Smoking comes with many health risks, regardless of how healthy you are in other parts of your life. Notably, smoking can cause hair loss. If you need one more reason to kick the habit, the firm scientific proof that smoking leads to hair loss is a good place to start.
Other than nicotine, you inhale carbon monoxide, which reduces body oxygen. Smoking reduces oxygen flow to your scalp. Blood flow and oxygen fuel hair growth; smoking-induced APA can minimize oxygen. In APA sufferers, DHT makes hair follicles smaller. Lower oxygen boosts DHT production, causing hair thinning or loss.
Whether you are a recovering smoker or looking to kick the habit, techniques are available to fight back against the hair loss that smoking causes. A cosmetic procedure known as scalp micro pigmentation can give you a fuller-looking head of hair with lasting results. Scalp micro pigmentation offers a fuller hair appearance. The procedure injects tailored pigment into the skin with minimal risks.
