Hair loss is an expected phase of the hair growth cycle and this includes your facial hair. It's normal to see your whiskers fall out when you wash or comb your beard. There are some situations or conditions that cause you to temporarily or permanently lose an abnormal amount of whiskers and if you do have an excessive loss of facial hair, your should seek the advice of your doctor.
Here we have five tips to help you look after your beard and prevent hair loss. These tips can also be used for hair anywhere on your body:
Diet – One of the biggest influence on hair loss is your diet. Making sure you eat the right foods, trying to avoid sugary junk foods and by eating more vegetables your hair will become healthier and thicker. The more vitamins and minerals you take in, the bigger the impact on the health of your hair.
Exercise – When you exercise, your body produces testosterone and your circulation improves. This means that the body can get the vital vitamins and minerals to where it needs them faster. Exercise contributes to the health of your hair on your head and face.
Keep hydrated - Water is the root source of energy for each and every cell of our body. It includes those cells too, that are responsible for hair growth and its health. Not only our skin and health, but water promotes hair growth too and tends to fight with other hair and scalp challenges. Even mild dehydration can sap energy from the hair roots and can result in hair loss.
Care for it - You need to make sure you wash your beard like the hair on your head - regularly, and with shampoo. You might even want to try special beard oil, which will help keep it smooth and healthy. If you help maintain your beard hair, it can have an increasing effect on shape, thickness and volume.
Stress - Stress is never a good thing, and it can be particularly bad for beards. Just like the hair on your head, excessive stress can cause hair loss from your beard.
