Is your hair falling out in the shower? Follow our advice
Hair loss is something that happens to a lot of men but welcomed by very few. It can affect your confidence and acts as a stark reminder that you’re getting older; despite the fact it can happen to men of all ages.
Hair loss is primarily caused by two different hormones: dihydrotestosterone (DHT) and cortisol. DHT is derived from testosterone, the male sex hormone responsible for your development. DHT binds itself to susceptible hair follicles, weakening them and inhibiting their growth until eventually, they cease to grow at all. Cortisol, on the other hand, is a hormone brought about by stress. In small doses, it’s actually a good thing, and part of our ‘fight or flight’ mechanism. In today’s modern environment it acts a performance enhancer, increasing our reflexes and awareness. But continued stress produces too much and our body stops producing other hormones in favour of cortisol; including those that cause your hair to grow.
However, helps is at hand, simply by changing your shampoo and upgrading your shower routine.
- Before jumping into the shower, apply a topical hair prevention solution, such as Provillus. All good hair prevention formulas contain a potent compound called minoxidil, which is shown to prevent hair loss and strengthen your hair and Provillus is no different in this regard.
- Instead of any, old shampoo, select one that’s high in nutrients known for helping to grow, maintain, and repair your hair. This includes vitamins and minerals like zinc, niacin, biotin, vitamin B6, and sawtooth pimento. You can give your hair a helping hand, by searching out foods that are high in these nutrients too. Additionally, Provillus’ method of treatment involves a dietary supplement high in these nutrients and others. To discover more about what to look for in an effective shampoo, click here.
