Hair loss happens to the best of us. Sometimes, there’s nothing you can do to stop your once-glossy locks from free-falling to the ground. In other cases, there may be ways of tackling a receding hairline in true manly style. If you’ve noticed a couple of patches here or there, or you’re receding gradually, bear these tips in mind.
Consult your hairdresser
When it comes to a receding hair line, your hairdresser should be your best friend. The style of your hair can make a massive difference to the visibility of your hairline. Some styles will expose it while others will hide it. If you’re panicking about receding, speak to your stylist. Explain that you’re keen to go for something, which minimizes the aesthetic impact of hair loss.
If you suffer from male pattern baldness, you may wish to consider changing your style or going for broke and getting a grade 1. With this kind of hair loss, you’ll find that you go bald in different areas of the scalp. To begin with, it’s fairly easy to disguise patches with crafty hair cuts. But in the long-term, many men choose to shave their heads or keep their hair very short.
If you’re losing hair and there’s no genetic connection, stress may be to blame. If you’ve got deadlines at work or bills to pay, for example, this could be contributing to hair loss. Try and identify stress triggers and use coping mechanisms. Exercise, get enough sleep, meditate, or do some breathing exercises. If stress is a persistent problem, and you’re not coping, seek advice from your doctor.
Your diet can sometimes help to stimulate hair growth. Changing the foods you eat is unlikely to have a positive impact if you have male pattern baldness, as this is genetic. However, it can help with minor hair loss. Some foods help to accelerate the speed of hair growth and increase the thickness of the hair. Good examples include coconut water, spinach, nuts, seeds and oily fish.
Even the manliest men are embracing newfangled lotions and potions these days. If your hair’s looking a little thin on top, or you’ve got a receding hairline, it may be time to add some products. Mousse and conditioners can help to thicken your hair and make it look healthier. If you’re not sure what to buy, ask your hairdresser for recommendations. You can also buy medicated shampoos, which accelerate hair growth.
Every man will lose their hair at some point. If hair loss has come to haunt you a little earlier than anticipated, try not to panic. A good haircut can hide a receding hairline, and there are natural and medicinal remedies out there. Speak to your hairdresser and try out a new style. If you’re looking for something, which will increase hair growth, speak to your doctor. Try and manage stress effectively and add some hair superfoods to your diet. It may not be possible to prevent losing your hair, but you may be able to slow the process down.
