Hair Loss Prevention: What to Do & Not Do
There are few things more alarming than a noticeably thinner hair line or lackluster locks that appear to have lost volume. If you are beginning to experiece hair loss or thinning hair, you’re not alone, in fact, “the American Hair Loss Association has stated that by the age of thirty-five “roughly two-thirds” of American men will have noticeable hair loss and by the age of fifty, about 85 percent have significant hair loss” (Source).
Though it is normal to lose a few strands of hair a day, more than that can indicate a larger issue.While genetics can play a large role in hair loss, your lifestyle can also negatively impact your hair’s health. Unfortunately, baldness is not easy to reverse, yet there are many steps you can take towards preventing it. By being proactive with your hair and scalp care, it’s easier to keep your hair thick and healthy.

One concern that we frequently address more than any other is a general desire for thicker, fuller hair. Many people who are only in the beginning stages of hair loss find that while they are not necessarily experiencing baldness, their hair is becoming far more sparse than they would like. Unfortunately, there is no magic, universally effective method to ensure fuller, thicker hair; rather, the treatment must be carefully tailored to suit the specific form of hair loss involved.
When hair is particularly fine, it can often appear to be thinning despite the fact that it maintains dense coverage over the entire scalp. Damaging hair care practices, like heat styling or harsh chemical treatments strip away some of the hair strand’s outer layers, making it more likely to break and split and appear thin. More seriously, the earliest stages of androgenetic alopecia, commonly known as genetic pattern baldness, begin by shrinking the affected hair follicles, causing them to produce increasingly thin hair until they eventually stop producing hair altogether.
Fortunately, the process of thinning hair can often be halted, or in some cases, even reversed with non-surgical hair restoration treatments like low light laser therapy, platelet rich plasma injections, or with topical medications.
