Men dependably are more prone to lose their hair than ladies, essentially on account of male example sparseness, however diminishing hair and balding are likewise basic in ladies, and no less crippling. Trust me I have had this happen, and the reasons can run from a basic vitamin lack, to the more unpredictable and fundamental wellbeing condition.
Well if this is transpiring, DON’T PANIC, there are approaches to treat both male and female pattern baldness, and everything relies on upon the reason.
Here are some basic (and not really normal), reasons why you may be facing less hair on your head and more in your hair brush.
Causes of hair loss
Pregnancy-related hair loss is seen more commonly after your baby has been born, rather than actually during pregnancy. Giving birth is pretty traumatic and stressful, causing the hormones to fluctuate wildly, which can cause hair to fall out. If you do experience hair loss, don’t panic, your hair will grow back in a couple of months.
Any kind of physical trauma such as surgery, a car accident, or a severe illness, even the flu can cause temporary hair loss. This happens because hair has a programmed life cycle:
- Growth phase
- Rest phase
- Shedding phase
When you have a really stressful event, it can “shock” the hair cycle, pushing the hair more quickly into the shedding phase. Hair loss often becomes noticeable three-to-six months after the trauma. The good news is that hair will start growing back as your body recovers from the trauma.
Emotional anxiety is one of the most common cases to cause male pattern baldness. While it’s not known whether lessening anxiety can help your hair, it can’t hurt either.
Stress-Busting Foods & Tactics
A healthy diet can help counter the impact of stress by boosting the immune system and lowering blood pressure. Foods can help tame stress in several ways. Certain foods, like a bowl of warm oatmeal, boost levels of serotonin, a calming brain chemical.
- Complex Carbs
- Spinach (and other green, leafy vegetables)
- Non-GMO Soy
- Fatty Fish (salmon & tuna)
- Black Tea
- Nuts & Seeds (almonds, walnuts, pistachios)
- Foods Rich In Vitamin C
Even an overdose of vitamin A can cause a hair loss. If you are prone to hair loss try to avoid foods that are rich in vitamin A.
Male Pattern Baldness/Heredity
About 2 out of 3 men experience hair loss by age 60, and most of the time it’s due to male pattern baldness and this type of hair loss can be caused by combination of genes and sex hormones.
Just like pregnancy hormone can cause hair loss, so can switching or going off birth-control pills
Polycystic Ovary Syndrome
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is another imbalance in male and female sex hormones.
