Simple and temporaryPhysical stress
Events such as surgery, trauma, car accident or even a severe case of the flu can shock your hair into going in to the telogen stage of the hair cycle. This type of hair loss happens when a stressful event pushes hair to enter this ‘shedding phase’, usually 3-6 months after the trauma has happened. The good news it that this is often not permanent. In this case, by the time your hair starts to grow back naturally, laser hair therapy most likely wouldn’t have had a chance to take effect. However, each circumstance will differ from person to person.Having a baby During pregnancy, the body becomes flooded with estrogen. During this time most women find hair loss stops. However, after the baby has been delivered estrogen levels fall significantly, which can often causes hair loss in women. Again, the good news is that this is only temporary and your hair should proceed to grow back to how it used to be.
Too much vitamin A
When your intake of vitamin A is too high, this can have a negative effect on your hair health. Vitamin A supplements or certain medications can all contribute to this occurring. This is often a reversible cause of hair loss, however if you cannot stop taking your medication or supplement, laser hair therapy may not work at its optimum ability to restore hair on your head in this scenario.
