Does Electromagnetic Radiation From Cell Phones Contribute To Hair Loss?

Our cell phones are a constant presence in our lives. We keep them in our pockets and by our sides almost all the time. As cell phones became ubiquitous over the past quarter-century, many people expressed concerns about whether and how the electromagnetic radiation they emit affects our health. While studies have made clear that there is no link between cell phone use and cancer or other serious conditions, some evidence has emerged, suggesting that prolonged cell phone use may contribute to hair loss.

While not definitive, the 2016 study “Hair Loss Due to Electromagnetic Radiation From Overuse of Cell Phone” published in the Journal of Cosmetology and Trichology concluded that “exposure to cell phone radiation can lead to hair loss” through three different impacts on the body.

Specifically, the researchers looked at the case of a 46-year-old male patient who had an unusual area of hair loss around his left ear. His hair surrounding this area was fragile, but could not be pulled out easily. Thinner, slow-growing hair was also seen on the base of the scalp. The findings of a biopsy indicated “prolonged exposure to an irritant or antigen” but did not indicate typical hair loss conditions such as alopecia areata or androgenetic alopecia.

The study considered previous research on the subject of cell phone use and hair loss and concluded that the radiation emitted from phones could lead to hair loss by:

  • DNA breakage. Subjects tested immediately before and immediately after extended periods of cell phone use showed an increase in DNA single-strand breaks in human hair root cells located around the ear where they held the phone.
  • Genotoxic and hormonal effects of mobile phone radiation. Cell phones impact the circadian patterns of gonadal, adrenal, and pituitary hormones, elevate estrogen, and reduce testosterone. All of these have a negative impact on the hair growth cycle. In addition to causing hair loss, mobile phone radiation can create hormonal imbalance, disturb hair growth regulation, and affect other systems in the body leading to secondary hair loss.

The good news is that the researchers were able to effectively treat the hair loss through the “use of antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, which can aid in the recovery of the damaged cells.” Additionally, “low dose 2% minoxidil application combined with low dose comprehensive nutritional therapy, limiting mobile phone usage and keeping the mobile phone instrument away from the ear, helps in complete regrowth of the hair.”

Again, this research is not conclusive, so there is no reason to throw your phone out the window. But if you do notice unusual hair loss patterns on your scalp near where you usually hold your phone, you should consult with a hair restoration physician.

New Study Sheds Light On Link Between Stress and Hair Loss

New Study Sheds Light On Link Between Stress and Hair Loss

Scientists, researchers, and doctors have known for quite some time that chronic stress can lead to hair shedding and loss. Now, researchers from Harvard University have made a key discovery about the biological mechanics that connect stress and hair loss.

Recently published in the journal Nature, the study found that a major stress hormone in mice puts their hair follicle stem cells into an extended resting phase without regenerating the follicle or the hair. Hair follicle stem cells are what fuel that natural cycle between rest and growth. During the hair growth phase, hair follicle stem cells become activated to regenerate the follicle and hair, and hairs grow longer every day. These stem cells are dormant during the resting phase, causing hairs to shed more easily and frequently. That shedding becomes hair loss when the stem cells remain dormant without regenerating new tissue.

The Harvard researchers identified the specific cell type and molecule responsible for relaying the stress signal to the stem cells. They found that the overproduction of certain hormones triggered by stress had a negative effect on hair follicles and their growth cycle.

Corticosterone is a primary stress hormone produced by the adrenal glands in mice. The human equivalent of corticosterone is cortisol, often called the “stress hormone.” The researchers found that giving mice corticosterone reproduced the stress effect on the stem cells, suggesting that elevated stress hormones indeed negatively affect hair follicle stem cells.  

Normally, time and aging slow down hair follicle regeneration over time, and the resting phase lasts longer. But when the researchers took the stress hormones out of the equation, the stem cells’ resting phase in the subject mice became significantly shorter. Their hair follicles constantly entered the growth phase and regenerated hair follicles throughout their life, even when they were much older.

