How to Prevent Hair Loss and Baldness – Dr. A. Nel
The medical term for male pattern baldness, is Alopecia or Androgenetic Alopecia. This condition involves the shrinking of hair follicles on the scalp, and the actual thinning of hair strands (causing a thinner appearance of hair growth), due to the smaller size of the follicle. The hair follicles will eventually become so small that there is little to no hair growth, and usually occur on the temples or back / crown of head. Androgenetic Alopecia is caused by a combination of genetics and how your hair follicles react to certain male hormones in the scalp.
Now that we have a better understanding of what causes baldness or as most people refer to it, hair loss, is there anything we can do to prevent it? There are a few things you can do to help prevent the early onset of Alopecia:
Steps to help prevent hair loss and baldness

This might sound obvious, but in order to determine whether you are experiencing a receding hair line or thinning of the hair on the scalp, you need to keep a close eye on your personal hair loss situation. Prevention is always better that cure – by monitoring your scalp and hair continuously you will be able to notice any changes and an early stage. Early action might be able to help you prevent further hair loss, by simply taking medication or changing your diet. Which brings us to the next point…
2. Watch your diet
A healthy diet is not only essential for your overall health, but can also greatly assist in the prevention of further hair loss. Your hair, scalp and hair follicles require certain vitamins and minerals to promote healthy hair growth. A poor diet can result in early hair loss, speeding up the onset of Alopecia. The three main vitamins and minerals you should include in your diet to maintain and promote healthy hair growth are protein, iron and Omega 3 & 6 fatty acids.
