In this post, let’s get to know more about premature balding, signs, factors or reasons thereof and how to minimize its effects.
Premature Balding | Everything You Need To Know & What To Do About It
The hair is our crowning glory. Others are fortunate enough to have naturally shiny and healthy hair, but there are others who are not as blessed. Some even face the dilemma of having to lose their precious crowning glory even at a relatively early age.
The front hairline and forehead, as well as the top of the head, are the telling signs balding is happening on men. For women, the tell-tale sign is the thinning hair as female do not usually get bald nor do they experience receding hairline. Nevertheless, if one experiences this in their teens or twenties, then what’s actually happening is premature balding.
Often, it all begins with strands of hair being left on the brush or falling on the shoulders. While it’s normal for a person to lose several strands of hair on a daily basis, having quite a lot of hair fall is indeed a reason to get worried. There are many reasons for this including hereditary causes, unhealthy lifestyle, hormonal imbalance and even nutritional deficiency.
Premature balding became my concern because I’ve noticed I’m having quite a lot of hair fall. Now, I’m sharing with you some of the things I’ve learned on what to do about it.
Consult your doctor
Nothing beats any condition than getting diagnosed by a professional. A specialist can diagnose the root cause of premature balding and can recommend proper medical intervention if needed.
Take better care of your crowning glory
Your daily routine and hair regimen (e.g. hair color, blower,etc.) may be doing more harm than good. Be more knowledgeable to the ingredients in your hair products as these may also affect in escalating the condition especially if you are genetically predisposed to go bald.
Consume enough protein
Consuming enough protein can ensure healthy hair. Proteins have, in fact, helped in reducing temporary baldness among women. In the same principle, eating low-fat dairy, chicken, egg, fish, beans, and green leafy vegetables can help in averting premature baldness.
Run your fingers through your hair
Giving your hair gentle massages can stimulate hair growth. This stimulates circulation that causes hair follicles to become active. Doing this every other day can invigorate hair growth which in turn curbs premature baldness.
Vitamins give your body and hair the nourishment they need but not met by your daily food intake. Take vitamins A, B, C, and E for a healthy crowning glory.
