Baldness Drug Shows Promise And Danger In Fighting Cancer
NEW YORK- JUNE 26 - A balding man stands in Midtown Manhattan June 26, 2003 in New York City. Researchers have discovered that the baldness fighting drug Propecia, in higher doses, helps reduce the chance of getting prostate cancer among men. However, the study shows that men who do come down with the cancer are more likely to develope a more agressive strain of the disease. Prostate cancer kills nearly 29,000 men in the U.S annually.

One-third of the human population shares the same setback of having to deal with baldness. Each one of us is experiencing the loss of a few hair follicles on a daily basis which amounts to about 100 hair strands.

However, extreme hair loss could be due to genetics, medications, pollution or brought about by anxiety.

It has also been stated that regularly wearing a head cover is a primary reason for men.

Here we present 5 ways to prevent and deal with hair loss as cited in Men's Health.

1. Regularly wash your hair with mild shampoo as this promotes hair loss through having both of your hair and scalp clean. This practice helps lessen the presence of dandruff and other types of hair infections which is the source of hair loss and breakage. A shiny hair also gives you more volume.

2. Bear in mind to switch to a high-protein diet such as lean meats and fish as protein helps in condition of your hair.

3. Pamper your scalp with essential oils by massaging. For individuals who have already started experiencing hair loss, concentrate the massage more on the affected area as it aids in having your follicles activated. To further relish the experience one can complement the process by putting lavender in an almond or sesame oil.

4. Importantly, pass up brushing your hair when it is still wet as a wet hair brings on a weak state to the hair follicles. If necessary, use a comb which is wide-toothed and use your fingers to untangle unruly hair.5. Rub either garlic juice, onion juice or ginger juice on your scalp and leave it till morning. You can do this on a regular basis for a week.

Discussing further on nutritional deficiencies that lead to hair loss, Men's Fitness gave details on the possibility of reversing the hair damage with a right diet along with a proper intake of the vitamin A.
