Thick, healthy hair is one thing every man would like to have as long as possible. An abundance of hair on the head is not only considered attractive but it also signifies good health and youthfulness. However, due to our stressful lifestyle, the lowering nutrition level in our diet, flawed genes and many other reasons, most of the men are facing the issue of hair fall. Hair loss is one of the most common problems worldwide – affecting one-third of the population. Everyone loses about 100 hair strands each day. It is a natural phenomenon; so there’s is no need to worry over a few follicles falling off.
Aloe Vera gel is great for your skin and hair. Cut open a stalk and apply the gel directly on your hair. Wash it off after some time. Applying aloe Vera gel will treat scalp infection and hair loss. You can also mix coconut oil with aloe Vera gel to make it more effective.
Live a healthy lifestyle
Stress is one of the major contributors to hair loss and almost every other disease, so it is very important to have a healthy lifestyle. The stress hormones, epinephrine and cortisol, interfere with the natural growth of hair. Although you cannot eliminate stress from your life, there are several ways to relax your mind and stay calm and happy – like practising yoga, working out and meditating. You can also try yogic breathing technique to calm your mind.
Usage of mild shampoo
In order to prevent huge hair loss it is suggested to keep the hair and scalp clean at all times for which it is necessary to wash the hair on daily basis. Washing hair daily is also said to lessen any risk of causing infection or dandruff on scalp which will ultimately result in hair loss. Apart from this, cleaner hair also gives the look of it having increased in volume.
Balding or not, eating healthy, balanced diet is essential for your overall health. Eat fresh fruits and vegetables to promote healthy hair growth. Food rich in iron, zinc, proteins and omega three fatty acids will help your hair stay healthy. These foods will also improve blood circulation in your scalp and promote hair growth.
Vitamins are considered effective not only for the entire body but also for the hair especially Vitamin A; it is said to help in better production of sebum present in the scalp. There is another – vitamin E, which is said to help in improvement of blood circulation in the scalp, to see that hair follicles help in more hair production. It is also important that for the hair to retain its colour you should increase your intake of Vitamin B, experts say.
Increase Water consumption
Each hair shaft consists of one quarter water hence it is suggested to drink nearly four to eight cups of water every day to keep it hydrated, and ensure healthy growth of hair.
