Hair Loss

There is no single cause of thinning hair. There are many:

  • MEDICATION

    The hair follicle is incredibly sensitive to changes in the body. Any hormone therapy (including birth control) can contribute to hair thinning, as can steroids, specific chemotherapies, and medication for blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease and acne.
  • STRESS AND TRAUMA

    Stress can produce increased levels of testosterone, which converts to DHTand interrupts the hair's growth cycle. Stress also constricts blood supply through the capillaries, restricting oxygen and nutrient uptake and vitamins to the hair follicle.
  • HEALTH ISSUES

    Several underlying health issues can cause hair thinning, including a malfunctioning of the hormone-producing thyroid gland and the natural hormonal changes women experience after pregnancy and during the menopause.
  • GENETICS

    A common family predisposition involves natural, age-related hormonal changes that can trigger hair loss. This is caused by the conversion oftestosterone into the toxin Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) and can be inherited from either your mother or your father.
  • NUTRITION AND DIET

    What you eat can play a significant role in hair thinning. A high consumption of animal fats, rapid weight loss and liquid protein diets can result in a lack of amino acids, biotin, iron, protein and zinc - all of which are essential for healthy-looking hair.
  • ENVIRONMENTAL FACTORS

    Air and water pollutants, chlorine, metals and minerals may be left on the scalp and hair as we wash with water every day, contributing to thinning. Pollutants such as pseudo-estrogens and toxins from within our bodies are also a factor.
