Alcohol and smoking can speed up hair loss

Alcohol and smoking are in no way good for either our physical or mental well-being, yet it is still a big part of most social events.

If one disregards all the other negative things that can be said about both smoking and the consumption of alcohol, then the problem in relation to one’s hair is the stress the substances create in the body. The body immediately begins to fight the smoke and alcohol, which puts the immune system on overtime, creating a stress response. It is not optimal in terms of maintaining the overall health of the body.

In addition, alcohol is known to reduce zinc levels in the body, which is inappropriate if one wants healthy hair and hair follicles.

Hair loss and stress

It is well known and well documented that stress can be the cause of hair loss. Stress disrupts the hormonal system in the body negatively. More specifically, stress increases the conversion of testosterone to dihydrostetosterone, which is a harmful hormone for the hair.

Fortunately, in the vast majority of cases, mental stress is not persistent, which means that the lost hair will return in the long run.

Hair loss in connection with stress is referred to in the medical world as a telogenic hair loss. This means that an abnormally large percentage of the hairs on the scalp at the same time go into the telogen phase (the resting phase), which is a natural part of the hair cycle. Approx. 3 months after the rest phase begins, you lose your hair.

Telogenic hair loss can also occur with prolonged physical stress such as gravity, major surgery or infections with fever.

Menopause and hair loss

When menopausal women experience hair loss, it is like with men, the hereditary genes that finally show up. It is also called hereditary hair loss, and often only appears when women reach menopause. However, this does not mean that it only happens during menopause. Female hair loss can also begin when one hits puberty, or in rare cases before puberty.

It is quite normal to shed hair, one loses hair all the time and hair follicles die slowly as the years go by. If you start to see an unnatural and persistent development of hair loss, you should intervene.

Self-inflicted hair loss

Yes you read that right, one can even blame oneself for its high temples, without it having anything to do with dietary habits.

Are you a diligent user of various hair cures, hair colors and hair products? Then it may be one of the places you can put in. If that’s what’s on your mind, just try to go through the contents of the products you use. You may not be able to tolerate some of these ingredients, which can also be to blame for both dandruff and dry scalp. A good rule of thumb is to switch to milder and neutral products.

Unfortunate hairstyle

Unfortunately, there are many popular hairstyles that can be the cause of excessive hair loss or that the hair becomes thinner. We all cut hair all the time, whether we like it or not, but some hairstyles promote hair loss. If you are familiar with manbuns or tight braids, read on here.

It has been shown that the use of these hairstyles for a long time, can move the hairline in an unfortunate direction. At the same time, it can also cause other scalp problems and damaged hair. So we recommend that you save the completely tight braids for special occasions.
