GQ: How to (Actually) Prevent Hair Loss
Dr. Michele Green was featured in GQ today where discussed how to keep and strengthen the hair they already have. Which each case is very different, some of the key notes she had in the article include attacking it at first sight – “Getting treatment for hair loss in its early stages can help minimize overall hair loss and increase the odds of a treatment’s efficacy,” she says. “Hair loss can seem overwhelming which is why it is necessary to consult with a dermatologist who will assess your condition and explain all of your treatment options.”
As well as making a plan on various options such as PRP or Low-level laser therapy, she also discusses OTC options and targeted, specialized supplements such as Viviscal and Nutrafol in particular. “Viviscal promotes hair growth by providing nutrients your hair needs to grow such as b complex, and zinc among other nutrients which promotes thicker, stronger and longer hair. Nutrafol is an amazing vitamin formulated with marine collagen, saw palmetto, and ashwagandha,” she adds. “Marine collagen is enriched with B vitamins, which promote hair growth, saw palmetto prevents testosterone from being converted to DHT, and ashwagandha reduces inflammation.”
In addition to that, reducing stress where possible is always a good option “stress can cause the hair to stop growing and cause excessive shedding,” says Green. So while stress can be hard to avoid sometimes, there are things you can do to take care of yourself such as quitting smoking.
