A receding hairline is often a noticeable sign of baldness, but some degree of thinning at the temple region is normal as men age as it can even start to recede in the teenage years. Male pattern baldness is caused by various factors. Top of the list is genetics or a family history of baldness. Also, each hair has a growth cycle, where they grow and after a while, they weaken and shrink, resulting in shorter strands. After a while, this results in the loss of hair, and in the case of baldness, often times, no hair grows in its place.
If you’re balding, it’s a lot harder to grow all your hair back than it is to stop your follicles from disappearing in the first place. So here are some tricks to slow the erosion of your hairline and delay the loss of your precious hair.
Avoid brushing wet hair
When hair is wet, it is in its weakest state. So avoid brushing wet hair because of the chances of hair loss increase. 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 thus creating baldness very fast.
Enrich diet with protein
Eating lean meats, fish, soy or other proteins promotes hair health and in turn, helps curb hair loss.
Regularly wash your hair with a mild shampoo
Regular hair washing is a part of preventing hair loss by the way of keeping hair and scalp clean. Doing so, you are lowering the risk of infections and dandruff that may lead to hair breakage or loss. Moreover, clean hair gives the impression of more volume.
Take care of your health
Health problems are harbingers of hair loss. Ensure you deal with chronic illnesses such as high fevers and infections properly to ensure healthy hair.
Scalp massage with essential oils
Those who have been experiencing hair loss for quite some time must massage the scalp with essential oil for a couple of minutes. It helps your hair follicles remain active. You can add lavender in an almond or sesame oil.
Note that these ways aren’t going to reverse the effects of baldness but rather slow them down. If you feel they aren’t working then you can just embrace the inevitable and shave it all off. It’s stylish and gives you back your confidence.
