Going Bald? Take These Steps

The moment you discover that your hairline is receding is always unnerving. You’re used to a thick, luscious head of hair and suddenly your faced with a thinning, balding scalp that won’t seem to co-operate no matter how you try to slow down the process. Losing your hair can be a massive confidence killer, but it doesn’t have to be a catastrophe.


Avoid Quick Fixes

There are tons of products on the market that claim to address the problem of male pattern baldness. Unfortunately, most of them will do nothing at all for your hair. Save your money and energy by sticking with products that are FDA approved.

Finasteride and Minoxidil aren’t likely to lead to new hair growth, but they can help slow down the balding process. These products can be expensive and need to be used on a daily basis for an extended period of time before you’ll see any results, but they have been shown to be effective in clinical trials, so if you’re truly desperate to keep your hair then it may be worth the effort.


Work Out The Cause

In many cases, baldness has a genetic basis, and will have no connection to your diet or lifestyle. This isn’t true for everyone, though, so if most of the men in your family seem to keep their hair into old age then you should see a dermatologist to find out what might be causing your premature hair loss. The problem may be related to your thyroid, nutritional deficiencies, or a hormonal imbalance, so seek professional help before you assume that it’s a normal part of the aging process. A scalp biopsy can also pinpoint any possible causes.


Care For Your Hair Wisely

If you spot thinning around your scalp, make some lifestyle changes to help reduce further damage. Try not to shampoo and condition your hair too frequently, and dry your hair gently rather than rubbing harshly with a towel. You should also avoid over-brushing and combing your hair.


Style Differently

If you usually wear your hair long and are beginning to experience some balding, you may find that a shorter style is more flattering. Longer hair can emphasize a thinning scalp, whereas shorter hair will create a fuller look.


Chill Out

Stress can be a significant trigger for hair loss, and the sight of hair loss may cause you to feel even more stress. Stop this vicious cycle by reducing your stress levels overall. Exercise, a healthy diet and relaxation strategies will help you calm down and feel more relaxed.
