Hii everyone!

Welcome back to my channel!

In today's video I'm going to answer the questioncan Intermittent Fasting Cause Hair Loss?

Intermittent fasting is an eating pattern where you move between periods of eating and fasting.

There are no specific rules onwhich foods to eat, but ratherwhen you should eat them.

There are two schedules of Intermittent Fasting that are often used:

  • time-restricted feeding
  • alternate day fasting.

So for example, you don’t eat between 6pm and twelve noon the following day or you fast every other day.

So what changes can Intermittent fasting cause to our hair?

So first of all, I wanted to answer the question, 

Can Intermittent fasting cause hair to regrow?

There’s not enough research to show this.

Some of the benefits of Intermittent Fasting are:

  • Intermittent Fasting Can Reduce Insulin Resistance, Lowering Your Risk of Type 2 Diabetes.
  • Intermittent fasting improves various metabolic features known to be important forbrain health
  • Intermittent FastingMay be Beneficial For Heart Health
  • It can Help You Lose Weight and Belly Fat

Can Intermittent Fasting cause hair loss?

Though the benefits of intermittent fasting are still being studied, there's evidence that this type of diet plan has negative side effect, such as 
  • hair loss
  •  Anxiety
  •  and stress

Intermittent fasting can shock your body into Telogen Effluvium - this is a common type of temporary hair loss.

Telogen effluvium is the name for a common cause of temporaryhair loss due to the excessive shedding of resting or telogen hair after some shock to the system

 New hair continues to grow. Telogen hair is also known as a club hair due to the shape of the root.

There are a number of reasons that you could experience this type of hair loss due to a change in diet.

Interfering with your sleep:

Rumsey said intermittent fasting can also disrupt your sleep cycle or lead to restless nights. 

Multiple studies have shown that fasting candecrease your amount of REM sleep, which is believed toimprove memory, mood, and learning capacity.

Stress:

When your body undergoes a major dietary upset - this can increase the stress hormone cortisol. If you do not get your diet quite right you can experience stress due to nutritional deficiencies, calorie restrictions and psychological stress.

High cortisol levels are alsoassociated withfat storage, which is unhelpful if you're trying to lose weight. 

Calorie deficits:

It’s likely that you’ll be taking in less calories on an intermittent fasting diet.

This study  shows that restricting your calories: can cause hair loss.

Intermittent Fasting can upset your hormones

Hormones play a huge role in the hair growth cycle -

In simple terms, in women,  

An excess of androgens (which are male hormones)  which can occur for those with conditions such as polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) can cause hair loss.

If the hair growth cycle is shortened, it can result in the body losing hair faster than it can grow, which results in hair loss. 


NUTRIENT DEFICIENCY 

You may not realize it, but when going through a large dietary change, you could be missing out key nutrients and minerals that your body needs to ensure your hair remains healthy and strong.

So that’s the low down on Intermittent fasting!
