How can you stimulate hair regrowth and what are actually the causes of hair loss?
If you are losing your hair or if you are having problems to regrow your hair you are sharing quite a common problem with millions of people all around the globe.
Typical causes for hair loss are stress, illness, hormonal problems, the experience of traumatic events, pregnancy, an overactive (or less active than normal) thyroid gland, deterioration of environmental conditions, lack of important vitamins and minerals in your nutrition, sleep deprivation and there are other causes.
Information provided by research seems to indicate that one of the most common causes of hair loss and/or inhibited hair regrowth is a deregulated thyroid gland.
And that’s also why many hair regrowth products and drugs act on restoring the normal activity of the thyroid gland.
A fairly high percentage of men suffer from hair loss and are unsuccessful in regrowing heir’s hair.
But unfortunately, nowadays there are also more and more women suffering from this condition.
In women, this problem is often linked to hormonal changes during- and after pregnancy.
However, this condition disappears in most cases once the hormonal environment has stabilized several months after having given birth.
