Smoking Causes Hair Loss

no smoking sign

Im sure that everybody knows the fact that smoking is bad! Among the conditions it causes are cancer, heart problems, cardiovascular disease and more.

But recent studies add one more condition that can be caused by smoking and it is hair loss. Italian scientists made laboratory experiments on mice, who were living in a smoky environment for 3 months.

As result the furry little animals were not as furry any more, actually they lost almost all of their fur!

The scientists came to a conclusion that the tobacco smoke damages the hair bulbs and shortens their life. And with out bulb their can be no hair!

This is not the only way smoking causes hair loss tough. As you know a healthy hair comes from a healthy scalp and in order to have a healthy scalp you need a good blood supply. Its a known fact that smoking has a negative impact on the blood supply and the circulatory system.
  1. Smoking produces carbon monoxide which inhibits the blood's capacity to carry oxygen.
  2. Nicotine causes a jump in adrenaline which increases blood pressure and suddenly makes the heart beat faster than normal.
  3. Nicotine causes blood vessels to constrict which makes it harder for the heart to pump blood through the arteries which impacts the blood circulatory system.
Knowing that oxygenated blood is what delivers all the proteins and nutrients its only normal to assume that something that has a negative effect on the blood supply is indeed a reason for hair loss.

So listening to common sense and the voice of the mice tells us that in order to have a beautiful hair or any hair at all you better quit smoking!

Thanx for the little suggestion. It's really helpful. I was losing my hair & suffering from over sweating problem, so I kicked off cigarette & hot coffee/tea & cold drinks.

Nicotine & caffeine are devils. People started facing physical problems when these two were discovered.
