Male pattern balding is the most common kind of hair loss in men. It affects an estimated 50% of all men, but only 25% will go completely bald.
The good news is that it’s possible to regrow thinning hair with a few easy steps and lifestyle changes.
The most important thing in ensuring strong hair growth is a good diet. Eat more protein, make your Omega-3s a priority, and drink plenty of water.
This post covers the basics of how to stop your thinning hair from getting worse and grow new hairs naturally instead.
Start by taking a multivitamin
Get your hair started. After that, focus on eating tons of protein and Omega-3 fatty acids to nourish your body and promote hair growth.
Eat green vegetables and drink water throughout the day because this will help keep your body hydrated and moisturized.
Start by eating more Omega-3 fatty acids to rejuvenate your body’s healthy cells throughout. If you currently don’t get enough omega 3s in your diet, take a fish oil supplement and eat more flaxseeds and walnuts to get your daily dose.
Omega 3s have been shown to increase the speed at which testosterone moves through your bloodstream.
This increased flow can help begin repairing damaged hair follicles to prevent further damage from happening in the future.
Eating protein throughout the day is just as vital as eating green vegetables that keep the scalp well-hydrated so it doesn’t dry out and become irritated.
Biotin supplements are more commonly known for their benefits when it comes to strengthening nails and maintaining healthy skin, but they are also great at helping grow new hair growth in the scalp when taken daily.
Not only does it speed up the hair growth process, but biotin also strengthens existing strands of hair to cut back on breakage and potential damage as well as prevent further thinning from happening.
Treat your scalp with olive oil and rosemary
Rosemary and olive oil are two natural ingredients that you can use to treat your scalp when applying shampoo or conditioner.
Use jojoba oil
Jojoba oil is very similar to natural oils found on the skin that stimulate healthy cell growth by promoting blood flow and oxygenation throughout the scalp and follicles, which helps thicken strands and stop thinning hair growth from happening in the future.
A study in the Journal of Cosmetic Science found that coconut oil stimulates hair growth because it contains an ingredient called lauric acid, which helps promote blood flow and oxygenation throughout the scalp and follicles.
Coconut oil also provides a decent amount of antioxidants that help prevent further damage from happening to hair strands in the future.
Try using aloe vera
Aloe vera is another amazing ingredient for healthy hair growth because it contains antioxidants that help prevent future damage while giving your hair an extra boost of hydration.
It also helps improve the scalp’s circulation, which is why some people recommend massaging aloe vera gel into your roots while you’re in the shower.
Massage aloe vera into your scalp while you shampoo or conditioner to get even better results. You can also use it by itself without any other ingredients to see how well it works for you.
Eucalyptus oil has natural ingredients that help reduce inflammation and promote blood flow, which is the key to healthy hair growth.
It also contains antioxidants that help repair damaged strands of hair while preventing future damage from happening in the future.
When combined with rosemary, eucalyptus oil helps stimulate new follicle growth in the scalp, reduce dryness, and prevent further thinning from occurring over time.
Get enough sleep
Get enough sleep so your body can rest and regenerate its cells. Aim for at least 7 hours of sleep a night, because when you’re well-rested, it helps your body fight off infection and keep its natural balance under control.
Get regular haircuts
Keep your hair cut short. This will prevent excess damage from happening to your hair strands. It’s also advised that you get a haircut every 2 or 3 weeks to remove dead ends and split ends from the top layer of the scalp.
If you choose not to get a short haircut, make sure to come in for frequent trims so you can catch any loose split ends before they become worse problems.
Massage your scalp
Massaging your scalp on a daily basis can stimulate healthy cell growth and keep your hair follicles well-nourished, which helps prevent thinning hair that’s caused by dryness.
To get the most out of it, massage aloe vera gel into your roots for 10 minutes once you’re done shampooing or conditioning.
Massage gently across the scalp in circular motions to increase blood flow to your follicles and improve overall thickness.
Take care of your hair
With the right shampoo, conditioner, and styling products, you can reduce thinning hair and improve the overall appearance of your scalp.
Choose specific thinning hair solutions to help boost the flow of blood to your follicles, increase oxygen circulation, and prevent thinning hair from happening again in the future.
It’s recommended that you use a shampoo with ketoconazole or minocycline to stop thinning hair at its tracks before it gets worse than this treatment is proven to slow down thinning hair growth in men.
See what works best for you when it comes to shampoos and conditioners that will keep thin strands moisturized so they don’t break easily while still getting clean enough not to produce extra oil on their own.
The key here is to find the right balance so the shampoo and conditioner you use don’t over-dry or over-moisturize your scalp.
Avoid stress as much as possible.
As much as possible, avoid stress and anxiety because they can lead to more hair loss down the line.
If you find yourself stressed out too often, try meditation or yoga to reduce your overall anxiety levels and boost your self-confidence in the meantime.
Try not to overthink things and always remain positive; this will help keep your energy levels up so you won’t lose as many strands of hair as a result of feeling down about yourself.
