With age comes hair loss...especially for men.
Men tend to lose their hair quicker than women, and although balding is a natural occurrence, it is still often frustrating to deal with it.
You should not feel one bit of shame when dealing with hair loss; however, there are some changes that you could make to help slow down or cover up balding.
Here, we’ll give you some tips and tricks to treat hair loss and how you can improve the look of your hair while boosting your confidence at the same time.
1. Cover Thinning Hair
If you want to go the route of covering your thinning hair, there are a few recommendations.
Wigs or Toupees
Investing in a wig or hairpiece can conceal large areas of hair loss. You’ll want to get a wig or hairpiece made with natural hair that matches your hair color.
Experiment with your hairstyle
Try out different looks that help cover thinning areas of your hair.
Common styles would be a slick-back or a comb-over to create a more voluminous appearance.
Try using a spray or colorant that matches your hair and scalp to help fill in thinning areas, creating a fuller look.
Routine hair washing plays a part in preventing or slowing down hair loss by maintaining your hair’s cleanliness. This decreases your chances of infection and dandruff that may lead to hair breakage or loss.
Invest in an anti-thinning shampoo that will nourish your hair follicles and bring nutrients to your scalp to promote hair growth.
At iRestore , our Anti-Hair Loss Shampoo does just that!
It is an advanced volumizing therapy treatment specifically for thinning hair and contains essential nutrients to strengthen hair roots and promote healthier-looking hair.
Our shampoo also promotes circulation for healthy hair follicles, leaving your hair feeling revitalized. Ingredients include castor oil, amino acids, and antioxidants that help eliminate shedding and thinning, resulting in fuller, shinier hair.
Pair this with our lightweight Anti-Hair Thinning Conditioner , which is built to strengthen follicles and restore hair health using biotin, argan oil, ginseng, and other essential ingredients.
3. Improve Your Diet
Sometimes, your daily habits are left to blame for balding. This, too, means that your hair could be affected by factors that you can control.
Yup, we mean your diet and nutrition!
One thing you’ll want to factor into your diet is more protein. Healthy protein sources like eggs, meat, poultry, and fish will play a positive role in your hair’s health.
A diet high in vitamins and essential fatty acids will also assist with your hair health.
We recommend our Hair Gummy Vitamins and our 3-In- 1 Hair Growth Formula .
Our gummies are made of all-natural ingredients and are designed to nourish your hair with a proprietary blend of essential nutrients. They are preservative, gluten-free, and vegan and come bursting with the vitamins and fatty acids your hair needs to restore its former health.
Our hair growth formula is a blend of scientifically researched ingredients that improve hair density and fight hair loss. The formula contains biotin, saw palmetto, and a DHT blocker to help overall hair health.
For those of you that don’t know, DHT is the hormone responsible for genetic hair loss, and our formula overcomes the effects of DHT, which leads to a reversal of the hair thinning process.
The vitamins are designed to help improve the fullness of hair and promote the growth of healthier hair.
4 . Red Light Therapy
Red light therapy (RLT) is a treatment that helps your skin and muscle tissue heal by subjecting you to low levels of red light. The light creates heat below the skin’s surface, heightening your cells’ activity, resulting in faster hair growth.
For more information on the RLT process, check out our blog here.
At iRestore, we offer two hair growth RLT devices, our Essential and our Professional .
Both are FDA-cleared and are designed with medical lasers and LEDs proven to reverse hair loss.

5. Shave It!
Suppose you’ve decided to go big and shave your head, good for you! Embrace it!
Many men look great with a completely bald head. Vin Diesel, Bruce Willis, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, LL Cool J...we could go on for a while here.
It’s a pretty giant leap to make, but it does come with the responsibility of maintaining your new look.
For starters, you’ll want to make sure you’re taking care of your scalp so that it stays moisturized. Recommended products are coconut oil, sunscreen, and a quality razor blade.
It would be best also to exfoliate your scalp, which you can do by applying a face or body scrub on your scalp a few times a week. This will keep your scalp cleaner and avoid the buildup of dead skin and natural oils.
And, the best look for a bald head is a smooth head. This means you’ll need to shave your hair regularly. You’ll almost defeat the purpose of a shaved head if you only decide to shave it once every week or two.
Lastly, every once in a while, treat yourself to a professional shave. We know it’s easier and cheaper to shave it on your own but treat yourself!
Most men shave with a razor that has multiple blades. But the barber will use a cut-throat razor on your scalp, resulting in an even and clean shave. This will allow your hair to grow back lighter, and it also helps get rid of ingrown hairs.
