Is There A Cure For Hair Loss In Men?
IS THERE A CURE FOR HAIR LOSS IN MEN
How do you know if you have male pattern (genetic) hair loss or if you have another health problem causing your hair loss?
Ok, so first let’s debunk some myths: Wearing a baseball cap or beanie doesn’t cause hair loss. Neither does washing it too often*, over-styling, over combing or frequent brushing.
There is a significant relationship between smoking and the speed of the progression of male-pattern baldness, so if you needed another good reason to quit smoking – there it is!
Since 95% of male hair loss is caused by male-pattern, genetic hair loss, there is very little that can be done to avoid it happening at some point in your life, for those with the inherited gene.
There are some treatments that can slow it down such as minoxidil and finasteride, but these types of treatments tend to be expensive and only effective while you are using them. The hair loss returns as soon as you stop using them.
So let’s look at some of the healthier solutions and other causes that can be reversible.
TAKING CARE OF YOUR HAIR AND YOUR SCALP
*While frequent hair washing and styling doesn’t in itself cause hair loss, the use of some of the cheaper shampoos which contain harsh chemicals - which dry out both hair and scalp - can be a contributing factor. Dry brittle hair tends to break which means less hair to work with. In addition, a dry and unhealthy scalp can result in poor hair follicles which need to be healthy to grow healthy hair.
Try a chemical free shampoo and conditioner like the Carelli range which you can purchase here. If you are concerned that your scalp is really dry the Carelli range comes with an oil which you can apply to nourish follicles.
