Hair Loss Dos And Don'ts

* Don't be aggressive with your hair by drying it forcefully or using a bristled brush.
* Never sport a comb over, and keep your hair short.
* Once you realize you're losing your hair, don't hesitate: Get a consultation.

When mother nature knocks, she arrives early and means business. The process of male pattern baldness can commence at age 21, and by 35, over two-thirds of men will show some signs of significant hair loss. But life doesn’t have to leave you with a degenerating doughnut hole on your head (like a bull's-eye awaiting its arrow or a prisoner begging to be released). These yeas and nays are on target to set you free from the harrows hair loss.

Do dry hair gently:
Beating up your hair with a rough towel and vigorous rubbing can cause serious damage. Physical force breaks off finer hairs, and newly emerging ones don’t even get a chance to survive. Use a super soft cloth and pat rather than rub the hair to rid it of excess moisture after bathing.

Don't use a bristled brush for styling:
Styling time usually comes after a shower when hair is wet and in its most fragile state. Needless to say, tearing tracks down your scalp with a bristly brush isn’t the best idea. The only styling tool a man needs nowadays is his bare hands.

Do keep hair short:
It’s time to say goodbye to those luscious locks you’ve been holding on to since college. Age is setting in, and things are thinning upstairs. Longer hairstyles only serve to accentuate what’s already gone, but a closer crop will maximize coverage, leaving no one the wiser. And if the situation is dire, go for the gusto: Hair for men is optional.

Don't comb it over:
Two words: Donald Trump. See the "do" above on keeping hair short in order to avoid this sad (and ineffective) strategy for handling hair loss.

Do try hair loss-prevention products:

Most treatments for hair loss leave much to be desired. Balding concealer (scalp spray paint) quickly comes to mind. But sometimes the most obvious and effective choices for treatment get roped in with the fast fixes that don’t work. While other products have come and gone, tried-and-true Rogaine remains. Its special ingredient, minoxidil, is still one of the only scientifically proven methods for staving off hair loss and, yes, can even regrow hair.

Don't overdo it with styling products:
Gels, pastes and putties serve a purpose: They help smooth hair and hold it in place. But nothing is worse for drawing unwanted attention to a scarce scalp than glopping on goo. Strands of hair end up clumping together only to bare all for world to see. Lay it on light to keep things covered up.
