Can Hair Loss Due to Hormone Imbalance be Reversed? Either way, when these reproductive hormones are out of balance, such as during pregnancy or menopause, they can affect the health of your hair and even lead to hair loss or thinning.
Also, which hormone makes your hair grow?
Both male and female hormones affect hair growth. Male hormones known as androgens — a category that includes testosterone — stimulate hair growth on the face and body, and create fuller, thicker hair on the head. In women, ovaries and adrenal glands naturally produce androgens, but only very small amounts.
What hormone causes hair growth in males?
High and constant levels of stress cause the adrenal glands to become overactive due to the increased need for the stress hormone, cortisol. When the male body is stressed, it also produces additional testosterone and adrenaline. Additional testosterone means more DHT which often leads to hair loss in men.
