By Dudepins @dudepins

Both men and women can experience hair loss. However, it tends to be more common in men. Studies suggest that two-thirds of men will have lost a little hair by the age of 35. 85% of them will experience thinning or hair loss men by the age of 50.

Most men panic upon realizing that they are starting to lose their hair. But you need to understand that we all shed some strands every day. In fact, it is common to lose about 50 to 100 strands a day. So don't panic if you see a few hair strands falling off. But if you shed large amounts of hair every day and you don't know what you do, then we encourage you to read this blog post.

Here's what you need to do when you start losing hair. You can slow the erosion of your hairline by following the tips below.

When you flip through the pages of a magazine or go online, you'll be bombarded with several advertisements of hair products. Many of them claim to make your hair grow super fast. While these products may help slow down or reverse hair loss men, the best kept secrets to growing a thicker head of hair can be found in your kitchen pantry.

Your hair is a reflection of your overall health. In fact, the condition and health of your hair can give you an insight into what's going on inside your body. If you want to have a full head of thick, shiny hair, you should start making changes to your diet.

Our hair is made up of a super strong protein called keratin. `That means, our hair requires an adequate amount of protein to grow. A diet that is low in protein will leave you with dull, dry, and brittle locks. Eventually, this can lead to hair loss. Make sure that you incorporate protein-rich foods such as eggs, lean meat, and milk, cheese, and seafoods into your daily diet. Loading up on dark green veggies, citrus fruits, whole grains, nuts, and seeds will help keep your hair strong and healthy.

Manage your stress levels

Stress is an inevitable part of life. Everyone experiences stress once in a while, but not always negative. In fact, it can motivate you to finish your task or project. Too much stress, however, is bad for your health. It can cause anxiety, depression, and weaken your immune system. It may also cause physical problems like sleeping problems, upset stomach, headache, and hair loss men.

Stress is one of the major causes of sudden, unexplained hair loss. It can lead to Telogen Effluvium - temporary hair loss resulting from the early entry of hair in the resting phase (telogen phase). It doesn't cause excessive shedding. Rather, it causes the hair to stop growing.

If stress is what's causing your thinning hair, then you need to take steps to manage your stress levels. Take time each day to some something you enjoy. Learning relaxation techniques like deep breathing, mediation, and guided imagery can also help you manage stress.

Once the stress is over, Telogen Effluvium will actually resolve on its own. Your hair will go back to its natural cycle and promote healthy hair growth.

Scalp massage

If you are suffering from hair loss men, you may want to consider performing scalp massages regularly. Some of you may be sceptical about effectiveness of scalp massage, but there is evidence that scalp massage can help improve hair growth. A 2016 study that was published in the Journal of Physical Therapy backs this up.

In the said study, researchers have found that just 4 minutes of scalp massage a day can promote hair growth. It works by dilating the small arteries within the scalp and increasing blood flow to the scalp, the hair follicles, and the roots of the hair. This aids in delivering more nutrients to your hair; therefore, promoting hair growth.

Aside from improving blood circulation, scalp massages are also very relaxing. Regular massages will help combat stress, which is a contributing factor to hair loss. Also, some participants noted an improvement in hair thickness.

Most people spend lots of money on hair care products. While these products can help keep your hair strong and healthy, they aren't enough. For thick, healthy hair, you need to nourish your hair from the inside out.

The cells that make up each strand of our hair require essential vitamins and nutrients to remain strong, thick, and healthy. This includes vitamin C, vitamin D, B-complex, iron, zinc, and fish oil. Without adequate vitamins and nutrients, your hair may end up dry, dull, and weak. Diet plays an important role in the health of your hair. But sometimes, we don't get all the necessary nutrients in the foods we eat. In this case, taking supplements may be of help in preventing hair loss men.
