Does hair color affect hair loss?

There is a lot of discussion over whether the color of a person’s hair is related to hair loss. As far as we know, there is no real link between the color of a person’s hair and hair loss. However, there is a difference in the number of hairs–blonde and light brown haired people have on 30,000 more hairs than a person with black or dark hair. There is a trade off though, darker hair tends to be thicker in quality and in turn, provides better coverage than lighter hair, which is typically very fine.

No matter the color, it is normal to lose a small number of hair each day as each hair is cycling between growth and shedding phases. However, shedding increase may be an early indicator of hair loss. An increase in hair shedding can be a result of many different things, and it’s important to find the source early.

Can exercise lead to or prevent hair loss?

Many people worry that working out too much can lead to hair loss. Others believe exactly the opposite – working out and staying in shape can protect the hair from falling out. The truth is that there is no clear link between exercise and hair loss. Eating healthy and staying active are important for your body to stay healthy and happy, and that in turn is important for hair health, but there is no known link between exercise.

What we do know is that exercise can briefly increase testosterone levels in the blood, but recent studies show the effect on hair appears to be very minimal. While there are no known links to hair loss and exercise, there appears to be more effect from common supplements like creatine or protein shakes. Both creatine and many protein supplements increase testosterone over a longer period and appear to have more of an effect on hair loss and thinning.
