Hair fall occurs in both men and women, but it is more common and prevalent in men. When you suffer from it, you might notice your hairline receding or some bald patches of scalp here and there. Before you start to worry, it’s best to try to understand what’s causing it so that you can determine how to address it. While some hair fall in men is just a part of the ageing process, it could also mean that it’s come sooner for others.
Whichever of the two is causing your hair fall, consider following these tips to address the problem.
1. Towel-pat your hair to dry
We want to make our hair dry quickly, especially when we’re running late for work. However, rubbing your hair vigorously with a towel can cause friction and make you lose more hair. It’s best to just pat it dry with a microfiber towel or just let it air-dry naturally to keep from losing more strands.
2. Keep yourself hydrated
Keeping yourself hydrated is not only beneficial to your overall health, but it is also especially great for your skin (scalp is skin). This helps ensure that you have a good cell turnover. Because hair growth starts in the scalp, having healthy skin (and scalp) can help grow healthy and strong hair. So, if you can drink more than 8 glasses a day, the better it is.
