Pressure Stress Pressure Stress… Bottle it up before it destroys your hair

What do you do for a living? Do you work in an office? a call centre? or are you one of the lucky few who are on your summer holidays from school and at this very moment you are twiddling your thumbs as you stare into the abyss.

Whatever you’re doing, you are under stress. It may not feel like it, but we are always in a constant state of stress.

Stress keeps the world revolving. To live, you have to work. All this work and activity that keeps you busy, forces you to stay focused. This not only tires your mind, but it destroys your body day by day. Every component of your body has its own cycle. But a tired body ruins these cycles. It can cause hypertension, diabetes, chronic headaches and also, hair loss.

Your hair cycle consists of three phases: the growth phase, rest phase and shedding phase. When you are under severe stress, the shedding phase starts earlier which results in dramatic hair loss.

Now this may sound like doom and gloom, but there is a silver lining! This process is completely reversible. Once your stress levels have subsided, your hair starts repairing itself and your hair cycle will return back to its usual state.

Horrible Hormones – the effect of hormones on our hair

Horrible hormones, we cant live with them and yet we cant live without them. Many people do not relate hormones to hair, however, the balance of our 4 main hormones play a massive role on the healthiness of our hair.

Estrogen.

Estrogen is the most vital hormone in a woman. It energises you, improves your mood and plays a major role in maintaining youthfulness. Yet too much estrogen leads to hair thinning. Estrogen levels can rise as a consequence of many factors for example, sudden weight gain or pregnancy. Therefore it is important to have blood tests whenever you experience a rapid loss of hair.

Insulin

Insulin is best known for its ability to maintain blood sugar levels, however, it also affects hair growth. A study into cardiovascular risk found that people with insulin resistance are more likely to suffer androgenic alopecia.

Testosterone

Excess testosterone levels in women can have a detrimental effect on hair retention on the scalp. The balance between Testosterone and Estrogen is often the root cause for many hair loss cases in women.

Thyroids

Fluctuating thyroid levels often cause thinning of the scalp as a consequence of a hormonal imbalance. Thus the health of your liver is majorly important to the health of your hair.

Over the next few posts, we will give more information on how to strike that perfect hormonal balance which will not only strengthen your hair, but put a smile on your face and make you feel fantastic.
