Male Hair Loss Prevention

HOW TO PREVENT HAIR LOSS in men

The first signs of hair thinning, shedding, or hair loss are unsettling. Keep in mind that it's typical to shed around 50-150 strands of hair every day. Sometimes, hair falls more readily and you may feel powerless to prevent it from happening.

The cause of hair loss may be unclear, but genetics, stress, hormones, nutrition, seasonal changes, health, and medical illness shape your hair. An effective treatment plan will consider all the above factors to help you retain hair.Additionally, you may need to strengthen your scalp with cosmetic solutions that revitalize the hair follicles. Whether you have a full head of hair or are suffering from a hair loss issue, preventative care creates a healthy scalp that grows strong, thriving hairs. 

DETECTION OF HAIR LOSS

Being in the dark about the root of hair loss is disconcerting, so it's helpful to first consult with a dermatologist. During your appointment, they'll examine your health and medical history. When there's a clear cause of hair loss, the dermatologist can work with you on an effective treatment plan, and you may seek additional consultation from a nutritionist or medical doctor.

Of course, the goal is to prevent male hair loss, and there are several measures you can take, including:

  • A DNA test to determine if there is a genetic predisposition to hair loss.
  • An investigation of medical and family history, stress levels, nutrition, exercise routine, and any recent, significant life events.
  • Lab work and blood tests to determine if there are any nutritional deficiencies, abnormalities or hormonal imbalances
  • A comparison of your hair against the Norwood Scale to decipher if your symptoms align with Male Pattern Baldness.
  • A Hair-Pull Test, a process in which your doctor will grasp a small portion of your hair and gently pull along the length of the hair shaft to assess how many strands shed.

HOW TO  care & PREVENT FURTHER HAIR LOSS

The scalp is part of the body’s largest organ, and it’s home to your hair follicles. Think of your scalp like a car engine: it needs oil, regular tune-ups, and maintenance to run optimally. However, without care, it’ll blow up and be out of commission. Your scalp is the lifeblood of your follicles and hair strands. When you nurture it, hair generally grows naturally. Implement the following strategies to retain hair, prevent male hair loss, and feel secure in your healthy scalp. Keep in mind that to have healthy hair extends beyond physical wellbeing into emotional and mental health, as well.

Physical & Emotional Health

Instinctually, hair care revolves around physical health. However, hair longevity depends on your emotional health also. 

Here's what you can do:

Exercise regularly: 

The human body craves movement because exercise releases nutrients, oxygen, and blood to flow freely throughout the body. Healthy blood circulation regulates the hair growth cycle. Exercise does wonders on stress, tension, and emotional disturbances.

Manage stress level: 

Stress accounts for 75-90% of all human diseases, according to a study by Frontiers in Human Neuroscience. Chronic stress can cause hair loss, which is why it's paramount to neutralize stress with calming activities or hobbies like sports, reading, chess, or playing with the kids.

Nutrition

We all know that food is the fuel that helps you sustain a long, healthy life. A diet rich in protein, leafy greens, and omega fatty acids helps you thrive from essential vitamins and nutrients. Your hair follicles also benefit, as they feed on nutrients from protein, iron, lipids, minerals, and B-vitamins. Consult with your doctor or nutritionist for guidance on a nutrition and supplementation plan.

When we talk about diet, it's easy to overlook the source of our existence: water. It might seem superfluous to say, but water is essential because we are 60% water. When we fail to drink two liters of water a day, dehydration, dryness, and hair shed occur. Combine a balanced diet with adequate water intake to fuel your body—and hair —with the nutrients it craves.

Washing, Conditioning & Drying Hair

Regular washing and conditioning keep the scalp nourished, moisturized, and healthy. Of course, the products you use can make or break the vitality and appearance of your hair. The goal is to eliminate product buildup that clogs the hair follicles and prevents them from growing hair. You also want to consider your drying habits because blow-drying, abrasive brushing and towel drying can stress out your follicles.

How's how to safely wash, condition, and dry hair:

  • Use INTACT, an Anti Hair Shedding Treatment, prior to washing hair. This pre-wash treatment retains and protects hair from the stress and pulling of washing and styling hair by securing hair on the scalp and minimizing shedding up to 77% after just one use.
  • Avoid products filled with mystery ingredients like alcohol, silicons, and polymers that weigh hair down and tug at the hair follicles. 
  • Choose products that contain biotin, panthenol, and enriching emollients that nourish the roots and minimize buildup or dryness.
  • If there’s a buildup of water minerals, chlorine or salt, a demineralizing shampoo can break down and wash away residue.
  • Use a leave-in conditioner to make combing hair more manageable.
  • Dry damp hair by gently squeezing hair, and use a microfiber towel to absorb water from hair, rather than pulling at hair to dry it.
  • Comb hair in sections with a wide-tooth comb.
  • Be consistent with topical treatments and cosmetic solutions. You'll experience the best results by following the manufacturer's guidance for dosage and frequency.

Styling

Hair follicles are tough and resilient, but your hygiene habits can tax them unnecessarily. Here are some no-fuss styling tips to optimize your hair health while styling.

Here's what you can do:

  • Avoid blow dryers. Instead, let your hair air dry. 
  • Choose an easy styling routine that revitalizes your scalp. When in doubt, apply a root securing complex like INTACT, then wash and condition, and let your hair air dry. 
  • If you have a strict styling routine, schedule days off for your hair to rebound from products and blow-drying.
  • If you color treat your hair, try using natural alternatives that don’t contain toxic chemicals. Otherwise, consider rocking your natural color -- salt and pepper is all the rage, as proven by George Clooney and Steve Carell.
  • If you have long hair, wear it down, or shorten it to a manageable length. Long hair is heavier than short hair and can pull at the hair follicles.

