Atlanta Hair Replacement & Causes of Hair Loss



Stress can have a negative effect on hair growth.  As the body undergoes stress for long periods of time, stress hormones can affect the nervous system.  Some hair loss specialists believe that stress is plays a role in Alopecia Areata. When the body undergoes stress, testosterone production increases and this can constrict the blood supply to the capillaries, decreasing oxygen and nutrients to the follicle. This can in turn cause hair loss and thinning hair.


Hormonal changes after child birth can cause hair loss.  It is quite common for women to see excessive hair loss in the weeks after giving birth as their hormones begin to change.


A healthy diet is important to growing healthy hair, and a poor diet that is high in fatty foods and low in nutrition can lead to hair loss.  Deficiencies in certain vitamins, minerals or amino acids can be damaging to hair cell reproduction and growth.


A thyroid that does not function well can also contribute to hair loss.  Thyroid disorders such as hyperthyroidism or hypothyroidism can cause testosterone to be converted to DHT which in turn attacks the hair follicle and causes hair loss. 

All of these factors can contribute to thinning hair and hair loss.  Often it is a combination of several factors working together. As the hair growth rate declines the result is hair that becomes weaker and thinner thus making it more difficult to grow healthy strong hair.  Our Atlanta hair replacement experts will work together with you to choose the best hair loss solution for your own individual circumstances.   Make an appointment today for a hair and scalp analysis to learn more about what is affecting your hair loss or thinning hair as well as options for hair restoration.
