HOW TO COMBAT BALDING AND AGE GRACEFULLY
June 14, 2022
Experiencing hair loss can be a complex life event for the men effected. Sometimes balding is hereditary and other times there are other powers at play. In this article we take a look at how to combat balding and hopefully provide some useful tips to help balding men age more gracefully.
For men who are just starting to thin out, there could be an explanation besides genetics causing your balding and it’s worth investigating if you’d like to hold onto your head of hair.
A high level of stress is one unexpected cause of hair loss but there are a wide range of different, potential reasons. It may be as simple as not having enough iron, protein or zinc however it may also be something more complicated like thyroid disease, a scalp infection or even alopecia areata, which is an immune disease that attacks hair follicles.
If you can identify the cause of your hair loss, you can look at a potential cure. If it’s hereditary however, you are very limited in options and have medication, hair transplants or a toupee as your trio of choices. The other approach is to simply accept your position and embrace it, go for a hair style that compliments your changing hairline or simply shave it all off.
If you’re only thinning and do not yet net have a large bald spot, you can opt for a hairstyle that can conceal a receding hairline. A caesar cut / crop top is a great option and can be styled forward to great effect.
If your hair loss is substantial and you're not keen on going fully shaven, a buzz cut can provide a clean, simple and sleek solution. As a general rule, shorter hair will minimise the appearance of balding.
Going clean shaven has a range of benefits and works great for men with very large bald spots. You’ll never need to shampoo again and once your scalp gets a good sun tan on it, you’ll be looking right at home in your new signature style.
Ask Your Barber
Don’t be afraid to ask your barber for advise, after all they’ve seen it a thousand times before.
