Does hair loss occur due to hormonal imbalance?
87 Views
1 Answer
1 year ago
Yes, hormonal imbalance is one of the major reasons for hair loss. There is a delicate balance between various hormones in the body, especially androgens or male sex hormones (testosterone) and female sex hormones (estrogen). Testosterone gets converted to its derivative called dihydrotestosterone (DHT) which causes shrinking of hair follicles in the scalp causing hair to fall out. Hence, when the balance between hormones gets disturbed due to a rise in androgens or a drop in female sex hormones [such as in polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) or menopause], hair loss called androgenic alopecia occurs. Hair loss may also occur due to an imbalance in thyroid hormones or insulin.
The information given above is for Hair Loss which is the active ingredient of Hair Loss.
