menMany men believe that losing their hair is inevitable if someone in their family has suffered from hair loss. That isn’t the case, though. There are many simple things that men can do to minimize hair loss regardless of if it runs in their family or not. The following guide walks you through a few things to try to ensure you can enjoy your luscious locks for as long as possible.

Provide Your Body with the Right Nutrients

The first thing you need to do is ensure that you are providing your body with the proper nutrients. Many people don’t realize how much their diet can impact their hair growth and health. Eat food that is rich in iron to decrease hair loss. This can include green peas, eggs, and oats. You should also decrease foods that are overly processed, filled with sugars or unnatural ingredients.

Minimize Your Stress

Stress can greatly impact how your hair grows. When you become stressed, it can trigger three different forms of hair loss. Trichotillomania is a condition that causes you to pull or twist your own hair when you become stressed uncontrollably. Alopecia areata causes your immune system to attack your hair follicles and cause you to lose your hair. Telogen effluvium causes numerous hair follicles to go into a resting phase at the same time. This leads to significant hair loss when you are stressed. Minimize your stress through meditation, reading or exercise to decrease your chances of hair loss.

Stay as Hydrated as Possible

When you become dehydrated, your hair becomes brittle and you will lose it quickly. Your hair is made up of 25% water so when you are not well hydrated, your hair breaks easily. It’s best to drink plenty of water throughout the day.

Style Your Hair Properly

Another way to decrease hair loss is to make sure you style your hair properly. Men who style with heat, need to be sure to use a heat protector to ensure their hair doesn’t become damaged when it’s styled. It’s also suggested to only brush your hair when it is dry. Brushing your hair while it is wet damage it because the brush or comb can get caught in tangles.
