Let’s face the facts, okay? For most of us (especially members of the “masculine” gender), hair loss is a very real threat. It affects a very large percentage of the population. In fact, according to WebMD.com, half of all men over the age of 30 have noticeably finer hair than they had in their younger years.
This should not suggest that fellas are the only humans currently facing such “impending doom.” As many as 40 percent of all hair loss sufferers in North America are, in fact, female. And while there is little we can do to keep nature from running her wicked course, we can certainly avoid helping her along!
As such, anything we can do to hold onto as much of our precious hair as possible, and for as long as possible, is something we should all very seriously consider embracing. Below you will find three tips that can help you postpone your hair loss, lessen its severity, and rock the healthiest, fullest head of hair you can…
Tip #1 – Stop Pulling!
Pulling your hair in an effort to maintain a certain style is simply not healthy. Tight ponytails are the biggest offender. Consistently keeping your follicles under pressure is not a whole lot better than constantly “wiggling” a tooth. Eventually, bad stuff is gonna happen!
Tip #2 – Live Well!
Eating in a nutritionally sound way on a consistent basis can go a long way toward keeping your hair healthy. Multivitamins, omega fatty acids, antioxidants, and lots of good clean water can also work wonders for your whole body, hair included!
In addition to consuming good things, you should also strive to enjoy your life. This may sound a little corny, but the truth is, stress does NOT do a body good. Chronic stress can lead to a whole host of nasty conditions, including poor hair quality. Besides, what’s the point in being stressed all the dang time anyway? 😉
Tip #3 – Be Proactive! Be Kind to Your Hair!
Good personal hygiene, gentle maintenance, vitamin and mineral infused shampoos and conditioners, and essential oils can all go a long way toward keeping your hair thick, full, and healthy for a long time to come. Avoid over-styling and over-heating your hair. These things can weaken your hair’s proteins, causing it to weaken, thin, dry out, break, and even shed!
Prevention is clearly the best medicine. And while not all types of hair loss can be avoided, it’s unquestionably good practice to keep what hair you DO have as thick, healthy, and vibrant as humanly possible. Besides, following the advice above is just plain good for ya, and the benefits will certainly flow into other areas of your life, as well.
