Foods to Avoid If You Don't Want to Go Bald

Hair loss is one of men's biggest concerns as they get older. But lucky for you, simply making a few changes to your diet you can improve your chances of holding on to your hair.

Although many men don't care about hair loss, for others it's a very big concern. Alopecia can be caused by a number of things, and one of the least known causes is poor diet.

There are many foods that promote hair loss. We'll tell you which foods you should stop eating if you want to have stronger hair.

One type of food that worsens the health of your hair is -- popular and actually not very healthy -- "light" or "diet" food. These foods, although they are low-fat, are packed with artificial sweeteners, which is why you should be careful when choosing your food.

As bad as artificial sweeteners are for your health, you probably guessed that regular sugar isn't either. And contrary to popular belief, sugar can be found not only found in pastries and soft drinks, but also in other foods.

Consuming too much sugar can alter your levels of certain hormones and cause your protein levels to drop, making your hair less healthy.

Another type of processed food you should remove -- or at least eat less of -- from your diet is fast food. You should swap these foods out for healthier alternatives as much as possible.

And since we're talking about fast food, sausages are nearly as terrible because of their high fat and salt content. Salt makes your hair drier, and dryness causes your hair to lose its density and slows down its growth. So if you want to improve the health of your hair, you're going to want to cut down on the salt.

If you want to have healthy, strong hair, and prevent alopecia, look out for these foods. All it takes is a few small changes to your diet to keep your hair nice and thick
