When you flip through the pages of a magazine or go online, you’ll be bombarded with several advertisements of hair products. Many of them claim to make your hair grow super fast. While these products may help slow down or reverse hair loss men, the best kept secrets to growing a thicker head of hair can be found in your kitchen pantry.

Your hair is a reflection of your overall health. In fact, the condition and health of your hair can give you an insight into what’s going on inside your body. If you want to have a full head of thick, shiny hair, you should start making changes to your diet.

Our hair is made up of a super strong protein called keratin. `That means, our hair requires an adequate amount of protein to grow. A diet that is low in protein will leave you with dull, dry, and brittle locks. Eventually, this can lead to hair loss. Make sure that you incorporate protein-rich foods such as eggs, lean meat, and milk, cheese, and seafoods into your daily diet. Loading up on dark green veggies, citrus fruits, whole grains, nuts, and seeds will help keep your hair strong and healthy.

Stress is an inevitable part of life. Everyone experiences stress once in a while, but not always negative. In fact, it can motivate you to finish your task or project. Too much stress, however, is bad for your health. It can cause anxiety, depression, and weaken your immune system. It may also cause physical problems like sleeping problems, upset stomach, headache, and hair loss men.

Stress is one of the major causes of sudden, unexplained hair loss. It can lead to Telogen Effluvium – temporary hair loss resulting from the early entry of hair in the resting phase (telogen phase). It doesn’t cause excessive shedding. Rather, it causes the hair to stop growing.

If stress is what’s causing your thinning hair, then you need to take steps to manage your stress levels. Take time each day to some something you enjoy. Learning relaxation techniques like deep breathing, mediation, and guided imagery can also help you manage stress.

Once the stress is over, Telogen Effluvium will actually resolve on its own. Your hair will go back to its natural cycle and promote healthy hair growth.

If you are suffering from hair loss men, you may want to consider performing scalp massages regularly. Some of you may be sceptical about effectiveness of scalp massage, but there is evidence that scalp massage can help improve hair growth. A 2016 study that was published in the Journal of Physical Therapy backs this up.

In the said study, researchers have found that just 4 minutes of scalp massage a day can promote hair growth.  It works by dilating the small arteries within the scalp and increasing blood flow to the scalp, the hair follicles, and the roots of the hair. This aids in delivering more nutrients to your hair; therefore, promoting hair growth.

Aside from improving blood circulation, scalp massages are also very relaxing. Regular massages will help combat stress, which is a contributing factor to hair loss. Also, some participants noted an improvement in hair thickness.

Most people spend lots of money on hair care products. While these products can help keep your hair strong and healthy, they aren’t enough. For thick, healthy hair, you need to nourish your hair from the inside out.

The cells that make up each strand of our hair require essential vitamins and nutrients to remain strong, thick, and healthy. This includes vitamin C, vitamin D, B-complex, iron, zinc, and fish oil. Without adequate vitamins and nutrients, your hair may end up dry, dull, and weak. Diet plays an important role in the health of your hair. But sometimes, we don’t get all the necessary nutrients in the foods we eat. In this case, taking supplements may be of help in preventing hair loss men.

 

Hair fall itself is not a problem, but a symptom.

This underlying problem, deep rooted in your body system makes hair fall, and also brings on other apparent and unapparent problems in body.

Hair thinning due to genetics

The most common hair thinning problem in men, referred to as hereditary baldness, and in women, referred to as Alopecia, is a genetic problem. They are programmed by hereditary traits to get shrinkage in their hair follicles with time. This results in very less space inside follicles to hold a shaft of hair and hair falls off.

To prevent this problem, one can take medicines and supplements which alter chemicals and hormone levels in the body to prevent shrinkage of follicles, and generate new follicles. But such medications and treatment has to be continued for life, or else once stopped baldness will reoccur.

Lifestyle problems

Often lifestyle is a big factor in thinning of hair. As you have irregular sleep and wake up times, have bad food habits and dependency of street food, oily and unhygienic food, and take alcohol and smoke a lot, you can expect problems with not just hair but your entire system. Hair thinning and baldness often comes from these, and also from stress and anxiety arising out of stressed work life, relationships etc.

Serums, creams, vitalizers, are all external factors which can help for the time being, but not as a permanent solution. In some cases none of these works also, and you feel helpless with receding and/or thinning hair line. Platelet-rich plasma from your own body can be used to treat the skin and vitalize for new hair growth. This is the best possible natural solution, and suitable for all.

Liver and skin problems

Hair loss also occurs due to many other body problems like chronic skin conditions, liver diseases etc. In all such cases, the body problem must be treated first to restore a balance. In case of chronic problems which stay for life, the best possible solution is to talk to an expert professional and take medication and treatments as needed.
