7 Natural Ways to Reduce Men’s Hair Loss

Research suggests that 70% of the male population will lose their hair as they get older, with half set to experience this by the age of 50. 

While hair loss is a natural part of the ageing process, there are many ways that men can reduce losing their hair overtime and retain their self-confidence. What’s more, many of these methods don’t involve taking any medications or undergoing invasive – and often expensive – hair transplants. 

Dr Earim Chaudry, Medical Director at men’s health platform Manual shares some key advice on how to limit hair loss in men using the natural methods outlined below:  

  1. Eat a balanced diet 

Healthy hair starts with a healthy diet. When it comes to preventing hair loss with your diet, make sure you’re consuming foods that are packed with vitamins and minerals. These include: 

  • Foods rich in iron, including green leafy vegetables, eggs, beans, and grains
  • High-protein foods, including lean meats and seafood
  • Food rich in omega-3 acids, such as fish, flax seeds and walnuts 

In addition, it is especially recommended that you stay hydrated throughout the day to maintain healthy hair. 

  1. Regularly wash your hair with mild shampoo 

Regularly washing your hair with shampoos that are free from sulphates, parabens and mineral oils will prevent hair loss. By washing your hair with mild shampoos, you are keeping the scalp clean and lowering the risk of infections that may result in hair breakage or loss. 

  1. Avoid hot showers

While there is no medical evidence that hot showers contribute to hair loss, it is still important to be cautious. This is because taking a really hot shower may have the power to strip the scalp of the essential oils that help to protect it. This can cause dryness, inflammation and could also result in the thinning of your hair. 

  1. Refrain from brushing wet hair 

Your hair is in its weakest state when wet, so it’s best to avoid brushing wet hair if you are aiming to reduce hair loss. There is also a danger of brushing your hair too frequently, as doing this could increase the chances of your hair becoming injured,  encouraging further loss. 

  1. Exercise regularly 

Exercising, especially on a frequent basis, will improve blood flow to the scalp area and this could help prevent forms of hair loss. In addition, exercise will reduce your stress levels, something to keep in mind due to the direct correlation between hair loss and stress

  1. Avoid smoking and reduce alcohol consumption 

As tobacco can potentially damage your hair follicles, ditching the cigarettes will help to reduce your hair loss. Cutting down on  alcohol consumption will also do favours for your hair. Despite the fact that there’s no proven link between alcohol use and hair loss, heavy drinking can in fact lead to nutritional deficiencies or hormonal issues, which in turn can thin out your remaining locks.  

  1. Change how you style your hair 

Hairstyles such as ponytails and braids tend to pull hair or tug hair follicles, which could eventually lead to baldness. As well as this, regularly using tools such as blow dryers and straighteners can cause thermal damage to your hair. Down the line, this will lead to breakage and result in hair loss. With this in mind, it may be time to think about healthier and less damaging ways to style your hair if you prefer a longer style.

Secondly, we really liked the way the notes of violet and rose with the leather and sandalwood have been added together. Those combinations make it really special.

Finally, the ‘cherry on the cake’ is the sugar notes that (personally) made me love it.

Revive and Thrive at Goodwood Revival

It takes place every year and this is a must go event!

Recreating the glamour of motor racing as it used to be, the Motor Circuit comes alive for the Revival, both on and off the historic track. The only historic race meeting to be staged entirely in period dress, the Revival sees a return to the halcyon days of Goodwood as the spiritual home of British motor racing.

Dress code

Although not compulsory, the vast majority of Revival visitors dress in period style with many going to great lengths to achieve that authentic look. The resulting step-back-in-time spectacle plays a key role in making the Revival such a unique event.

While you’re not required to dress up (unless you qualify for central Paddock access, in which case a jacket and tie is necessary for gentlemen, and a dress or suit for the ladies), you’ll feel much more involved if you do. And whether you go for the slick urban look, gentrified country style or chocs-away military aesthetic, it’s not difficult or costly to dress appropriately.

It almost feels like you are on a Hollywood set!

