Hair, no matter how it is styled or cut, is one of the ultimate symbols of femininity. A lot of Mexican women boost their self-esteem through physical appearance, so hair and beauty is such a lucrative and flourishing industry. In a world where tips for caring and styling hair flood beauty magazines, and advertisements for smooth, perfect tresses dominate television commercials, women cannot help but be conscious about how their hair looks.
Thinning hair and hair loss are a common complaint among middle-aged men, which is why hair transplants in Mexico are becoming exceedingly standard for males. Hair loss, however, could actually occur in women as well. It’s natural for women to lose fifty up to a hundred strands per day, but abnormal hair loss can be triggered by much more serious causes. LeesvilleDailyLeader.com shares several reasons why women are experiencing hair loss:
Since it’s unnecessary for survival, the body can choose to stop delivering nutrients that supports hair growth, and reserve them for the baby instead.
- Thyroid Imbalance
An overactive thyroid gland can accelerate one’s metabolism, which causes the body to consume nutrients needed for hair growth.
- Female pattern baldness
40% of women experience visible hair loss by age 40, proving that baldness isn’t limited to men.
It is an impulse disorder which causes people to pull out hair from their skin.
- Poor diet
Junk foods that contain artificial sweeteners and preservatives can impair hair growth.
Traction alopecia can be caused by repeatedly wearing hair tightly into braids or ponytails.
- Trauma or shock
Traumatic events causes stress, thus causing hair loss.
- Autoimmune disease
It can cause the immune system to attack healthy cells; many of these diseases results to hair loss.
Other surprising causes of hair loss include crash diets and contraceptive pills. After losing 15 pounds or more, hair loss may occur if a diet lacks protein or contains too much Vitamin A. There are also some drugs, like birth control pills, which also cause hair to thin. Some women lose hair due to the hormones that suppress ovulation.
Women become devastated at the thought of a terrible haircut or at the event of a bad hair day, so it’s not surprising if a woman’s loss of hair can have fatal consequences on her self-confidence. A woman’s hair is her crowning glory and such a loss could cause more emotional stress and insecurities. Thankfully, hair restoration in Mexico is now possible due to hair restoration clinics like Baja Hair Center., headed by Dr Sara Lea Salas.
