Rapid weight loss that occurs over the course of several weeks or months can have various side effects, including hair loss. In fact, any type of crash dieting can affect your overall health, which can in turn cause you to lose some of your hair for as long as your weight continues to drop.
Weight loss and hair loss are significant because they can cause you to not only have an unhealthy look, but can distress your body internally as well. Every time you eat or drink something, your body is provided with many of the vitamins and nutrients needed for you to function properly. Therefore, if you are losing weight quickly, your body will naturally have a nutritional deficit which can lead to hair loss over an extended period of time.
If you’re experiencing hair loss, consult with your physician first to rule out any underlying medical conditions and to gain a better understanding of your hair loss. Bosley recommends that you consult your physicians before starting any type of diets or regiments. If you’re experiencing permanent hair loss, or want more information about your hair loss, Bosley suggests that you set up a free consultation with one of the Bosley Professionals. During this consultation, you’ll learn more about your hair loss and the treatments that are available to you.
