Atlanta Hair Restoration and Causes of Hair Loss

CAUSES OF HAIR LOSS
Many factors can contribute to hair loss.   Sometimes the reason for hair loss can be genetic, factors such as hormonal changes and aging can also influence thinning hair.   Here are a few of the major causes of hair loss in women and men.

 

AGING

As we age, hair cells age as well.  The density of our hair changes as well as the diameter.  In addition to thinning hair, the reduction in density and diameter of the hair causes the hair to lose volume and thickness.  By the time many women reach middle age, their hair has thinned by as much as 50%.  

MEDICATIONS

Some prescription drugs and medications can have side effects.  The hair follicle is extremely sensitive to hormonal changes that can be triggered by medications.  Hair loss can be affected by medications such as birth control pills and HRT.

ENVIRONMENTAL TOXINS

Many environmental toxins can be harmful hormone disruptors, and can trigger hair loss.  Exposure to the sun without adequate protection can produce free radicals that cause permanent damage to building blocks of the hair and skin cells; this prematurely ages our skin and hair.

GENETIC HISTORY

A genetic predisposition to hair loss is one of the most common reasons for thinning hair and baldness.  A condition known as  Androgenetic Alopecia can cause an imbalance in hormones which can in turn, create  high levels of  Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) in the scalp skin.  DHT affects the hair follicles’ ability to grow in a healthy manner. Most often it is the front hairline and the crown of the head that are affected with thinning hair and hair loss.
