Gain an Understanding to Hereditary Thinning:

Hereditary thinning or balding is also known as androgenetic alopecia. It is the most common cause of hair loss and can affect both women and men. However, men are more commonly affected. In women, the first sign might be a widening part or a feeling that the hair doesn't feel as thick as usual.

Genetics: The primary cause of hairline thinning is genetics.
Aging: With age, the rate at which the hair grows tends to slow down.

Tips to Overcome Genetic Hairline Thinning:

Nutritious Diet: Consuming a diet rich in vitamins A, B, C and E, iron, selenium, and zinc can contribute towards healthier hair. For example:

  • Carrots and sweet potatoes (Vitamin A)
  • Leafy greens like spinach (Iron, Vitamin C)
  • Eggs and poultry (Vitamin B, Selenium, Zinc)
  • Citrus fruits (Vitamin C)
  • Almonds and sunflower seeds (Vitamin E)
  • Oysters and beef (Zinc)
  • Brazil nuts (Selenium)

Hydration: Drinking plenty of water can help in maintaining the health and strength of hair.

  • About 15.5 cups (3.7 liters) of fluids a day for men
  • About 11.5 cups (2.7 liters) of fluids a day for women

Regular Exercise: Regular exercise boosts blood circulation, supporting hair growth.

  • Try to move around or exercise for 2 hours every week at a comfortable pace, or go for more intense activities for 1.5 hours weekly. Also, do exercises that make your muscles stronger twice a week.

Prevention and Remedies:

Use Gentle Hair Products: Opt for organic, natural, or plant-based hair products. They are gentle on the hair and can potentially minimize hair shedding.
Regular Scalp Massage: Massage can promote blood circulation, stimulating hair follicles for healthier growth.
