Did you know that smoking negatively affects your hair and can contribute to hair loss? A good reason to quit for good!
How does smoking affect hair?
Your hair follicles rely on a steady flow of blood, oxygen and nutrients to function and stimulate hair growth. Smoking significantly impairs circulation to the extremities and thus the hair follicles. Smoking also contaminates our blood and affects the quality of the blood that actually reaches our hair follicles. Some studies have also suggested that smoking may contribute to the clogging of pores on the scalp.
Smoking isn't always the answer to why you're losing hair, but a combination of genetics, stress and DHT can together with smoking become an accelerator for your hair loss
If you are having a hair transplant, smoking will negatively affect your healing and this is true for any type of surgery.
