How to prevent and combat balding
Those experiencing significant hair loss or who appear to be balding have come to the right place. For men, balding is an entirely natural and exceedingly commonplace natural sign of ageing, and many people, both males and females, even prefer a man who embraces balding and who appears to be growing old somewhat gracefully.
However, anyone who would rather stop or at least slow down the loss of their hair should continue reading to learn of some top ways to prevent and, in some instances, entirely combat the balding process.
One effective yet relatively simple way to slow down or prevent balding in adult males is to consider what is regularly being consumed and transition to a healthier and beneficial diet.
To prevent hair loss, it is important to eat plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables with every meal, as well as prioritizing Omega-3 fatty acids, found in copious amounts within the following products:
- Flax Seeds
Those who have lost a substantial amount of hair in recent times or indeed over the last few years may well be not so much interested in looking for ways to prevent baldness, but rather a way to replace and renew hair follicles.
In this case, a popular option is to look into getting a professional hair transplant from a reputable and renowned hair clinic, which will not only result in a new and voluminous head of hair but, if conducted correctly, will ensure that will result in new hair growing regularly over the entire life cycle of the new follicles.
Minoxidil and finasteride
For men who are experiencing the natural decline of both the thickness and fullness of their hair, there are two main treatments to combat male pattern baldness, named minoxidil and finasteride. The former can also be used for women who are experiencing hair loss, but women should under no circumstances ever use the latter.
It is also incredibly important to note that both minoxidil and finasteride do not work for every single individual who embarks on this course of treatment, are not available for free in conjunction with the NHS and therefore can be significantly expensive and both drugs only work for the duration of use.
The vast majority of people across the length and breadth of the country and beyond have some bad habits and one or two vices that are undoubtedly part and parcel of daily life.
However, if one is dedicated to preventing natural, male-pattern baldness as far as possible, it’s certainly worth looking at cutting down on the volume of alcohol regularly consumed, stopping smoking if relevant, avoiding drugs completely, exercising every day and also ensuring getting enough sleep. The healthier one is, the easier it is to stave off hair loss for as long as possible.
