Seven Ways To Prevent Hair Loss [Infographic]

Losing your hair must really, really suck. I often spot baldies staring at me sadly as I run my fingers through my thick mane of lustrous curls. It's a majestic sight, so who can blame them? Fortunately, it's possible to combat hair loss via a range of natural hacks and treatments. This infographic explains seven common causes of baldness and how to fix them.

This infographic comes from the folicle boffins at Lloyds Pharmacy. As explained below, the cause of male hair loss can be broken down into three groups: genetic, lifestyle factors and skin conditions. Sadly, not all of the aforementioned causes are preventable, but it is possible for modern-day Samsons to mitigate the damage in various ways.

    Yeah, being bald sucks.

    I really miss having to get (and pay for) haircuts. And the additional spare time in the mornings not spent taming the mane is a real inconvenience.

    I often spot baldies staring at me sadly as I run my fingers through my thick mane of lustrous curls.
    I hate you so much.

    Im not even 30 and I look like a 'cliche uni professor' with the wrap around look starting leaving the top slowly thinning.
    I feel like the before shot of an 'advanced hair, yeah yeah' ad on Tv.
    My diet is great, genetics are a non issue (my grandfather has more hair than me), im a very passive person and my skin is in decent condition.
    There is only one possible explination... im adopted...

    Embrace the balding and grow a beard - same amount of hair, just on the other side of your head :)

    I have no sympathy for Man Bun wearing hippies wearing it too tight, they clearly have no idea how ridiculous they look. Plus, what's with this trend of shaving the sides of your head and leaving the top to grow wild?

    Yet the first 2 (of 7) reasons are things you can't do anything about!

    Please explain how I can change my genes or stop getting older.

      The solutions are on the right. First 2 the answer is tablets

        Minoxidil has been around for years and doesn't work. The other one must be new - never heard of it. If it was as claimed - at 90% I think everyone would have heard of it.

        So, another article with bad advice.

    I just had a gastric sleeve done and a bit worried that I will start loosing hair as I drop the weight, berocca only has so many vitamins in it, and can only drink so much. Will be so sad if I loose a lot of hair.

    If you do happen to suffer from Male Pattern Baldness, just try to channel Mitch Pileggi as AD Skinner in the X-Files. No other man has ever rocked this hairstyle with the power and panache as Pileggi.
