How to Keep your Hair in Shape

For many, realising that their hair has started to thin or recede causes panic and anxiety. It’s only natural. No one wants to have a bald patch in their early thirties and growing a dreaded comb-over to hide it can only make things look worse. Yet with so many treatments and pills on offer to ‘cure’ baldness, is that really something that you want to put anywhere near your body?

What is Baldness? 

Androgenetic Alopecia, or male pattern baldness, is in the genes. Some men experience its effects from their early twenties and over 50% of men are affected in some way by the time they reach fifty. This thinning of the hair can start above the temples or on the crown of the head and may result in partial baldness or even total baldness in some cases.

How Can Baldness in Men be Treated? 

While male pattern baldness is related to your genes, there are things that you can do to slow down its progression, and much of it is common sense. 


If you’re stressed, this is much more likely to accelerate the problem. Getting to the stage where you are ‘tearing your hair out’ can cause a lot of health problems, so hair loss may be a sign you need to take a step back and unwind. 

Alcohol and Smoking 

We know that both of these things are bad for our health, so it’s no wonder that they can also slow down hair growth. Cutting back on alcohol can make a big difference to how fast you lose your hair.  


Getting the right vitamins and minerals in your diet can help to reduce the acceleration of male pattern baldness. Having a balanced diet means that you are getting all of the right nutrients for your body. One mineral that you should think about in particular is zinc. A lack of zinc in the diet can cause hair to thin, but luckily, it’s easy to add into your diet by eating red meat, or if you’re vegetarian, lentils and dark leafy greens such as spinach.

Treating Hair Loss with Drugs 

While we can change our lifestyle to help prevent the speed of hair loss, it won’t stop it completely. One of the most popular ways to treat male pattern baldness is through the use of drugs. Why? Because it’s easy. Just take a pill every day or use a topical treatment on your scalp, and all of your worries are over, right? Well, it’s not so simple. There is no ‘magic pill’ that will cure hair loss. The most common drugs used to treat hair loss in men are Minoxidil and Finasteride. While these products do work for some, not everyone experiences any hair growth, and the side effects can be quite extreme. From breast tenderness, decreased sperm production, impotence, dizziness, and drowsiness, these are not the type of chemicals you want to be putting into your body. This is particularly true if you have any other underlying medical conditions. So, what’s the alternative? How can hair loss in men be treated, without the use of drugs?

A Hair Loss Treatment that Works 

If you want a way to treat your hair loss that doesn’t revolve around taking pills, then perhaps it’s time that you considered laser therapy. Laser therapy for hair loss is a 100% non-invasive treatment that has zero of the nasty side effects that drugs can cause.  

What is Laser Therapy? 

HairMax is the Pioneer in laser hair growth technology. The treatment is known as Low-Level Laser Therapy or LLLT. HairMax uses medical grade laser diodes in all of their laser hair growth devices. They also incorporate patented hair parting teeth on their LaserBand and LaserComb devices, which part your hair and ensures that this light energy reaches your scalp so it can be as effective as possible. HairMax also has a range of Laser Cap devices providing the ideal hair growth treatment for every hair loss concern. HairMax laser treatments don’t produce any heat and is non-invasive - so there’s no pain at all - just healthy stimulation of the hair follicles.

How Does it Work? 

HairMax is proven in clinical studies and even has peer reviewed results proving that it can stimulate hair growth in men with pattern baldness. It works by a process known as photobiostimulation. Just like photosynthesis in plants, it activates the cells of the hair follicles, restoring the hair’s natural growth cycle and encouraging your hair to grow thicker and denser. It also produces stronger hair, which is less prone to damage.

Taking care of your hair before, during and after laser treatments will help garner and keep your results. That’s where HairMax for Density Bio-Active Hair Therapy comes in. This 4-piece hair therapy collection nurtures your hair in the best possible way.
