What is the relationship between smoking and hair loss ?

Smoking is a bad daily habit, which 70% of the peoples are addicted to. Smoking has so many risks on your health like lung cancer, asthma, and chronic bronchitis but the thing you don’t know is “Smoking can lead to hair loss”.

Maybe most of the people when they listen to this term for the first time they won’t believe it, but it is the truth.

Most researchers in the hair transplantation field have confirmed that smoking is one of the main causes leading to hair loss.

And here in this article, we can count the main four reasons which lead to hair loss:

1-Smoking can reduce blood circulation to small blood vessels, including those in the head and scalp.

2-Smoking can reduce liver function, which regulates hormones that can affect hair growth.

3-Smoking can lead to clogged pores on the scalp, making it difficult for hair to grow.

4-Smoking can cause poor growth of transplanted grafts.

A study, conducted in the UK and published recently in the British journal BMJ, supports findings from previous studies that found that toxins in cigarettes harm the body’s hormones, which are responsible for producing and maintaining hair, as well as hair follicles.

In most cases, smoking will not be the primary cause of hair loss. But even so, you should stop smoking to help improve your chances of preventing further hair loss and to preserve your health now and in the long-term.
