What should you do if you notice you are losing your hair?

One of the most difficult things for any man to face up to is the reality of losing his hair. For many men, it starts to happen during middle age, but for some, it can start even earlier.

Two-thirds of men have some form of hair loss by the time they’re 60. Almost one in four start to go bald by the time they hit 30. So what should you do if you notice you are losing your hair? Read on to learn more.

Cut out takeaways

We all deserve a treat every now and then, but eating too many takeaways or fatty foods can contribute to hair loss. A recent study found that obesity can lead to a reduction of “hair follicle stem cells”. These cells are important as they usually regrow and help our hair to grow, and some of them stop replenishing as we get older, which can create thinning hair and higher hairlines.

Quit smoking 

We know that smoking does a lot of bad things to your body. Studies also suggest that it may also be responsible for hair loss. Scientists think that cigarette toxins damage and affect your hair follicle’s ability to grow thick, shiny hair on your scalp. Nicotine also causes your blood vessels to constrict or narrow, restricting blood flow to the scalp, and causing you to grow thinner, weaker hair.

Drink less alcohol

Alcohol disrupts estrogen (the female equivalent of testosterone) hormone levels present in your body. Oestrogen is present in both sexes and it helps the development of female sex characteristics. Studies have shown that the more you drink, the higher your estrogen levels can become, which could explain why some men experience hair loss. Women can also experience similar during pregnancy as their estrogen levels are much higher.

Get more sleep 

Sleep is important for all types of health reasons, and a combination of lack of sleep and higher levels of alcohol intake can make you far more stressed. And it has long been known that high-stress levels can lead to hair loss. Stress could increase neurogenic inflammation and cytokine imbalance. If left untreated, it may become even more inflamed. Stress can also lead to a hair-pulling condition called trichotillomania. The more tired and irritable you are, the more you are likely to itch and scratch your hair, causing hair loss.

It’s an unfortunate fact of life that 50% of men over 50 will have to deal with some form of hair loss. However, being aware of it doesn’t make it easier to accept for everyone. Especially if it happens to you.

What can you do about losing your hair?

Instead of taking drastic measures like hair transplants or a course of pills that affect your libido, scalp micropigmentation offers the perfect alternative. It’s an affordable and safe solution that recreates the look of a shaved head. Or if you have bald patches, it can add density and depth to your hairline.

What is Scalp Micropigmentation?

Scalp micropigmentation (also known as a hair tattoo, hair pigmentation, or SMP for short) is a form of cosmetic tattooing typically for balding men that gives the realistic appearance of hair follicles. Whether you are worried about your thinning hair, suffer from male pattern baldness, or want to recreate your hairline with a buzz-cut look. Scalp micropigmentation can be a non-surgical hair loss solution for you.