The study confirms that reducing stress, thereby reducing the amount of cortisol we produce, can have a positive effect on hair loss. That is because stress keeps follicle stem cells from entering the growth phase and regenerating new hair follicles.

Of course, hair loss isn’t the only negative effect that too much stress has on our bodies. It can cause a whole host of health problems and diminish the quality of life. That is why self-care, including effective stress management, is so critical to our physical and mental health. Make sure that you identify a stress-reducing outlet that works for you, whether it is hanging out with friends, being alone with a book, walking your dog, or doing nothing at all.

4 Reasons Behind Female Hair Loss

4 Reasons Behind Female Hair Loss

For decades, stand-up comedians have joked about the many differences between men and women. But it’s doubtful that they would get any laughs if they started riffing about female hair loss. While many cases of hair loss in women arise for the same reasons they do in men, such as stress or genetic predisposition, the distinct nature of female biology and life changes are behind a significant proportion of female hair loss problems.

While you will need a professional diagnosis by a hair restoration physician to determine the exact cause of your hair loss, it is likely that if you are noticing an increase in hair shedding or thinning areas on your scalp, it is due to one of these common reasons behind female hair loss:

Menopause

Women going through menopause produce lower levels of estrogen and progesterone – two hormones critical for hair growth and follicle health. As these hormone levels decrease, hair growth slows while follicles become thin, brittle, and more vulnerable to damage.

Making matters worse, the decrease in hair-promoting hormones is accompanied by an increase in androgens – hormones that trigger follicle miniaturization on the scalp. This makes hair more susceptible to falling out.

The hormonal fluctuations of menopause also contribute to other mental and emotional conditions and lifestyle changes, which themselves can cause hair loss. These can include:

  • Stress
  • Emotional decline due to diminished self-confidence
  • Lack of exercise
  • Imbalanced nutrition
  • Dehydration
  • Damaging hairstyles
  • Medication

Pregnancy

Pregnancy causes wild fluctuations in hormones, as every mom knows. But these hormonal upheavals don’t end after delivery. The months that follow childbirth also see dramatic changes in hormone levels as the body works its way back to its normal state. This hormonal whiplash can take a toll on hair as well. 

Many women notice that their hair seems thicker and fuller during pregnancy than it did beforehand. This is because of elevated estrogen levels that increase the percentage of hairs in the growth cycle while simultaneously freezing hair in the resting phase of hair growth. After pregnancy, estrogen levels fall dramatically, and all the hair that was growing so impressively starts to fall out. While we all shed hair regularly, at a rate of around 80 hairs per day, the extent of postpartum shedding can raise that number to closer to 400 hairs a day.

The good news is that this type of hair loss is almost always temporary, and hair growth will return to normal in short order.

Traction Alopecia

If you apply constant tension to your hair follicles, you will damage, weaken, and ultimately kill them. This is called traction alopecia, and it affects women who wear certain types of hairstyles or engage in other destructive habits.

The five primary causes of traction alopecia are:

  1. Wearing unnecessarily tight ponytails, pigtails, or braids for extended periods.
  2. Trichotillomania, a psychological condition characterized by constant (and often unconscious) hair twisting, pulling, or plucking.
  3. Hairstyles in which hair is tightly wound for a prolonged period.
  4. Hairpieces and weaves that are affixed/clipped to the hair.

Anemia

Anemia involves an insufficient amount of iron in the blood and is one of the most common causes of dietary-related hair loss in women. Low iron levels restrict proper blood flow and reduce the amount of growth-stimulating nutrients that hair follicles need. Changes in diet and iron supplements can help, including eating foods such as spinach, kale, broccoli, and other leafy greens.

Weight Loss and Hair Loss: Is There A Connection?

Weight Loss and Hair Loss: Is There A Connection?

