How to Prevent Hair Loss for Teenagers With 3 Simple Measures
If after a consultation with a medical practitioner you do not find any medical issues. Then, it is an indication that you are negligent with your hair care regime.
In some cases, it is fine to blame your genes for poor hair. But you can also delay your genetic predisposition so as to enjoy hair on your scalp for a longer period.

This is one of my favorite ways to save hair from vanishing from the scalp. Application of hair oils fortifies the hair roots. That is similar to providing nourishment through the food.
For feeding the hair follicles, oils play a crucial role. Oils are rich in nutrients and they absorb well through the skin. Hence, oil massages score high on dealing with causes of hair fall from the roots.
Few of my favorite arsenal of oils for teenage baldness prevention include:
- Rosemary Essential Oil
- Lavender Essential Oil
- Tea Tree Essential Oil
- Cedarwood Essential Oil
- Carrot Seed Essential Oil
I try various ratios of these carrier and essential oils to discover my own winning formula.
As a thumb rule, I mix a minimum of 2 carrier oils together. For every 100 ml of carrier oils combination, I add 10 drops of essential oil(s). The choice of essential oil depends on the hair issue I am tackling.
All these oils are wonderful for preventing hair from falling. They also help in hair follicle renewal.
Furthermore, Pumpkin and Grapeseed oils block DHT. Thus, these oils help tackle teenage male pattern baldness well. Adding essential oils to these base oils heightens their efficacy. Rosemary and carrot seed fight baldness. Thus, are effective for the anti-baldness purpose.

It comes as a surprise, but water plays a major role in causing hair fall. Contaminated water with dissolved toxins and bacteria harms the hair and scalp.
Aluminium, lead, chlorine, and fluoride are the usual contaminants. They block the scalp cells, thereby causing harm to the hair strands.
Also, the hair shafts get layers of buildup with the dissolved impurities in water. Over time these issues lead to infection and cuticle damage. These further lead to hair fall, and thus baldness.
The solution lies in installing a heavy duty water filter to your shower source. It will prevent the impurities from passing through your shower. A good quality water filter is a must if your water supply is through bore well.
You will see a positive shift in the condition of your hair within months of making a switch to cleaner water.

Most of us do not realize that hair issues begin at the early stages of life. Though those symptoms may be small then, but they become prominent by the time we reach middle ages.
The solution to prevent hair loss and to keep the hair intact for a long time requires a strategic plan. The plan involves practicing teenage baldness prevention measures early on in life.
The principle is simple to understand. The longer you tend to your hair, the better it stays. That is why it is important to stick to teenage hair loss solutions to preserve mane for a longer time.
I know no one who does not have any hair issues. That includes me as well. No wonder my quest for ideal hair maintenance led to my maiden book. I wrote the book after I lost faith in all the commercial hair care solutions. I must have tried every promising product from the supermarket’s shelves. But nothing worked after the beginner’s luck time period got over.
That led me to discover remedies to hair issues through nature. Since then I have not used a single commercial hair care product. I use ingredients from my pantry to wash and condition my hair. Today I am proud to claim that my hair care involves DIY handmade solutions. And they have never been better.
