Contraception & Its Effect On Your Hair

The female body as a result of pregnancy suffers complexities that make women more prone to hair loss. Contraceptives and birth control alter the natural release of hormones which have detrimental effects on hair growth.

There are two main classes of female contraception; pills and IUD’S, one of which is Mirena. Mirena is one of the world’s most popular and convenient contraceptives.

Despite being highly effective as a contraceptive, it has a significant impact on hair health. It is estimated that around 1 in 5 women, experience hair thinning due to Mirena, with some women noticing their hair falling out in clumps. A highly effective method at overcoming Mirena complications is the Mirena detox.

So how do you know if you are one of the many victims? The key side effects of Mirena are breast tenderness, heavy bleeding, fluctuating weight and of course hair loss.

What is the Mirena detox?

The Mirena Detox is a 40 day long program that aims to clear the excruciating effects of Mirena and target issues that doctors may not even recognise. By initially cleansing the colon, liver and uterus; the detox helps by overcoming the specific side effects and problems caused by IUDs, such as the cleansing and detoxification of copper toxins and re-strengthening the immune system.

Exercise Your Way to Healthier Hair

The six letter word that plays a major role in hair loss is STRESS. Stress has become part and parcel of our busy lifestyles. Needless to say, this emotional tension puts our bodies under a lot strain and the build-up of anxiety can have a detrimental effect on our health.

What is the ultimate remedy for stress? EXERCISE. We all know that regular exercise equals a healthy body, but did you know that your level of exercise and rate of hair loss are directly linked?

Stress causes the body to release hormones, such as cortisone, that are known to damage hair follicles. At times you may feel that no matter what you’re doing, your hair does not look healthy, that is all because of stress. Exercise combats stress by releasing good hormones that allows the body to work efficiently. It not only makes you happier, it leads to healthier hair.

Swimming, running, cycling, and any other physical activity evens out hormone levels in our body and gets rid of toxins. Exercise also unclogs our scalp pores. Yes! Just like our skin, the scalp has pores too, which over time can become clogged and thus damage the hair follicles.

Exercising can seem like a daunting task, especially when your schedule is already jam packed, but it does not have to be as time consuming as you think. It can be as simple as joining the children in a game of football! Going for brisk walks or substituting the car for a cycle can all be simple ways of incorporating physical activities into your routine without being too time consuming.

The best thing about exercise is that it’s 100% natural and is beneficial for your entire body. Be fitter, happier and it will lead to beautiful, well nourished hair.

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.

Horrible Hormones – the effect of hormones on our hair

The damaging effects of stress on your hair

As many of you may have experienced, the more stressed you are, the more hair you lose. The three types of hair loss that are caused by high stress levels are…

Telogen effluvium

Significant stress levels push a large number of hair follicles into a resting phase which then fall out suddenly when combing or washing your hair.

Trichotillomania

The urge to pull out hair from your scalp is called Trichotillomania. Hair pulling can be a way of dealing with negative or uncomfortable feelings, such as stress, tension or frustration.

Alopecia areata

A variety of factors are cause alopecia areata, including severe stress. With alopecia areata, the body’s immune system attacks hair follicles which causes hair to fall out.

It is extremely important to point out that hair loss as a result of high levels of stress is not permanent and can be reversed. By controlling the levels of stress in one’s life, hormones remain balanced which once again allows natural hair growth to resume which reduces the rate at which hair falls out.
