We found five methods to prevent hair loss that don’t involve surgery or keeping your medicine cabinets stocked with Rogaine.

Once you realize you’re balding, you have two options — wear a hat at all times, or launch a counter assault in hopes of keeping any more hair from jumping ship. Preventative methods might include spending a small fortune on hair-restoration surgery, keeping your medicine cabinets stocked with Rogaine, or using these cheaper, lower-impact techniques that we picked up from a panel of experts. They won’t grow back your hair, but they’ll keep what you have left there longer.

So unless you have too much money or don’t mind slathering chemicals on your head for the rest of your life, we’re pretty sure we know which of those three options you’ll find most appealing.

 

RELAX
Stress can induce hair loss. But according to Dr. Daniel Hall-Flavin of the Mayo Clinic, stress-related hair loss can be reversible. You just have to find ways to relax, mon. Take a walk, go for a run, hit the gym, practice yoga — do something that isn’t work-related or frustrating.
