Hormonal changes have an impact on hair loss in women.
It has been shown that sex hormones, specifically testosterone, are directly related to the hair cycle.
This hormone is also present in women, although in smaller quantities.
When it affects a woman's hair cycle:
- Pregnancy and postpartum. In the first it favors it, since it has been seen that during pregnancy hair tends to grow. In the postpartum period, however, the hormonal factor can cause loss.
Hair loss due to hormonal causes can last up to seven months.

Include in your diet elements such as nuts, peanuts, almonds, and foods such as liver, cheese, sardines, cauliflower, green beans and egg yolk.