No good deed goes unpunished, so the saying goes. For many people, the good deed of getting in shape and losing excess weight can come with the unexpected and unwelcome punishment of hair loss. Fortunately, hair loss that is associated with weight loss is neither inevitable nor permanent.

Not All Weight Loss Is Created Equal

Putting aside gradual weight loss that comes from a healthy diet and exercise, rapid weight loss caused by illness, stress, or unhealthy crash diets is clinically associated with hair loss. Stress-induced hair loss, also known as telogen effluvium (TE), often happens in tandem with stress-induced weight loss.

But even controlled, healthy, and intentional weight loss can lead to hair loss if the modified diet adopted to shed pounds lacks the nutrients necessary to prevent hair from shedding.

Many dieters fail to get enough protein when they lose weight. This is a big problem for hair health. Protein and the amino acids they contain are essential for hair growth. But sufficient protein intake is also critical for a host of other crucial bodily functions. When the body doesn’t get enough protein, it essentially has to ration how to distribute the little it has. And it will inevitably decide to direct that protein to functions and organs far more critical to survival than hair follicles. Deprived of needed protein, hair becomes more brittle and susceptible to damage, and therefore more likely to fall out.

Make Sure Your Diet Includes Enough Protein

Losing weight and getting enough protein are not mutually exclusive. There are plenty of healthy diets that incorporate protein-rich foods like eggs, fish, and beef. For those who eat a vegan diet, great plant-based sources of protein include:

  • Quinoa
  • Tofu and soy products
  • Chickpeas
  • Chia seeds
  • Lentils
  • Walnuts
  • Almonds
  • Cashews
  • Beans

If you notice that you are losing more hair than usual while dieting, the good news is that it is usually a temporary phenomenon. By ensuring that you get the necessary nutrients that can keep your hair healthy, you can lose unwanted weight while keeping your very-much-wanted hair.

Call The Miami Hair Institute Today To Discuss Your Hair Loss Questions and Concerns

Of course, dietary improvements alone may not stop hair loss or restore your hair to the fullness it once had. At the Miami Hair Institute, our skilled physicians diagnose and treat hair loss cases that can’t be reversed at home. We can help patients suffering from hair loss through advanced hair restoration surgery techniques and alternative non-invasive treatments.

What Is A Scalp Biopsy And Why Would You Need One?

What Is A Scalp Biopsy And Why Would You Need One?

You can’t effectively fix a problem unless you know what it is. That is why understanding the reasons behind hair loss is an essential first step in the hair restoration journey. By understanding the cause of a patient’s hair loss, our hair restoration physicians can develop and implement the most effective treatment strategy specifically tailored to their unique characteristics.

At the Miami Hair Institute, we use a comprehensive methodology that includes gathering a detailed medical history, performing an in-depth scalp examination using state-of-the-art diagnostic and imaging tools, and taking hair mass measurements. If appropriate and indicated, we may perform blood tests to identify any hormonal imbalances or deficiencies that might be contributing to a patient’s hair loss. And in some cases, we may recommend a scalp biopsy to get to the bottom of the issue.

What is a Scalp Biopsy?

When we perform a scalp biopsy, we extract one or two small specimens of scalp tissue and hair follicles for analysis. Each sample is about the size of a pencil eraser. To gather the specimens, we clean a discreet area of the scalp, trim the hair in that area, and administer a local anesthetic. Once we remove the samples, we close the small scar with stitches that we will take out a couple of weeks after the biopsy. The whole procedure takes approximately 15 minutes. After gathering the specimens, we submit them to a skin pathologist specializing in diagnosing hair loss problems.

Why Would We Perform A Scalp Biopsy?

When a follicle scarring process appears to be the cause of a patient’s hair loss, a scalp biopsy is often necessary to establish or confirm a diagnosis. We can use the results of a biopsy to make or confirm a diagnosis of alopecia. We can also obtain important information in cases of unexplained hair loss or when the potential for regrowth is in doubt.

