Marital Status, Smoking, Drinking Affect Hair Loss in Women

Did you know that women who are divorced or widowed have been shown to experience more hair loss than those who are married?

The American Society of Plastic Surgeons conducted studies several years ago involving identical twins which concluded that factors such as marital status, cigarette smoking, and alcohol consumption were the strongest predictors of hair loss in women. It was shown that the twin who was divorced or widowed had more hair loss than the twin who remained married.

The results were a different story in men as genetics beat out other factors such as smoking, heavy sun exposure, a history of dandruff, hypertension, lack of regular exercise, and elevated testosterone levels.

While the professionals at New England Associates® may not be able to help with relationships or smoking or drinking, they can help you with the resulting hair loss.