It’s a celebration of bygone days, vintage fashion and wheel-to-wheel racing around this classic circuit, which remains unchanged since its heyday.

(Below) Our friends from Private White V.C.

While there is standing space all around the track, racing fans will prefer a Grandstand pass for covered and raised viewing of all the action on track.

Roy Salvadori – British Driver

“Give me Goodwood on a summer’s day, and you can forget the rest fo the world”

Opening Times

The action on the circuit commences at 0845hrs on each day of the event. Gates open at 0730hrs, which provides a great opportunity to look around the paddocks before the action begins.

See you in 2022

allPaws Organic Shampoo for Pets

allPaws by Green People is the UK’s first certified organic range of pet grooming products

Let’s talk about pets for a change.

Crafted with care for those that are dog-tired of exposing their pets to synthetic ingredients, allPaws is the NEW organic, cruelty-free pet grooming range from Green People.

Offering fur-freshening grooming products that transform mucky pups into pristine pooches, the products in the allPaws pet care range are made with gently cleansing, pH-balanced natural actives that are sustainably sourced and suitable for all dog and cat breeds.

The pet-approved products are also certified organic and vegan-friendly, making it easy for pet owners to provide creature companions with a planet and pet-friendly bath time routine that won’t irritate sensitive skin.

A natural way to provide faithful hounds and long- haired cats with a plant-based pet spa treatment, Green People’s allPaws pet care range is launching with a duo of naturally cleansing pet washes.

Designed for pups that love nothing more than getting back to nature by playing in muddy puddles, the shampoos come in a choice of scented or scent-free formulas and cost £14.00 for a 200ml tube that’s made with eco-friendly sugar cane plastic.

The two shampoos:

Cleansing Shampoo – Wild Mint

This organic dog shampoo freshens musty mongrel smells with a soothing blend of Mint and Eucalyptus bath bubbles which leave fur soft and fragrant without irritating delicate skin. Suitable for all breeds and pups aged 12 weeks or older.

What we liked: the eco-friendly packaging, the silk texture and the very light scent (just enough but not too much!).

Sensitive Shampoo


This unscented shampoo is designed for dogs with extra sensitive skin and does not contain any fragrance. Suitable for all breeds, this gentle formula is the perfect choice for a puppy’s first bath.

Much like Green People’s skin care range for humans, the pet grooming products are both SLS- free and highly concentrated with animal-safe plant actives, meaning a little goes a long way.

Where to find those

From £14.00 for 200ml and is available directly from www.GreenPeople.co.uk

Japan Automatic 3 Hands Movement with Date

Really glad at StylePilot to have received the Tesei SP-5084-11 from Spinnaker to review.

ABOUT THE COLLECTION

Updated and improved upon, the Tesei Titanium is now available as a bracelet. A host of subtle but important upgrades make this timepiece a true tribute to the spirit and ingenuity of Italian Naval legend Teseo Tesei.

What’s inside?

DIAL

True to its militaristic inspiration, the dial is designed to be efficient and effective at offering a clear cut read out of time. The hands in particular have been redesigned and upgraded with layerings of X-1 Swiss Super-LumiNova.

MATERIAL : Titanium
DIAMETER (mm) : 43
THICKNESS (mm) : 13
SHAPE : Round
COLOUR : Titanium
BEZEL : Unidirectional Bezel with Ceramic Plate


DESIGN

The Tesei case is forged out of the tensile strength but low density of Titanium. Hardened with Nitrogen and topped with a Ceramic inlaid bezel with luminous markings, every element of the design and fabrication has been carefully considered. A scratch resistant sapphire lens with anti-reflective coating makes this an effortless, durable and robust timepiece to wear for all conditions.

TYPE : Titanium Bracelet
COLOUR : Titanium
BUCKLE : Fold Over Buckle with Safety Lock and Push Button
WIDTH (mm) : 22

Powering and assuring an ever reliable performance from the Tesei, an NH35 Seiko Automatic lies at the heart of the watch.
