How To Prevent Thinning Hair

Some  guys can get away with it…

Why is it that guys with thinning hair just end up looking so much worse than men who are just plain bald. Look at that guy from on of my favorite TV shows, “The Shield”. He looks great bald, like a real bad dude that can handle his business, yet, if he had just some thinning hair on top of his head, he would probably not look as cool. When it comes to hair, there is not an in between phase that really works: you can either a good head of hair or go chrome dome.

And, if you do not think you can rock the bald man style as well as Micheal Chiklis, or that Joe the plumber guy, you might want to consider taking steps in getting yourself a thicker head of hair.


The first step in stopping thinning hair is to stop it before it happens. While losing your hair might be genetic, your diet and various habits might be causing you to lose your hair at a earlier age.

Take my cousin for a prime example of this. He started out with already pretty thin hair, and it got worse as he became a teenager. His steady diet of junk food and pack a day smoking habit certainly was not helping him keep is hair until at least his mid twenties.

He started using a hair thickening shampoo, but it only helped a little bit. What he really needed to do was stop the smoking and start eating better. His bad habits were starving his follicles, keeping the nutrients that that they needed from actually reaching them.

According to our bodies, our hair comes in pretty low on the the priority scale and if we are not getting enough vitamins and minerals , it is the first thing to suffer.  Now my cousin wears “Bears” cap wherever he goes to the point that people think he is a super hard core football fan. Scary thing is, the guy doesn’t even like football that much.

Its never too late

Using a over the counter thickening shampoo, such as Vive for men, is a first good step by my cousin, but what he really needs to do is to take a look at some options that might help him regrow some healthy hair not just thicken up the ones he has left. They way his head is now, it would probably be worth it to give a scalp treatment that contains Minoxidil a try.

Minoxidil has been scientifically proven to help people regrow lost hair and topical solutions that contain it are readily available at any store where you might find hair care products or even online. The more popular name brands that contain Minoxidil are Rogaine, Regaine and of course Provillus.

Provillus, a treatment exclusively found online, might be the best answer for my cousin’s thinning hair problem because of its unique  approach to hairloss. While Provillus does supply a topical solution that contains Minoxidil, it also provides a daily supplment that is loaded with various nutrients and and minerals that will help feed the hair follicles from the inside.

While kicking his junk food and cigarette habit will be a first big step, this daily tablet which contains things like biotin and saw palmetto, will help ensure that his hair is getting the what it need to live up to its  potential.Lets face it, not everyone can rock the bald look and a nice head of hair is important for our self image, especially when we are young and single.

If you have thinning hair, it is important that you take step immediately to help curb it.  changing your diet and controlling your stress levels will help as will using a supplement like the one provided with Provillus.
