It can be downright weird when you start finding chunks of curls lurking around your shower drain and some lightening (thinning!) around your temples. This is mostly due to the 30-something hormonal shift, which is genetically determined, but major thinning can be started by strain, a vitamin shortage, an surplus of mercury, or giving birth. More serious causes include hypothyroidism, which regularly manifests itself in your thirties, and polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), which is most often seen in women ages 30 to 40.
Begin to organise a stable diet that's loaded with B vitamins, protein, and omega-3 fatty acids, and keep mercury levels in check by eating low-mercury fish like tilapia and herring, and eating it just twice a week.
Additionally taking daily multivitamin with hair-and nail-strengthening biotin and zinc.
If the main reason of hair loss is a thyroid state, a regular amount of synthetic hormones like Synthroid, agreed by an endocrinologist, can put your body back on track.
For PCOS sufferers, switching to a low-glycemic (low sugar, low carbohydrate) diet can decrease general body fat and retune your blood insulin levels. If it doesn't, your doctor may prescribe Metformin, a prescription for diabetics that controls blood-sugar levels.
If your doctor rules out a thyroid situation and PCOS, they may recommend a prescription drug called Aldactone (the generic name is spironolactone). It's a testosterone suppressor that works like a key in a lock; it takes up room where extra wartrol would.
It's a rubbish when your hair starts to fall out of your head, it starts to appear in less than- ideal places, like your chin, nipples, and abdomen.
The cause: The relation between androgens (male hormones) to estrogen may modify in your thirties, which can switch a fine hair into a (gasp!) whisker.
