LOSING SLEEP OVER HAIR LOSS JUST MAKES IT WORSE

8 May, 2019

Treat your hair mean and it won’t stay keen, it’ll be knackered. But we aren’t talking just using the right shampoo for your hair or cleansing properly after the gym, or even regular conditioning – you also need to treat it right from the inside. Hair responds to bad food and sleep-starved nights as much as skin. And the consequences of the latter can be catastrophic. Inadequate sleep has been proven to cause hair loss.

Sleep allows the body time to repair and rebuild, and that includes hair and the way it grows. Interrupted snoozing or sleep deprivation from partying all night can reduce levels of human growth hormone (HGH) which is a contributing factor in some cases to thinning and loss of hair, while the stress of not sleeping increases the risks of alopecia. The most extreme is alopecia totalis, a condition you don’t want. Hair falls out, quickly and suddenly, often including eyebrows and eyelashes.

The best way to limit the risks is by developing good sleeping habits, such as getting to bed at a consistent time in a dark, quiet environment. Keeping the temperature low also helps, as does investing in a comfy mattress – they don’t last forever. It’s best not to drink too much close to bedtime and turn your phone off. Better still, avoid looking at your phone for a while before going to bed.

Some men find sleep is disturbed by an itchy sensation in the scalp and face. Using a non-allergenic or medicated shampoo can help – ask your Jacks of London barber or your local pharmacist for advice. You could also review how you shave, checking if your razor is sharp enough and if you are reacting to the products you use. You may need to seek out some non-allergenic options. If it continues, see your doctor, who will be able to prescribe treatments or test you for allergens.

It may seem a bit mad to think that sleep can affect hair, but you’d better believe it. So start getting that shut-eye if you want to do right by your hair. And if you are losing sleep over your hair, get down to see one our experts at any of our award-winning Jacks of London barber stores.
