Our hair is our crowning glory. The tresses are an expression of our identity; how we style it, how long we grow it or how short we cut it affects us and sometimes gives a much-needed confidence boost. However, hair fall is inevitable, and it is a major issue faced by both men and women. If you’re experiencing severe hair loss, here are some tips on how to control hair fall for men, with ways to naturally reduce it and what products you can use to reduce the hair loss.
Causes of Hair Fall
As hard as we may try, you cannot completely prevent hair loss, despite this, there a few treatments and remedies that can slow down the process. Hair fall is brought about by two main factors: age and genetics. One of the biggest culprits in hair loss for men is Male Pattern Baldness, also known as androgenetic alopecia which happens with age, but genetics can also cause premature balding. It is believed that more than half of the men in the US above the age of 50 are likely to be affected by some form of androgenetic alopecia, but the degree and rate of hair fall depends on genetics and as you age men start shedding hair more frequently.
Ways to Reduce Hair Fall
There are several ways to prevent hair loss for men, or at least to reduce the effects. These treatments range from natural remedies to cosmetic remedies, here are a few.
Laser Treatment: Though there have been limited studies conducted for hair fall treatments for men and women, laser treatment is believed to reduce the inflammation of the follicles that keep the hair from growing.
Hair Transplant: There are two types of hair transplants Follicular unit transplantation (FUT) and Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). Both these treatments are considered surgeries and involve some form of follicular extraction and reattachment. While hair transplants may work, they are the most extreme form of hair fall treatment for males.
Medication: There are certain drugs available which can be taken to help treat male pattern baldness. However, you may have to wait up to a year to see any real results and you will need a doctor’s prescription to get medicine.
A Balanced Diet: Like many things in life, a balanced diet works wonders to your body, whether that be your skin, hair, or even teeth. However, there are some food types that are rich in certain nutrients known to help tackle hair loss. Some of these foods include: high protein foods, iron-rich foods and foods with a high level of omega-3.
Quit Smoking: Research has proven that there is a direct link between smoking and hair loss. Smoking has also been said to lead to premature greying, facial wrinkles and of course countless other health problems.
Products to Use to Reduce Hair Fall
The most hassle-free way hair fall solution for men is by using all-natural and gentle hair care products. At Spa Ceylon, we pride ourselves for our 100% natural and paraben-free products which are enriched with Ayurvedic wonder herbs that can help reduce the rate of hair loss.
A Hair and Scalp Oil
There is evidence which shows that oil promotes hair growth, but while that may not be certain, oil is well known to help with scalp health. Here are two Spa Ceylon oils which you must try to reduce rapid hair loss in males.
KESHARAJA – Scalp & Hair Treatment Oil
This is a powerful deep penetrating medicinal oil which nourishes, strengthens and promotes hair growth. The oil contains Kokum Bark, Coconut, Indian Gooseberry and Bhringraj which hydrates and cools the scalp to control dandruff, hair loss and premature greying. Bhringraj (Eclipta alba), is a prominent herb in Ayurveda that promotes hair growth.
VIRGIN COCONUT – Scalp & Hair Caring Oil
Made from the pure naturally cold-pressed Virgin Coconut Oil sourced from the lush coconut groves of Sri Lanka, this oil is rich in nourishing vitamins and protective antioxidants. The oil hydrates and conditions the hair, controlling dryness and split ends. Oil also helps overall scalp health which is vital for male hair loss prevention. To use, just massage the oil into your hair and leave it for an hour or overnight.
A Gentle Shampoo
The saying ‘less is more’ goes a long way when choosing what hair care products to use. Shampoos tend to be quite harsh on the scalp and can result in dandruff, dry hair and split ends. A dry scalp also plays a major role in hair loss. To prevent this from happening it is best to use a gentle shampoo, one that does not dry out the moisture and natural oils from your hair and scalp.
VIRGIN COCONUT – Gentle Hair Cleanser
A mild cleansing formula which is enriched with pure Virgin Coconut Oil, this cleanser ensures your hair does not get dry when you shampoo it. The cleanser is rich in vitamins which cleanse the hair while keeping it hydrated. Your hair will feel soft and silky and scalp healthy.
A Nourishing Conditioner
Not using conditioner is sadly an all too common trend we at Spa Ceylon see amongst men. Using conditioner is a must if you want to have a good scalp and hair health to combat hair loss, and in some ways, conditioner is more important than shampoo. Try this conditioner and see some fantastic results.
VIRGIN COCONUT – Nourishing Hair Conditioner
Infused with the deeply nourishing pure Virgin Coconut Oil, this conditioner will strengthen and fortify scalp and hair balance while repairing hair damage. It will also hydrate, condition and protect hair.
Ultimately, hair fall is natural, it is sure to happen to all of us at some point in our lives and there is nothing we can do to completely stop it. Since it is caused by issues like ageing and genetics it is almost impossible to avoid it. However, we can certainly prolong its arrival and reduce its effects by small daily changes in our lifestyle, natural products and for extreme cases cosmetic measures.
