best ways to manage male hair loss

With Hair Loss Awareness Month starting soon, The Male Grooming Review begins to shift its focus on everything hair loss related. So, to kick things off, we look into some effective ways to manage hair loss in men.

Managing male hair loss involves a combination of lifestyle changes, medical treatments, and grooming practices. While it is advised to consult a healthcare professional for personalised advice, here are some of the best ways to manage male hair loss:

Minoxidil is an over-the-counter topical medication approved by the FDA to promote hair growth. It is available in various strengths and formulations. Applying it to the scalp twice daily can help slow down hair loss and stimulate hair regrowth for some individuals.

Finasteride is an oral prescription medication that helps block the conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT), the hormone responsible for hair loss in genetically susceptible individuals. It can be an effective treatment for male pattern baldness, but it's essential to discuss potential side effects with a doctor before starting this medication.

An increasing amount of men are stumping hair loss and gaining more hair with the leading non-medical hair growth pill, HR23+. This safe and highly effective supplement targets hair loss at the root cause, with 9 out of 10 users noticing visible improvements in their hair within 3-12 weeks. 

Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT)
LLLT devices, such as laser combs or caps, use low-energy laser light to stimulate hair follicles and promote hair growth. While results may vary, some people experience improvements in hair thickness and density with regular use.

Healthy Diet
A balanced diet rich in nutrients, including vitamins A, C, D, E, iron, and zinc, can support hair health. Foods like leafy greens, fruits, nuts, and fish can provide essential nutrients to promote hair growth.

Stress Management
Chronic stress can contribute to hair loss. Engaging in stress-reducing activities like exercise, meditation, yoga, or hobbies can help manage hair loss caused by stress.

Proper Hair Care
Avoid harsh hair treatments, tight hairstyles, and excessive heat styling. Use mild shampoos and conditioners suitable for your hair type, and be gentle when towel-drying and brushing your hair to minimise damage.

Scalp Massage
Regularly massaging your scalp can improve blood circulation to the hair follicles and promote hair growth. Use your fingertips to massage your scalp gently for a few minutes daily. You could even try a spot of micro needling with a derma roller. This has shown to be quite effective for promoting hair growth. 

Avoid Smoking and Excessive Alcohol
Smoking and excessive alcohol consumption can negatively impact hair health and contribute to hair loss. Quitting smoking and moderating alcohol intake may improve hair condition.

Remember that the effectiveness of these approaches can vary from person to person, and results may take time. For a comprehensive and personalised approach to managing male hair loss, consult with a dermatologist or a healthcare professional specialising in hair loss.
