Hair loss…no one enjoys it yet, unfortunately, many of us will suffer from it eventually. Thankfully, a new procedure known as A-PRP therapy helps your body re-grow your own hair. Many times, hair loss is caused by a genetic condition known as androgenetic alopecia. However, there are other things that can cause temporary hair loss, as well.
There are certain prescription medications whose potential side effects include temporary hair loss. Blood pressure medications, antidepressants, blood thinners, and even birth control pills can cause temporary hair loss in their users. If you are experiencing hair loss as a side effect of taking a medication, be sure to inform your doctor so they can prescribe you a different medication.
Many times when someone’s body undergoes extreme stress, they experience hair loss. For example, anesthesia and surgery puts your body under large amounts of physical stress. It is not uncommon for someone who has just had surgery to experience some degree of hair loss weeks or months after their surgery. High stress levels alter the life cycle of the hair follicles on your head and lead to hair loss.
It is not uncommon for people to experience hair loss if they have poor nutrition. If your body does not get all of the nutrients it needs, you may notice your hair starting to thin. A diet low in protein can negatively affect your hair growth and can inhibit your body’s ability to grow new hair. If you are experiencing hair loss, try adjusting your diet to get more of the essential nutrients your body needs.
