Does Drinking Cause Hair Loss?

Alcohol Cause Hair Loss

While excessive drinking is known to cause a host of health problems, there is no direct link between any amount of drinking and a thinner head of hair. With that being said, however, alcohol can interfere with natural processes that encourage hair growth, especially when mixed with other risky lifestyle factors.

In most cases, other factors only interfere to cause hair loss in the case of repeated heavy drinking. Hair loss can result from poor nutrient circulation to the scalp, due to a poor diet. Foremost among the important nutrients for hair circulation are zinc, iron, and copper, all of which are harder to absorb when alcohol is present in the bloodstream.

In addition to issues with nutrient uptake, excessive alcohol consumption can also lead to hormonal issues. Excessive drinking on a regular basis can affect your thyroid and in turn hormones responsible for regulating many bodily processes. Some studies have linked hypo- and hyperthyroidism may contribute to hair loss, if over a prolonged period.

While there is a less certain link between direct alcohol consumption and hair loss, repeated alcohol consumption combined with other lifestyle factors, such as smoking and diet, can lead to conditions that cause hair loss. For older individuals or those affected by conditions resulting in hair loss, many hair restoration solutions circulate, but few give lasting results and few side effects at the time of treatment.

One solution to consider when looking for treatment options is scalp micropigmentation. As a cosmetic treatment, scalp micropigmentation is usually accomplished within 2-3 rounds of treatment and has few side effects both during and after treatment. This process works by injecting small amounts of pigment into the scalp, creating a fuller looking head of hair in those with thinning hair and a freshly shaved look in those who are bald.

A fuller looking head of hair is within reach, no matter the initial cause. The scalp micropigmentation experts of Hairline Ink are here to develop a customized solution for your hair loss today.
