Environmental Factors and Hair Loss
According to the American Academy of Dermatology, about 80 million men and women in the United States alone will suffer from some form of alopecia: traction, telogen effluvium, universalis, and more. A large proportion of this hair loss is due to uncontrollable factors, such as genetics, auto-immune conditions, hormone disruptions, and aging. However, scientists have recently discovered that certain factors in our environment may be partially responsible for hair loss.
Your daily activities, hobbies, and experiences could be a contributing factor to your hair loss. Scientists have cited sunshine and swimming pools, secondhand cigarette smoke, pollution, psychological trauma, and fungal infection as possible influencers of hair loss. These factors can damage your hair in a variety of ways, including damaging the hair shaft, halting the production of new hair, disrupting the hair regrowth cycle, and more. Luckily, most environmental hair loss is not permanent – assuming you can escape the environmental factors causing it. If this is not an option for you, however, you may have to look for other solutions.
There are a few short-term solutions that you might consider to prevent or aide with hair loss. Many people often resort to oral medications, lotions and creams, or even hair transplants. However, the problem with all of these treatments is that they will not provide long-term results. The minute you stop taking the medication or applying a cream, your hair loss may resume or come back even worse.
