Hair loss is a common problem for most of the people across the world. Many factors lead to hair loss and baldness including genetic predisposition, stress, smoking, and more. Some of the factors are inevitable, whereas other factors like inhalation of cigarette smoke can be averted.
When you smoke a cigarette, you get in exposure to countless chemicals that includes a number of carcinogenic components. Some of the ingredients, you inhale while smoking includes tar, nicotine, ammonia, arsenic, carbon monoxide, and hydrogen cyanide.
The adverse effect of smoking can be seen after inhalation of cigarette smoke for a long-term. It negatively influences the quality of life and even sometimes leaves life-threatening impacts. Not every individual faces the same health risk, it varies from person to person.
Smoking causes hair loss
“The chemicals in the cigarette pollute the blood and slowdowns the blood circulation to the scalp”
The smoking damages the cellular level that restricts the blood circulation and causes lack of oxygen. These factors adversely affect the capability to re-grow the hair by slowing down the follicular revitalization. Furthermore, the oxidative stress is generated by the smoking of the cigarette.
Effective Solution of Hair Loss Problem due to Smoking
To get rid of hair loss problem, you should quit the use of the cigarette. There are instances when the miniaturized hair follicles remain alive for some years, which means that non-surgical hair loss treatment can slow or even reverse the effects of hair loss if applied in an early stage. However, once the follicles become inactive, it is not possible to re-grow the hair. To get the natural looking hair again, advanced hair transplant surgery techniques like FUE will be required. In Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) the hair follicles are singly extracted from the donor area (hairy areas) of the patient and are then transplanted to the recipient area.
