Obesity provides a set of health issues that can prove to be detrimental to your efforts to maintain healthy hair growth. One of the natural causes of obesity is the lack of activity or a sedentary lifestyle that impacts peripheral circulation of blood resulting in lack of nourishment for organs and extremities including hair follicles.

Curejoy Expert Gina Hodge Explains:

There is no conclusive evidence linking obesity as one of the triggers for excessive hair loss. The assumption could stem from some obese people exhibiting symptoms of receding hair line and hair thinning. But this is sheer coincidence.

But obesity provides a set of health issues that can prove to be detrimental to your efforts to maintain healthy hair growth. One of the natural causes of obesity is the lack of activity or a sedentary lifestyle that impacts peripheral circulation of blood resulting in lack of nourishment for organs and extremities including hair follicles. The saturated fatty diet that’s a cause, and unfortunately a craving for most people suffering from obesity, increases cholesterol levels and sebum that contain one of the two forms of DHT, an irritant for the sebaceous glands and a cause for hair fall. Obesity puts your hormonal balance completely out of sync which can contribute to thinning of hair.

All the above issues can also result from other imbalances (or a combination) and no scientific research has been able to put a definitive finger on obesity. Genetic reasons or unwarranted medical conditions are major factors for hair loss. Countering obesity will mean getting back your body balance and health back and stronger hair will come as a pleasant side effect.

It never occurred to me that obesity and hair loss could be interconnected. As you said there are no evidence but I would still like to dig more information about it. Nice article though.
