Hormones gone wild and loss of hair- oh my! It is bad enough when hormones are not functioning properly but hair loss too…now that’s just cruel. So, how do hormones and hair loss even relate? Sure there other reasons for hair loss such as major surgery, severe illness, auto immunity, significant amount of stress or taking medicines (with the side effect of losing hair.) However, if your hormones are out of balance that can cause hair loss too.
So, let’s look into a few hormones that could be a hair loss culprit, if there is indeed a hormone imbalance. Testosterone is most commonly known as the male hormone, but women have this hormone too, just in smaller amounts. Testosterone is the primary male sex hormone. If a woman has too much of this hormone, it can cause facial and body hair and hair loss on the scalp. Then there’s estradiol, a form of estrogen a female sex hormone which is produced by the ovaries. Having estradiol levels too low can cause hair loss on the scalp and unwanted facial hairs too. Last but not least there is progesterone. Progesterone is another female hormone produced by the ovaries during ovulation. Having too low of this hormone can also cause hair loss. These three hormones need to be balanced if you do not want to have hair loss.
There is hope when it comes to hair loss. Hair loss can be stopped and regained by balancing the hormones, reducing stress, eating healthy and making sure your nutrient levels are optimal. You can find out if your hormones are balanced by doing a hormone saliva test kit. A hormone test kit is the best way to find out which hormones are causing your hair loss and is the beginning of getting your hormones and hair back on track. We know how hard it is going through hormonal changes and losing your hair. You shouldn’t have to lose hair over your hormones!
