How to Slow Down the Balding Process

How to Slow Down the Balding Process

Hair loss is a very embarrassing and stressful condition. Only the sufferer can feel the pain and agony associated with a receding hairline or a completely bald thatch. Initially, you just can’t explain if you are really losing hair permanently or it is just a regular seasonal hair loss, but over the time it becomes apparent that you are definitely losing hair, and that stage comes when you have either gone partially bald or are just near to complete baldness.

Unfortunately, once the hair loss starts, it is really hard to stop it, leave aside reverse it. There are number of baldness treatments available on the internet but the majority of them are nothing more than a scam. Google baldness treatment and you will find tens of pages suggesting countless natural remedies as well as creams and serums to keep the condition under control. While some of them really work, most of the products are either ineffective or end up further worsening the condition.

If you are also battling baldness and don’t know how to control hair loss, don’t worry! Take a deep breath as you have come to the right place. Here we will share with you some simple ways to slow down the balding process.

See a Doctor:

The first thing that you need to do is see some doctors figure out the exact cause of hair loss. There are numerous factors that can cause you to shed hair, from genetics to hormonal problems, skin infection, stress, anxiety, medications, and some other medical condition such as anemia or hypothyroidism. You can control the situation in an effective manner only if you know what is causing it.

Try Some Good Topical Application:

Hair loss in its initial stages can be effectively controlled by using some good topical applications like Minoxidil. This drug has actually shown tremendous results in stopping and in some cases regrowing new hair as well. Although it is not that effective for all, it has shown results in more than 40% cases of hair loss.

Ask your Doctor to Prescribe you Some Oral Medication:

If you are continuously shedding hair despite regularly using the topical applications, better switch to oral medications. Since oral drugs for hair loss can have some really serious side effects, it is highly recommended to discuss with your doctor before you start the treatment. Also, most of the oral hair loss medications are prescription only. One pill that has been reported to be surprisingly effective in controlling and reversing hair loss symptoms is Finasteride – active ingredient Propecia. This oral pill has been rated successful by over 60% of the patients.

Fight Hair Loss with Dietary Changes:

Sometimes poor diet can also be the reason behind hair loss. If you are not taking a balanced diet, containing all the nutrients essential for hair growth – protein, iron, omega 3 fatty acids, vitamins, and biotin – start taking a healthy diet and you will be surprised by the outcome. Also avoid fatty foods, as the latest research has found that such foods actually trigger hair loss, speeding up the balding process. The study reported that the United States has the highest obesity as well as baldness rate, and it is not at all a mere coincidence. So, if you are losing hair, immediately switch to low fat, low sugar diet, and slow down your balding process.

Strengthen your Follicles with Regular Scalp Massages:

Believe it or not, a head massage can do wonders when it comes to strengthening your locks. A regular scalp enhances blood circulation, thus ensuring essential nutrients reach each and every hair follicle. And this ultimately helps slow down and even stop the balding process completely.