Call the Miami Hair Institute Today For Your Personal Hair Loss Consultation

Not all patients require a scalp biopsy to determine the cause of hair loss and choose the best treatment options. But the first step in discovering why you are losing your hair and what you can do about it is to schedule a hair loss consultation. We invite you to schedule an evaluation at the Miami Hair Institute. Drs. Nusbaum and Rose are internationally acclaimed hair restoration surgeons with more than 40 years of combined experience.

Alcohol Consumption and Hair Loss

Alcohol Consumption and Hair Loss

Just as having one drink may not significantly put you at risk for drunk driving, having the occasional beer, wine, or cocktail will not increase the chances that you will lose your hair. But if you drink heavily and regularly, your alcohol consumption can lead to health issues, like nutritional deficiencies and hormonal problems, that directly impact the strength and resiliency of your hair in ways that can lead to hair loss.

Interference With Absorption of Nutrients

Like the rest of your body, your hair follicles need a steady supply of essential nutrients for strength and growth. If hair does not receive or cannot absorb sufficient vitamins and minerals, it will weaken, die, and fall out.

Excessive alcohol consumption can distract people from eating enough nutrients in their diet. Even if someone who drinks too much eats well, all of that booze interferes with the body’s ability to process and use that fuel to maintain its optimal functioning.

Specifically, heavy drinking can deny hair a sufficient supply of iron, zinc, copper, and protein, all of which are necessary for hair health.
An inadequate amount of iron is one of the more common causes of dietary-related hair loss. Low iron levels limit proper blood flow – something hair follicles need to receive and absorb growth-stimulating nutrients. Excessive drinking can lead to a decrease in the amount of iron-rich foods a person consumes.

Alcohol may also diminish zinc absorption, further increasing the possibility of hair loss. A 2013 study involving people suffering from alopecia areata, telogen effluvium, female pattern hair loss, and male pattern hair loss revealed that zinc deficiency might contribute to hair loss.

As you may remember from your high school biology class, protein and their amino acids are the “building blocks” of the body. That applies to hair, as well. A diet that includes a sufficient amount of protein from various sources can be the key to resilient and growing hair. Drinking alcohol may interfere with the absorption of protein or lead to lower protein consumption.

Drinking Can Lead To Thyroid Problems

When the thyroid produces too much or too little of the hormones that play a critical role in hair growth and retention, hair loss is often the result. Unfortunately, excessive alcohol consumption can contribute to just such disruption.

Both hypothyroidism (too few hormones) and hyperthyroidism (too many) can cause hair loss through its impact on the development of a hormone called dihydrotestosterone (DHT). A synthesized version of the hormone testosterone, DHT plays a role in the development of sexual organs and secondary sexual characteristics, including physical appearance. Unlike testosterone, however, too much DHT disrupts the natural growth cycle of hair and can cause hair follicle shrinkage or elimination, resulting in shedding or thinning hair.

Schedule an Appointment for a Hair Loss Evaluation

Of course, hair loss isn’t the only health problem associated with excessive drinking, and excessive drinking isn’t the only factor that can contribute to hair loss. No matter what the nature or cause of your hair loss issues, we can help.

Medications That Can Cause Hair Loss

Medications That Can Cause Hair Loss

If you’ve ever seen a television ad for a new drug or game-changing medication, you know that about half the ad’s time is taken up by someone reading a seemingly endless list of potential side effects. That’s the way it is for almost any medication – all the good they do also comes with some bad. For many vital and life-sustaining drugs and treatments, one of those side effects can be hair loss.

Drug-induced hair loss can be just as troubling as pattern baldness or any other type of hair loss. The good news, however, is that most hair loss caused by medication is temporary, with hair growing back after you stop taking the drug.

What’s Behind Drug-Induced Hair Loss?

