November 1st means the start of a month long campaign, No Shave November, that aims to raise awareness of men’s health, specifically cancer of the prostate. Here at NE Hair, we celebrate No Shave November by raising awareness of hair loss and the small steps you can take today to kickstart your hair growth and prevent hair loss.

Hair grows best when it is nourished

This means including plenty of Omega 3 fatty acids in your diet, which can be found in foods like salmon, avocado, nuts and olive oil. Individuals that stick to a low fat diet often times experience breakage, dullness, and overall unhealthy hair. Hair also requires protein, vitamin E, vitamin C, and biotin to truly thrive.

Protect your hair from heat

If you’re a guy who blow dry your hair often, you may want to consider using a heat protectant. Heat protectants – as the name suggests – insulates your strands of hair so that they are less likely to be damaged by high levels of heat from blowdryers, curlers, or straighteners.

Try Rogaine

Rogaine is an over the counter topical solution that retards hair loss and stimulates hair growth. It comes in 2% and 5% strength. Its mechanism of action is not well understood by healthcare professionals, which is why the team at NE Hair recommends combining Rogaine with a hair restoration surgery.

Try the NE Hair Topical Solution

Our team of physicians has created a unique formula consisting of 10% Minoxidil and Propecia that can be applied using a convenient spray bottle. We have found that this solution works best when combined with a hair restoration procedure.

Consult a physician

Hair loss or thinning is often times a hereditary condition, but can be an indication of other health conditions. Be sure to consult your doctor if you experience sudden hair loss, or are experiencing unusual symptoms.
