Exercise And Hair Loss - Can Exercise Prevent Hair Loss?

Switch Exercises Now And Prevent Hair Loss

Are exercise and hair loss connected, and can exercise prevent hair loss?

Keeping fit is often promoted as a good way to keep yourself healthy. But does it prevent hair loss, or make it fall out even more?

Well it depends what type of exercise you’re doing.

First of all, doing the right type of exercise is good, because nutrients are delivered to your hair follicles via your blood. And exercise gets your heart pumping, so the increased circulation will help feed your hair.

But what if you’re at the gym regularly, yet your still experiencing hair loss?

If your workouts tend to be more geared towards bulking up muscle, as opposed to cardiovascular exercise such as running. Then you’ll be raising your testosterone levels.

What then happens is it reacts with the natural enzyme 5 alpha reductase, and this produces the hormone dihydrotestosterone or DHT.

It’s this very hormone DHT that is scientifically proven to minimise your hair follicles to the point where they become invisible to the naked eye.

You will still have fine hairs on your head, but to anyone looking at you it will appear as baldness or thinning bald patches.

So if you’re already genetically predisposed to have male or female pattern baldness, this type of exercise will only serve to accelerate your hair loss.

On the other hand cardiovascular exercise can actually reduce your DHT levels. So this type of exercise can help you to prevent hair loss. Whereas stressful weight lifting can make your hair loss worse.

Luckily for you there are medications that are approved by the FDA for tackling pattern baldness. Even if you’re genetically predisposed for hair loss.

Propecia (Finasteride) stops 5 alpha reductase from creating DHT. This is a product used by millions of men around the world. It’s not suitable for women though. And is often used along with transplant surgery to prevent further loss after treatment.

Minoxidil helps to improve the blood circulation around the scalp area, giving more life to your hair follicles.

You also have natural anti hair loss supplements Har Vokse which will boost your intake of essential nutrients.

If you have a sensitive scalp, and find that Minoxidil causes irritation or discomfort. You may want to try the soothing Har Vokse spray. It also cleanses your scalp from any residues like sweat or hair gels that can build up and prevent your hair from growing freely.
