Can Lack of Sleep Cause Hair Loss?
A lack of sleep can lead to many health problems, but can too few hours of shut-eye also lead to hair loss?
A lack of sleep can lead to a reduced capacity for your cells to function, which can lead to hair loss through the decrease in cell productivity. This mainly comes from the processes that the body undergoes during sleep, and less quality sleeping time means less time for stem cells to function productively.
According to one study, there can be some auxiliary effects from a lack of sleep that can contribute to hair loss, such as elevated stress levels. This is due to the hormones and neurotransmitters released when you are stressed, which can lead to stunted hair growth or hair thinning.
HGH (Human Growth Hormone), for example, is critical for the growth of hair and is typically found in lower levels in those who routinely get less sleep than they need. For those genetically predisposed to male pattern baldness or female pattern hair loss, lack of sleep and the resultant stress (or vice-versa) can trigger these conditions.
For the millions of men and women in the United States that face hair loss, there are many solutions that claim to be a cure-all, or ‘correct’ solution. Only some of these are effective, and even fewer achieve lasting results without consistent retreatment. One solution to consider is scalp micropigmentation, a cosmetic process that involves injecting small amounts of pigment into the skin in order to create the appearance of a fuller head of hair.
Scalp micropigmentation is ideal for men or women facing a thinning head to hear, or for men who are bald, to create a clean-shaven look. With the scalp micropigmentation experts at Hairline Ink, most of our clients complete their treatment within 2-3 sessions, with results that last years and few side effects both during and after treatment.
