Learn the best ways to prevent hair loss.
One of the perennial fears of men as they age is the lingering question: Will I lose my hair? Balding is something that most people feel they have little control over. It’s all genetics, it’s about people who are genetically blessed and those who have been genetically “cursed.”
How PRP Can Restore Hair
What most people don’t know is there is more to hair loss than meets the eye. Actually, what we mean is that there is more you can do to prevent hair loss than you think. There is no reason to lose hope when your hair starts to thin. The besthair loss solution is PRP for hair restoration.
PRP for hair regrowth is a solution to hair loss that is natural and works. This simple in-office, non-surgical, autologous treatment that is derived from the patient’s own blood and can be performed in about an hour. PRP contains growth factors that are responsible for stimulating and enhancing hair follicle function. Small injections of the PRP deliver the powerful platelet-derived growth factors into the skin at the level of the weak follicles.
More than PRP for Hair Restoration: Three Foods to Eat to Stop Hair Loss
But you don’t have to rely only on PRP for hair restoration. You can also change your diet to help prevent additional hair loss. These are some of the best foods you can eat to stop hair loss!
- Salmon. Hair is a protein fiber (as are nails), which means you need to eat protein to grow new strands and keep the existing ones strong. Protein is also required to produce keratin, a key structural component of hair. A smart choice is a marine-based protein, like salmon, which can boost hair health because of its omega-3 fatty acids and vitamins.
- Oysters. Zinc seems to be a super nutrient when it comes to preventing and treating hair loss.One study that examined the zinc and copper levels in 312 men and women experiencing hair loss. No matter the cause of the hair loss, all subjects had significantly lower zinc levels than controls. But fortunately, zinc supplementation and eating plenty of zinc-rich foods can slow hair loss in the majority of these cases, so it’s a good idea to start eating more oysters. They contain more zinc per serving than any other food.
- Honey. Honey can be used as a topical treatment to improve the look of thinning hair. Because it is an emollient it seals moisture in your hair, keeping it conditioned. This reduces breakage, which is often a cause for slower hair growth. It also has rich antioxidant properties which prevent damage, keeping your scalp and hair healthy.
These are all great foods to help minimize and prevent additional hair loss, but they are best used in conjunction with PRP for hair restoration. PRP is a more effective method than traditional hair loss treatments, and patients have seen results in natural new hair growth in as few as 3 treatments, sometimes even after the first. If you think that PRP might be the right treatment option for you, or if you have more questions don’t hesitate to contact Dr. Stuart A. Kauffman.
