What Is Hormonal Hair Loss?
For many women, hair is intimately tied to confidence and self-esteem. Styling your hair before a night out or a special event is a must for most of us, and having healthy tresses is often perceived as a sign of youth and vitality. However, the female body has a complex system of hormones that fluctuate and change all the time. It may be that there are certain times of the month when hair is glossier, then suddenly hair appears dry and frizzy.
Every stage of a woman’s life presents different hormonal issues that the body has to manage. There are times when it can do this more successfully than others, other times hormone imbalances can lead to hair loss or hair shedding if they are out of balance.
The common side effects we may notice from hormonal imbalances are:
- Thinning, dry or brittle hair
- Decreased energy levels
- Increased hair shedding
- Bald spots in some areas
- Issues with sleeping well.
The menstrual cycle can influence hair health however it is normal to shed around 50-100 hairs per day. If you are losing more than that, there may be a hormonal imbalance you should consider addressing to improve hair health. Pre-menstrual tension (PMS) or the more severe condition Endometriosis (intense pain caused by lining of the womb growing in other areas such as the ovaries) can both play havoc with hormone levels.
Although there is not a direct link to hair loss from these conditions, they may contribute to an overall sense of fatigue, hair shedding and a lack of wellness. The Simone Thomas Wellness Plans can really help to support your body from within to restore your overall wellbeing while improving skin and hair health.
Both pregnancy and the menopause can also affect hair health and inhibit new hair growth. As women, there are plenty of reasons why our hormones may be imbalanced from menopause to pregnancy, to PMS and PCOS , but by getting to the bottom of what is causing our hair loss symptoms you can then focus on finding the right treatment to help.
Thyroid Hormones & Hair Loss
Women are 10 times more likely than men to have an issue with thyroid hormones. If you are facing thyroid problems, such as hypothyroidism (when the metabolism slows down), then hormones are probably being produced to affect the growth of your hair and thinning could take place. You may have an over-active thyroid (Graves’ disease) and be affected with hair loss as well as feeling tired and sluggish. If you feel you may be suffering with thyroid imbalances, it’s important to speak to your GP.
If you’re struggling with hormonal imbalance symptoms, you may have noticed issues with your digestive system. It may be a surprise to learn that gut health has a huge impact on skin and hair condition. Adopting a healthy diet, supported with nutritious supplements, can reverse these negative effects and promote great overall health, including radiant hair and skin.
The Simone Thomas Wellness 3 step hair care plans are carefully designed to reverse the effects of hormones on hair health, reduce stress or anxiety and restore your digestive system to good health.