HOW TO PROTECT YOUR HAIR

Daily preventative care invigorates your scalp with the stamina to go the distance. In addition to regular hair care, grab a proven-effective product that shows up for your hair every day.

Love my Follea Rene - and the amazing customer service!

I considered purchasing a wig for years as my hair became increasingly thin. I finally decided the time was right and I’m so thankful to have found Follea. I purchased the Rene 12 inch in Caramel Latte and I absolutely love it – both the color and style are perfect. Stylist consultant, Tracy Romo, was so incredibly supportive and knowledgeable -- she walked me through every step of the process. She assisted with measurements and answered all of my questions via video calls. I can’t say enough about the amazing customer service I experienced from beginning to end. Tracy guided me in the right direction every step of the way, even sending me helpful videos and styling tips. I honestly couldn’t be happier with my experience.

Easy Beauty!

My Follea Style (6-11) is in all honesty the most comfortable wig I've ever worn - and I hate anything on my head! This wig just... goes where it's supposed to, no pulling it this way or that, no realizing your doggone wig is crooked.. AFTER you walk in to work. This success is in no small part to the Fit Kit I was sent to make sure of my size. 😊

Also, to say the hair is beautiful gives beauty a bad name. The hair is stunning. (I wear color Latte.) My consultant, Ashley, virtually took my hand to guide me through the process of buying my wig. Her help was and still is invaluable.

My hairdresser is very comfortable styling wigs. She created just the right "style" for my Style. That said, even straight from the box, Follea rocks!

Reading your Follea experience warms our hearts, our goal and mission is to help women all over the world feel beautiful, confident and like their best self. Ashley is an amazing and knowlegable guide, that will continue to be with you on your hair journey!

We invite you to join our @Follea community on Instagram, to learn best practices for your new Follea.

Thank you very much!

Love,

Daniel Alain Team

Wig #6

The ready to wear wig I received from Daniel Alain is beautiful. The packaging was so respectful of the wig. So impressed. I called with questions before purchasing and the staff was very kind and respectful as Loosing my hair was so unexpected and stressful. Thank you for wonderful customer service and a beautiful wig. So many compliments on how it makes me look. Thank you.

We are honored and so glad to hear you had a pleasant experience! Thank you or trusting us to help you during your hair-loss journey.

Thank you !

I had an amazing experience with purchasing a wig with Follea.
I can’t say enough about Tracy and the VIP service I got from her. She was always there on the other side of the phone , no matter what day or time and help me every step of the way!
I have never had such great customer service in any of the other leading wig companies I bought wigs from. Hands down the best!
Thank you

Thank you very much for sharing - it means the world to know that you had an exceptional experience with Tracy.

Tracy Romo is a life changer!

When you first go through your personal hair loss journey, you go through so many emotions and sometimes you get desperate. People like to take advantage of those searching for an answer. After making a very costly mistake, Tracy was a game changer for me! She was amazing, very knowledgeable and helped me understand what to look for, how to ensure I got the right size, face timed me to measure and ensure it was correct. I cannot say enough amazing things about Tracy, and my amazing Follea wig.

Kim, Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience Daniel Alain. It warms our heart to hear to Tracy was such a positive impact. We would love to see your new hair debut, tag us on instagram @Follea.

Style 10 Inch Color 5005 Macchiato (comes with a soft rooting)

This is my first wig but not my first attempt with alternative hair. Its been a journey and one I knew I wanted to take with Follea. I was not wrong. The hair is silky soft and beautifully shiny. The staff is great and wonderful to work with. Their online consultation process is just what I needed. I received sample caps to try on to determine which size is the right size for me. I received color swatches as well to make the color selection process was a breeze. It does make a difference to see to the colors in person, dont be afraid to ask for color swatches. To see them against the light or while your home is worth it. All this happened after the online consultation, which was simple and fun. The rep provided samples of everything, explained the differences with each one. This helped me make a decision on what was right for me. Getting the samples of the wig caps and color swatches was a fun part of the experience but it also made me feel good about my decisions. I often worry about getting the wrong size and color. Once I was set ( and yes I changed my mind a bit) we went forward with the order. After I received my wig and cut the lace, the team was still there to help me with any questions I had.

Overall a great online purchasing experience. Once I received my Follea, I instantly knew this was it for me. I loved it and I was confident to wear it out.

Feeling Myself and Happy with a beautiful Follea Style, 10", Irish Cream

There are no words to fully express how grateful I am for finding Follea and meeting Janet. Her kindness combined with a professional, yet so gentle, advice helped me to find my beautiful natural looking European hair. Janet patiently showed me different styles and sizes (my head is so small!). She has never pushed me to anything. Only offered support and help on the way to my decision, and eventually ordered (incredibly urgently) the right size. I wish all patients to meet someone like Janet on their way! Before I found Follea, I faced a few horrible pushy people who wanted to make money of my sensitive, fragile situation of suddenly losing hair.
Today, I can face the Universe with a smile, again. I am back to work and normal life, interacting with people, attending important business meetings. Letting my health recover in calm confident state.
Thank You to Follea and Janet. May the Blessing and Kindness come back to You Multiplied Million Times.
I am already thinking of ordering a second Follea Style (bit longer this time). Every girl needs a special occasion HAIR! I have found mine.

Follea's Petite

Recently, I bought the Petite in Chai Latte blonde with a natural-looking darker root and customized my piece by adding a few wispy bangs. If you are like me and try to stretch the length of time between washes to prevent an itchy scalp and breakage, this little priceless gem is a quick four clips away from a good hair day.
