Hair loss can be both genetic and environmentally related, depending on the circumstances. Genetically, baldness is caused by hormones (mainly testosterone), which is why many more men are affected with hair loss than women. However, for those who aren’t affected genetically, there are preventable causes for hair loss in men that can be taken before experiencing loss. Continue reading to find out ways you can prevent hair loss that isn’t caused by genetics.

1) Control Your Stress Levels

Stress can play a huge role in promoting hair loss in men. If you’re experiencing high-stress situations and day-to-day jobs, it’s critical to find outlets that will allow you to control your stress levels. If you can avoid stressful events that can be causing continuous stress, you may want to consider a change in lifestyle if at all possible. Although everyone will experience stress at many different times in life, finding ways to lessen or avoid it all together will be very beneficial in your overall hair health.

2) Be Mindful of Your Diet

The power of a healthy diet can go a long way when it comes to your hair. Like other parts of the body, hair requires certain nutrients to maintain its strength and continued growth. If you want to prevent hair loss from occuring because of a poor diet, be sure to prioritize eating healthy proteins daily. These proteins include iron, biotin, vitamin D, vitamin C, and zinc and are found in many types of healthy foods such as fruit and vegetables. 

Adding nutrition to your diet must also mean cutting out habits that are counterintuitive to mindful eating. These habits can include smoking, eating processed foods with high amounts of sugar, and consuming high-glycemic foods (white bread, chips, cake, etc.). Before making significant diet changes, it’s important to consult with your doctor to figure out the best food plan for your health.

3) Your Daily Hair Routine

How you treat your hair on a day-to-day basis plays a long-term effect on hair health. Some men might not have much of a daily hair routine, but it’s essential to understand what can lead and what actions can help prevent future hair loss. Avoid using harmful shampoos with sulfur, which can strip the natural oils in your hair and cause breakage. Many hair products also include harsh chemicals, causing more damage than you may realize. Refrain from brushing wet hair as this can also progress hair breakage. If you are someone who uses hot tools, such as a blow dryer each morning, you may want to consider air-drying your hair more frequently as excessive heat can also lead to damage. 

Overall, many men can not control their hair loss, and you should understand the causes of their hair loss before trying changes that might not be the best solution for you. DNA testing is available to learn more about your hair and if genetics plays a role in your hair health.
