As we welcome the arrival of 2023, there’s no better time to improve the way you look after your hair. Here, we introduce you to five super simple tips that will help you nourish your hair and achieve your hair growth goals throughout the year. We also introduce you to some effective hair loss treatments should you be experiencing any signs of male pattern hair loss. 


Increase your protein intake 


Eating a wholesome and nutritious diet is super important for the health of your hair. Specifically, your hair is made up primarily of protein, so you need to make sure you get at least the recommended 45g per day from your diet. Excellent sources of protein include lean meat, eggs, fish, poultry, beans, and low-fat dairy products. If you follow a diet that is low in protein, your hair is more likely to be weak, brittle, and it may even contribute to hair loss. 


Choose the right hair products 


Using the wrong shampoo, conditioner, or styling product can cause significant damage to your hair. First and foremost, consider products that match your hair type, be it oily, normal, or dry. Next, it’s best to use products that contain natural ingredients wherever possible, avoiding the likes of sodium sulfate and other potentially harmful ingredients. If you notice that your hair is thinning, you could benefit from using our DHT-blocking shampoo that consists of saw palmetto, again oil, iron, and vitamin B3. It can reduce the levels of DHT in your scalp and may help to reduce the impact of hair loss. 


Reduce the water temperature when washing 


As soothing as a steaming hot shower might be on a freezing cold morning, taking a piping hot shower on a daily basis can irritate your scalp. This can cause your hair follicles to weaken and can lead to other issues, such as skin irritation. When you wash your hair, reduce the temperature of the shower to ensure it’s warm, not too hot. This will prevent the water from burning your scalp and helps to keep your hair healthy. 


Condition regularly 


While we all know the importance of washing our hair with shampoo, we often condition less regularly. But in reality, using a hair conditioner is super important for the health of your hair. The conditioner nourishes your hair and scalp, replaces lost oils, and protects and strengthens your hair’s cuticle. We recommend conditioning your hair every time you wash it with shampoo to ensure it stays healthy and nourished throughout the year. 


Consider a treatment for hair loss 


If you’re one of the millions of men experiencing male pattern hair loss, the start of 2023 is the perfect time to consider a hair loss treatment. At Sons, we have a broad range of treatments available for men at different stages of the Norwood Scale. For instance, our Full Works treatment is our most popular option, and it consists of Finasteride, Minoxidil, DHT-blocking shampoo, and Biotin. It’s ideal for men with mild to moderate hair loss, which is a 3-4 on the Norwood Scale. If you’re unsure about which treatment to opt for, schedule a free online consultation with Sons today.


So, if you’re hoping to maintain a healthy and full head of hair throughout 2023, now is the time to resolve to improve your daily maintenance routine by following the simple steps above.
