Going to bed late and hair loss

Does poor sleep effect hair loss?

Sleeping can define your day. After a bad sleep you can hardly think about anything else but going to bed again. It’s not only about being physically tired but concentration is also a hard task. As long as it’s about one night it will probably not cause you big problems but there are more and more people to suffer from regular sleeping problems. Long term it may effect your health. Because of the complexity of human body the problems can be really diversified. It’s something like dominoes. One problem can easily cause another. It means that poor sleep can influence even your hair. Things change as we get older. As a child we usually don’t like going to bed but I guess all adults would be happy to have at least a short nap time after work. Sleeping during the day can make you feel better but it’s not the equal to sleeping at night. The reason is sleep cycle.

More and more people have problems about sleeping.

How many hours should we sleep?

There are countless articles on internet about this topic. That’s why I wouldn’t go too deep into this and I’d rather write about my own experience. Maybe you have similar ones. I think all of us is a little different. Also regarding how much sleep we need. As far as I see no articles can define one and only truth for all. It depends not only on age but working type and the working hours, too. It makes a difference if you have kids and even the actual season matters. 7-8 hours are said to be the best for adults generally. Is that okay for all of us? On the weekends I can afford getting up without an alarm clock. It happens quiet often to me to get up earlier than I wanted. And then I can decide… to wake up that early or sleep a little more. The strange thing is that if I choose to go back to bed (and make sure to sleep 8 hours), I feel really tired after getting up. If I take this early wake-up-thing as a sign and start my day a little earlier I have a lot of energy. And it still doesn’t make any difference about being an evening person. I’m still that kind. It’s like a misery to force myself to get up at 5am because of my phone alarm. But when it’s my body to wake up without any alarm, it seems that I’ve had enough sleep. Yes, even if it wasn’t 7-8 hours. Maybe you’ve also had such experience.

Working hours and poor sleep?

Yes, I do believe that there can be a relation. In the past I was working in different shifts so I could test what is better for me. To keep it short working in night shift is the worst thing. Everybody knows it but only if you have tried it, you know the real difference. I thought it would be great for me because I’m an evening person. I made it for a few years. As time went by enough sleeping was a non-existing category. It didn’t matter how long I slept, I was never ever relaxed. And it made me feel gloomy and did made signs on my appearance. On my skin and on my hair, too. Sleeping short or long… it was still poor sleep and I saw some relations between poor sleep and hair loss.

Nap time is great but sleeping only by day will probably not make you fully rested.

How can poor sleep cause hair loss?

It can have several negative effects on your health. But what’s this post got to do with hair care at all… you can ask. The answer is that some of these effects can influence your appearance. Your beauty and your hair, too. People who cannot have good sleep are often get too stressed, and sometimes depressed. In such a condition they can have poor appetite, as well. And because it’s like dominoes… poor appetite may lead to vitamin deficiency. Nutrients are necessary for overall health. Also for healthy and beautiful hair. Stress itself alone can cause hair loss. Click here to read more about hair loss and stress. The lack of vitamins and minerals can make the situation even worse. I would say that not poor sleep itself but its negative effects can create such conditions in which you may probably face the problem of hair loss.

Good sleep and noise?

Maybe I didn’t have up-to-date pieces of information before because I was really surprised when I read about people trying to fall asleep with noise. Of course it’s not just simple sound. It’s called white noise and it’s said to help about a better sleep for adults and children, too. It creates soothing sounds with static frequencies. Thanks to which you pay less attention to external sounds (like a barking dog). Nevertheless the story is not this simple because there are noise also with other colours, like pink, brown or grey. Special machines are available on the market to create these sounds in your bedroom. Offers have a wide price range as you can see:

And this is how white noise sounds:

If you are a person who prefers silence, you can make a try with a Himalayan salt lamp. Thanks to the negative ions that it releases, it can improve your sleep. Sleeping well and being relaxed or being exhausted all the time effect also other things in your life. It can be about some additional things regarding your life style. If you cannot have proper rest you will have no energy to make some sports, you will not longing for going outside and make a short trip for example. Maybe you won’t be in the mood to meet friends too often. And it’s not only about going to bed late, remember that sleeping too much can also be poor sleep. Try to know your body and find out what’s the best for you about sleeping habits. Search for methods of reducing stress and don’t hesitate to visit your doctor if you have such problems for a longer time.

