Both men and women across the U.S., including the Orlando area, can suffer from hair thinning or hair loss. While this issue can affect both sexes, the factors leading to this issue are often different. So, what is the main cause of hair loss, and how can it be resolved?
Hair loss in women
There are many factors that contribute to hair loss in women. Menopause and hormonal changes are a major cause, and a disruption in the hair growth cycle could be due to a hormonal imbalance, such as an increase of male hormones.
Many women after pregnancy also face the issue of hair thinning or loss. This can be caused by the altering hormones a woman’s body experiences after pregnancy. As hormone levels begin to normalize, hair shedding may occur. Birth control can be another factor. Since birth control pills contain progestin and estrogen (hormone changes), healthy hair growth can occasionally be affected.
Hair loss in men
Different factors contribute to hair loss in males. Age is a major contributor in hair loss for men, since hair follicle abundance decreases as we age, and hair follicles become thinner. Stress is another factor. When we are stressed, our adrenal glands produce adrenaline, which can cause an increase in testosterone. This increase can cause an imbalance in hormones, affecting hair growth.
Poor diet and smoking are also lifestyle choices that can affect hair growth. It is important to consume a diet consisting of protein, vitamins and minerals for healthy hair growth. Smoking can affect circulation, and since hair follicles require a stead blood flow for growth, hair thinning or loss can occur.
