If you’re thinning on top and are wondering what you can do about it, these hair loss prevention secrets could be just the ticket. Culprits which cause hair loss vary, but with these top tips, you can combat your fading follicles and keep baldness at bay.

  1. You are what you eat

Hair is mostly made up of protein. Therefore, it’s a great idea to boost your diet with protein rich foods such as; eggs, Greek yoghurt, and poultry. Another food that’s fantastic for hair growth is anything containing omega-3 fatty acids. Sources include oily fish and walnuts. Iron is also good for keeping your scalp healthy, so add some dark leafy greens to your diet, as well as red meat and shellfish.


  1. Take your medicine

For the majority of men these days, hair loss can be managed with medicine. There are various options currently on the market and it is definitely advisable to get your treatment from a reputable source. Some medications are prescription only and it is an excellent idea to talk to your doctor about the potential side effects that hormone altering drugs have.


If the side effects of these drugs are too much of a risk for you, there are some more natural alternatives out there. However, always be aware that there are a lot of scams around, so do your research and try to find unbiased reviews of the products.
