Poor Blood Circulation

 
The main components of tobacco are nicotine, caffeine, acetone, aluminum, ammonia/ammonia, arsenic, benzene, butane, cadmium, tellurium, carbon monoxide, go reside, and cyanide/cyanide.
 
When you smoke, your blood circulation decreases, and nutrient levels in your blood drop. Because when you smoke cigarettes Nicotine, carbon monoxide, and other toxic chemicals enter your bloodstream through the lungs.
 
Hair follicles require adequate amounts of oxygen, nutrients, and minerals to produce healthy hair. When your hair does not get a sufficient amount of oxygen, nutrients, and minerals to produce healthy hair then the hair growth cycle of your hair is interrupted by it.
 
Because of this reason your anagen phase hair or your growing hair goes into the resting phase or telogen phase or dormant phase, After that, your hair cannot grow because the follicles are now dormant.
 
After some time your telogen phase hair starts falling out(Telogen Effluvium)  and you may see a noticeable hair loss.
 
Poor Blood Circulation
 

 

Poor Blood Circulation
 

A Weakened Immune System

 
 
Cigarette smoking directly damages your immune system as well, A Weakened Immune System can lead to diseases or illnesses that cause hair loss.
 
Because your immune system is weak, there is an increased risk of bacterial or fungal infections on your scalp, And these two reasons can impede your hair follicles from producing healthy hair.
 
 

Environmental Pollution

 
 
The smokes of a cigarette are harmful to your hair. when you everyday smoke at home or in a car, for some time the environment in your home or inside your car is polluted.
 
This pollution can damage your hair follicles. If you smoke more and more times a day, it’s harmful to your hair.
 
Environmental Pollution
 

Increased DHT

 
 
Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) is an androgen. DHT(1) helps to give men male traits. DHT is good for a man it helps such as maintaining your overall muscle mass and promoting sexual health and fertility. “All things are good in the balance”.
 
 If your body’s DHT level more increases than the normal level it will shrink hair follicles, It can lead to hair loss(men). Cigarette smoking increases the DHT levels in your body. If the DHT level in your body is increased then you may face hair fall problems and receding hairline.
 
 
 

Damaged Hair Follicles

 
 
The toxic aliments of tobacco are harmful to your hair. Cigarettes contain a high amount of nicotine.
 
This nicotine damage hair follicles while smoking. It not only affects your blood circulation and hormones but also increases the secretion of androgen in your hair, which causes your hair to fall.
 
 
 

Increased Head Oil Secretion

 
 
Dopamine(2) is an important chemical messenger in the brain that has many functions. When dopamine is released in large amounts, it creates feelings of pleasure and excitement.
 
Tobacco contains a high amount of nicotine. Nicotine helps to release a high amount of dopamine in your body.
 
When more dopamine is released in your body, adrenaline also starts released in higher quantities in your body, and because of this, oil secretion increases in your hair scalp, and this oil secretion blocks hair follicles, This makes the hair follicles unable to breathe air.
 
Nicotine affects your metabolism and disrupts the environment that is right for your hair to grow, eventually causing hair loss.
