Whether you’ve recently started to notice a receding hairline or you’ve mastered ways to cover up your bald patch with the way you style your hair, male hair loss is a stressful situation.
Actually, on average, 50% of a man’s hair is gone before they even begin to notice the hair loss.
Regardless of what stage you’re at in the hair loss cycle or what the reasons are, baldness in men can cause a great amount of stress and result in insecurities about your appearance.
Once your hair looks a little lacklustre, you’re bound to seek out hair loss solutions to avoid further damage.
Thankfully, there are solutions that help combat male hair loss, or at least give you a chance to rejuvenate the health of your hair.

11 Ways to Slow Down Hair Loss
1. Scalp Massage
Scalp and head massages are a great way to improve blood circulation, which is great for the health of your scalp.
What this does is it helps keep hair follicles active that may have been blocked. It’s best to massage using coconut, olive, or almond oil for a head massage as these ingredients have scalp rejuvenating properties.
If you’re really looking to relax while taking care of those hair follicles, warm up the oil before your scalp massage. Hot oil massages will really help fight some of the stress that baldness can cause and help you relax.
2. Coconut Milk, Coconut Oil, Almond Oil, Castor Oil and Olive Oil
These ingredients are used in many Ayurvedic treatments and massages to deal with a multitude of issues related to male hair loss.
Coconut milk contains a high percentage of oil and should be applied to the scalp and massaged thoroughly for up to 5 minutes.
The longer the massage, the better blood circulation. While applying coconut milk, focus on the application on the scalp and then ends. Using pure coconut milk to massage is meant to help with hair growth. Focusing on the hair strands and ends helps because it revives the existing hair, giving it thickness, shine and a softer texture.
Once the scalp is covered, cover with a towel to prevent drips. Leave in hair like you would treat for 20 minutes or more and when you’re ready, rinse out with cold water.
As far as coconut, castor, olive, or almond oil is concerned, they contain lauric acid, caprylic acid and other nutrients that nourish your scalp. If you’d like, you can mix coconut oil with Amla oil or powder (Indian Gooseberry that nourishes and keeps the hair strong) and massage on your scalp. Again, focus on the roots of your hair with an oil treatment and pull through to the ends.
Not only does help keep your existing hair health, but also keeps your scalp conditioned and rids any dandruff issues you may have. You can leave these oils in your hair for as long as you’d like. You should try to leave the oils in for at least 3 hours but it’s ideal to leave it on overnight, really allowing your scalp time to heal.
3. Apple Cider Vinegar
Rinsing your hair with vinegar, or apple cider vinegar more specifically, can help clear out the bacteria on your scalp and condition your hair. Make sure you use raw, organic, unfiltered apple cider vinegar or vinegar so that you avoid unnecessary chemicals.
After shampooing, apply apple cider vinegar and massage your scalp and hair. Avoid your eyes as the contact will make your eyes burn. An easy way to do so is to pull your head back or use a spray bottle to distribute the liquid through your hair.
Leave the apple cider vinegar in your hair for 5 minutes, like you would a conditioner and then rinse out with cold water to give your hair shine.
If you’d like, you can mix herbs like rosemary for hair growth as one hair loss solution. Use this treatment instead of conditioner 2-3 times a week or as frequently as you wash your hair. What it does is treat clogged hair follicles and strengthens the root to promote hair growth.

Only Way to Look and Feel Good Again
4. Diet and Nutrients
Male hair loss can also result from an imbalance of protein, iron, or other nutrients in the body. You should focus on consuming foods like vegetables, dairy products, fish and poultry if your diet results in an iron or protein deficiency.
Many men find that red meat is important because it is the richest source of ferritin, which helps the body produce hair cell protein.
Making sure that you’re aware of what your body needs and are making adjustments based on your health requirements can help ensure your hair and overall body is healthy.
5. Herbal Treatments
Neem, rosemary, henna leaves, alfalfa, amla and other easy-to-find herbs work wonders as hair treatments mixed with oils or in paste form. Using these treatments once a week or a few times a month can promote a healthier scalp and thicken existing hair for men.
We’re going to discuss, specifically, the benefits of each individual herb in a follow-up blog.
However, if you get your hands on any of these useful herbs, be sure and give them a try and see how they suit you.
