Even though bald is considered sexy nowadays, most men do not like the idea of losing their hair, especially prematurely. Luckily, there are several things that you can do that will help prevent hair loss, and there are plenty of great organic, home-made treatments you can use that work well and won’t cost anything because you likely already have the stuff in your kitchen. Let’s take a look at some of the many ways to prevent hair loss.

Hair Loss Prevention Tips

Use a Mild Shampoo – While many people say that you shouldn’t wash your hair every day, some also say that it is necessary. Hair loss can be caused by dandruff and dirt, so your hair and scalp need to be clean at all times, hence daily washing. Make sure that you are using a mild, unscented or lightly scented shampoo that isn’t going to dry out your hair. Find a product at your barber shop that you know will be high quality and good for your hair.

Eat More Protein – Make sure that your diet includes foods that are high in protein. Hair growth is encouraged by protein, and you can find the best proteins in fish, lean meats, and soy, along with other tasty foods that should be in your diet anyway.

Do an Essential Oils Massage – There are several essential oils that are really good for promoting hair growth and inhibiting hair loss that you can use to massage your scalp. Some of the best include sesame oil and almond oil, mixed with a bit of lavender.

Take More Vitamins – We all need to have certain vitamins and nutrients in our diets in order to stay healthy. Not only does a healthy diet help the body, it is also important for good hair health. The vitamins you should be most concerned with getting more of are vitamin A which helps in the production of sebum in the scalp, vitamin B which helps hair keep its color, and vitamin E which helps to improve blood circulation and helps hair follicles.

Do Not Comb Wet Hair – You should never comb your hair while it is wet. This can cause a lot of damage and breakage, because the hair is a lot weaker when it is wet. If you absolutely must comb your hair when it is wet, be sure to use a wide tooth comb. Also, be careful about brushing your hair too much, as this can also be damaging. The safest way to get rid of tangles is to use your fingers.

Natural Home-Made Treatments

Coconut Milk – Not only is coconut oil good for you, so is coconut milk. It is loaded with vitamins and nutrients that help hair grow, keep follicles healthy, etc. It will even help to encourage new hair growth. You can use coconut milk and coconut oil directly on your scalp, or in your diet to see the hair growth benefits.

Black Pepper – A good recipe for a conditioning paste is to combine a few ounces of yogurt with a few teaspoons of black pepper. Mix well, and apply to your hair just like you would a regular conditioner. Allow the mixture to sit for a few minutes, and then rinse out and wash as usual with your mild shampoo.

Vinegar – There are loads of reasons why you should be rinsing your hair with vinegar. For one thing, it is loaded with potassium, as well as other enzymes that are good for hair growth as well as dandruff prevention. Vinegar can help get rid of the dandruff that clogs up hair follicles and leads to hair loss, so your hair can start growing back.