Medications can cause hair loss by interfering with hair’s normal growth cycle. Hair grows during the anagen phase, which usually lasts between two to seven years. Hair then rests during the telogen phase, which is about three months long. At the end of each telogen phase, hair falls out and is quickly replaced by new hair.

Medications can disrupt one or both of these cycles. Telogen effluvium,  the most common form of medication-related hair loss, usually appears two to four months after starting a drug. Telogen effluvium causes hair follicles to go into their resting phase and fall out earlier than they should. People with telogen effluvium usually shed between 30 percent to 70 percent more hairs than the typical 100 and 150 hairs per day.

Drug-induced hair loss that occurs during the anagen phase of the hair cycle is called anagen effluvium. This condition prevents the matrix cells, which produce new hairs, from dividing as they usually would. This type of hair loss usually occurs within a few days to weeks after taking a medication and is a common phenomenon for patients taking chemotherapy drugs for cancer treatment.

What Medications Are Associated With Hair Loss?

In addition to chemotherapy medications, plenty of other common prescription drugs list hair loss as a potential side effect, including:

  • Acne medications containing vitamin A (retinoids)
  • Antibiotics and antifungal medications
  • Steroids
  • Thyroid medications
  • Weight loss drugs
  • Birth control pills
  • Anticlotting drugs
  • Mood stabilizers
  • Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs)
  • Cholesterol-lowering drugs
  • Antidepressants
  • Drugs that suppress the immune system
  • Drugs that treat breast cancer and other cancers
  • Epilepsy drugs (anticonvulsants)
  • High blood pressure medications (anti-hypertensives), such as beta-blockers, ACE inhibitors, and diuretics
  • Hormone replacement therapy
  • Parkinson’s disease drugs

As noted, medication-related hair loss is almost always reversible. Talk to your doctor about any concerns you have about your prescription, and never discontinue a medication because of hair loss without first discussing it with your physician.

Another Reason to Stop Smoking: Hair Loss

Another Reason to Stop Smoking: Hair Loss

You don’t need us to tell you how bad smoking is for your health. You already know that it causes lung cancer, heart disease, and a whole range of other serious ailments. But even if the risk of such chronic health problems isn’t enough to convince you to quit, perhaps the knowledge that smoking can contribute to hair loss will do the trick.

Research has established a significant connection between the harmful chemicals and other materials in cigarette smoke and hair loss in men and women. Here are some of the ways that smoking can kill your otherwise healthy head of hair.

Damaged Hair Follicles

Tobacco smoke contains a grabbag full of substances that are just awful for the human body, including nicotine, caffeine, acetone, aluminum, ammonia, arsenic, benzene, butane, cadmium, tellurium, carbon monoxide, goroside, and cyanide. Of these, nicotine is the biggest villain in terms of hair loss, as it damages hair follicles, making them weaker and more prone to falling out.

Reduced Blood Flow

Smoking limits the flow of blood in your body and reduces the amount of essential nutrients that make their way to your hair follicles. Without an adequate supply of those nutrients, your follicles will grow weak instead of just growing, and will ultimately fall out.  

Increased DHT Levels

DHT is an androgen that helps to give men male traits. Typically, due to genetics or other hormonal changes, hair follicles develop a sensitivity to DHT and begin to miniaturize. As a result, the hair growth cycle is shortened, and eventually, new hair stops growing. As such, individuals with higher DHT levels may be more prone to hair loss. Since cigarettes increase the production of DHT, smoking can make hair loss and a receding hairline more likely.

Increased Oil Secretion

The nicotine in tobacco can accelerate the body’s secretion of dopamine, a neurotransmitter that promotes the production of adrenaline. In turn, the increase in adrenaline can cause more oil to be secreted on the scalp. Too much oil can block hair follicles’ ability to get the nutrients they need and make them more prone to falling out.

