What are hormones and hair growth?
HORMONES AND HAIR GROWTH?
The other day one of our clients came in wanting to get her neck waxed for the first time.
Though she is blonde and blue-eyed, she had begun growing dark hairs along the sides of her neck – she feels sure it was caused by a hormonal change.
It was wonderful to bring her neck back to hair-free. We followed up with her usual brow tint and brow wax, and she left looking absolutely gorgeous.
We’ll be seeing her again soon right before her wedding in March.
Hormones can certainly cause hair to grow in unexpected places. Some women experience beard-like growth during pregnancies, for example.
Whatever it is that you’ve got going on, the likelihood is that we’ve come across hair there before and know how to deal with it.
So come see us with your hairy situations – we’ll happily help you out!
How does hormones affect hair growth?
According to Sophia Emmanuel, Certified Trichologist from Crown Worthy Trichology Studio, “The endocrine system is made up of endocrine glands. The ovaries, thyroid, pancreas, and other glands all secrete hormones that circulate in the blood and regulate how we function.
Hormone imbalance can affect body activity such as hair growth. Too much of a hormone or not enough can lead to diffuse hair loss, also known as telogen effluvium, defined as excessive hair loss from all over the scalp.”
You see, the endocrine system works to keep balance in the body. Unfortunately, when our body is off balance, a physical side effect is diffuse hair loss.
