Back to the basics
Before we jump into the solutions to combat hair baldness, let us first examine what hair loss is actually all about?
There are innumerable myths and false information floating around the topic that it is often perplexing to figure out what is true and what is NOT. In order to take the right medicinal supplement treatments, it is imperative to comprehend the root of the problem first.
An understanding Of MPB (Male Pattern Baldness):
Male pattern baldness is a terminology used to express slow or rapid hair loss in a man’s scalp. Also known as androgen tic alopecia, male baldness is mainly caused due to changes in the hormonal level of a man, in the course of life.
Therefore, age plays an important factor as well along with the hereditary factor. Besides these, other factors that contribute to a receding hair line/baldness are:
• Sex hormones
• Thyroid problems
• Excessive use of harmful hair products
The aforementioned are some of the common contributors to your shrinking hair line, shorter or no hair problems. Hair on your body is rooted through an embryo, or follicle as it is commonly known.
When your follicle starts to shrink naturally, due to less hormones being transported to the area, you will face baldness, and hence with time, your follicle will not grow any new hair.
The good news is: The follicle is still there, which leaves us with hope to cure remedies that will help prompt follicle in a way that it is revitalized again to grow new hair.
Male pattern baldness: A manifestation
Your hair might give out some early warning signs indicating it’s time to worry. Therefore, you should keep out a look for these warning symptoms of losing hair.
Let’s begin with the shape of your hair.
While the hair in your scalp is still on your head, you should look out for:
• When your hair is shaped like the alphabet M, but only backwards.
• When your hair looks much thinner or shorter than before.
• When your hair looks like a horseshoe shape, especially towards the two side ends of the head.
• When you wake up in the morning only to find out hair clumps on your pillow.
• When you see random spots of baldness on your head.
These indicators can help your early detect MPB, while you can also visit a medical specialist to further confirm the issue.
The professional will look into the matter carefully and inspect if there are any other reasons for diminishing hair such as, an infection, reaction to certain medicines, pus or severe pain.
Additionally, doctors may ask you to sit for blood tests to ensure your overall health is not at stake, such as chemical poisoning or cancer.
So, when should you consider a doctor?…
You want to cure the issue of baldness
You are intuitive of a medical problem prevailing in your body and resulting in hair loss
You scalp is frequently itchy, irritated or has a scale like texture
Male pattern baldness: The don’ts of an alternative route
While it is obvious that many men will look for ways to get back in the hair game, it is often that they end up opting for alternative methods that are a big NO!
One of the most used and opted ways to prevent baldness is through hair transplants, that are widely and easily available in today’s market. In the past, hair transplant was nothing more than making men look like dolls.
However, today the effects have been perfected with increased expense and costs attached.
Beware of: Caps, hats and toupees
Back in the 1970’s, if men wanted to look cool, they would ornament their heads with caps, hats or toupees. In fact, these were deemed to be one of the easiest ways to hide baldness.
Today, modern wig has replaced caps, hats and toupees as an alternative to veiling bald spots. However, it still remains a great embarrassment as it does not fix the damage permanently.
Furthermore, wearing caps, toupees and hats have scientifically proved to be bad for the follicles. These head ornaments rub against the follicles causing great friction, hence damaging the area and causing baldness.
It can be a good idea to cover your completely bald hair with caps/hats/toupees, but it can definitely not have the same effect as natural hair care regimes.
Additionally, you should not make use of caps/hats/toupees in conjunction with your hair care creams, supplements, medicines, etc.
Male pattern baldness: The do’s for healthy hair
Be easy with the towel
For some reasons, men like to towel dry their hair in the most bizarre manner. They toss the towel on the head and rub it off harshly at all sides.
Little do they realize that this type of towel dry is one of the essential reasons for hair loss?
When you rub the towel against your hair, some of it might get tangled in the small threads poking out of the towels, when this happened, the hair is stretched out of the head.
The best way is to gently towel dry the hair in the direction of its growth, instead of going against the grain.
This will take your hair a little longer to dry, but at the end of the day, your hair will thank you!
Say NO to hot water
We all love spending long hours in hot showers. While it is good for our body, it is very unlikely for our hair. When water is hot, it takes away the essential, natural oils produced in our scalps, causing dryness, irritation and roughness.
If we lose natural scalp oil, hair fall is bound to happen. Therefore, opt for cool showers and let your hair be healthy.
Shampoo less, condition more!
Most hair stylists, gurus and barbers recommend shampooing only once a week. Shampooing often will strip away essential hair oils, which in turn will damage your scalp and hair eventually.
On the contrary, conditioning increases the level of moisture in your hair, leaving them softy, luminous and healthy. However, you do not need to shampoo to condition your hair.
In fact, head barber at F.S.C. Barber in New York City recommends conditioning every alternate day!
Grow hair, the natural way!
Before the birth of hair transplants and supplements, medicinal herbs were greatly used by the masses to increase hair growth, reverse the damage of balding, and stop excessive hair fall.
Through time, trial and error, we have a better idea and faith in what actually works to reduce hair problems.
There are numerous hair growth supplements available in the market in face of natural remedies, which have long been used in various cultures and passed down to us.
