Want to know how to reduce hair fall by making simple changes in your habits?

Hairfall can be disturbing. Many men suffer from androgenic alopecia which is an inherited disorder i.e if your father or grandfather have had the issue of hair loss at an early age, then you are likely to suffer from it too.

Hair health plays a major role in our overall personality. Men tend to be mentally affected and face a loss of confidence if they have hair fall issues.

Coping with hair fall can be difficult, but its not impossible to slow hair loss progression down. Here are some simple ways to do the same:

Stress definitely speeds up the process of hair loss. Stress leads to the generation of free radicals that damage one's DNA and are harmful for the body. It also weakens our immune system and hence, must be eliminated.

Well, how can we do that?

Firstly, always think with a positive mindset. This will drastically help reduce stress, which in turn will reduce hair loss.

Meditation is a great way to get rid of stress. In fact, it is an equivalent of relaxation, freeing your mind and learning to be calm. It provides both, clarity and a heightened sense of well-being. Meditation has many health benefits, it can lower blood pressure, manage anxiety and strengthen the immune system. Serotonin levels are increased through it, elevating one's mood.

Sleeping well and on time is necessary for healthy hair growth. Meditation is also said to help with insomnia i.e all those who have sleep issues or those suffering from stress induced sleep disorders.

Just 15-20 minutes of meditation per day and the results begin to show within about two months. All you need to do is take some personal time out from your busy schedule, place a mat on the floor and get to it!

Meditation indirectly improves blood circulation in the body. Through this, more and more growth factors and essential nutrients reach hair follicles leading lead to hair growth.

If you are experiencing male pattern hair loss or androgenic alopecia, then mediation can benefit you in miraculous ways.

Make sure to remember that eliminating stress from your life can lead to wonderful results and will slow down the process of hair loss.
