Things Men with Thinning Hair Should Avoid

Things like stress, poor nutrition, and certain medicines can help contribute to male hair loss. Some of these are more easily resolvable than others.

When a man notices that his hair is beginning to thin, there are a few things that should be avoided because they tend to make the thinning hair worse:

• Products such as gels that clump hair together and allow more light to reflect off a bare scalp.

• Hair wax which is sticky and often leads to ripping out more hair by trying to work it throughout the scalp.

• Shampoos and conditioners that contain SLS (sodium laurel sulfate) which is a chemical that strips hair of essential oils, polyethylene glycol (also known as PEG, polyethylene, or polyoxyethelyne) which strips hair of moisture, DEA (diethanolamine) and TEA (triethanolamine) which destroy hair’s keratin and cause scalp irritation, a high concentration of alcohol because too much can dehydrate your hair, and greasing agents such as lanolin, petroleum, and mineral oil because they weigh down thin hair and prevent natural oils from being absorbed. Instead, consider quality shampoos and conditioners such as HairStart® Gentle Cleanse™ and HairStart® Condition25™.
