Hair regrowth treatments for men are usually harsh topical chemicals like minoxidil or finasteride, or invasive hair restoration surgery. But there are treatments to prevent hair fall and men’s hair loss that are drug free, clinically researched and effective.
Male Hair Loss Causes
Causes of male hair loss include poor nutrition or vitamin deficiency, stress, medication, illness, environmental factors, heredity, and smoking. For men with androgenic alopecia (male pattern baldness), hair loss begins at the temples and on the crown of the head. Male pattern baldness is caused by a genetic sensitivity to the hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT), which prevents vitamins, minerals and other nutrients from reaching the hair follicles, causing the progressive miniaturization of hair follicles.
Treatments to Prevent Men’s Hair Loss
Severity of hair loss in men will determine the best hair loss treatment. If miniaturization is complete and the hair follicles are dead, the only hair regrowth treatments for men that may be effective are chemicals such as minoxidil (Rogaine®) or hair restoration surgery. That’s why it’s important to get to the root of your hair loss problem (pun intended) before you have irreversible, severe hair loss.
One of the most effective treatments to prevent hair fall is a scientifically formulated, clinically researched hair growth supplement such as Viviscal Man taken at the first signs of men’s hair loss. Drug free Viviscal Man provides the proprietary, clinically tested marine complex AminoMar® plus a blend of nutrients including Vitamin C, Zinc and Flax Seed to nourish thinning hair and promote existing hair growth in men.
Though you can increase these nutrients in your diet by eating bell peppers and dark green leafy vegetables (for Vitamin C), and oysters or beef (for Zinc), the simplest and usually most complete way to boost your vitamin and mineral intake, and help prevent hair loss, is to take a hair growth vitamin supplement.
Another tip, especially crucial during the holidays, is to decrease stress. Extreme stress has been shown to cause hair loss in men and women. So take steps to keep your stress level down. Get regular exercise, spend time with supportive friends, set aside alone time with your spouse or significant other, and allot some restorative time for just yourself too. Not only could a lower stress level help prevent hair loss, but it can improve your overall health and possibly even boost your immune system. This is key to fighting germs and illness during the busy holiday season.
