DOES EXERCISE AFFECT YOUR HAIR LOSS


04, May 2019

Hair loss is one of the most common conditions that almost everyone faces once in a lifetime. Some men face thinning of hair, slight hair loss while some experience male pattern baldness. The main reasons for hair loss could be genetics or over styling. However, many claim that exercise can also affect hair loss in a big way. Excessive exercise harms the hair follicles, which are useful for hair growth. In this article we will help you understand how exercise affects hair growth and your overall health.

Exercise and overall health
Most health care professionals advise that exercise is important for your overall health. People who are obese exercise daily in order to get fit. They also skip meals often and this affects the body and internal health. Due to an improper diet or nutrition, many experience health conditions that cause a hormonal imbalance and affect the blood flow. Research has revealed that the right amount of exercise and a balanced diet are good for your overall health. A diet that is deficient in certain nutrients leads to an improper blood supply to your scalp, which further leads to hair fall and causes male pattern baldness.

Over exercising and improper diet put the body into a state of chronic stress, thus preventing hair growth. The stress further leads to a condition known as telogen effluvium (TE). TE is a condition in which the hair follicles go into a resting phase, which leads to an increase in hair shedding. Lack of good nutrition is one of the major reasons of TE, which causes hair thinning. The hair shedding may not necessarily be even as some areas on the scalp lose more hair than others.

Hair fall and testosterone 
Genetics are one of the main reasons men face hair loss. When they encounter this condition there is an increase in the growth of a hormone known as dihydrotestosterone. The basic testosterone is converted to dihydrotestosterone, which further increases hair thinning and hair fall.

In addition, men who are into weightlifting, or bodybuilding athletes take plenty of supplements or steroids that are extremely harmful to you. These steroids increase the intensity of the workouts and muscle mass. However, taking these steroids also increase the testosterone levels majorly, the main contributor in hair loss.

Scalp health and balanced diet
Excessive sweating causes a salty buildup on the scalp. This leads to hair breakage and hair shedding and causes the hair to become dull and dry. To prevent damage to your hair due to sweat use a pH- balanced shampoo + conditioner on a regular basis.

Swimming pools have high levels of chemicals such as chlorine that majorly dry the hair and cause breakage. Regular swimmers must protect the hair with a swimming cap and wash and condition after swimming.

If you are into working out extensively, a balanced diet may not be enough to control your hair loss. Male pattern baldness is a condition that cannot be treated with proper diet or lifestyle changes. One has to seek some kind of treatment. However, even medication or a hair transplant cannot guarantee restoration of hair. Hair transplant, which is a surgical procedure, may not be suitable for everyone. Hence, the best option would be to go for a non- surgical hair replacement, when neither medication, nor a hair transplant are able to restore the hair. It is one of the safest and most popular solutions for hair loss.

In this article, we have discussed how exercise can have an effect on your hair loss. There’s also very little you can do to make your hair grow back when genetics and stress are the main causes. However, with non- surgical hair replacement procedures you can enjoy a having a full head of hair and walk out with pride and confidence.
