Receding hair is something that affects over half of men worldwide, but this doesn’t stop guys from worrying about it.
Male pattern baldness is responsible for a huge 95% of hair loss in men and affects over half of the male population worldwide by the time they hit 50, with 40% of men experiencing some hair loss by the age of 35. Where and at what age you begin to lose your hair is down to the genes inherited from both parents, but other factors such as:
- Lifestyle habits can also play a part
Luckily, there are several things that you can do to slow down the hair loss process and cover up any damage done. We’ve put together some ideas to consider that won’t break the bank.
You might have considered a hair transplant as a method of covering up balding, but this isn’t always the most wallet-friendly of options. In fact, a high-quality hair transplant procedure can make a massive dent in your savings, on top of any time off work that you may need to take during the recovery process. Getting advanced tricho pigmentation treatment could be a cheaper and painless alternative option to consider. It is used to apply pigment around areas of thinning hair to create the appearance of fullness, or to mimic the appearance of a closely shaved head across the whole scalp.
Improve Your Diet
The good news is that not all male pattern baldness is genetic, so there may be ways to combat the problem and reverse any damage already done. In some cases, lifestyle habits such as your diet, activity levels, and stress levels can contribute to hair loss but making improvements to this can quickly rectify the issue. Foods that are rich in zinc, iron and B vitamins are especially good for health and promoting growth. If you are worried that your diet isn’t enough, you might also want to consider dietary supplements to ensure your hair is getting the nutrients it needs.
Choose High-Quality Products
Male hair products are quickly becoming more and more popular; you can choose from a vast selection of shampoos, conditioners, gels, sprays, and waxes at any chemist. However, it’s important to note that the products you use play a huge part in not only the appearance but also the condition of your hair. If you’re the kind of guy who tends to go for the cheapest and most convenient option, it might be time to think about opting for something different. Avoid heavy products such as clays and gels and stick to lighter options such as sprays and mousses to ensure no extra weight is added to your hair. If you suffer from dandruff, bear in mind that this can make hair loss worse. Add a high-quality anti-dandruff product to your regular hair care routine.
Male pattern baldness affects a huge percentage of men worldwide, but the good news is that there are easy and budget-friendly methods of avoiding it.
