hormonal hair loss


Hair loss is a natural process, as our hair is constantly renewed and new hair strands replace the lost ones. On average, we lose 100 hair strands a day. We tend to lose even more in autumn and spring. The amount of natural hair loss varies from person to person. Losing some hair while brushing or washing is perfectly normal. A cause for concern may be if you’ve been losing more and more hair while brushing, or finding lots of hair strands on your clothes, while hardly any or no new baby hairs appear. In this case, hormonal hair loss may be the cause.

There are many causes for hormonal hair loss, let’s take a look at the most common ones.



Adolescent hair loss is due to hormonal effects/changes during adolescence. In these years hair becomes more difficult to manage and easily greases, due to the overproduction of sebaceous glands. Increased oiliness can cause the hair to smell unpleasant and hair loss can also occur if the sebaceous gland clogs the hair follicles. Just as teenagers’ faces are affected by this period, so are their scalp and hair. If they don’t pay enough attention to thorough cleansing and moisturizing of the scalp, they may even develop inflammatory symptoms, similar to facial acne.

During the adolescent years, it is important for young people to take the time to experience the big changes that are taking place inside them. On the contrary, this is when they are the most stressed and when they are also faced with the question of choosing a career path.

Stress, being overworked, mood swings and emotional ups and downs can easily cause hair loss. It can also be triggered by an inadequate, nutrient-poor diet, acidification and certain thyroid conditions.

expectant mothers

Many people find that their beautifully shiny and incredibly voluminous hair goes thin during breastfeeding. There’s no need to panic, this is a perfectly natural phenomenon: it affects 40-50% of women and the problem goes away after a few months.


It is shocking, but true! Hair loss affects fifty percent of men. The vast majority of cases are hormonal, usually caused by elevated levels of the hormone DHT or by DHT sensitivity in the hair follicles. However, hair loss may be a sign or side effect of a disease, so it is important to identify the exact cause.

However, hair loss may be a sign or side effect of a disease, so it is important to identify the exact cause.


In both women and men, high testosterone levels can cause problems – including excessive hair loss. When this happens, blood flow to the hair follicles is reduced, so the roots do not get enough nutrients, causing the hair to weaken and then eventually die.

High levels of testosterone can often cause androgenic hair loss, so it’s worth getting your levels tested. If it is too high, it’s important to investigate the cause, as the disorder can also be caused by polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), insulin resistance (IR), menopause, adrenal gland disorders, stress or thyroid disorders.

If you have hormonal imbalances, make sure you see an endocrinologist who can provide expert help. Most of the time, medication can help normalize the condition, but a healthy lifestyle also makes a big difference, such as changing your eating habits, for example by including more nettle and flaxseed in your diet.


Unfortunately, if your thyroid gland malfunctions, it can affect almost your whole body. It is important to be aware that very often increased hair loss is the only warning sign of a thyroid problem. However, a simple blood test is an easy way of finding out if there is a problem. With proper treatment, symptoms and hormonal hair loss can be reduced or even completely eliminated.


During pregnancy, many women report thicker, shinier hair, due to higher levels of estrogen and progesterone and because of increased blood flow.

However, intermittent hair loss can occur after childbirth, which can unfortunately make life miserable for expectant mothers. It usually occurs in the first 2-4 months after childbirth. Excessive hormonal hair loss usually slows down after about six months and hair starts to grow back slowly.

An excellent solution to this problem is to use chemical-free, natural products that do not cause irritation. Oxygeni Hair has created a complex anti-hair loss product bundle that is vegan and made from 100% natural ingredients. In addition, a balanced diet, vitamins to take during pregnancy and possibly consciously reducing stress can all help to reverse the process of hormonal hair loss.