Postpartum Hair Loss Is An Unwelcome, But Very Common, Phenomenon

Being a new mom isn’t easy. The dramatic changes in responsibilities and routines, chronic sleep deprivation, and other new challenges can be overwhelming. However, for many women, the weeks and months after giving birth also come with another unwanted and unexpected sight: hair loss. 

Recently, a former contestant on The Bachelor and Married At First Sight, Jamie Otis, shared her experiences and struggles with postpartum hair loss. Also called postpartum alopecia – the phenomenon affects up to 90 percent of new mothers who have some degree of hair loss three to five months after giving birth. For many women like Otis, the hair loss includes excessive shedding, even hair falling out in clumps, during that time. The good news for moms is that this hair loss is almost always temporary and hair growth returns to normal in plenty of time for the child’s first birthday party.

Hormonal Whiplash

Pregnancy causes wild fluctuations in hormones, as every mom knows. But these hormonal upheavals don’t end after delivery. The months that follow childbirth also see dramatic changes in hormone levels as the body works its way back to its normal state. This hormonal whiplash can take a toll on hair as well.  

Many women notice that their hair seems thicker and fuller during pregnancy than it did beforehand. This is because of elevated estrogen levels that increase the percentage of hairs in the growth cycle, while simultaneously freezing hair that is in the resting phase of hair growth. After pregnancy, estrogen levels fall dramatically, and all the hair that was growing so impressively starts to fall out. While we all shed hair regularly, at a rate of around 80 hairs per day, the extent of postpartum shedding can raise that number to closer to 400 hairs a day.

While you may not be able to stop postpartum shedding, changing up your hairstyle and keeping control of your stress levels can help you ride out this temporary condition.  Just as life slowly returns to a new normal as the months go by after having a baby, so too will your hair.

Psychological Impact Of Hair Loss On Men and Women

Psychological Impact Of Hair Loss On Men and Women

There are plenty of visual signs of hair loss: a receding hairline, hair left in a brush, in the drain, on your pillow, a growing bald spot on the crown of your head. But not all of the impact of hair loss can be seen in the mirror. Losing your hair can have devastating emotional and psychological side effects.

While a full head of hair may no longer be necessary for our physical health and survival as it was for our ancient ancestors, it retains a symbolic power in our society and in cultures around the world. Hair conveys strength and well-being, while the lack of it is often perceived, unfairly, as a sign of early aging and less desirable qualities.

People experiencing hair loss often internalize these inaccurate and unjust perceptions, with a corresponding reduction in self-esteem and heightened anxiety over their “declining” appearance. In more extreme cases, people who are losing their hair can develop body dysmorphic disorder, suffer from ongoing depression, and endure a diminished quality of life. Some folks may be so embarrassed by their hair loss that they isolate themselves and avoid social situations, further accelerating an unnecessary spiral of loneliness and shame.

Hair Loss Is Especially Hard On Women

The psychological costs of hair loss take a toll on men and women alike. Unquestionably, however, hair loss can be even more devastating for females. While a bald man or one with a receding hairline may not raise an eyebrow, the same can’t be said for women even though they account for about 40 percent of all hair loss cases. Society’s expectations about female appearance and attractiveness have made hair loss a particularly traumatic condition for women, leading to a host of emotional issues.

These issues manifest themselves in relationships, careers, and physical health. Hair loss can take its toll through: 

  • Increased stress, grief, or unease during routine activities
  • Avoidance of new romantic relationships or withdrawal in existing ones
  • Overwhelming feelings of humiliation and embarrassment or humiliation
  • Jealousy or envy about those who don’t experience hair loss
  • Career-related obstacles, particularly for individuals in broadcasting or other appearance-focused positions
  • Shutting off from friends or family and missing out on important life events for fear of highlighting hair loss symptoms

Given the foregoing, vanity is not the reason that so many people seek help with their hair loss issues. Rather, individuals with hair loss who pursue hair restoration treatments are making a bold and courageous step to improve their quality of life and care for their own emotional and mental health.
