To arrest hairfall immediately is of prime importance especially in male pattern baldness. As soon as you see excess hairfall happening you should be immediately on your toes to arrest hairfall from further damage. This will save you a lot of time, money and obviously a lot of hair too.
In my previous post I have explained how dihydrotestosterone (DHT) is produced by the action of 5α-reductase on testosterone and its role in male pattern baldness. So the most primary measures that you take up should be focused on reducing the levels of excess DHT that is getting generated in your body. Remember male pattern baldness does note have a specific rate in which it will progress and varies from person to person depending on their genetic make-up. So the best thing that you can do is start acting on it immediately.
Let’s have a look at how you can arrest hairfall immediately by taking certain important steps:
- In the beginning it’s very difficult to make out whether you are having male pattern baldness or not. The best thing you can do here is take close photographs of your temples, top most part of your scalp and the back of your head. In about a month take such pics again and compare it with the previously taken photographs. If you see even a slight amount difference in the hair lining or the density of hair then you just cannot ignore it.
- Ideally is such cases you should consult a hair specialist who will carry out a hair and scalp analysis and try to find out the exact cause of the hairfall and will initiate a therapy depending on the condition of the disorder. Be careful in selecting a good hair specialist as you might get exploited as you will be in a condition to do anything to get rid of hair loss.
There also has to be a change in the way you approach this problem. You need to make certain definite changes in you diet and lifestyle to arrest hairfall immediately.
- Green tea – Make green tea a part of your lifestyle, have minimum 3 to 4 cups of green tea. Green tea has great antioxidant levels and helps in reducing the levels of dihydrotestosterone and also boosts hair growth.
- Increase your protein intake. For vegetarians apart from daily diet of pulses, legumes, milk, etc. soy bean and soy milk have to be made a daily part of the diet. Non vegetarians should go easy on meat as meat raises the acidic levels in the body which can be bad for your hair. Bulk protein intake by having whey protein can be a great source of protein for the body.
- Maintain good fluid levels in the body. Have daily intake of oranges, sweet limes, apples or papaya. These fruits have good antioxidant properties as well.
- Flax seeds – Flax seeds are a rich source of omega 3 fatty acids, a must have for vegetarians. Flax seeds help in reducing the dihydrotestosterone levels which helps to arrest hairfall immediately.
- Take up yoga of meditation to relive the body of stress, both physical and mental. Reducing the stress levels in your body can have a great effect on your hair.
- Quit smoking as smoking tends to increase the levels of dihydrotestosterone in your body.
- Massage your hair gently with soft hands in circular motion. This will help in increasing the blood circulation around the hair follicles.
- Avoid using hair brush with dense bristles to comb your hair. The weak hair follicles might not be able to hold on to the hair and uprooting of that hair will further damage the follicle.
- Oil you hair with almond or coconut oil at least once a week. The essential oils provide good nourishment to the scalp with is important to arrest hairfall immediately and promote hair growth.
- If you are hair styling products like hair gel, hair wax, hair sprays, etc. you will have to stop using these products as they don’t provide a hygienic environment for hair growth.
- Consider taking Homeopathy – Personally having tried both allopathic and homeopathic therapy, I vouch for homeopathy. Allopathy may give great results during the therapy but the effect only lasts till you continue the therapy. But you don’t want this, do you? If you are looking for long-lasting effect then homeopathy is the best option. Homeopathy cures the hair fall from the root cause. Though the course of the therapy is long but the results it offers are very satisfying.
But all these steps are of no use if you try them when you are in the advanced state of male pattern baldness. There won’t be much hair left at this stage for any therapy to work to arrest hairfall immediately. Prevention is always better than cure.
You may find many tips on how to arrest hairfall immediately, but the important thing here is to act on time. Most of us think that it’s the cruel act of nature and nothing really can be done about it and allow the baldness to win over you. But if you have the will and determination to fight the hairfall you will definitely act to arrest hairfall immediately.
