For many people, thinning hair and hair loss can creep up on us with age. It can sometimes be hard to notice when we see ourselves every day that our hair just isn’t what it used to be. Sometimes it even takes another person pointing it out to you before you really begin to grapple with the fact that you’re experiencing hair loss. [Read more…] about Tired Of Self-Treating?

Protein is one of the nutrients your body needs to have (amongst other things) strong and healthy hair. Keratin is one of those proteins. It’s not the kind of protein you get eating meat, nuts, or fish… rather it’s a protein that your body naturally produces. [Read more…] about Keratin And Hair Loss
It’s that time of year again. Men all over the country are opting to hold off shaving for the whole month as a part of No-Shave November. This year is going to be a bit different though.

What we put in our bodies affects our whole body. A healthy diet where you’re taking in the necessary vitamins and nutrients has a positive effect on your overall well-being – a higher probability of healthy skin, nails, and yes, healthy hair. Malnutrition has the opposite effect. [Read more…] about Protein And Hair Loss
There are many reasons why people lose their hair. Hair loss does not discriminate against age, gender, or ethnic background. It also manifests in different forms depending on the reason for the hair loss; receding hairlines, male pattern baldness, hair thinning, and patches of hair loss.
So, what are some of the top reasons for hair loss?
We focus heavily on male pattern baldness being hereditary, but genetics is the primary cause of hair loss through androgenetic alopecia regardless of gender. In fact, by age 50, about half of all people will have experienced some degree of androgenetic alopecia.
There are quite a few myths revolving around genetics and hair loss. One such example is the common myth for men that the men on your maternal side of the family are a reliable indicator of how baldness will affect you as you age. While the X chromosome that you get from your mother’s side of the family is still considered the dominant genetic indicator of future hair loss, research has also shown that you are more likely to experience male pattern baldness if your father experienced it.
What we put into our bodies is incredibly important for properly maintaining them. For many of us, it’s easy to let a fast-paced life between work and family get in the way of making sure we have a properly balanced diet. We need these nutrients to help create and maintain a healthy head of hair.
When we aren’t getting enough of certain nutrients, we are increasing our risks of avoidable hair loss. These vitamins and nutrients include:
- Vitamins B6 and B12
- and Omega-3 Fatty Acids
Rapid and unhealthy crash dieting for weight loss can also lead to hair loss. If you cut out too many calories and nutrients for your body to function properly, you can cause telogen effluvium hair loss – or even expedite male or female pattern baldness.
Similarly, stress is a major contributing factor to hair loss. It’s something we’ve all heard before, but even knowing that it can still be difficult to manage.
A major cause of your day-to-day stress may be your job. Some of the more stressful jobs out there for people include:
- Social workers
- 911 dispatchers
- Construction workers
- Therapists, and more
If you find yourself having a difficult time managing your stress, you may be at risk of telogen effluvium-related hair loss. Finding healthy outlets for your stress is key not only to avoid unnecessary hair loss but for increasing your overall quality of life.

The sun is important to our health. Vitamin D is an essential nutrient that we take into our bodies primarily through exposure to the sun. It stimulates cell growth, keeps our skin healthy, and even helps to create hair follicles. In fact, Vitamin D is so important to our skin and hair that a lack of it can cause hair loss through alopecia. [Read more…] about Sun Exposure And Hair Loss
Many of us find ourselves closely examining our hair from time to time to make sure it is still all there. It can be easy to over-analyze and look at anything as a sign of balding. For instance, as men get older their hairline matures… which is different from a receding hairline. This happens naturally as men go from their teenage years into adulthood with their hairline climbing up about an inch. [Read more…] about Early Signs Of Balding
