The Facts About Thinning Hair and Hair Growth
Find out the causes and solutions of hair loss including hair care products that actually boost hair growth
Hormones and hair lossChanges to levels of hormones can affect hair production and is a one of the most prevalent causes of hair loss. For example, after the hormonal shifts of menopause, many women find that their hair is thinner. Glimmer of hope? Even though new hair may not be produced, follicles remain alive, which leaves the door open for new hair growth.
In addition, the most common form of hair loss connected to pregnancy occurs about three months after delivery. Why, you ask? During pregnancy, an increased number of hairs go into their resting phase, which is part of the normal hair loss cycle. The increase in hormones during pregnancy prevents hair loss, but when hormones go back to normal levels after delivery, your hair may fall out in order to return to its regular cycle. Make sense? So some women may have a bunch of their hair fall out all at once, but it is not serious enough to cause permanent hair loss or bald spots. However, if you experience unusual hair loss while you are pregnant, this may be due to a vitamin or mineral deficiency.
