As much as people would like to believe, there is, in fact, no such thing as ultimate hair loss prevention for people who have it genetically. There are no foods you can eat or vitamins you can take while you are young in order to avoid hair loss. This is something that is in your genes. You have it, or you don't. This does not mean that once you detect some hair loss you cannot stop it in its tracks.

For people who have genetic pattern baldness, you will just have to wait until the pattern begins to be sure you have it. Then, you can go out and find treatments. There are many on the market today from synthetic medications to all-natural alternatives. Know that if you stop the treatment you are on, your hair loss will start up again. There is no one-time cure, but you can certainly maintain results you want by being consistent with your treatments.

Hair Loss Prevention for Non-Genetic Balding

There are some kinds of hair loss that are not the result of genetics. For many of these, there are indeed hair loss prevention steps you can take. If you color your hair all the time, you may be causing it serious damage that could eventually result in hair falling out and not growing back. If you insist on coloring your hair, do not color more often than every six to eight weeks. Do less if you can.

Also, make sure that you are eating right. Bad eating habits can affect your hair in ways you never thought. For good hair loss prevention, it is important that you are drinking enough water and taking in enough calcium. Make sure you are getting enough sleep at night. Stress is another factor of hair loss. If you lead a very stressful life, you should include some stress relieving activities.
