3 Invisible Obstacles to Hair Growth

The first obstacle.

  • Iron is so important because iron, or more specifically, hemoglobin is what carries oxygen through the sales in your body to help with growth. But specifically for hair, the oxygen is what your hair cells need to crawl or regenerate. If you are low in iron, then your hair follicle is not getting the oxygen it needs to produce hair. Therefore, if it's not getting that oxygen, it needs to produce hair. That results in hair loss or slow-growing hair.
  •  Make sure you get your iron checked. Usually, when you go in and get your blood work done,  the doctors may not do a Fairton check. Typically we like to see your iron or ferreton levels rather at 70. And but when it's lower than that, particularly if it's lower than thirty. That's a lot of times when it's lower than 30, then you may be dealing with slow-growing hair.
  •  From high to low. And you may be normal in the range, but for proper hair growth, you need to be optimal. So even if, for example, ferreton levels are normal and within the normal range, that doesn't mean they're optimal for hair growth.
  • Diet habit. I wasn't getting enough protein. It seemed like my hair was still growing, but it was growing very slowly. So I got my fair chin checked, and guess what my fair chin was? It was 8:30. 30 is low. So my iron wasn't low, but my iron storage was low. So that was like a red flag. So I had to just take it and be more mindful of what I was eating.

I start to increase my green leafy vegetables and eat more iron-rich food to build up my ferritin level. So that would again jump-start my hair growth.

It's very important for y'all to get your iron and fair chin checked. That may be the first hidden obstacle that is blocking your hair growth.


The second obstacle is hormonal imbalances. 

  •  Hormones include so many things. I'll just talk about stress and water. Absolutely. Those two things can also affect your hair growth. But hormonal imbalances, and some of the main hormonal imbalances would be, particularly for women, estrogen and early menopause. When you're going through menopause, your hormones are changing, particularly your estrogen levels and your progesterone levels.
  • Those hormones are directly responsible for hair growth, keeping your hair, and the active growing stage, which is the antigen stage. When those estrogen and progesterone levels start to. Then that is affecting your hair growth cycle. So your hair is going to start growing slower. And if estrogen and progesterone drop, guess what increases? Androgen or testosterone. So you may have more androgen in your body. And as an indication of that, for women, you may see things like peach fuzz and whiskers.
  • If you get whiskers, that's an indication that you may have higher levels of antigen. When you have higher levels of antigen, that's that may also lead to shrinkage of your hair follicle. And when your hair follicle is starting to shrink, of course, that results in thinner hair.
  • Those types of hormonal imbalances affect your hair when you're going through menopause. Dihydrotestosterone is what affects men. A lot of men may deal with male-pattern hair loss. Dihydrotestosterone, or DHT, causes the hair follicle to shrink. And some of the things that you can do about that would be to take humo blockers. You can eat rich foods and di di DHT blockers. You can do things such as do green tea rents. There have been studies that show doing a green tea rinse on your scalp. Green tea is a natural DHT blocker.
  • Going through this process of menopause, or even if you're not going through menopause, you can eat more estrogen-rich foods to help with your estrogen levels. A lot of times those are your whole food, whole vegetables, whole fruits, and vegetables are high in estrogen as well. And, of course, you can talk to your doctor. So there are some other things, like hormone replacements. Talk to your doctor about things that you can do if you're dealing with lower levels of estrogen. Estrogen, progesterone antigen, and other things like thyroid. It's another hormone that's associated with hair loss.


The third obstacle is scalp cleansing, which may be blocking your hair growth.

  • What is your norm in terms of how often you cleanse your scalp? And there are other things that you can do if you can't physically cleanse your scalp every week. You can clarify your scalp using something like an apple cider vinegar rinse. So it is very imperative for healthy hair.
