Cambridge, Most of the causes of hair loss is the frequent use of chemicals, such as coloring, curling, straightening hair repeatedly or mis-use shampoo. But for smokers, the toxins in cigarettes also can trigger hair loss that makes fast bald.
The amount of nicotine and carbon monoxide in cigarettes have been found to restrict blood flow. This happens because each time increasing the amount of nicotine in the brain, causing the body to activate the stress hormone, thus freeing up stored fat into the bloodstream.
This can reduce the oxygen in the bloodstream. In fact, for optimal functioning hair follicles and produce hair growth at the normal level, cells must have oxygen, nutrients and minerals in sufficient quantities.

A study at Harvard University who studied 1241 middle-aged men, comparing between smokers and non-smokers. The findings showed an increase of dihydrotestosterone (DHT) at 13 percent and also increased 9 percent of testosterone in smokers.
The hormone DHT is the cause of androgenetic alopecia, ie baldness that often occurs in men by shortening the growth (anagen).
In addition, smoking can interfere with or damage the circulatory system is responsible for sending blood to the cells that actually from the hair follicle.
