Major Reasons For Hair Loss In Babies | HAIR LOSS 2022


Hormonal hair loss

Hormonal hair loss is most common in men and in postmenopausal women. This type of hair loss can be due to elevated concentrations of a type of testosterone in the scalp (Dihydrotestosterone – DHT). DHT can settle on the scalp and hair follicles, and this can disrupt the normal growth phase which is important for healthy hair and a naturally healthy hair growth.

Hereditary hair loss

Hereditary hair loss can come from both mother and father, and affect both men and women. Hair loss in men is often more concentrated on the top of the head and in the temples, partly because more DHT has been seen in these areas. In women, hair loss is usually more diffuse and more evenly distributed throughout the head. Many women also experience this type of hair loss especially after pregnancy and after menopause.

Physical and mental stress and hair loss

A high stress level can also lead to hair loss. This type of hair loss is usually not permanent. When the stress becomes less, the hair follicles begin to produce hair again through a natural growth phase. It is still important to use good hair care products.

Increased hair loss due to increased sweating in the scalp?

As mentioned, increased incidence of DHT in the scalp can lead to thinner hair and hair loss. As the enzyme involved in the formation of DHT in the scalp is also produced in the sweat glands in the scalp, some studies have shown that there may be a possible connection between increased sweating in the scalp and increased hair loss. The theory is based, among other things, on the fact that exercise and sweating, as well as the use of helmets and headgear that can also lead to increased sweat production in the scalp, can have an impact on the production of DHT and thus also hair loss.

Hair loss during pregnancy and lactation

There are several changes that occur in a woman’s body during pregnancy. Physical and mental stress associated with childbirth as well as hormonal changes can both lead to hair loss after childbirth. This condition is temporary and most women begin to get their hair back again within 6 to 12 months after giving birth.

Lupus and hair loss

Lupus is a chronic autoimmune disease, which means that the body begins to “attack” itself and its own cells. This can cause many different symptoms, and a common symptom is rashes and inflammation of the scalp that can lead to hair loss.

Hair loss with chemotherapy

Cytotoxic drugs kill the fast-growing cells in the body, including the cells in the hair follicles that are important for the production of hair. After the chemotherapy regimen is over, the hair will grow back, but sometimes the hair has a different structure and color.

Hair loss due to weight loss and nutritional deficiencies

If you are experiencing a large weight loss, either due to an ongoing diet or if you have nutritional deficiencies for other reasons, then it is important to be aware that weight loss can lead to hair loss. If the body has a lack of energy, it will prioritize the most important organs first – hair and nails are last in line. It is therefore important that weight reduction and dieting is done in moderation and over time, and that this is combined with the supply of the right vitamins and other supplements. If not, this can cause the body to become unbalanced, resulting in hair loss and thinning hair.

Note that if you have a hormonal hair loss, and you have a normal healthy diet, then extra supplements will probably have less effect.
