Excessive Sweating and Hair Loss

There had been past assumptions regarding excessive sweating on the forehead and it’s connection to hair loss. Clinical studies show that there may be a validity to these claims that for a long time were considered uncertain. Trichologists have now confirmed that there is indeed a connection between excessive forehead sweating and hair loss. It was discovered that human sweat contains an ample amount of lactic acid, which has the ability to eventually thin down and peel off the outer keratin layers of the hair. It also leads to the shriveling of the follicular roots of the hair follicles.

The constant sweating in the forehead and the reaction of lactic acid on the hair results in the dryness of the hair stems, causing it to be brittle and finally breaking it off eventually. Besides the damage that it causes the hair, excessive excretion of lactic acid may cause inflammatory outbreaks on the skin, such as rashes and symptoms of itchiness. The lactic acid has the undesired effect of unbalancing the pH level of the scalp, in which may very well result in the growth of unwanted fungus and bacteria which may contribute to the propagation of dandruff. It may also cause the sedimentary deposits of deep seated dirt inside the scalp pores, congesting and restricting the proper circulation of blood and nutrients to the hair follicles.

The cause of excessive sweating can stem from various causes. Some obvious symptomatic reasons would be that of hormonal imbalance. It was proven with clinical case studies on people that were suffering from excessive sweating that it was indeed a hormonal imbalance on their part. Obvious triggering mechanisms were temperate climate or a sudden change of it, a good example would be that of sweaty palms of the hand and sweaty feet. Other causes of excessive sweating would be of psychological causes. Anxiety, uneasiness and medically trigged causes could be a forthcoming manifestation that causes sweat secretions. The level of rancidity in the human sweat can be caused by high cholesterol levels in the blood stream or lipid secretions that can sometimes cause allergic reaction of the skin, causing irritated and inflamed rashes.

Finding a cure or alternative preventive measures from excessive sweating is not the answer to your problems, but it is better to find the root cause of it. If your sweating is of psychological reasons such as stress, anxieties and nervousness, it is best to find ways of controlling your anxieties or even think of a way to relax your mind. Ask or consult a physician that is related to your stress related problems and if it is necessary, ask for prescriptions that can stave down your stress related problems. Relaxation and a stress free environment may help. Exercise may benefit you in terms of channeling you anxious thoughts towards more productive forms of diversions which will take your mind off worrying.

A healthy dose of exercise has always been recommended as it promotes the healthy circulation of the needed bodily fluids in order to stimulate the endorphine levels of your system. This will enable you to reduce stress and maintain a healthy body at the same time. If you would rather prefer a more simple approach, you could always try some regulated deep breathing exercises that can help your circulatory system.
