HORMONES & HAIR LOSS
CAN HORMONE IMBALANCE CAUSE HAIR LOSS?
The answer is yes!
Hormonal Hair loss can potentially be caused by an imbalance of thyroid hormones or pregnancy, disease, and certain medications. All these changes can influence hair’s growth and the shedding phases.
Hormones are cyclical. When the levels of estrogen and progesterone drop, especially during menopausal women, hairs grow more slowly and become much thinner. A decrease in these hormones also triggers an increase in the production of androgens or a group of male hormones. Androgens shrink hair follicles, resulting in hair loss on the head. Shrinkage of the follicles can change the structure of your hair. Most of the time it gets fizzy and curly. Testosterone levels in some men drop by 10% each decade after age 30. A high level of testosterone in the body can create DHT on the scalp and this is the most common male pattern baldness.