Bad habits as hair loss causes

Can smoking cause hair loss?

Usually we tend to say that our century has turned into a very bad road with a lot of bad habits to ruin our health and social life, too. From some point of view it may be true because everything has become much more easier to get. The market is full of awesome (and less awesome) offers to buy and try, available to most of us. Nevertheless I’m not sure about some of the bad habits. What about one of the biggest market, smoking? It has an effect on our health and beauty as well. I can’t say it’s a good effect. And actually smoking itself has a centuries-old history. Can it have a bad effect also on your hair? Is it a possible cause of hair loss?

Long-haired woman and smoke.
Smoking has its own history but it doesn’t make it a healthy habit.


History of smoking

Although Christopher Colombus is said to be the first European to smoke, America discovered it ages before. It’s thought that smoking was common in shamanistic rituals as early as 5000 BC. Carvings from around 900 AD shows that Mayan civilizations also smoked and even a Mayan pot was found in Guatemala in 2012. It was full of cigars. After hand-made cigarettes and pipes, rolled and boxed cigarettes became available only from the late 1800s when mass production started and generated a huge demand on the market. It was the most popular at the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century. While you can see terrible pictures about the effects of smoking on boxes today, it was something „cool” before. Advertised also by famous persons. By now it’s become acknowledged that smoking is harmful in several ways but let’s get back to hair care. Does it have any bad effect on hair? Is it a possible cause of hair loss?

Smoking and your body

All of us are aware of the biggest harm it may cause: it can seriously damage your lungs. You’ve possible faced its bad effects on skin, as well. In this post I’m gonna write about something else. This is the effect smoking can have on vitamins in your body. We can say that the human body creates itself time after time by building millions of cells. To do that it needs essential vitamins and minerals, too. Unfortunately free radicals are also generated in our bodies. By toxins. Not only because of bad habits, like smoking but also through some normal metabolic processes. These free radicals can damage healthy cells and vitamins are the key to protect us by neutralizing them. The sad thing is that when you smoke the production of free radicals are faster. It means that your body uses  – and needs – more vitamins.

  • After smoking just one cigarette you can say good-bye to almost half of the recommended daily doses of Vitamin C. To the vitamin that can strengthen your hair.
  • This bad habit may decrease also the levels of vitamin B what is essential for healthy scalp.
  • It can influence on the absorption of dietary iron. The essential mineral that can help to prevent hair loss.
  • Vitamin E is, the „beauty anti-oxidant” can help you to have beautiful and younger skin, of course… but it can do a lot also about neutralizing the toxins generated by smoking. The level of this vitamin may also be lower if you smoke.

Vegetables and fruits
You can have the best vitamins from food. Keep a balanced diet.

The relation between smoking and hair loss

Smoking effects your body’s abilty to absorb vitamins and minerals. So I think it’s just normal logic. You’re body needs sufficient nutrients to build healthy cells. Also for growing healthy hair. Smoking decrease the levels of vitamins while increase the production of free radicals that destroy cells. It sounds obvious that smoking can have a bad effect on your hair, too. Smoking may be a reason of hair loss by reducing the levels of vitamins and minerals.

In the other hand, even if we say that smoking can take part in hair loss, it doesn’t mean that the ones who doesn’t smoke never face this problem. Hair loss is a common problem among both genders, several ages. And it’s not that simple to find the real reason. It’s not something to find out in a post, not even on one single visit at the doctor. Genetics, some diseases, infections, some medicines, stress or incomplete nutrition all can be a possible reason. And smoking can make the situation even worse.

A hand refuses cigatettes from another hand.
Ask for help and quit smoking.

I know that quitting smoking is not easy and a lot of people claim that it makes them less stressed. It’s said that only 3 out of 100 persons can do that. Nevertheless it’s never too late to make another try and in the meantime you can focus on taking vitamins. Smokers are adviced to take higher amount of Vitamin C. A balanced diet is also important because it’s the best to get the vitamins and minerals from food.

