Hair Replacement Products Help Lessen the Effects of Hair Loss
Historically, hair loss has been an issue that most people are not happy dealing with. For many reasons, both personal and those caused by societal pressure, people will go to great lengths to make sure that they have a full head of hair for as long as possible. However, in our opinion, it is also important that people understand what the main causes of hair loss are in the first place so that, hopefully, they are able to take proactive steps to lessen the effects of these causes. Below, we have listed out a few more factors that can cause a person to lose their hair.
- Hypothyroidism: Hypothyroidism is a medical term for having an underactive thyroid gland. This gland is located in the neck and produces hormones that are critical to maintaining a proper metabolism as well as hormones that affect the growth and development of the human body. If something disrupts this hormone production, hair loss can occur. While hypothyroidism is not an easy condition to diagnose at home, if you make sure to have annual physicals, you can often catch this condition before it causes any major issues for your body. Once the condition is recognized and treated, hair levels should return to normal.
- Medication: A variety of medications such as antidepressants, blood thinners, arthritis medication, and NSAIDS have been linked to hair loss. These medications, while necessary in many cases, can cause hair loss because they disrupt your body’s natural ability to properly regulate your hair growth cycle. If you visit your doctor and determine that your current medications could be causing your hair loss, talk to him or her about lowering the dose or, if that is not effective, switching medications altogether.
- Vitamin Deficiencies: In our previous post, we explained how low levels of protein in a person’s diet may contribute to hair loss, however, protein is not the only thing that the body needs in order to produce hair. Vitamin A and B are both pivotal to the growth of hair and if the body does not have enough of these vitamins, it will allocate them to areas of the body that it deems more important than the hair on your head. While a balanced diet is the best way to fix this issue, supplementing your diet with a multivitamin could go a long way in making sure that the hair on your head stays in place.
