Why can weight loss cause hair fall? 

Weight loss can cause a surge in hormones that can trigger the process of hair loss called telogen effluvium. That consists of hair follicles entering the resting phase and stopping producing new strands.

That can lead to a sudden and drastic loss of hair.

When the body doesn’t have essential nutrients, it can go into a state of shock and cause the hair follicles to enter the resting phase. That causes the hair to stop growing and eventually fall out.

Poor nutrition can lead to a lack of essential nutrients, such as iron and zinc, which make proper hair growth. If the body lacks these nutrients, it can’t produce the hormones that stimulate hair growth.

  • ∙ Weight loss can cause hair fall. That’s when you lose weight, and your body undergoes several changes.
  • ∙ As the body adjusts to the new weight and lifestyle, it affects the hormones that regulate hair growth. When these hormones become imbalanced, it can lead to excessive shedding or thinning of hair.
  • ∙ Additionally, weight loss may cause nutritional deficiencies and lead to hair loss.
  • ∙ Furthermore, a diet low in protein can lead to poor hair growth and make existing hair more prone to breakage.
  • ∙ You must ensure that your weight loss program includes an adequate balance of healthy eating, regular exercise, and proper rest.
  • ∙ Lastly, if you have excessive hair shedding or thinning, it is best to consult with a doctor to determine the cause and get proper treatment.

How hormonal imbalances make women lose hair 

1. Hormonal imbalances can cause a variety of health problems, including hair loss.

2. The most common type of hair loss associated with hormonal imbalance is androgenetic alopecia or female pattern baldness.

3. The cause of androgenetic alopecia is an excess of the hormone testosterone. That can lead to thinning hair and eventually complete baldness.

4. Hormonal imbalances can also cause alopecia areata, a condition that causes patches of hair to fall out.

5. Telogen effluvium is another type of hair loss caused by hormonal imbalance. This condition occurs when the hair follicles enter into a resting phase and the hairs fall out.

6. Hormonal imbalances can also cause scalp conditions such as seborrheic dermatitis, which can lead to hair loss.

7. Finally, hormonal imbalances can lead to thyroid problems, which can also cause hair loss.

8. There are a variety of treatments available for hair loss caused by hormonal imbalances, including medication, surgery, and lifestyle changes.

Post-pregnancy hair loss 

Post-pregnancy hair loss is a condition where hair loss occurs after a woman has given birth. The causes can be hormone imbalances, the stress of childbirth, and lifestyle changes.

Post-pregnancy hair loss can last from a few months to a few years after childbirth. The hormonal changes during pregnancy can cause the hair follicles to enter into a dormant state.

Although, a treatment can stimulate the hair follicles to recover their normal growth cycle and stop hair loss.

Breastfeeding and hair loss 

Hormonal imbalances can cause hair loss, and breastfeeding can contribute to temporary imbalances. Medical treatment can make the hair follicles return to their growth phases and stop hair loss.