Before taking extra amounts of any nutritional supplements, ask for advice from a doctor.

What other bad habits may cause you hair loss?

Scalp massage III.

Scalp massage at home

After writing about the advantages of scalp massage and have a short sum up about what massage types you can choose from it is time to have a look at what you can do for your health at your home. Although there are some massage types that can be applied by a professional you still can use some techniques to reduce stress, improve the balance in your life and make a good effect on your hair and scalp. 😊And also if you have no time to travel regularly to a salon you still can enjoy the benefits of scalp massage by trying it at home. You can do it for yourself and your loved ones as well. I show three main ways starting from the least costly.

Your Beauty Hair about scalp massage at home

Scalp massage by fingertips
By massaging your scalp with your fingertips you can stimulate the blood flow and support the hair follicles. It is very usefull if you have problems with hair loss or thin hair. You can reach a good result with only 4-5 minutes of massage per day. To save some time you can do it also during shampooing or before shampoo. Some oils can be used if you like aromatherapy. Scents like lavender or mint can boost the effect and help about reducing stress as well. Start the massage from the hairline’s edge (from forehead) and go toward the crown with small circles and gentle pressure. Make your way across your scalp then riverse the direction and start from your neck. Repeat these movements from both sides.

Your Beauty Hair about scalp massage techniques at home

Scalp massage with using some tools
If you prefer or just have more belief in using some tool you can try several kinds for quiet low price. On the market special brushes can be found especially for scalp massage. The technique is about brushing your scalp from back to the hairline while you move your head a little left and right. After this you can repeat from the hairlines to the nape area and from the sides as well. By repeating the whole procedure three times you can have better effects. You can do some massage during shampooing as well given special scalp massage shampoo brushes are available too. Do this massage twice a week with gentle pressure.

Scalp massage II.

The main types you can choose from

After listing many advantages of scalp massage in the previous post I am gonna write about what types of scalp massages you can choose from. These types can be different because of the origin or using any oils on the head or not and also the techniques being used. Whatever you choose your body and also your hair will be grateful.

Your Beauty Hair about scalp massage and stress

Related the origin you can find following types:

Tibetian (Shirodhara): In this massage technique luquids have a relevant part. And liquid can be not only some oil but milk, cocconut water or even plain water too. The procedure itself is often started with body massage before massaging the head. A very effectice way of getting relaxed and reduce not only stress but other health problems, just like some eye diseases, memory loss, skin problems and even grey of hair. Another benefit is having a better sleep at night which is also very important in a stressful life period.

Indian (Champissage): It is still said to be a daily habit in India in order to help the balanced flow of energy and vitality. Champi is perfect to relax to whole body and improves overall health. With this technique the focus is on the blood circulation of the head but neck, shoulders, face and arms are also involved. The aim is the balance of the 7 chakras which can help you to reach being a balanced personality, maintain your health, get rid of aches in head, back or shoulders and reduce stress. Visit this page if you would like to read more about the 7 chakras. The procedure itself can start with massaging your back, shoulders arms and neck. The next step is scalp massage that closes with relaxing your face as well. It can be done without using any oils.

Scalp massage types on Your Beauty Hair

Regarding the points being massaged you can choose from:

Massaging reflex points: The basis of this technique is the belief that we have certain points of our head for every part of the body, including all of our organs. During the procedure your head and also your face will be involved and the aim is to help the operation of the whole human body. It is perfect to calm down and reduce stress while you can support your body.

Massaging only 1-1 points: If the aim is not just maintaining health but getting rid of certain health problems the therapist can choose which points should be slightly pressed. While reflex points of the reproductive organs placed on the crown, pineal body or the gonads could be stimulated by pressing reflex points rather on your face. So also this technique involves your face as well.

As you can see there are more types to choose depending on your needs, problems or beliefs. Also you can decide about trying a technique with or without oils or other liquids and you can enjoy the advantages of reduced stress and improved health. The common point in the listed ways is the presence of a therapist but in the next post I am gonna write about how YOU can apply scalp massage in your home.
