If there’s one issue that can knock a man’s confidence more than almost anything else, it’s the early onset of hair loss. Also known as male pattern baldness, it’s an affliction that plagues many young gentlemen as early as their twenties, and can leave them feeling self conscious and unattractive – but in 2022, it’s no longer a problem you have to simply accept, and with constant advancements being made in the pharmaceutical and men’s grooming fields, there are many ways to either minimise it, put a stop to it or even restore lost follicles.

If you’re one of the many men who is suffering from hair loss in your 20s or 30s – or are concerned you might become one of the 80 percent who face receding hairlines and bald patches after the age of 50, then you might be wondering what exactly you can do now to ensure you get to continue sporting a luscious head of locks for as long as possible.

Here, we take a look at three methods you can try to prevent or cure hair loss now, and you might be surprised at just how effective some of these modern methods really are.

The hair growth promoter

The follically challenged male has long been in search of a treatment that can prevent loss before it worsens, and minoxidil has quickly become recognised as the go-to product amongst those in the know

The follically challenged male has long been in search of a treatment that can prevent loss before it worsens, and minoxidil has quickly become recognised as the go-to product amongst those in the know.

Having received much praise over the past few years, minoxidil is a synthetic lotion that when used consistently, can help to promote hair growth – and best of all, it’s quick and easy to apply at home.

To use, ensure that your hair and scalp are completely dry, then gently rub the recommended amount into the area you wish to treat using the applicator provided. For best results, begin in the centre of the affected area, and remember to avoid shampooing your hair for at least 3-4 hours afterwards.

The results will take a few months to begin to show, but consistency is key – so stick with it, and you’ll likely be glad of it later down the line.

The lost follicle restorer

While the earliest attempts at hair restoration left a lot to be desired, science has come a long way since, and these days, hair transplants are considered to be an effective treatment for the restoration of lost hair follicles

While the earliest attempts at hair restoration left a lot to be desired, science has come a long way since, and these days, hair transplants are considered to be an effective treatment for the restoration of lost hair follicles. In fact, the latest techniques are so highly sought-after that even celebrities such as David Beckham and Sylvester Stallone have undergone the procedure, with some impressive results to show for it.

The number of men seeking hair transplants in Turkey has spiked dramatically over the past few years, with the destination becoming popular amongst medical tourists looking to restore their hair to its former glory thanks to high standards and lower prices when compared with the UK.

Hair follicles are transferred from a donor area to an area where hair is thinning, and can restore anywhere from 10 to 80 per cent of loss – and with the opportunity to take a sunshine holiday when jetting off for your procedure, for many, it’s a no brainer. 

The natural booster

While some treatments promote hair growth and others aim to restore what has already been lost, others seek to prevent the problem from starting in the first place

While some treatments promote hair growth and others aim to restore what has already been lost, others seek to prevent the problem from starting in the first place.

Natural supplements such as biotin and collagen are a good first port of call for those looking to try this approach, and while there is still some scepticism around just how effective they are as a primary treatment, they can offer some support as part of a broader healthy lifestyle, which should include a balanced diet packed with vitamins, minerals and nutrients from lean proteins, nuts, seeds and organic fruits and vegetables.

Biotin is available in both tablet and powder form, and should be taken daily for best results. The latter can be stirred into a hot drink or smoothie for easier consumption.
