Does smoking cause hair loss?

smoking cause hair loss

As we age, many of us experience hair loss, but lifestyle and environment can hasten it. Even if you’re generally healthy, smoking poses numerous risks. Hair loss affects smokers of all races more often. Need another reason to quit smoking? It leads to hair loss.

Follicle health and other factors contribute significantly to hair loss. Factors like radiation, stress, and hormonal changes lead to hair loss. Nicotine narrows blood vessels in cigarettes, cutting off blood flow. Tobacco also exposes you to carbon monoxide, which reduces your body’s oxygen levels. Adequate blood flow and oxygen are crucial for hair growth. Smoking-induced APA suggests an oxygen deficiency. With the proper nutrients, hair either grows properly or falls out. Hair follicles are more sensitive to DHT in individuals with APA, causing them to miniaturize. Reduced oxygen levels in the body lead to increased DHT production and subsequent hair thinning or loss.

Cigarette smoking can lead to various hair loss forms, including Telogen Effluvium. Switching to e-cigarettes isn’t a safeguard against hair loss; they can also damage scalp health. When you start smoking, you might notice hair thinning, a receding hairline, or widespread hair loss. You often need a specialist’s expertise to treat hair loss effectively.

Whether you’re quitting or continuing to smoke, methods exist to fight the hair loss caused by smoking. Scalp micropigmentation provides a denser hair appearance with enduring outcomes. The tailored procedure involves injecting pigment into the skin and carries few risks.
