I’m a 27 year old male. About 3 year ago, at the age of 24, I went to work abroad for a year. At the time of leaving home I had a full head of hair.
When I was abroad my diet deteriorated. During this time my hair became very unhealthy. It became brittle and it stared to fall out. I returned home 2 years ago and my diet has returned to normal. My hair’s condition has improved and it has stopped falling out.
Though it has improved, progress is very slow and it has not returned to its former condition.
Could you help me, please?
A normal diet should not have any significant impact on hair loss. If you were malnourished during your travels abroad, it may have had some impact. However, once you start the hair loss process, I have found that it is difficult to stop the hair loss process. Some have explained this phenomenon by analogizing to a light switch that is turned on, but can’t be turned off. You should have your scalp hair mapped for miniaturization to see it there is a pattern to this hair loss. You have a component of genetic hair loss which may not be related to the diet issue.
