All through our lives we care for our hair. It starts with our parents worrying about us getting cradle cap, and it progresses through cuts, curls, styling, coloring, washing, conditioning, and sometimes even shaving. Everything we do is designed to make us look as attractive as we can be, something which is important to us at all ages. So when hair starts to fall out, it can be a devastating experience. In attempts to make their hair look thicker, people use hair pieces, scalp coloration, comb-overs, and anything else they can think of. Still, no matter what they do, the problem of thinning hair remains. Did you know that part of the reason you’ve been losing hair could be a lack of vitamin E in your diet?
E is an essential nutrient for many parts of your body. Hair and skin both benefit greatly from having enough of it in your diet. You can’t have a healthy scalp, follicles, and hair without it. If your diet is rich in such foods as eggs, soya beans, nuts, broccoli, seeds, olive oil, wheat germ, and avocados, then you probably are ingesting as much vitamin E as you need. However, the diets of many Americans lack a lot of these foods which means that they need to provide an alternative source of the vitamin if their bodies are going to remain healthy. Ideally a person will love the items on the list, but the reality is that most of us either don’t care for them or don’t even think to include them on a daily basis.
Once again you’re being forced to find alternative ways of getting the E that you need. Almonds are a great source of the vitamin, and there are many very tasty kinds of almonds to choose from. Remember, however, that almonds do add calories to your diet, so you won’t want to overindulge.
Massaging your scalp with vitamin E oil can lead to both increased blood and oxygen being circulated to that area. To decrease your hair loss, you will need to conduct a massage once a week for approximately 4 to 5 months in order to notice a reversal of the problem. Rub the oil into your scalp, cover your head with a towel, and let everything rest for 1-3 hours before washing the oil out with a mild shampoo. A mixture of almond and coconut oil has also been proven to be an effective massage medium.
You will also find various vitamin E supplements which can be taken in pill form. In this day in age, there’s no reason for allowing your body to experience a deficiency of vitamin E, and if you raise your intake to appropriate levels, you just may see your hair start to thicken again.
As a male, the idea that one could be losing their hair can be incredibly troublesome and anxiety-spawning. While males aren’t under the obligation to be so conscious of their image, it cannot be denied that it’s a socially acceptable action to mock baldness and male hair loss. In this article, I will attempt to outline the reality of the situation rather than market expensive hair loss medicine.
The first sign of male pattern baldness is a receding hairline. On first discovery this can be an incredibly worrying sight. Most males see their hair as a form of identity and a defining factor of their image, and therefore what makes them themselves. This of course is not to be confused with alopecia, which is usually related to stress or an illness, this form of hair loss presents itself in patches across the scalp, and if noticed should be seen by a doctor as soon as possible.
Male pattern baldness bears no other symptoms and is transmitted through your DNA; it doesn’t come through any particular side of the family, and it can be a very slow process. The men that experience extreme anxiety over hair loss should be relieved to hear that there are options to restore hair, but most of them come at a high price. The most important thing to do at this stage is to have a good long think about whether or not your hair is actually an important factor, and whether the need to maintain your hair is not a sign of underlying low-self-esteem and self-image problems. On the internet, the top results for male hair loss are dominated by pharmaceutical and private medical companies telling you that you can feel more like yourself again by purchasing one of their high priced products. While not attempting to make your decision for you, I would say that it is far more of a valuable personal journey to simply accept factors in life that are out of your control.
In contrast, some men who work in public relations jobs where their appearance and presentation is an incredibly important factor in the success of their career can not be faulted for wanting to restore their appearance. These treatments do not come without their issues, the most commonly used drug to halt hair loss (Finasteride) is costly, and hair loss will catch up with you after you stop taking it. This drug is also used for treatment of prostate conditions and can cause irregularities with the gland.
All in all, male hair loss is a forced introspective event in our lives and nobody can fault which path you choose to take. Just remember that your decision should be yours alone, and not affected by the social norm or the pressures of others.
