Everyone has their fears, even if they are too proud to admit them and a scary thought for a lot of men is losing their hair.
Whether it’s due to being associated with old age or they see their wavy locks as a key feature of their look, it’s a daunting thought to lose one’s hair.
Unfortunately for some, it’s just an inevitable natural course of life, whilst for others, they’ll be blessed with a wonderful barnet their whole life. Regardless of who you are or what the future holds for your hair, there are still ways to ensure it remains healthy and also to prolong the dreaded thinning process.
A Healthy Diet
By consuming a protein-rich diet, your body will naturally feed more protein into your scalp and the roots of your hair which will preserve the hair you have for a longer period of time. Eating the likes of lean meats, fish, soy or other proteins promotes hair health and in turn, helps curb hair loss.
Believe it or not, keeping your body hydrated and drinking lots of water daily is a very important factor in maintaining a healthy scalp and preserving your thatch on top. In fact, the hair shaft comprises one-quarter water, so ensure your water intake is consistently high and you’ll continue to grow healthy hair.
They’re not only great for maintaining a healthy body and mind but also a healthy head.
Vitamin A: encourages the healthy production of sebum in the scalp
Vitamin E: catalyses improved blood circulation in your scalp to help hair follicles remain productive
Vitamin B: This can help your hair maintain a healthy colour
Unsurprisingly, dabbling in an alcoholic drink or a cheeky cigarette can definitely have a negative effect on hair growth and preservation. The fact of the matter is drinking less will improve your hair growth whilst smoking cigarettes reduces the amount of blood that flows to the scalp and this causes a reduction in hair growth.
Guys, your hair is at its most vulnerable and weakest when wet so avoid brushing or playing with it after a shower, or after frolicking in the pool. Additionally, try to avoid towel drying your hair or using a hairdryer – it’s much better for your hair if you leave it to dry naturally.
