If you’re struggling with hair loss, you may wonder about the causes and whether there’s anything you can do to prevent it. Although hair loss is common, different risk factors and underlying issues may cause changes in your hair growth, including your hormones.
Learn what you need to know about how hormones affect the growth of your hair.
Understanding how hair grows
Your hair follicles contain cells of protein at the bottom. These cells make up the root of your hair from which the hair grows. The root needs nourishment to keep your hair growing, which is delivered by the blood vessels in your scalp.
Your hair goes through cycles of growth and shedding made up of three phases:
- The anagen phase, the phase of active hair growth that lasts for two to six years
- The catagen phase, a transitional phase that lasts two to three weeks in which the root begins to shrink away from the scalp
- The telogen phase, or resting phase, which lasts for about 100 days and includes the shedding of between 25-100 hairs each day
Different hair follicles are in different stages at any given time, with the largest percentage of hair in the anagen phase.
The role of hormones on hair loss
Androgen hormones, sometimes referred to as “male” hormones, like DHEA and testosterone, play the largest role in your overall hair growth. When your levels of these hormones are too high, you may experience excess hair growth, especially on the body or face. However, when your hormone levels drop, the reverse occurs and can lead to thinning hair and even hair loss.
The hormones produced by your thyroid also play an important role in hair growth and hair loss. When your thyroid isn’t active enough (hypothyroidism), your metabolism slows. To compensate, your body begins to shut down “less important” functions, such as hair growth.
Menopausal women and women with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) or who are pregnant may also notice changes in their hair growth. This is typically because of changes or imbalances in estrogen and progesterone levels. The largest drop in estrogen occurs in perimenopause and menopause. Stress can exacerbate the effects of the loss of estrogen, causing further hair loss and thinning

At first I had some nerves surrounding the procedure, however, these were soon gone when reassured by the professional staff. So much so I came back for a second hair transplant. The procedure was painless and was completed on the same day, allowing for visible results with minimal scarring.
