteins that promote hair growth.
To use, simmer coconut meat in water for 5 minutes. Strain and cool then add a tablespoon of crushed black pepper and fenugreek seeds. Apply on the scalp and hair and leave for 20 minutes before rinsing off with your regular shampoo.
Jojoba produces oil that helps moisturize the hair follicles to make new strong and healthy. It helps the hair cells reproduce new hair faster. It does not leave any greasy residue leaving your hair light. To use, take a few drops of Jojoba oil and warm it between your palms.
Massage the oil from the roots of your hair down for 10 to 15 minutes, and then wash off using your regular shampoo and conditioner.
