Men's hair loss is one of the most taboo subjects around, despite the fact that it impacts most men at some point in their lives. The internet is full of products that promise to stop hair loss and get hair growing again, but few of these products work. Here are some tips for preventing hair loss before it starts, as well as encouraging hair regrowth.
1. Take Vitamins A and E.
Vitamin A helps the production of sebum, a protective oil that protects the scalp from damage and produces optimal conditions for hair growth. Studies also show that vitamin E improves blood circulation so that the scalp can be stimulated to produce healthy hair.
2. Eat Protein.
Hair is made of protein, which is a major reason hair loss results from diets that are extremely low calorie, which tend to be deficient in protein. Eating plenty of protein will help hair grow thicker and healthier. Consistency of diet will produce the best results.
3. Use Essential Oils.
Rubbing the scalp with almond or sesame oil before bed, then washing it out in the morning can help hair follicles be healthy enough to grow hair. Essential oils have lots of vitamins and minerals to feed hair and are usually antimicrobial to prevent infection.
4. Don't Comb Wet Hair.
Hair is weaker when it's wet, so comb before washing hair rather than after. If you must comb wet hair, use a wide tooth comb for the least stress on hair.
5. Drink More Water.
Hair is one quarter water, so staying hydrated will help to ensure that hair stays healthy. Hydrated hair also looks healthier and fuller, so hair loss will be less evident.
6. Pat Dry, Don't Rub.
Rubbing hair with a towel can cause breakage and split ends, so be gentle to wet hair. Patting hair dry seems less effective in getting hair dry but can protect hair in the long run.
7. Avoid Drinking and Smoking.
Drinking causes hair to grow more slowly, if at all, while smoking dries out skin and restricts blood flow to the scalp. Just like these two things negatively impact your overall health, they both negatively impact your hair's ability to keep growing.
8. Exercise Regularly.
Exercise has multiple benefits that can help your hair's ability to grow. Exercising regularly keeps your hormones balanced, increases circulation, and lessens stress. All of these can be factors in hair loss that exercise can help alleviate.
9. Use Natural Shampoo.
Some of the chemicals commonly used in shampoos can be part of the hair loss problem, causing scalp dryness, allergic reactions, and imbalances that can disrupt hair follicles that would otherwise grow new hair. Using natural shampoo without any of these chemicals can heal the scalp and promote conditions for growing new hair.
Biconi's line of hair care products is all natural and contains no harsh chemicals to damage your scalp or hair. Both Hair Rejuvenating Solid Shampoo and Hair Repair Conditioner contain noni, a plant extract that has been shown to heal skin including the scalp and promote new hair growth.
