Background/Objectives: The purpose of this study was to provide basic data for preventing and improving hair loss in men in their 20s by analyzing how combined exercise and scalp care program affect ones hair condition(scalp sebum, water retention, transepidemal water loss(TEWL), scalp temperature, hair density, and hair thickness) for 12 weeks.
Methods/Statistical analysis: The group participating in the combined exercise program conducted a combined exercise program once for 80 minutes with 3 days of exercise frequency per week for 12 weeks. The scalp management program was conducted for 20 minutes once a week for 12 weeks. After pre-diagnosis, scalp condition was measured and followed by scaling, hair damage prevention mineral pack, manual technique, shampoo for cleaning, and nutrition supply for hair root strengthening. In addition, a 2-way ANOVA was conducted to verify the effect on each group. The significance level was verified at .05.
Findings: The combined exercise and scalp care program for 12 weeks did not show any interaction effect on the scalp oil content, water retention, transepidemal water loss(TEWL), and scalp surface temperature in the hair condition of men with hair loss in their 20s, but had an interaction effect on the density and thickness of hair appear.
Improvements/Applications: The combined exercise and scalp care program performed in this study showed positive effects on hair density and thickness, which confirmed the possibility of early prevention and improvement of initial hair loss.
