Hormones and Hair: How an Imbalance Could Cause Thinning Hair

Women know that dealing with hormone fluctuations that cause mood swings is far from fun. Unfortunately, as we get older, these hormone changes can also start to negatively affect other parts of the body, including hair growth.

According to Women’s Health Magazine, hormonal hair loss is caused by a medical hormonal imbalance, which can occur naturally as part of the aging process or as the result of trauma like dramatic weight loss or serious surgery. As a result of this hormonal imbalance, the body’s hair-growth-promoting hormones decrease, and the body’s hair-loss-promoting hormones increase. That means you’re left with both sides of the hair-loss spectrum working against us – a lack of hormones to stimulate production and an uptick in the hormone level that tells the body to shed hair.

If you’ve experienced this type of hair loss, you know that the symptoms are thinner hair all over the body and most noticeably on the scalp. The only way to reverse this hair loss is to treat the core problem. Talk to your doctor about testing for a hormonal imbalance and see if treating these changes with therapies like hormone supplements or dietary changes can help. If you’re dealing with hormonal hair loss because of a trauma, the first thing you need to do is make sure your body is fully healed.

These solutions can provide long-term help and even regrowth, but hair therapies at Hair Replacement by Janet can offer relief as well. We know that women value long, thick hair, so when your hormones are preventing you from having it, it can be difficult to feel your best.  We offer a number of Follea products as well as treatments like hair extensions and hair replacement solutions that can help you look and feel your best while you’re battling problems with hair loss or thinning hair.
