Top Causes Of Hair Loss Genetics plays a large role in your chances for hair loss.
Some men are quick to blame their parents for that thinning crown or the balding scalp. Although genetics are a big factor in men’s hair loss, there are a variety of other causes of hair loss in men.
Exercise and Hormones
Exercising is good for our heart, and our waistline, but is high-resistance training good for our hair? Sadly, that warrior regiment may be causing a spike in testosterone, which can ultimately result in hair loss.
The same goes for Performance Enhancing Drugs (PED’s) and testosterone for muscle gain. If used when suffering from any sort of hereditary male pattern hair loss, it becomes a double threat. It’s been well documented that testosterone in the body is converted to DHT dihyrotestosterone.
Your Scalp and Autoimmune Diseases
Scalp inflammation is the body’s response to intruding microorganisms. The most common contributing factor to this is the overproduction of sebum. When your hair roots get clogged it can result in itchiness or flakiness.
Inflammation of the scalp has been scientifically shown to interrupt and impair healthy hair growth. Overgrowth of fungus or yeast at the scalp (that feed on the natural oils or sebum your scalp secretes naturally) can turn into redness and irritation.
And of course, theres alopecia areata, a condition where the body’s immune system mistakenly attacks it’s own hair follicles. When this occurs, other cells or tissues important to hair growth and maintenance become causalities.
This results in hair loss of various kinds including cicatricial alopecia and telogen effluvium (which occurs when hair’s growth cycle is disrupted). Its a complete interruption of the hair fiber production.
Smoking and Exhaustion
We all know it and have known it, cigarettes kill its victims, and possibly even its victims hair, slowly. Every inhale of any tobacco product creates a stranglehold on the tiny blood vessels in your skin, starving those skin cells—and hair follicles—of vital nutrients like oxygen etc and leaving toxins in its place. Before you know it, the effects of smoking will be evident on your skin and in your hair.
As important as it is to avoid toxins in your life its also imperative that you get enough sleep. Most people need at least 7 hours of sleep per night, which is necessary for the body and mind for repair. Science suggests that when our biologic clocks become disrupted, our hair follicle growth cycles may become affected too.
